The President elect, who wants to intensify the war in Afghanistan, has chosen a Republican as Defence Secretary to stress continuity from the Bush regime, and Hilary Clinton as Secretary of State, who voted for the Iraq war.
There’s not much change there then.
When you add to that the possible return of Bill Clinton, and the decision to carry on spending and borrowing just like Bush, it is difficult to see what favourable change the US has got after voting for change.
Maybe one day they will work out they cannot afford all these wars, as well as seeing that the so called war on terror is not working as planned. The world’s superpower will have to try diplomacy sometime.
