In a world that is said to be "on fire" owing to multiple wars and political aggression, do we need a global policeman?

The author of The Will to Lead: America's Indispensable Role in the Global Fight for Freedom, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, thinks so - and the only option would be the United States.

"You could start by asking, who else?" says Rasmussen, also the former secretary general of NATO. "The UN is too weak. A declining Russia is too aggressive. A rising China is still only a regional power."

"Who else can restore law and order in the world? You only have the US."
