He can be taught!  SecState Kerry stumbles onto a bit of wisdom...

Something about a blind squirrel....

It may be the most earth-shattering political utterance of the last six years.  Addressing students at Yale last week, Secretary of State John Kerry actually made a coherent foreign policy observation (from the Financial Times):

"Most of the rest of the world doesn’t lie awake at night worrying about America’s presence – they worry about what would happen in our absence."

"Most of the rest of the world doesn’t lie awake at night worrying about America’s presence – they worry about what would happen in our absence."

Shocking, that.  Has he informed the President of this truth?

Why am I rambling about this in a business outlet?  Because the growing isolationism in this country will have profound effects for not only human dignity and world order, but for business as well.  See: China's growing belligerence to its neighbors and expansionism in the South China Sea; Russia's growing appetite for former Soviet-occupied lands; Iran's growing hegonomy in the Persian Gulf and beyond.  These developments augur a world of instability, lawlessness and aggression.  Businesspeople in the US need to understand that in this global economy, such effects are devastating, and threaten freedom and prosperity not only abroad, but at home. 

Secretary Kerry, please take your own words to heart.
