I don't really know if that is true because it his hard to separate the presidential foreign-policy from the State Department that carries it out.
Our foreign-policy is in fact a disaster. I will not discuss the litany of failures and deliberate Obama programs designed to diminish American power and influence.
I simply wish to point out that our own allies are fighting among themselves in Southeast Asia over ocean territory that China is claiming.
Our long time historic allies of Taiwan, the Philippines, Japan, South Korea and a more recent ally Vietnam are all fighting each other over the rights to the South Pacific.
This is preposterous and only occurring because of America's deliberate weakness in the world. The United States has allowed North Korea to fire rockets over Japan. We have defensive weapons in place and did not use them. We did nothing when North Korea sank a South Korean ship. We did nothing when North Korea fired on a civilian population on a South Korean Island.
We have stood by while China has bullied candidates for president in Taiwan elections.
We have not made our military presence significant in any of this area, such as building new bases. In fact we have been retreating from bases in South Korea, Japan and the Philippines.
It should be obvious that American weakness not only encourages our opponents to be more belligerent it weakens existing alliances significantly.
President Obama is successful in his campaign to diminish the United States. But he is incapable of understanding that his policy makes the world more dangerous.
