Indian Leadership

Communist China is scaring it's neighbors.  Japan, India, South East Asia, Philippines are all concerned that Communist China might be a threat to their right to passage of the seas, and their claims to islands off the coast.  China continues to build up their navy and sail in waters where they seldom have gone in the past.

Rather than run to their Uncle Sam, these nations are combining with each other for protection.  They are forming trading blocks for their mutual protection too.  They are working together and will increase their military readiness and effectiveness as well as interoperability.

The United States foreign service should be working hard to be the leader of this movement to contain Communist China.  Instead, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is mis-managing Benghazi and spending time in the hospital.  The Obama Administration is allowing opportunities to fall from their hands and giving international leadership to other nations.  The United States used to be the leader of the free world, not apparently the Obama Administration is willing to allow India to take over that role; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
