Obama's US foreign policy could take a leaf out of Winnie the Pooh

Ohama and Pooh

If Barack Obama were to become US President then, Richard Danzig, one of his political advisors is tipped to become US National Security Advisor. Richard Danzig, who is a former Navy Secretary in the Bill Clinton administration, recently said Winnie the Pooh could have a telling effect on the future US policy in the war on terrorism.

And his words are quoted here saying, “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security”. Mr. Danzig pressed on the issue saying important lessons can be learnt from violent football fans and also from Luke Skywalker.

To vindicate his stand he read a paragraph from chapter one of the children’s classic “Winnie the Pooh”.
