NYT: 'An anchorless world'

From Roger Cohen at the New York Times:
BERLIN — At dinner the other night, perusing the debacle that is Syria, a German friend observed: “It’s the post-American world — and that means chaos.” We were joined by John Kornblum, the former U.S. ambassador to Germany, whose verdict was similar: “What you’re seeing is the steady break-up of the postwar system.”
Interesting read. Be sure to continue through at least some of the comments -- there were over 400 as of this morning.
