Obama Aims To Change World Perceptions Of U.S.

Posted by Kendall Harmon

President Obama started putting his mark on U.S. foreign policy from his very first hours in office. He quickly and deliberately presented a more conciliatory, multilateral approach to world affairs, analysts say.

While trying to grapple with a global economic meltdown, the new president initiated immediate reviews of U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq. He started to open diplomatic channels with previous enemy states such as Cuba and Iran. He reached out to Europe and sought to thaw U.S.-Russia relations.

Bowing to a Saudi tyrant, funneling money to keep the corrupt Castro dictators in power in Cuba, closing Gitmo with no plans on how to deal with the people held there and keeping the policy of rendition in place while listening to Ortaga damn America (may be Obama thought for a moment he was back with Rev Wright, daja vue alover again) is not the type of change we need!!
