'Cousins and Strangers: America, Britain, and Europe in a New Century,' by Chris Patten - The New York Times Book Review

Josef Joffe (Editor in Chief of Die Zeit, Hamburg and associated with the US Hoover Institute) has a destructive review of Chris Patten's book on Britain, Europe and the US as mentioned above. A "leading Conservative" should not doubt the axiom of the leading role of the US for a whole century to come, nor consider alternative viewpoints on international policy. Euro-Idealism-bashing is easy. And Joffe should have known better. Thanks to God, we have still some thinking conservatives. They are allies in my "pursuit of happiness", allowed to me by the USA Constitution. Submission is not happiness. "Britons nehehehever shall be slaves!"
