    I never mentioned Bush that's from your own mind. I said 'America', in which we're all responsible to some degree. I doubt the initial idea even came from Bush.

    The US needs some kind of coherent direction, followed by policies and long term goals, instead of overreacting to every News cycle and Networks trotted out experts and opinions. Those dickheads cause us more problems than they solve, because they don't care about anything other than stirring up the pot for ratings. They're literally a bunch of egotistical, money hungry idiots.

    Look at Ferguson. I doubt there would've even been violent protests without that amount coverage. Though it's great that we have a free press to bring attention to abuses and events, they practice very little responsibility or ethics anymore.

    How did I know that your first word in a thread about Kissinger, would be Obama?

    As far as I know, he is the current President, thanks to you.

    Re: Henry Kissinger on the Assembly of a New World Order

    Is anyone else amazed at the sheer mental sharpness of Kissinger at the age of 91?
    If I live that long, I'll be happy if I can just remember my own name.

    It's important. A few years ago I concluded the best thing to do with my health is to not slow down on reading and discussing policy or ideas decades down the road. Delay retirement, if possible. So many of the intellectuals and policy wonks I researched lived well into their late 80s and 90s that I figured there was something about an active professional role and engagement with policy or ideas that contributed to that.

    I think you are headed in the right direction, but aren't completely seeing Kissinger's point. The U.S., like most countries in the "world order" are experiencing a paradox. It is this paradox that is undermining the established world order. The U.S.'s role in all of this is to reevaluate its position in the world, and determine what it can do, when, how, and to what end. This is a transitional presidency and a transitional geopolitical experience.

    My parents well into their 70's and 80's, until they passed, were as sharp or smarter than any other time in their lives. They exercised, stayed active and kept their mental capacity useful and engaged. I couldn't keep up with them at half their age.

    It is a humorously narrow view to think that Obama, or any American president, is capable of altering macro-historical forces by "calling in experienced people."
