American isolationism: Obama's unfolding signature policy

There are 12 comments on the Debka story from Jan 19, 2013, titled American isolationism: Obama's unfolding signature policy. In it, Debka reports that:

Whereas in his first term as president, Barack Obama opted for "leading from behind," in international military operations, he enters his second term - even before being sworn in this week - by expanding this step-back precept into American isolationism proper even when it comes to countering Islamist terrorism.

The US has serious deficits, and Obama is really not interested in getting America involved in more Middle Eastern conflicts.

And that's good, the US Government can no longer afford to get into anybody else's business. We have serious issues at home, not like some former Porn Star lost her job because of her past. This is stupid nik-picking foolishness to the arcane power. Citizens should be first, there is too much imbalance among the US population, but slowly and not fast enough, the citizens are waking up.

And launching a rescue attempt with attack helicopters you can hear from 5 mile away was the dumbest thing you could do. The US has the best hostage rescue teams on the planet and we did nothing. The terrorist let all Algerians go and just kept the foreign workers. So we should have been involved. We could have brought the Seals and Delta Force who specialized in this area. SAS could have been brought in also. They cold have Halo'd in from 30,000 ft and dropped in within a 1/2 mile of facility in the dark. But no! Lets use those loud helicopters to announce our intentions. It was never about the hostages. It was always about saving the facility because the Islamist were going to blow it up.

It is a positive shift, especially when you think of the billions of dollars and the more than 50,000 young American lives that were wasted in that idiotic fiasco of VietNam.

The US should have just dropped in 3 bunker buster bombs and blew the plant to hell. It would have been just as effective as the Algerian Special Forces. It would be easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

They could have just nuked them all like they did in Hiroshima! Cheapest and quickest solution to the problem.

DUHHH!!! Do you think the West is restricted to getting involved in another nation's business, just based on it's geography? Ever heard of places like VietNam, Korea, Cuba, or Eastern Europe??
