“****American exceptionalism, not so accepted? Our country’s ongoing spat with Russia is the latest in what’s been a frustrating year on the foreign policy front for the White House and President Obama specifically. From Egypt to Syria to Russia and China, there have been more setbacks than successes. While we like to think other countries once quaked in the face of U.S. power, but that hasn’t been the case since, well, the Iraq war. More recently, the Edward Snowden saga highlighted just how hard it is for the U.S. to get China and Russia, specifically, to bend. The limits of U.S. power in this flatter world are becoming more noticeable by the day.” NBC News.
