Press Release

The Obama-Biden Worldview

Obama-Biden and US foreign policy with Eric Margolis, Phyllis Bennis and Paul Heinbecker
WASHINGTON -

Paul Heinbecker, former Canadian U.N Ambassador, is very optimistic about Obama because 'the world is really changing. It wasn't very long ago where we thought of Asians as basically the consumers of history and the West, ever since the industrial revolution', the producers of history. We now see that in a way China is back as indicated through the Olympics and Asians are going to play a greater role than they did before.

Biden brings a lot of experience which Obama does not have enough of according to many concerned Americans. The world is looking for a clean break from current U.S policies. McCain does not represent this break but Obama does and that is what the world wants today.

Phyllis Bennis, Senior Analyst at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington DC, says 'we are not yet seeing a complete break with the legacy of US interventionism', however, she does see the end of the reckless drive of militarism.

Eric Margolis, a journalist, states that once Obama appeared on the world stage people began to think that things would be different. Yes, we may go into a phase where military troops will remain in Iraq but they will be called something else - it would be more for political reasons.
