The View from Liberal Europe

…on President Obama’s foreign policy.  This is from Spiegel Online International:

…Obama is a known factor—even if his first term hasn’t exactly dazzled the world with an energetic approach to foreign policy.  Only after long hesitation did Obama engage in the aerial warfare that toppled Moammar Gadhafi in Libya.  In the case of Iran’s secret nuclear program, it was the United Nations that stepped in.  And in the ongoing civil war in Syria, Obama has not yet managed to budge Russia away from its support of Bashar Assad’s regime.

Obama has a great deal to do in terms of foreign policy—and at the same time new conflicts are arising, for example in Mali, where the rebel-held north of the country threatens to develop into a new center of international terrorism.

Even they are not impressed.
