Obama Warns Against 'Fighting the Last War'
Democrat Barack Obama warned Wednesday about the danger of "fighting the last war" as he pledged to focus on emerging nuclear, biological and cyber threats if elected president. "As long as nuclear weapons exist, we'll retain a strong deterrent. But we will make the goal of eliminating all nuclear weapons a central element in our nuclear policy," Obama said. He added, "The danger ... is that we are constantly fighting the last war, responding to the threats that have come to fruition, instead of staying one step ahead of the threats of the 21st century."

His perspective on international matters really makes a lot of sense to me. Being pro-active is so necessary. Thinking globally (not just focusing on Iraq) is so necessary. Finally someone is looking at the big picture! Did anyone see that they are sending reps from the Bush Adminstration to speak with Iran today? The first time since 1979, I believe. Obama is a trailblazer.

I'm looking forward to a shift to a less reactive, and more proactive (and proactively diplomatic) foreign policy.
