Mort Zuckerman: World Sees Obama as Incompetent and Amateur.
America right now appears to be unreliable to traditional friends, compliant to rivals, and weak to enemies. One renowned Asian leader stated recently at a private dinner in the United States, "We in Asia are convinced that Obama is not strong enough to confront his opponents, but we fear that he is not strong enough to support his friends."
That's well put. Obama is simply ignorant about how to maintain peace. His philosophy of being soft to American enemies will backfire.
