Why Did No One Ever Think Of This Before?
I am glad to be living in a nation where we have visionary thinkers, who think up thing that never have been thought up before in the history of our nation:
Military superiority is not enough to maintain U.S. strength and influence in the world, and the United States must build global institutions and expand international partnerships beyond its traditional allies, according to a new national security strategy prepared by the Obama administration.
Why didn’t anyone try this before?
The history of the world started on January 20, 2009.

Unfortunately, the UN is an example of epic fail.
Same ideas being re-spun as "original" – it's the Obama Way!
Perhaps historians, instead of changing BC/AD to BCE/CE, should propose BO (Before Obama)/AO (After Obama); keepin' up with the messiah theme, doncha' know. Heh.
Ah, yes, I remember well the 1st of Pluviôse, Year 1. The Aristocracy was overthrown; Change brought us Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity; and the National Razor was replaced with the National Perpetual-Campaign Bus, under which all dissenters would be thrown.
I remember trying this before under Slick Willy when I went to Haiti the first time in 1994, and as similar examples of United Nations successes we have Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Dharfur.
Next he will be asking them for advice on how to secure the borders. I am sure they will have some great advice on how to prevent human rights abuses with those that serve on the UN Human Rights Council…LOL
Reminds me of the opening scene in "Animal House" featuring the plaque revealing the college's profound philosophical motto:
"Knowledge is good."
"The United States must build global institutions and expand international partnerships beyond its traditional allies."
Unfortunately, this does not seem to include our traditional allies.
Wouldn't the natural pronoun for "United States" be "our" allies, rather than "its" allies?
"Its" is from an intellectual commenting on and standing apart from the country he is leading.
"Our" would be used by a leader associated with and proud of his country.
Hindsight, while being a form of vision, is not always 20/20.
