Mitt Romney is an expert on foreign policy. Unlike Sarah Palin, he DOES know the location of Siberia. Mitt once again defended his comments concerning events in Libya which resulted in death of an American ambassador. The former governor believes the United States must lead rather than allow events to occur. He believes the US can exert pressure on Middle Eastern nations.
As I recall, Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld urged the United States to invade Iraq and bring democracy to people of the region. Yes, Mitt, we did exert leadership and the result was-chaos! The United States can NOT compel Middle Eastern nations to take actions which they regard are the opposite of their goals. There are times when powerful nations should allow events to unroll, do their best to have some influence, but recognize the LIMITS OF POWER!
