A World Without America

Power Line - Scenes of a Disaster: "The Daily Mail quotes an associate professor at Chiba University, who is in Ishinomaki with the Japan Emergency Team:
'I think the death toll is going to be closer to 100,000 than 10,000.' ... He said the Prime Minister was 'a wonderful man in many ways' but indecisive as a leader: 'In yesterday's press conference on the nuclear reactor, he looked like he was going to cry, like a man having a nervous breakdown.

'Where is the sense of urgency? We need somebody to take charge. We've had an earthquake followed by fire, then a tsunami, then radiation, and now snow. It's everything.

'There is nothing left. The world needs to step in. Where are the Americans? The Japanese are too proud to ask, but we need help and we need it now.'
Where are the Americans? I sincerely hope that this lament is unwarranted, but it is a cry we are hearing around the world. In Libya, Qaddafi reportedly is on the verge of dealing a death blow to the insurrection."
I continue to bet that everyone in America is too busy watching Charlie Sheen to notice they're being missed...
