The Beautiful Game …

Slowly unfolding of late is a different sort of World Cup: shaming the Americans.

The latest results:

Italy: Indicted 31 Americans for the grab and snatch grab of a Muslim cleric.

Germany: Issued arrest warrants for 13 Americans in connection with the rendition program.

Russia: Attacked American unilateralism at a meeting of the heavies.

England: Refused to match the US troop surge in Iraq.

France: Admitted that a nuclear Iran poses no threat to Israel or its neighbors.

Of course, the list goes on and on, but as the NATO talks over Afghanistan make clear, few expect to match the US in own-goals
