Still think Obama will be no different?

Former Navy Secretary Richard Danzig, who is expected to be a national security adviser if Obama is elected, says Winnie the Pooh provides a model for US foreign policy, saying

The future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else.

Works for me.

    They still all want to fight “The War on Terror” what is that if not a wonderful get out for foriegn invasions large and small? So change your tactics but keep up the foriegn incursions. Sounds like more of the same in my eyes.

    Or maybe the ruling class sees the wars as counterproductive now. Not unlike what happened in South Africa when apartheid fell. It could happen.

    There’s a lot of money to be made from war, we have war orientated economies, the arms industry and its linked industries employ a lot of people. All the big oil companies are now signing contracts with Bagdad to suck the oil out quicker. We could do the same in Iran, the only losers are the people of those countries and so far the people of the developed countries haven’t been too worried about them and as long it it produces cheap oil and other resources I think it might just continue that way.
