Nathan notes that Bush has been dismantling international accords. Exactly. Nathan writes:

The GOP has long been split between internationalist and isolationist wings, and to go unilateralist seems to satisfy both. We remain involved in international affairs, at least as far as our dictates go, and for trade agreements. However, we refuse to further entangle ourselves in any treaty that would limit our sovereignty or freedom to act.

This is a problem. We shouldn't be so passionate about our 'national interests' that they preclude working with other nations. We're bad neighbors right now, and in some ways a big bully. We're not citizens of the world, we're citizens of America. Ugh.
