Refreshing Foreign Policy Statement December 6, 2013Posted by geoff in News.
My favorite foreign policy moment by this administration:
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Friday that Washington does not accept China’s new air defense zone over disputed islands in the East China Sea.
“I was absolutely clear on behalf of my president: We do not recognize the zone. It will have no effect on American operations. None. Zero,” Biden said in a speech in Seoul, referring to discussions he held in Beijing earlier in the week.
That was perfect, and a complete surprise to me. But, the way the administration fumbled Syria and Iran and Russia and Libya and …, I kind of doubt they’ll stick to that firm, clear, US-centric stance.
