Promising more, not less, US interventionism overseas, the president told the graduates of the US Military Academy at West Point:
[T]he question each of you will face, is not whether America will lead but how we will lead, not just to secure our peace and prosperity but also extend peace and prosperity around the globe.Translation: US will continue to use force overseas to remake the world in the neocon and "humanitarian" interventionists' image. But, considering the results of each and every intervention over the past 14 years, where is the "peace and prosperity" he promises. Afghanistan? Iraq? Libya? Syria? Ukraine? Mali?
Is anyone vacationing in a newly peaceful and prosperous Tripoli this summer?
