Our Foreign Relations is Hurting America
In this world we have few true allies but many just wanting our money or protection; in my opinion our only true allies would be Austria, Canada, England, Israel, Japan, and South Korea with a couple of hopefuls to be our allies being Spain and Italy. I may have miss a couple of small counties but this is the group. In the Middle East we did have two friends being Egypt and Israel but since we didn't stand by Egypt when they needed us you can now count them as questionable. Israel is the only true Middle East ally we have but with the US leadership leaking classified details about their operations, who knows if they too we opt out. Currently our three biggest threats are China, Russia, and Iran and China has moved a Spy Ship off the coast of Hawaii with the Chinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijing’s nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counterbalance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific as reported by The Washington Times. According to USA Today Iran may be a month from a Nuclear Bomb and what has the world leadership done in the past five years to stop it; nothing but Paper Tiger Threats, the same as it has done with Libya; we had Leon Panetta saying the US may have to use military force against Iran but we know with this administration, that is nothing but another idle threat.
I am a believer in helping others and this includes other countries but first I believe in taking care of America above all others. In the world, we are the luckiest people to be born in America with all it's riches and freedoms which many in this world long for and dream. We do have a problem, we take our freedom and riches for granted, most in America are complacent to how good we really have it, and naive to the evil that exists in this world. We have had the lead in shaping this world for decades without anyone doubting us as the leader of the world, we did much good to bring freedom to as many countries as we can but now we are seen as weak. Not only are we seen as weak but we are supporting those who would want to destroy us with $18 billions in US aid. Did you know not only do we give the second highest amount of aid to Afghanistan for witch we have no accounting, we also give aid (not repaying debts) to China? We give aid to 109 plus countries, many of whom hate us and others who are considered terrorist; we give aid to 50% of the countries who are considered "State Sponsors of Terrorism". Out of the top ten countries who outwardly express they hate for the US the most, we give nearly $7 Billion in US Aid many being nations who support terrorism; do you see something wrong with this?
With as many idle threats made by the Obama Administration one threat they have kept true to is its attack on our military establishment. Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, recipient of the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, as well as other top retired officers, say President Obama’s agenda is decimating the morale of the U.S. ranks to the point members no longer feel prepared to fight or have the desire to win. There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him,” Brady told WND. When all you want is "Yes Men or Women" in your administration you are guaranteed to consistently screw up whatever you touch because you have no anchor to reality. When dealing with as many different countries in this world as we do, you need reality, this lack of living in reality along with political correctness is what caused the Ambassador's assassination in Benghazi. Just like President Obama has polarized and divided our country as no other president, he is doing the same within the military in which he has never spent one day to defend his country, and even the world. When our country promises defensive weapons to country (Poland) trying to defend themselves, you should never renege on it; further more joining with the aggressor (Russia) which was done by our president.
We have lost much of our credibility as a world leader due to bad foreign relations debacles from not providing what we promised, not protecting who we promised, waving paper tiger threats, and openly spying on our allies. Our leadership needs to come back to reality instead of living in a hypothetical academia world; we need to regain the trust and respect we have loss.
