The foreign policy slogan for this administration is:
Speak softly and if all else fails, employ the usual schtick.
On foreign policy, we are now worse off in the eyes of the world community than we were under Dubya. The Russians either ignore us or thumb their nose at us on international issues. Under Dubya, at least we were feared in the Arab world. Now we are ridiculed and scorned. Iran marches on in its pursuit of nuclear weapons, and North Korea is more arrogant and ornery than ever. Our national security secrets are leaked almost at will, and our ambassadors are murdered or are consorting with under-age prostitutes. For this we got FOUR MORE YEARS? For this they want Hillary Clinton in the White House in 2016?
Male bovine scatology.
All, it sounds like we are really mad now and plan on issuing a "harsh" statement. Really? Obama has zero respect from the rest or the WORLD! The only people that "like us" are those receiving aid from the U.S. and even in that instance is not always the case. We have three more years of this inept administrations attempt at foreign policy. Pretty scary if you ask me...
'White House spokesman Jay Carney, in unusually harsh language, said China had "unquestionably" damaged its relationship with Washington."
"We consider the attempts to accuse Russia of violation of U.S. laws and even some sort of conspiracy, which on top of all that are accompanied by threats, as absolutely ungrounded and unacceptable," Lavrov said."
"Members of Congress so far have focused their anger on China and Russia, not on Obama's inability to get either country to abide by U.S. demands. However, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said in an interview with CNN on Monday that he was starting to wonder why the president hasn't been "more forceful in dealing with foreign leaders."
