With President George W Bush's "war on terror" mostly discredited, it is in Asia where the United States, instead of being rendered a sub-theme to China's historic rise, is totting up success stories, from North Korea to a potential breakthrough in India-Pakistan ties.
In this "changed constellation", a new Middle East is struggling to be born, which is, paradoxically, a legacy of the George W Bush era, except it is far different from what the US president had in mind.
