Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics.Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play.Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts.The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations.Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world’s attention and given its people hope for a better future. His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.
The U.S. dropped 26,171 bombs last year, 3,027 more than 2015.According to an analysis of Defense Department data from the Council on Foreign Relations, a non-partisan think tank, the majority of the bombs were dropped in Iraq and Syria.The U.S. leads an international coalition fighting the Islamic State group in both countries and has carried out air operations in attempt to reduce the area controlled by the terrorist organization.Nearly the same amount of bombs were dropped in Syria (12,192) and Iraq (12,095) last year.
