  •  Strategy depends on objectives, (3+ / 0-)

    objectives depend on what one values. I agree that "our" strategy is currently serving the values of the American economic elite who value the perceived and actual privileges of their rank. Claiming number 1 rank means a lot more to these folks than anything else.

    A democratic foreign policy that reflected what is valued by the majority of people in the U.S. would be one where our military and industrial potential was focused on creating and protecting a domestic circumstance that reflected values something like the preamble of our constitution describes.
