One of Tony Blair's closest foreign political allies [prime minister
of New Zealand, Helen Clark] has warned Britain and America that
they may live to regret unleashing the "law of the jungle" in
international relations when China becomes the dominant world power
later this century. . . .
"We saw the UN as a fresh start for a world trying to work out its
problems together rather than a return to a 19th [century] world where the
great powers carved it up ... Who wants to go back to the jungle?"
