Here it is, come and get it. Petra Cahill of MSNBC reports today how the US is losing favour by many around the world. This is the beginning of a series of articles. This can be an eye opener for some, confirmation by some and controversial by all.
This is good reading.
I must add only in a Free Press can such a damning series be published. In a Free Press one can publically examine the direction our elected leaders have taken our countries. In a Free Press one can not only judge the pulse of population with regards to domestic and international policies but openly debate effectiveness.
If the US withdrew to it's borders and brought home most if not all military personell what would happen throughout the world? The American presence is a deterent to some and a horror for others.
A documentery produced by Mitch Anderson and Roy Werner released worldwide in 2009 (available in China and Chinese) which discusses the American role around the world using an aggressive approach opposed to Soft Power. Since WWll American leaders made a decision that Soft Power wasn't working. America had been dragged into two world wars in one century following this approach. If the current policy doesn't work sense alone dictates an opposite stance will work.
Once again it depends on when you ask, where you ask and how you ask. One has to take sides. There is no middle ground.
