US ceased to be a super power after contributing to World War II.After that that status has been the in the mindset of US politicians and spooks who saw an enemy in every corner;took measures based on the above assumption that US is an international cop and such misadventures depleted US economy and nowhere has US been successful , be it Vietnam of yore and Pakistan/Afghanistan of late.
Instead of trying to run the country’s economy and governing the state , successive Presidents, barring JFK, landed US in further quagmire by intervening in in the assumed allied Allies’ internal affairs ,which they hated and achieved nothing in the process , be it economic prosperity or imagined ‘leverage’ over such countries ; in return, the Balance sheet is avoidable loss of precious American lives and Billions of US tax payers money.Tell me , which so called Allies have helped US in times of need?
As for Israel, Obama is doing what is morally Right and slowly building up good will for the US that US is well meaning and helps those indeed with out ideological tags. This , you should , as know non American countries welcome.They feel now US can be trusted rather than feared.What more a does Nation want?
What do you want to do with Russia?-it is down and out.China ,you have to live with the necessary evil,you need their markets for the welfare of your economy.
As for terrorism goes ,even the present steps of interfering in Pakistan Iraq and Afghanistan shall yield Vietnam results, nothing more.
Let US govern itself
World will take care of it.
World was here before US came into being and shall be despite US.
Set your economy aright by living within means, stop out sourcing, create more employment and desist printing US instruments and paper money with out adequate Gold reserves,stop using plastic money, shore up your inland security.
This is the route to salvation.
Making impassioned speech is one thing running the country is another.
NORFOLK, Va. – Sarah Palin on Sunday painted President Barack Obama’s administration as a cowering giant intent on surrendering the nation’s mantle as a superpower and willing to sell out its allies.
The former John McCain running mate addressed a paying audience of several hundred people in Norfolk and accused Obama of selling out ally Israel in over its naval blockade of Gaza and treating Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shabbily.
On May 31, Israeli naval commandos killed nine pro-Palestinian activists in clashes aboard a Turkish ship headed for Gaza, setting off a world outcry and forcing Israel to ease its three-year-old blockade.
She also said Obama lacked the resolve to stand up to Russia and China.
“Do they think, really, that we’re getting anything in return for all this bowing and kowtowing and apologizing? No, we don’t get anything positive in return for this,” Palin said at the event spearheaded by a Norfolk talk radio station.
“So while President Obama is getting pushed around by the likes of Russia and China, our allies are left to wonder about the value of an alliance with our country any more. They’re asking what is it worth,” she said.
