"This was Obamas task and he has succeeded.America is no longer a Superpower."

America is no longer a superpower. Led by President Obama, its retreat on the world stage has been sudden, swift and stunning.

His administration is actively pursuing a foreign policy of detente and self-abnegation. Washington no longer wants - or believes it is possible - to remain the last, sole hyperpower.

"In an era where our destiny is shared, power is no longer a zero-sum game," Mr. Obama told the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday.

"No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed. That is the future America wants."

It also is the future the United Nations wants. For decades, Turtle Bay has been a major source of anti-Americanism. The majority of its member states are not genuine democracies. Rather, they are a grim collection of Third World tyrannies, socialist dictatorships and quasi-kleptocracies. They care little for human rights, democracy and peace.

The United Nations' recent record is abysmal: the genocide in Darfur, China's brutal repression of Tibet, Russia's war of aggression against Georgia, Hamas' relentless rocket attacks on Israeli towns and villages, Iran's crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators, Saudi Arabia's systematic persecution of Christians and Venezuela's efforts to spread authoritarian socialism across Latin America - all this has been met with little or no action by the international body. The United Nations is useless.

Yet, the one thing it has sought to create is a multipolar system, one in which American power is contained and, eventually, rolled back.

The champion of the West must be laid low.

I'm scared for what's going to happen if we don't get another Reagan soon. Give it one or two more presidencies after Obama of this level of weakness, and we won't even remember how to make or use nuclear weapons effectively.
