While speaking to his supporters in Colorado, the US Presidenthas branded as a ‘relic’ who is still in the previous century – here are a few questions for Mitt Romney – the Republican candidate.
This has been reported in nzherald.co.nz of dated the 3rd of September 2012.
He is not too much off the target because Mitt Romney has not been able to offer the Americans any positive solutions to overcome the problems which the US is facing especially to unemployment.
Criticizing the incumbent President is a part of the game in the 2012 US elections but, while doing so, he who heaps criticism should also offer alternative solutions.
Criticism for the sake of criticism does not carry much weight.
It must be remembered that Barack Obama had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2008 and, he has always tried to meet situations head-on and have always tried to work out solutions to defuse tensions.
Let us first consider the Iraq war – Obama had carried forward the Iraq war as a legacy of the previous government and has taken a decision to withdraw all US troops from Iraq. However, even though normalcy has yet to return to Iraq, Obama is determined that there should not be any more blood of Americans in Iraq.
Would Mitt Romney have tackled this in a similar manner?
Next was Osama bin Laden - Obama had to, also, contend with the dreaded al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden who had masterminded the bombing of the Twin Towers in which thousands of lives were lost. Elimination of such a terrorist was the only solution and Obama did not hesitate to issue necessary orders.
What decision would Mitt Romney have taken?
Thirdly the conflicts in the Middle East – Iran has nuclear arsenal and keeps harping on their deployment which could develop into a major global issue. In the interest of universal Peace, that must be prevented. Obama is leaving no stone unturned in his quest for Peace in the Middle East.
Conflicts in Libya and Syria are fallouts of the major threat of Iran and its nukes.
How would Mitt Romney have tackled this sensitive issue?
Then is the abandonment of missions of NASA – straddled with rising costs and squeeze in funds, Obama took an unpleasant decision to suspend funding of Mars missions of NASA. To many it might appear to some as an opportunity to other countries to push ahead – but, it also provides opportunities to private players to enter the market. This they have done – example SpaceX.
