Obama Downsizes America Internationally
Please see: “After the fall: What do you do when you conclude America is (temporarily or permanently) kaput?”
“The United States has taken a political turn which, at least for the next four years, will guarantee that it does not play the role of a great power mindful of and willing to protect its own true interests, to support its allies, and to combat its real foes. On the contrary, through inaction or active effort the leadership of America will take counterproductive actions that achieve the opposite result. And there are certain factors — radical ideological hegemony, a weak economy and growing debt, structural social changes, the weakness and disorganization of the opposition — that may make this situation regarding America’s international behavior and policies a long-term, partly irreversible condition. In other words, we don’t know if America is finished as the world’s leading power, but we do know that it will not have leadership and certainly not leadership in a good direction for a while and perhaps will never fully recover.”
“In short, this current (voluntary, not inevitable) decline of the United States places a lot of people at risk. The question is whether there will be crises in which bad and weak American performance makes things worse.”
“Here, however, is the main point I wish to communicate: Americans can debate whether this shorter-term vacuum of responsibility and longer-term decline is happening, but much of the world already takes this outcome for granted.”
A downsized America internationally is the inevitable result of a downsized economy burdened with debt greater than 100% of GDP with no end in sight. A downsized America is also Obama’s desired ideological result. The Left sees America as force for bad in the world.
It is exactly as Dinesh D’Souza predicted in 2016. Obama is using debt to downsize America. [If you have not seen the movie, I strongly recommend it. Most of the movie is from Obama’s book. Much of the movie is Obama reading his book. without limitation, 2016 is on Netflix.]
Obama’s downsizing of America does not just affect us, it affects the entire world.
Because of Obama’s downsizing of America internationally, our enemies and the tyrants are emboldened and our allies and friends are frightened. The world will be a much more dangerous place and much more hostile to liberty and democracy.
Do you think the leaders of Iran lie awake at night worried about what Obama, Hagel and Kerry are going to do?
