Time' Battleland: National Security - Hunting Down Bad Guys: China vs. the U.S.

A pair of ostensibly unrelated New York Times‘ stories recently jumped out at me.

Understand, the paper itself made no attempt to link the two.

What struck me was just how calmly the Times reported 3,000 (!) targeted assassinations by the Obama Administration since 2009, after rather breathlessly noting - just days before – China’s “hard-nosed display of the government’s political and economic clout across Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.”

Washington now has less money to throw around Africa than Beijing and if Washington has even less of a reputation for respecting the rule of law - all will be truly lost.

In case you didn't notice, Kenya elected Uhuru Kenyatta (an ICC indictee) as president. He was sworn in today. His election was a big middle finger to Washington coming direct from the Kenyan people.

Obama doesn't realise that actions have consequences, but successive administrations will be left to mend the tattered rags of America's reputation.
