This is not about a wardrobe malfunction during Dancing With The Stars...
I had a thought, when noticing copious coverage of an interview with the Syrian president by a British newspaper (an obvious choice, if the guy wanted to send a message). He warned against other countries meddling in his country’s internal affairs (ie. helping anyone to overthrow his dictatorship).
This made me wonder why one never reads about major nations, such as China, Brazil, or India meddling in other nation’s affairs. All are successful, wealthy, proud, and capable of meddling. But, they leave that up to America and Europe, and occasionally Russia.
My next question, which arises out of the first one, is why Europe feels the need to meddle? It has enough problems of its own to keep its leaders busy. Perhaps, it is a historical thing: once started, it is difficult to throw off the habit. Of course, everyone knows why Americans meddle...
