Barack Obama: A Foreign Policy That Fails by Trying to Do Too Much

Doug Bandow | Posted 09.01.2014 | Politics
Doug Bandow

The ultimate folly is the belief that people are infinitely malleable, that Americans have been anointed to shape and mold humanity against its will, and that there is nothing which cannot be achieved through a few bombing runs, an occasional invasion, and a thorough military occupation. Real leadership means being prepared not to get involved. Real leadership means not being flattered into war by other states proclaiming America's indispensability in solving their problems. Real leadership means allowing, indeed, expecting, others to take control of their own destinies. Foreign policy is a difficult business. In practice the administration has been foolish and feckless, often blundering along even when it has made the right decision, such as not to attack Syria. And its desperate desire to do something risks drawing it in by increments, a serious danger in Iraq today.

Is It Time for a 'Friendervention'?

We're all too polite when it comes to telling people how we feel, or sharing our opinions. We don't want to hurt people's feelings or make them mad. But it's far more maddening when someone won't tell you to your face what people are saying behind your back.

Reinvention: The Ultimate Self-Intervention

An intervention is a cry for reinvention. And a reinvention requires a significant self-intervention! This is so similar to the work we do when we're trying to reinvent our lives. This notion of self-intervention requires taking stock of the present and assessing the future.

The Three-War Doctrine

If the War Party wins in 2016, all bets are off. We will prepare to fight in the Eurasian heartland, the South China Sea, and the resource-rich lands of Africa -- because if we don't fight them there, we'll have to fight them here. Just when it seemed like we were about to give peace a chance, the United States will suddenly revert to a three-war doctrine.

Washington's High Priests: Why Mainstream Pundits Who Are Generally Wrong on Foreign Policy Continue to Pontificate

The pundits of the foreign policy establishment continuously poison public opinion and litter the public landscape with nonsense about a divine American mission in the world.

7 Reasons to Risk an Intervention

Heather Kopp | Posted 05.26.2014 | Healthy Living
Heather Kopp

Regardless of outcome, stepping in to urge treatment and set boundaries is a way of showing an addict just how far they've fallen at the same time that you're showing them how deeply you love them. Being part of such an event can be a profound, even sacred experience. If it doesn't change the addict, it might change you.

Restoring 'Valuing Life' as an American Value

As a people, we have gone from the outrage over the atrocities at Newtown and Aurora (and all those that preceded them and the daily shootings in gang-ridden neighborhoods) to a sense of not yet resignation, but certainly of war weariness.

My One Nightstand: A Story of Cancer, Addiction, and Furniture

My nightstand served as a holding tank for the turquoise kidney shaped throw-up trays I'd need over five years of chemo. It converted to a trashcan for all of the Kleenex used to wipe the vomit off my face. It displayed fish tanks, terrariums and cool lamps. It housed the first love letter I ever received. When I moved away from home, my nightstand naturally came with me.

Wherefore Romeo -- Dallaire, That Is!

Roméo Dallaire should be the hero of an opera. His story certainly has all hallmarks of genuine tragedy -- and it embodies many of the key themes of the last century and evokes the Syrian debacle as well.

Poverty is emotionally crushing, and stigma only adds to that burden. The poor are often disparaged as lazy and incompetent -- unable or unwilling to improve their own lot. Why don't they make better decisions for themselves?

The United States is once again on the brink of war in the heart of the Middle East. While the necessity of some kind of military intervention -- if only symbolic in nature -- is now evident, the risks are enormous.

Unfortunately, until the United States realizes that its informal overseas empire, and the military interventions needed to maintain it, is the primary cause of anti-U.S. terrorism, the excessively grandiose and counterproductive war on terror is likely to continue endlessly.

Obama administration policy toward Syria is a slow train wreck. Unremitting pressure from war-minded elites is pushing President Barack Obama closer to military intervention in the bloody civil war. Yet getting involved would be a fool's errand.
