Obama Pledges New “International Order” At West Point

WEST POINT, N.Y. — President Obama on Saturday pledged to shape a new “international order” as part of a national security strategy that emphasizes his belief in global institutions and America’s role in promoting democratic values around the world.

Speaking to the graduating class at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point — the ninth wartime commencement in a row, he said — the commander in chief who is leading two foreign wars expressed his faith in cooperation and partnerships to confront the economic, military and environmental challenges of the future.

“The international order we seek is one that can resolve the challenges of our times,’” he said in prepared remarks. “Countering violent extremism and insurgency; stopping the spread of nuclear weapons and securing nuclear materials; combating a changing climate and sustaining global growth; helping countries feed themselves and care for their sick; preventing conflict and healing its wounds.”

The administration is set to officially release the president’s first national security strategy next week, and Obama’s preview on Saturday suggests it will be far different than the first one offered by his predecessor in 2002. In that prior document, President George W. Bush formally called for a policy of preemptive war and a “distinctly American internationalism.”

Broken record. Sounds like the same old order to me. :bike:

"He would, wouldn't he?" Mandy Rice-Davies. When asked in court whether she knew that Lord Astor had denied having sex with her.

No, no.. the sheep will understand the difference between new world order and new international order. International sounds more cooperative, doesn't it? More positive? Anyway, what is interesting was to watch the usual drumbeat of the fax-machine operatives in the propaganda brigades selling this under the leading questions "why do we need borders anyway?"

Nope. Just sounds like more sheep to send to slaughter to me.

It's depressing watching America go down in flames.

JFK was the greatest statesman in my lifetime.

Forgive this Englishman's ignorance, Ed, but doesn't "international" in US-speak mean "communist, "conspiratorial," and/or "quisling"?

And what on earth made him cite Bush I as a precedent? Wasn't Bush's flirtation with "internationalism" a rhetorical symbol of his "off the rails" period when he threatened to take on the Israeli lobby and end sin?

Sins: I have in mind, of course, the Big Ones - the appalling cruelties represented by a) the enforced consumption of broccoli*; and b) open microphones.**

*I do not like broccoli. And I haven't liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me eat it. And I'm President of the United States and I'm not going to eat any more broccoli.

**These, they're very dangerous. They trap you. Especially these furry ones...it's these furry guys that get you in real trouble. They can reach out and listen to something so — keep it respectful here.

Dunno about that, Keith. Sinister bunch, IMHO. Why, one of the over-haired walked up to a very much younger version of me - in Southampton in 1971 - and handed me, for no very obvious reason, a plastic flower. The provocative f*cker. What was that all about, eh, being affable to a complete stranger? It'll never catch on, thank goodness.
