When Barack Obama took office, he pledged a new overture to the worlds emerging powers. Today each of the Brics Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa is at loggerheads with America, or worse. Last month four of the five abstained in a UN vote condemning the fifths annexation of Crimea. Next month India is likely to elect as its new leader Narendra Modi, who says he has no interest in visiting America other than to attend the UN in New York. As the worlds largest democracy, and Americas most natural ally among the emerging powers, Indias is a troubling weathervane. How on earth did Mr Obama lose the Brics?

In the case of India it is simple. Obama supports bia Moslem friends in Pakistan. Also the last straw was the handcuffing and strip search of an indian diplomat, treating India en par with Lesotho
Mainly its because America still sees itself as a global hegemon. But its power and influence are shrinking and no one much cares what a lame duck American President needs or wants.
India has surplus foreign currency stash and has no interest in bailing out Obama’s $17.3 Trillion in the hole Treasury, soon to be $24 Trillion in the hock due to Zero’s spending money we do not have.
Maybe, after over five years, they also see him for what he is -- but their agenda requires they continue to support he who is unsupportable.
Yup. And why would you go out of your way to do favors for someone who treats you like dirt? What goes around comes around and Obama has few real international friends.
The bottom line is no one likes him, respects him or fears him.
~Americas most natural ally among the emerging powers, India~
What?? It won’t even make a good joke in India after Bengal Bay massacre. Every village idiot in India knows that US is a friend of Pakistan and Red China.
Easy. Because the Brics are all racists. What other explanation could there be?
Kumbaya diplomacy doesn’t work. Thus endeth the lesson.
Brics.... What do all these countries have in common? Nothing, except the first letters of their names make a really cool acronym.
They are one of several groups attempting to dethrone the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency.
In addition to BRICS, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) are working towards the same goal.
Reagan's King Dollar is going to implode within 3 years and for the first time in our lives, the U.S. dollar will no longer be the global reserve currency. The best case scenario is the dollar is part of a basket of reserve currencies.
In Japan he groveled like a begger. He did the same in Saudi.He bent over for Putin. He lost far more than the BRICS. Like the mouse that roared attempting to retreive a more than gonzo prestige, he ruined Libya and Egypt with a self affected Messiah complex, resulting in increased jihad in the heart of Africa. The man is a SICKO!
I can’t wait to show Obama and his apologist a$$hat liberal fascists out the door!
“Brics.... What do all these countries have in common?”
Beats me; as soon as South Africa is listed as an emerging world power I stop reading.
