Cose che non resteranno

That’s right/171

«FOR a president who ran as the opposite of his predecessor, Barack Obama has conducted a remarkably similar foreign policy. When he left office, George Bush was winding down America’s war in Iraq; Mr Obama is following much the same timetable. Mr Bush turned the Iraq war round via a surge of extra troops; Mr Obama is trying the same trick in Afghanistan. Mr Bush sent the CIA’s drones to zap assorted jihadists in Pakistan; Mr Obama has multiplied those attacks. Mr Bush wanted to close Guantánamo but could not answer the practical question of what to do with its remaining inmates; ditto Mr Obama. Mr Bush ratcheted up sanctions on Iran, to stop its nuclear programme, while keeping “all options” on the table; no change there».
