Comments on: Obama’s Afghan test http://blogs.reuters.com/thinking-global/2013/02/01/obamas-afghan-test/ Mon, 20 May 2013 19:02:41 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: usagadfly http://blogs.reuters.com/thinking-global/2013/02/01/obamas-afghan-test/#comment-263 Sat, 02 Feb 2013 01:23:58 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/thinking-global/?p=201#comment-263 The simple fact is that aggressive pro-war politicians in the USA, supported mainly by Israel, have drained the country of financial, military and psychological resources. Now, their primary focus is to carry out a war on Americans who want no more of their “necessary” wars. The conflict is increasingly domestic, rather than foreign.

Unfortunately, American allies who have actually worked with the US will pay the price for Middle Eastern intransigence and the world can expect a generalized withdrawal of US forces from foreign deployment for perhaps a generation. It is very unlikely that American militarists will prevail domestically and their continued refusal to acknowledge majority rule inside the USA guarantees an anti-interventionist tilt to US policy for the next generation.

The future burden will land squarely on other nations. It would be a big mistake to count of significant US military involvement unless the USA proper is attacked. So scoping of global ambitions is paramount. The world has changed and will change further at an accelerated pace.
