Murphy's Law: May 27, 2000


A new report by the prestigious International Institute for Strategic Studies has called recent US foreign policy into serious question.

The report rejected French fears of US global hegemony, noting that the US has "had only modest success in defending its core interests".--Stephen V Cole
