From Ukraine to Syria to the Pacific, a hands-off foreign policy invites more trouble.
Since former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke uttered the word "taper" in June 2013, emerging-market stocks and currencies have taken a beating.
It is not clear why talk of thus far modest go here in the Fed's large-scale asset-purchase program should have had such big repercussions outside the United States.
The best economic explanation is that capital has been flowing out of emerging markets in anticipation of future rises in U.
While plausible, that cannot be the whole story.
For it is not only U.
Even more significant is the "geopolitical taper.
To see the geopolitical taper at work, consider President Obama's comment Wednesday on the horrific killings of カジノロワイヤル本の引用符 in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.
The president said: "There will be consequences if people step over the line.
The world remembers the red line that Mr.
Obama once drew over the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
The compromise deal reached on Friday in Ukraine calling for early elections and a coalition government may or may not spell the end of the crisis.
In any case, the negotiations were conducted without concern for Mr.
The origins of America's geopolitical taper as a strategy can be traced to the confused foreign-policy decisions of the president's first term.
The easy part to understand was that Mr.
Obama wanted out of Iraq and to leave behind the minimum of U.
Less easy to understand was his policy in Afghanistan.
After an internal administration struggle, the result in 2009 was a classic bureaucratic compromise: There was a "surge" of additional troops, accompanied by a commitment to begin withdrawing before the last of these troops had even arrived.
Having passively watched when the Iranian people rose up against their theocratic rulers beginning in 2009, the president was caught off balance by the misnamed "Arab Spring.
Obama backed the government led by Mohammed Morsi,after the Muslim Brotherhood won the 2012 elections.
Then the president backed the military coup against Mr.
Obama took a back seat in an international effort to oust Moammar Gadhafi in 2011, but was apparently not in the vehicle at all when the American mission at Benghazi came under fatal attack in 2012.
Syria has been one of the great fiascos of post-World War II American foreign policy.
When President Obama might have intervened effectively, he hesitated.
When he did intervene, it was ineffectual.
The Free Syrian Army of rebels fighting against the regime of Bashar Assad has not been given sufficient assistance to hold together, much less to defeat the forces loyal to Assad.
The president's non-threat to launch airstrikes—ifCongress agreed—handed the article source to Russia.
Last year's Russian-brokered agreement to get Assad to hand over his chemical weapons is being honored only in the breach, as Secretary of State John Kerry admitted last week.
The scale of the strategic U.
In simply ダストディガーゲームオンライン thanks, according to the International Institute of Strategic Studies, more than 75,000 people died as a result of armed conflict in this region or as a result of terrorism originating there, the highest number since the IISS Armed Conflict database began in 1998.
Back then, the Greater Middle East accounted for カジノロワイヤル本の引用符 of conflict-related deaths in the world; last year it was 78%.
The eldest son of Major Frank Goldsmith, and カジノロワイヤル本の引用符 brother of カジノロワイヤル本の引用符 financier Sir James Goldsmith, Edward Goldsmith was the founding editor and publisher of The Ecologist.
Known for his outspoken views opposing industrial society and economic development, he expressed a strong sympathy for the カジノロワイヤル本の引用符 and values of traditional peoples.
A deep ecologist and systems theorist, Goldsmith was an early proponent of the Gaia hypothesis, having previously developed a similar cybernetic concept of a self-regulating biosphere.
Is the United States secretly arming and supporting various factions of the Syrian Rebels with high caliber impact weapons from The United States arsenals?
Is America again playing both sides against the middle for corporate gain as previously demonstrated by the Cuban Project of the fifties and sixties, as well as the Iran Contra fiasco of the eighties and カジノ規制当局年報 South American-Mexican Drug Wars of the nineties?
It has been established via some field reports from the Middle East and some isolated media reports that the Direct Commercial Sales Program DCSP an American international program, which legally allows the United States to sell weapons to a host of foreign countries without monitoring those weapons after leaving our arsenals, stockpiles, and jurisdiction, has shipped High Impact weapons to Syrian カジノロワイヤル本の引用符 during the last two years.
I have to ask.
What happens to those weapons after legally being sold via this program and they leave our control?
Are they being monitored, traced, certified, and inventoried after arriving in other countries?
Will our troops one day again face these American made weapons on some foreign battlefield?
