Ok, it seems to me, that the Biden administration is finally taking up the idea of doing an advanced, complicated yet possibly successful strategy in foreign policy.

This is what we did in the Obama era, and that was, one of the most successful phases of American power.

There have been other successful phases of American power off cause, this is not to diminish the vast and world changing role that America has had through history, just to try and link this period with the last period.

Ok, where do we start. In fact, to Change things a little let me start with an inverted Trump citation made by one of the philosophical founding fathers of the U.S. Alexis de Tocqueville. A French philosopher traveling the U.S. at its inception, more or less.

He said, ‘America is good, and that is what makes it great. The day it is not good anymore, it will cease to be great.’

In other words, what we do, both domestically as well as in foreign policy MUST be based on an ethical understand of the acts that America. America will loose its greatness the day the ethics is abandoned.

That is why, we have to make some kind of solution to the IS problem, that does not involve spreading these marauders all over the place.

I get it, the Kurds have a problem, we need to fix it. But we could send them somewhere else, where they do less of a damage, and ceases to inflict much harm to anyone. How we stop them of being radicalized, beats me, but they shouldn’t annoy anyone, and not the Europeans, they are really dangerous.

Then the Russians. I know, that it was a Trump era policy to have some kind of alliance with Putin. But it started in the Obama era, and I supported it. First of all, because as Russia have become a Democratic and Christian nation, more or less, then we do not have any ideological differences anymore. Secondly because in a fight with China, not having to worry about Russia is pretty important.

For Russia, they are ok with not being a part of the worlds conflicts. They are either asleep, og wide awake. Don’t poke the bear, as someone would say. Because the bear is pretty strong and lethal when it wakes up. It happened to Napoleon, it happened to Hitler, and they both lost. In a way here after the Cold War, with Western Europe more or less collapsing due to the induced corruption, Russia also won that war. We just never really realized what they were doing, and the process to get back on track is pretty difficult, though we are getting somewhere.

Maybe this is boring, and not new, but the fact of the matter is, that we have China as an opponent, and we need to strategize according to that.

It is no secret, that what we are doing is to our own interest. But at the other hand, neither are everybody else’s.

So, that is my advice, play the international game with skill, otherwise, we definitely will loose.

G-d bless the will to be smart in relations to foreign as well as domestic policy.
