For the last 500 years the cockpit of world history has been Europe. Not anymore; today it is the Near East. War in Afghanistan, rumors of war in Iraq, conflict between Israel and the Palestinians will determine the course of the great issues of our time: terrorism, energy supplies, the spread of democracy, prospects for peace. Charles Krauthammer, a Pulitzer Prize winning syndicated columnist and a regular weekly panelist on Inside Washington, contends that September 11 woke us from a decade-long holiday from history, during which time we conducted a bubble diplomacy to parallel our bubble economy. The bubble burst on September 11, 2001. There is now a new world to build.
