U.S. foreign policy is a dismal failure

When Hillary Clinton recently visited the University at Buffalo, did she bother to mention that the United States is disliked by more people than ever before?

Our foreign policy has been such a dismal failure that even our so-called allies can now be counted on one hand. Is it any wonder that the United Kingdom, France, Germany, et al. have unleashed blistering attacks over relentless NSA spying? As for the rest of the world, they smile in our face while taking our money, which is then funneled to extremists who kill members of our fighting forces on a daily basis.

When will our leaders in Washington wake up to the fact that you can’t buy real friends, because it just doesn’t work?
