Vatican paper asks if U.S. can retake world leadership role


(ANSA) – Vatican City, November 7 – President Barack Obama's
re-election is a sign that Americans seek continuity, but "the
palpable enthusiasm of Obama's first election is merely a
memory," the Osservatore Romano, the Holy See's official
newspaper, wrote in an editorial in its Wednesday edition.
The paper acknowledged that Obama faced daunting tasks
after his 2008 electoral victory, "taking the reins of a country
which, with terror, was facing an economic crisis without
precedent since 1929".
"Now the system is more solid, and this is certainly the
result of the current administration’s actions. But the labor
market still needs to be jump-started and, in the international
sphere, the withdrawal from Afghanistan needs to be completed
and the so-called Arab Spring needs to be managed and not merely
The paper also pointed out that the United States must
still combat terrorism, deal with the crisis in Syria and Iran
as well as find a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli issue.
In concluding its editorial, the paper asks: "Will a
country whose greatest energies are being focused on solving
internal domestic problems reaffirm its historic world
leadership role – a role which over the past few years has been
increasingly eroded?"
