Nationalism won't maintain USA hegemony

Reader comment on item: [Samuel Huntington and] American Purposes In Iraq

Dear Mr. Pipes,

I applaud your clarity in this article. But I don't agree with your conclusion. If America is to maintain its long-term sustainable influences across the world, it must overcome the impression that it only seeks what it needs. Justice and fairness, however subtle or undesired by the powers-to-be, the world is not the USA and the USA is not the world, must be exercised to show 4 billion populations in the aftermath of WWII and great strides of the 20th century for free countries and campaigns of democracy, that each country can charter its course, seek economic hegemony, engage in healthy discourses to better itself, and left to rule its nation-states, without background carrots and sticks from us.
