Obama Administration Still Committed to Asia Pivot

    Does anybody really believe that China’s long term plan includes being a partner with the U.S? Their plan includes world domination and weakening the U.S. Wait until they partially back their currency with gold and see what happens to the fiat U.S. dollar which is backed by a printing press. The end of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency is their first step – of many.

    “The United States of America will be there—reliable, constant, strong and steady—for the long term,” said Rice.

    I don’t think any of our Allies think Obama has their back. (Poland, Israel, Saudi Arabia, etc…) So why would the Asian countries staring down the barrel of a Belligerent Chinese Tyranny, be so foolish as to trust Obama to have their back?

      Rice=another vacuous twit in a skirt, like Val and Powers. Obama’s put women in jobs that ought to have tough men in them, or at least a tough woman like Kirkpatrick, Albright, and Clinton. Instead, he puts in these non-threatening mother figures that blather about human rights and couldn’t project toughness if their lives depended on it.

      “The United States of America will be there—reliable, constant, strong and steady—for the long term,” said Rice.

      Does Susan Rice really believe anyone believes that about the USA?

      After all, Obama’s transformed USA has seriously miffed Canada (Arctic issues and Keystone pipeline); and Mexico.
      Pivot to Asia? How about a pivot to our physical neighbors!

    Words . . . words . . . . words. This administration thinks words are actions. Our Asian allies aren’t fooled one bit.

    The “pivot to Asia” is completely vacuous. As is the Middle East, everyone knows the US is abandoning foreign policy because Obama is bored with it. So regional tensions are rising, along with arms races.
