No Grand Foreign Policy Vision? No sweat!

No Grand Foreign Policy Vision? No sweat! The GOP only complains. Now it’s Obama is thin on foreign policy, which translates means the President is not making the world safer for fossil fuel interests. “Muddler-in-Chief” is spoken with a wolfish grin. Stop with the “exceptionalism.” America’s foreign policies have had disastrous consequences for the past half century. Nonwithstanding, the Bay of Pigs fiasco, the discredited domino theory, and the 38th parallel, the Dumb Iraq War, the longest war in Afghanistan, and ISIS are all Cheney’s vision of sowing Democracy in the Middle East. Who welcomed us? Who did we liberate? Why are we suffering from the terrorism provoked by greed for oil? Who gained by a foreign policy vision that placed hundreds of thousands of US men and women in uniform stationed on foreign soil around the world? Never Forget warped into the deaths of thousands and permanent injury to tens of thousands of US soldiers, not to mention the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians. True, Obama ousted chemical weapons from Syria; weapons ISIS would be using today. True, Obama opened a door shut by a fifty-year cut-off-your-nose-to-spite-your-face policy with Cuba. True, Obama got China to agree to climate change controls and Iran is talking to us after fifty-years of a go-it-alone nuclear program. GOP ridicule talk is cheap. Bragging is for bullies. We need a foreign policy of listen, and think.             Richard Dorsey, Hacienda Heights, CA.
