The Magic Is Over

No kidding:

Bernard Kouchner, the foreign minister of France and a longtime humanitarian, diplomatic and political activist, said this week that whoever succeeds President Bush might restore something of the United States’ battered image and standing overseas but that “the magic is over.”

(…)

Asked whether the United States could repair the damage it had suffered to its reputation during the Bush presidency and especially since the 2003 American-led invasion of Iraq, Mr. Kouchner replied, “It will never be as it was before.”

I believe that the 2004 election was the turning point. In 2000, most Americans had no idea what kind of malignant, dangerous psychopaths Bush and Cheney were (are), but by 2004 they had revealed their true colors for all to see… and we still re-elected them. I think that was the moment in which we became willing accessories to all of their crimes, and there’s really no way to take that back.
