So much of U.S. foreign policy is based on glaring assumptions, which

never provide a particularly solid base upon which to define policy and

take action. Dick Cheney and George W. Bush, for example, assumed that the
rest of the world would applaud them as global heroes for eliminating

Saddam Hussein and "liberating" Iraq. Bad assumption. Currently, these

two losers are assuming that the American People and the rest of the world
will never hold them accountable for their criminal actions in Iraq and
their nourishment of a global economic meltdown. Bad assumption.


Likewise, Barack Obama assumed that he could implement meaningful change
in the U.S. socioeconomic system by accommodating those who brought about
the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and nourished the global economic
meltdown, as opposed to making them accountable. Bad assumption.


Having largely failed to make meaningful change in Wall Street, not to

mention health care reform, Obama now assumes that newly emergent economic
powers, e.g., Russia and China, and other members of the G20 will happily
accept the current U.S. global hegemony. Bad assumption, especially after
having demonstrated to the world that we are one cheerfully greedy and
corrupt nation, unwilling and unable to bring fiscal criminals to justice,
unwilling and unable to change.

For that matter, the U.S. in general, operates on the assumption that the
American people and those in other nations are a tad too stupid to ever
see through the corrupt greed-driven game of capitalism in the U.S. Bad
assumption, reflecting a bad attitude that is a put-down to all thoughtful
people.


The British, for example, can claim Watson and Crick, the discoverers of

the structure of DNA. The French can claim Jacob and Monod the

discoverers of genetic regulation. The Germans can claim Albert Einstein

and Relativity Theory. The people in the rest of the world do see what is

going on in the U.S. and in the larger world, you may count on it. The

U.S. can only claim that corporate America took control of our academic

science over three decades ago.
