Bush has little leverage to deal with abundant global crises, 7/12/06

Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, President Bushs foreign policy has been driven by blunt talk, a willingness to threaten or use military force, and a belief that American power can reorder the world. We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality, a White House aide famously told journalist-author Ron Suskind in 2002. Reality has bitten back. From the corpse-strewn streets of Baghdad to Irans uranium-enrichment plants, from Israels escalating conflicts in Gaza and Lebanon to North Korean missile launch pads, the White House faces developments that appear to be getting worse for U.S. interests.
