As world leaders took the podium last week at the U.N. General Assembly, we were treated to a lot of bluster and some theater, but not much assurance that the world is heading down a peaceful path. And there were many offending speakers.

In the case of President Donald Trump, had he been anywhere other than the United Nations, his performance might have been entertaining. But his taunting of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as “Rocket Man,” along with his threat to “totally destroy” North Korea, abandoned all pretense of diplomacy and was more reminiscent of the combative challenges of Nikita Khrushchev than the reserved and modulated presentations of Dwight Eisenhower.
