It’s kind of pointless to argue with Thomas Friedman but in today’s column he seems to be arguing that if only Europeans hadn’t developed such an irrational dislike of the US, Russia and China wouldn’t have been able to sabotage the attempt to impose sanctions on Zimbabwe. Let’s see how you like that, you Europeans – you stopped being our friends and now look what’s happened! Huh? I am really unclear on how Friedman thinks higher favorability ratings for the US among European publics would have stopped Russia and China from vetoing the Zimbabwe sanctions bill in the UNSC.
