Cose che non resteranno

George W. Obama

Il Los Angeles Times di oggi ha uno scoop, anticipato però 11 giorni fa dal Sole 24 Ore (Dottor Obama e Mister Bush), secondo cui Obama ha cambiato strategia di politica estera, abbandonando l’idea con cui ha vinto le elezioni. Ora il presidente, in seguito ai fallimenti di questi due anni dall’Iran alle rivolte di questi giorni, ha chiesto ai suoi consiglieri di elaborare una nuova strategia pro democracy simile a quella del suo predecessore.

«Obama directed them to elevate democracy and the expansion of political and economic rights "as core interests of ours in the region."
The new strategy was also a reaction to disappointing results from the administration’s original policy. Obama came to office determined to avoid the appearance of interfering in other nations’ affairs. The goal was to distinguish his administration from that of predecessor George W. Bush, who had lectured Arab states and others on the need to democratize. But Obama has lived through nearly two years of foreign policy setbacks. When Iran cracked down on street protests that erupted after its 2009 elections, he was criticized for not doing enough to support the demonstrators and losing an opportunity to pressure Iran’s theocracy».
