As I read this article, I felt sorry for the American military might in having Obama as a Chief of Staff. America is the strongest military power on the planet but that’s worth little with a weak leader like Obama.

I fear these are dangerous times because Obama’s worried about his legacy.

This is a thoughtful article from the Guardian but it reaks of bias and prejudice.

Another alternative explanation is America’s deep embarassment at Obama‘s foreign policy failures. This at least is evidence based. Russia‘s media is rightly mocking America’s achievements in the Middle East.
