The Wimps of War

In the NYT, Paul Krugman looks at Europe's unwillingness to blindly follow the US.

In the days ahead, as the diplomatic confrontation between the Bush administration and the Europeans escalates, remember this: Viewed from the outside, Mr. Bush's America does not look like a regime whose promises you can trust.

I have no idea how Americans can trust the Bush administration (it probably has a lot to do with CNN), but outside of the USA, from first-hand experience, there's almost no trust (which again, probably has a lot to do with the absence of CNN). Almost everything the administration says and does is met with large amounts of scepticism.
