“Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics…”

Over a month after US President Barack Obama’s unilateral decision to authorize US forces to use missile strikeskinetic military action” against Libya without the approval of Congress, and the UN withdraws from Tripoli as its offices, and other foreign missions, are attacked in the aftermath of a NATO air strike on one of Muammar Gadafy’s homes.

In addition, “world leaders and security experts have urged renewed vigilance against retaliatory attacks” after President Obama authorised a targeted killing, of Osama bin Laden, on Pakistani soil – at a location identified through information obtained from detainees at Guantánamo.  In “true John Wayne style.”

The Norwegian Nobel Committee must be so proud…

But are all those invitations still good?
