Al Salamu 'Alaykum.
The United States of Stupid just won’t learn. Talk of biting the hand that feeds you.
The latest enemy in the eyes of the world’s biggest thug is
. Barack Obama wants to “counter” China China’s growing influence in Asia. So, he is sending 250 marines on 6 month tours "down under" (to Australia) starting next summer. Understandably, US is not amused. In typically subdued Chinese fashion, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin questioned whether expanding the military alliance (with Oz)“is in line with the common interest” of countries in the region. And the best part is that China China is that self-same country where Hillary Clinton made a pitch for buying up more debt. US
Not only the Chinese but even Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul spoke out against this amazingly dumb move by the American Prez. He made some pertinent comments: “We are so broke and there’s no hesitation with this administration or with previous administrations to continue to go in more and more countries,” Paul said. “My position has been very clear, we spend way too much money overseas, it’s a good place to start bringing the troops home from around the world.”
By the way, recently the
US envoy to India called both China and the “enemy”. So I guess that soon they will be sending some of their troops to one of our neighboring countries. India
