Honest words

In a recent interview US president Obama conceded that the USA behaves on our planet like a bully in would in a school yard. His words:

Now, I also think that if we were just resorting to that and we didn’t have a realistic view that there are bad people out there who are trying to do us harm — and we’ve got to have the strongest military in the world, and we occasionally have to twist the arms of countries that wouldn’t do what we need them to do if it weren’t for the various economic or diplomatic or, in some cases, military leverage that we had — if we didn’t have that dose of realism, we wouldn’t get anything done, either.

The wording also gave me an eerie reminder of the book “Confessions of an Economic Hitman”.
