Foreign Minister Bob Carr with New Zealand Shadow Foreign Minister the Hon Phil Goff in Canberra on February 25, 2013. They discussed the Pacific, the Middle East and New Zealanders’ long-term residency in Australia.
The entrenched view of Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States from 1913-1921, is that he was a prophet who wanted to make the world safe for democracy, his vision repudiated by a war-weary American people.
I have a different view. I believe Woodrow Wilson was incontestably the worst president in US history. The worst, because the damage he did outweighs that of any other. This includes George W. Bush, who in response to September 11 started wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
