I honestly do not think that we have really replaced our strategy towards autocrats devised for the requirements of the Cold War, but are also unwilling to be seen acting in that way. Obama is only demonstrating what a confused mess this produces.

All U.S. Forces should be based in America.

America should never offer military assistance unless a Congressional declared state of war exists or major genocide is going on.

America should never give arms to any group or country (again, unless a Congressional declared state of war exists).

America trying to police the world is getting both Ametica and the world nowhere.

If Bahrain has stability problems, let Bahrain fix them.
