beyonslayed: c-bassmeow: beyonslayed: This post is wack cause Obama was full strength imperialism if anything Trump’s (unintentionally) impeding the US from exercising its might i agree except with the last part cus Trump is expanding war in a few more countries as well as increasing drone strikes by hundreds of percentage points so what am i missing?   wanting to tank NATO, alienating European allies, tearing up the Iran deal, picking a (more overt) fight with China , leaving the UN human rights council, etc That may be true but there is again many counterfactuals to this narrative that trump is impeding the US’s ability to exercise its might. He wants to invade Venezuela and had to be talked out of it even tried to convince the Colombian President and even mentioned it in meetings despite his aides pleading him not to , he has warhawks as advisors who will, mark my words enter us in more wars or proxy wars, The Syria bombing and military efforts, he may be alientatint NATO but he also had their troops stationed around Russia’s borders despite liberals claiming he’s soft on Russia, and again he has increased military actions in more countries and increased drone strikes so tearing up deals doesn’t mean much when we are still the military bully of the world killing more innocent brown civilians then before. I hate Obama but still . what you said is partly true by establishment PR friendly standards and yes he’s scaling back on some things (some which are good like environmental agreements). he’s throwing over the chess game that establishment types set up but he’s actually much worse in other areas. I don’t think he’s damaging US imperialism but just taking it in a different direction. His regime will support right wing governments around the world and he will as all presidents do arm terrorists and paramilitary groups. : STRENGTH MPERIALISM beyonslayed: c-bassmeow: beyonslayed: This post is wack cause Obama was full strength imperialism if anything Trump’s (unintentionally) impeding the US from exercising its might i agree except with the last part cus Trump is expanding war in a few more countries as well as increasing drone strikes by hundreds of percentage points so what am i missing?   wanting to tank NATO, alienating European allies, tearing up the Iran deal, picking a (more overt) fight with China , leaving the UN human rights council, etc That may be true but there is again many counterfactuals to this narrative that trump is impeding the US’s ability to exercise its might.

🔷End of an Error🔷 President Donald Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the U.S. is leaving the Iran deal marks the end of what his predecessor, Barack Obama, considered his main foreign policy legacy. Trump will earn credit from his supporters for keeping his promise. But in truth, the Iran deal was undone by its own terms. It did not stop Iran from enriching uranium; it did not stop Iran from building a nuclear weapon, eventually; and it did not stop Iran’s global aggression. In fact, the Iran deal was not even a deal at all. It was never signed by any of the parties (the U.S., Iran, France, the UK, Germany, China, and Russia). It was unclear about crucial subjects like ballistic missiles, because the “deal” was described differently by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and by the UN Security Council Resolutions that were meant to implement it. And, crucially, it was never sent to the U.S. Senate for ratification. Obama’s disregard for the Treaty Clause of the U.S. Constitution was of a piece with his general disregard for the constitutional constraints on the power of the federal government and the presidency. His refusal to submit the agreement to Senate scrutiny, and his party’s abuse of the filibuster to prevent even a weak Senate vote, deepened the damage that Obamacare — his other struggling “legacy,” in domestic policy — did to American civic culture. More than Obama’s autocratic style, what Trump ended is Obama’s legacy of appeasement. Barack Obama came to power convinced that the United States was at best a negative force in world affairs, and at worst the cause of the world’s problems. He believed that America could be a force for good, but only if it renounced its traditional allies, abandoned its principles of freedom, and gave up its national interests in favor of rising regional powers elsewhere. “The United States no longer issues empty threats. When I make promises, I keep them,” Trump said. Thus ended Obama’s experiment with appeasement and autocracy.: POLLAK: IN LEAVING IRAN DEAL, TRUMP ENDS OBAMA'S LEGACY OF APPEASEMENT OF THE Carsten Koall/Getty Images 🔷End of an Error🔷 President Donald Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the U.S. is leaving the Iran deal marks the end of what his predecessor, Barack Obama, considered his main foreign policy legacy.
