Obama's Asia Pivot


Washington targets China and Russia.

by Stephen Lendman

In late 2011, Obama prioritized reasserting America's Pacific presence. His Asia pivot was announced. 

It involves advancing America's military footprint. Doing so aggressively is planned. China's growing economic might and military strength are targeted. So is checking Russia at the same time.

Containment is policy. Cold war politics is back. Unchallenged global dominance is prioritized. Anything goes intends to maintain it. 

War in a part of the world hostile to invaders is possible. Vietnam echoes remain audible. So are Afghanistan ones today. China's a far more formidable adversary. So is Russia. 

It's hard imagining any country challenging them militarily. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. America hasn't won a war since WW II. Lessons weren't learned.
