Comments on: As U.S. influence in Asia falters, allies increasingly look to themselves http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/07/31/u-s-influence-in-asia-is-faltering/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: brotherkenny4 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2015/07/31/u-s-influence-in-asia-is-faltering/#comment-1092493 Mon, 03 Aug 2015 20:07:23 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=42392#comment-1092493 You have to be magnanimous and fair minded to be a true leader. The US has been many decades at the fascist corporate profit game. There is no other country that should want to follow that. Besides, what is wrong with people having self determination of the political and diplomatic and military efforts needed to secure their own countries? Many of their enemies and allies have been made by their own hands. Really, US leadership was lost under Truman and his support of the fascist corporatism was the beginning of the end. We have not lead anything since but have been pursuing a non-invasive type of imperialism.

We don’t have to be dragged anywhere. We can just leave.

China is touching the tip of the Middle-East through the Gwadar port close to Pakistani port of Gwadar.

India was expected to be coming to close to NATO. But BRICS have flung a brick into the works – in the light of an Indian becoming the first head of BRICS Bank headquartered in Shanghai. Sooner or later the world could be shanghaied by China with BRICS Bank.

Washington loading too many eggs in the Iranian basked through the nuke deal is akin to shooting oneself in the forehead – simply because Iranians – Shias are a mere 9% of Muslims the world over. The Sunnis – the rest hate Shias’ guts.

All these developments lead one to wonder as to whether the thinking heads in Langley have gone radioactive and hence bonkers.

More than any thing America will have to loosen its grip over UN.This is the one thing for most of the countries afraid of America and they only pretend or avoid important issues of the world.Say for example often going to world court to punish leaders.American influence on UN,world bank and world court has displeased many countries,not only Asia.

It seems America lacks in deeper study of Asian countries.Look at Burma is not coming into fold.So are Bungladesh and Shree Lanka with doldrums.Though India has nonaligned policy but is inclined towards Russia.And India has agreed for collective security under China.This is all because of the fear due to what America has done in Iraq, Libya,Ukraine etc..Look at Israel is going out of clutch of America.Certainly there are flaws in American foreign policy in time of both Bush and Obama.All this will reflect on trades and economics of America in the long run.To day there are news Ouzbekistan has cancelled security deal with America.America will have to learn how to live as friend than boss.

Our first and foremost priority should be staying ahead of everyone else, but we can’t and we shouldn’t do EVERYTHING and protect EVERYONE alone.

Who cares if we have “influence” in Asia. Do we need to be the world’s boss? If I go to a concert, do I need to influence the other audience members? If I go camping with my family, do I need to influence the nearby camps? The far camps?

Take care of America first. Quit worrying about influence. Influence comes from being a good strong country at home, and having something people want. It doesn’t come from patrolling the world or swinging stupid arms deals that end up giving nukes to Israel and Pakistan (that happened). Under the guise of “influence.”

Boo hoo. It’s about time these countries stepped up and defended THEMSELVES. There is absolutely no excuse for these countries to have let their military get into such pitiful states that they are in. The United States can not and simply will not be the world’s only military for our allies. They want to be part of an alliance they need to build there own stuff too.
