Obama’s beautiful cynic realism
Obama is presented in this Spiegel article as an heir to Kissinger’s realpolitik. The Ingenious diplomat and probably one of the most important thinker in foreign policy matters has a legacy that irritate many Americans in the same time that accusations that its decisions in Cambodia and Chile should be considered as crimes are at times advanced in consistent ways. Yet the stance of Obama in Syria and in the case of Drone’s activity brings back to memory this frightening past. Given the fact that the false idealism of the Bush era caused a global massacre of unimaginable proportions from Asia to the Middle East, Obama’s tactics seem effective and low cost in American lives. Favoring domestic issues combined by its incisive lethal action abroad Obama distances himself greatly from the ingenious diplomat. He is still loved abroad and at home.
