So much for change. Hillary Clinton's "3 a.m. response" to the illegal invasion of Ecuador (an organization of the American states ally whom we are pledged to defend) was to first condemn the president of Venezuela (whom the U.S. has many times tried to depose).
Then to pledge our support for Columbia (the invading country) whom we have given years of enormous military assistance.
Barak Obama was not a whole lot better, calling for an end to hostile talk and calling for assistance from neighboring states. He did not ask for the U.S. to take a leading role in this hemispheric crisis, nor suggest our support of our treaty ally that had been invaded. Who is it that can expect the U.S. to uphold its end of an international treaty?
When will we ever assume an international position of being one (and not the only one) of a community of nations learning how to dialog and live at peace with each other? I was in hopes that this was the change that was being talked about in our election rhetoric.
