  1. American leaders must learn that in foreign affairs they have to manage diversity not create a new world order after their own image. Tough talk and threats won’t work anymore. The neo-conservatives have rather painfully learned from Iraq and Afghanistan the limits of military power. The lessons of Vietnam also seem to have been lost on the present generation of American leaders in Congress and The White House.–Din Merican

  2. Quote:- “The neo-conservatives have rather painfully learned from Iraq and Afghanistan the limits of military power”

    For all the 21st Century Yankee-bashing that is the flavor-of-the-month for the moment, I shudder to think what would have happened to all the small, medium sized, militarily weak nations had the Soviet Union or NAZI Germany together with Japan were the dominant World powers after WWII.

    For all their faults, for all the Johnnies-come-lately like Donald Trump, the USA was by any measure a benign world power so much so that other current world powers were given an opportunity, the space, the time to rise.

    World powers like Russia and to some extent China and even pretenders like North Korea for all their swagger should know that had the US of A being less than benign immediately post WWII, these countries would not be what they are today.

    If the United States, especially their presidents feel frustrated and even helpless for having lose control of the critical geo-political issues of the day and therefore less “Great”, they only had themselves to blame.

    Geo-political politics is no different from street gang turf wars, only different in scale. Once a rival gang is able to mount a challenge, it will.

    Donald Trump is 60 years too late.

  3. Has American learned anything from Iran Shah, Saddam Hussien, Fidel Castro, Ngô Đình Diệm, Nicaragua Contra, etc?

    With more ex-military folks joining politics, many of these people view of the outside world are from Iraq and Afghanistan war experience. Hence, you hcan’t to help think Republican politicies are shape to be suspicious of the world outside US and only military can solved all problems.

  4. America policy greed is driven by the power of its mighty military ware in the name of democracy and freedom, rather the higher level of the grey matter in the name of humanity and peace.

  5. …And ,as long as they can have their ways and dictate its policy greed agenda unilaterally with little obstacle, through proxy war and avoiding substantial casualty of its own citizens, America will never learn.
