War in Iraq Has Strengthened the US

The esteem for the US is rising declares a respected analyst in Australia in a report in The Australian:

THE US war in Iraq has strengthened its strategic position, especially in terms of key alliances, and the only way this could be reversed would be if it lost the will to continue the struggle and abandoned Iraq in defeat and disarray.

Surely the author of this sentence is on the ganja, you might say. Something a little weird in the coffee? It goes against every aspect of conventional wisdom.

But the author of this thesis, stated only marginally less boldly, is one of the US’s most brilliant strategic analysts. Mike Green holds the Japan chair at Washington’s Centre for Strategic and International Studies and was for several years the Asia director at the National Security Council. He is also one of America’s foremost experts on Japan and northeast Asia generally.

His thesis, applied strictly to the US position in Asia, is correct.

But, Obama and Hillary promise to withdraw troops immediately if they win the election in November regardless of the consequences.

The Left is still upset that Mahoud and Hugo dislike us.
Don Surber adds:

…When a fellow campaigns as L’Americain and wins the presidency of France, I humbly assert that far from alienating friends, Bush has brought them closer.

Related… Obama and Clinton are two cynical losers.
