Throughout time leaders of countries all over the world continue to make the same mistake in their foreign policy. They continue to think that other countries are looking out for what is best for their entire country.
What they do not realize is that most leaders are just looking out for what is best for them. They do what they think is best. They want to make sure that they stay in power for as long as possible. They are not thinking about what is right for their entire country.
When other leaders do not recognize this fact, they cannot adjust their foreign policy to account for that fact. It is a mistake that countries make throughout the world.
Americans will learn all too soon that Barack Obama is only looking out for himself as well and doing whatever he can to stay in office for as long as possible.
