I can’t believe that anyone is so out of touch as to say this: Obama: World wants to see U.S. lead. This is a CNN article on a Wolf Blitzer appearance.

The world wants the US to come back into the fold of nations and cooperate with other people. They have had over 7 years of the “US leading”, and they don’t want any more. Someone needs to sit him down with copies of the world press reporting on the US and explain that it will be a very long time before any nation or international organization trusts the US not to screw things up.

Our economy and military are broken. The dollar is in the toilet. We have a debt that would shame a third world country. We can’t “lead the parade”, we can’t even afford “uniforms for the band”.

We don’t have any credibility left in the world, and the US, as a country, is hated in a very large segment of the planet. Lead‽ The US will be lucky if we are still allowed to follow for a very long time.

The Stupidity Continues in Burma

Reuters reports that U.S. ships head for Myanmar as officials decry delay.

The Air Force has been landing supplies in Thailand, and the destroyer USS Mustin and the three-vessel Essex Expeditionary Strike Force have off-loaded some helicopters there and then headed for the coast of Burma.

The Essex Expeditionary Strike Force is based in Japan and is probably still the USS Essex (LHD-2), the USS Harpers Ferry (LSD-49), and the USS Juneau (LPD-10).
