End of WeDG

Hi all,
Due to well over two years of a clear lack of interest in this board, I will be closing it when the hosting is up next month (24 Aug). I see no reason to continue this with the lack of readership and participation.

It's been a wonderful 27+ years, with tons of ups and downs, but with all the excellent resources available to us online via Telegram, YouTube and other platforms - we've outgrown our purpose. I do not believe any huge modification/improvements to the site would help, plus that has always been way beyond my knowledge/skill set.

Y'all know how to reach me.

    Iran keeps trying to redirect the revolts, but at least so far, with little success.

      Quote:
      "[Gates] will make the general argument that ... the Israelis have a very deep strategic interest in getting out in front of the wave of populism that's sweeping the region," the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

      "Showing real progress on the peace track with the Palestinians would put them in a much better position for where the region's likely to be in six months or a year from now."


      Quote:
      Instead Gates would make a similar argument to Israel that he's been making to Arab allies as he travels throughout the region "that they need to get out in front of this push for political change".

        just some humble opinion
        The reason the world and Obama have taken the positions they have about the revolts? Lessons learned in Iraq and Afghanistan.
        People need to feel it is their victory. The drive for their dream. Especially with democracy.
        What went wrong in Iraq and Afghanistan? Although people may have been happy to see US troops at first, it quickly became the completion of an American/western dream. Something to be suspicious about and even fight. The ammo of Iran and Gadhafi.

        Instead, feed it. Even in the background promote it. If you take over it, you risk the impression you are stealing it or worse enforcing and imposing it.
        Freedom and democracy is something people have to feel they accomplished.
        And yeah, it is their idea.

          Wow I found this just at the right time. lol
          At its broadest, Obama's diplomacy has tried to redefine the exercise of American power. It is an effort at a distinctive form of multilateralism, deeper than anything any President has tried before. At the same time, Obama is proposing a limited military intervention for a problem in which U.S. interests are limited. That's something Presidents in the past have promised but mostly been unable to deliver as events on the ground forced them to escalate for fear of being humiliated

            Not surrender it but redefine it. The humbling and bowing he started his administration with.
            The diplomacy of the past few weeks has broken a tradition born in the Cold War.
            It is a NWO now and the image but not the power has to change.
