It profoundly undermines American strategic credibility, which is the bedrock of whatever global order this troubled planet enjoys. This is something I think people don't understand about our military. We have been the major keeper of peace and order world wide. I think people tend to just focus on the middle east and don't realize what it is our military really does. But now this administration is making us look like a bunch of sissies. And I don't think other nations think of us as a super power anymore.
