  • The first true foreign policy challenge that Obama faces in his whole presidency so far is the unfolding crisis in the Ukraine. We’ll see if the previous “imperial overstretch” in the already failing interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq will not make this president the last to play an important role in international politics. While Reagan could outspend and “outarm” the Soviets, the practically bankrupt US faces a Russia that has more resources than back then while the US has not yet recovered from its spending sprees in outspending the Soviets and bailing out banks too big to fail and half the industrial base to boot. It would be nice if these most recent developments were discussed by the panel.
