Hillary och Obama båda utrikespolitiska hökar.

Det sägs ofta när det gäller utrikespolitik är Obama en duva och Hillary en hök. Jag hade hävdat att båda är hökar som kommer att använda amerikansk militärmakt ensidigt. Den mer intressanta frågan blir förstås vems omdöme är bäst. Speciellt efter katastroferna Bush administrationen nu lämnar efter sig. Det kan också vara värt att påpeka att varken Obama eller Hillary kommer att lämna Irak eller mellanöstern direkt.

För de som känner till Washington kanske listan nedan på utrikespolitiska rådgivare säger en del.

Tough talk on Pakistan from Obama | U.S. | Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama said on Wednesday the United States must be willing to strike al Qaeda targets inside Pakistan, adopting a tough tone after a chief rival accused him of naivete in foreign policy.

Obama’s stance comes amid debate in Washington over what to do about a resurgent al Qaeda and Taliban in areas of northwest Pakistan that President Pervez Musharraf has been unable to control, and concerns that new recruits are being trained there for a September 11-style attack against the United States.

Obama said if elected in November 2008 he would be willing to attack inside Pakistan with or without approval from the Pakistani government, a move that would likely cause anxiety in the already troubled region.

”If we have actionable intelligence about high-value terrorist targets and President Musharraf won’t act, we will,” Obama said.

    Fel. Aipac styr inte den amerikanska utrikespolitken. Påverkar starkt men knappast den enda faktorn. Energipolitiken är en annan faktor.

    Det finns också fler organisationer. Som AEI och PNAC. IDF är också en maktfaktor som når långt in i pentagon.

    Som jag sagt, så är Barak och Clintons och Bush lakejer till israeliska organisationen AIPAC. AIPAC bestämde att USA skulle anfalla Irak. Se kommentarerna och länkarna för detaljerna:
