PHILLIPS: Innocents abroad: The clueless Obama regime
Question of the Day
That button actually said “Overcharged.”
That was the button that was meant for the American people.
Americans elect presidents based on domestic issues. Whether they are ready or even like it, the president must become an expert in foreign policy very quickly.
Under Obama, as an international superpower, America is in decline. We are feared by our allies and laughed at by our opponents and rivals.
America does have the opportunity to upset a rival — that is, if Obama has the sense and courage to do it.
America has an economic rival called BRIC, an economic bloc that is made up of Brazil, Russia, India and China. Brazil is led by President Dilma Rousseff, a former Marxist guerrilla and lover of Cuba and Cuban-style Marxism. She hates America.
America’s relationship with Russia has been destroyed by Obama’s incompetence. China sees America as an empire in decline and is moving in to the western Pacific to fill the power vacuum as the U.S. withers.
And then there is India.
In 2012, the BRIC nations began a plan to move away from using the dollar as the world’s reserve currency to a basket of currencies. This is certainly not in America’s best interest as, among other things, it will result in higher interest rates for Americans and higher interest payments on our national debt.
India is situated between two nations that, at best, could be described as America’s rivals — or perhaps at least with one could be described as America’s enemy.
India balances against China, which lies to its northeast, and Pakistan, which is arguable an American enemy. The Taliban is essentially a creation of the ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence service. Islamic terrorists flow into Afghanistan through Pakistan, and strike at American troops and Afgans who want freedom. Then they slink back into Pakistan, mostly immune from American attack.
