THE UNITED STATES MUST BE THE BIG DOG IN WORLD POLITICSAt the present time the United States is seen by foreign powers as weak and cowardly. And as a result, ISIS is pushing the envelope, Iran is pushing the envelope, North Korea is pushing the envelope, Russia is pushing the envelope, and even China is pushing the envelope.
If it was the right thing to support the Rebels in Syria, the United States should have taken swift Military action to gain Victory for the Rebels. But that didn't happen, and as a result, ISIS has moved in and taken advantage of weakness on all sides.
Now Iran and North Korea will push their agenda and use of nuclear weapons, because they know the United States is weak and unwilling to take any Military action.
The United States is tied down with foreign economic interests, and the borrowing of money from China. The United States is tied down on Oil and other Energy interests. We are tied down from taking any Military action because it be a conflict of foreign economic concerns.
The Big Dog will bite first and win. Because the United States is not the Big Dog, other foreign powers are biting and showing their teeth.
It is time for the United States to be the Big Dog and start slamming down the hammer. Only then will the little dogs have proper respect.
