Editorial on Asian Antipathy by Nguyen ’98 in Singapore Business Times

Thang Nguyen '98 had an editorial titled “Growing Asian antipathy for the global policeman” published in the Business Times, Singapore. In his article Nguyen commented on rising sentiments in Asia for America to fight its battles on its own turf – and to respect the national priorities of other countries. ” While most Asian leaders may support Washington's campaign, they have other domestic priorities that are more urgent to them than the fight against terrorists. Moreover, there is a perception that the U.S. is taking on the role of the world policeman in Asia. However noble the U.S. motives and intentions may be, many in Asia remain wary,” he said.
