In this short, but powerful clip, Pres. Obama gives republican critics a free lesson about the power of diplomacy when dealing with hostile nations such as Iran.
It is an important lesson that Republican war hawks such as President Bush and VP Dick Cheney clearly didn’t keep in mind when they lied America into a preemptive war that cost trillions of dollars, cost millions of lives to be lost, and destabilized the entire Middle East — while decreasing America standing throughout the world.
Pres. Obama’s cool, thoughtful approach to foreign-policy is a breath of fresh air compared to President Bush’s reckless strategy of shooting first and asking questions later.
