U.S. Foreign Policy Is Like A Dog Pissing On Trees Leaving Its Mark On Every Muslim Country

I went for a run this morning and on the way back I noticed a man and his dog walking in front of me. The dog was stopping at every tree, marking its territory and moving along its jolly way. I stopped and petted the dog, a friendly one, as Labrador Retriever's are. You can tell by looking at a dog most of the time whether it is friendly or not. When it comes to American foreign policy though, how do most of the rest of the world view us? Do they view us as a Labrador Retriever, or as a uncontrollable Rottweiler? (no offense to owners of Rottweiler's who have tame Rottweiler's, but those dogs scare me when I walk by them!)

For me, our foreign policy is one of the uncontrollable Rottweiler, strolling from country to country and pissing on it with our misguided intelligence and inept congress and President who don't understand the consequences of their actions, but do the dirty business of some figurehead in the CIA or Military who said to do it. This is what has occurred the last 50 or so years, beginning with Congress not declaring wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan (although with the latter, Congress passed in 2001 the Authorization for Use of Military Force, basically allowing George W. Bush to do what he wants, subsequently giving the green light to attack Iraq without Congressional declaration).

Who Let the Dogs Out?

Who died and gave the American government authority to police the world? Why is it we American taxpayers fund such action? The government works for us I remind you. I didn't vote for any policeman of the world government and I didn't vote for wars in other countries or the bombing via drones of other countries. This is a rogue government activity and is frowned upon by the entire world...but not the U.S. media that keeps our minds distracted with nonsensical Hollywood lives and racial situations at home or some murder investigation.

What's important to you America? Does salvaging our reputation mean anything? Have you ever asked a foreigner while traveling what they think of the U.S.? How do you think you'll be viewed in Pakistan where they have been Drone bombed 330 times resulting in 859 civilian casualties for the past few years (see graphic below)? I know Pakistan isn't high on my list of places to visit. And I don't think I'll be going to see the Egyptian Pyramids anytime soon either.
