    Mitt Romney on foreign policy.

    We have a failed foreign policy alienating strategic & long time allies. Losing touch with reality on the ground in a world with fast changing alliances, shifting balance of power and winds of change blowing in Middle East & N.Africa.
    Latin America & Africa are no longer under our sphere of influence. Regions with vast natural resources & routes to them are now under enviornment hostile to US interests.
    Obsessed with military interventions & relying on military solutions we have almost forgotten the weapons of diplomacy, statesmanship & rational thought process. Gradually isolating ourselves. Our staunchest allies in Europe with their own economic & social woes would no longer be able to sustain their commitment to our causes against public opinion.
    I have srious doubts that those nursing twisted ideologies, deeply ingrained religious & other biases and devoid of vision from among the GOP hopefuls would have any thing to offer on foreign policy worth considering.
