How about you, Dave64, being named Secretary of State. I like to base foreign policy on the great words of Clint Eastwood in 'Dirty Harry', "When are you going to quit messing around with this guy'. This coddling done by our government of all our true, identified enemies has led this once great country down the nauseating role as no longer the great world power we once were. We have, sadly, now become useful to the much wealthier countries such as China as only a debtor with a large consumer base willing to sell their very soul just for a chance to buy the latest gadget. The future no longer exists to this generation. They want it and will do anything to get it now.
