(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) MITT ROMNEY is trekking a rough terrain. His endeavour to rephrase and carry out necessary corrections in the foreign policy is merely playing to the gallery. Having jumped into the presidential duel on the promise of reviving the economy, the former governor of Massachusetts now believes it's time to spell out an agenda for conquering the world.

True to his Republican character, Romney wants an assertive policy of intervention and meddling in foreign affairs. His pledge to arm the Syrian rebels and to put Iran on the mat is rhetoric at this point of time. It is meant to touch the sympathies of big businesses and fundraisers who eventually look up for returns once the incumbent is in office in the form of an arms race or offshore investments.

Romney, earlier, had talked about breaking up on the rapprochement that President Barack Obama had attained with Russia, and also to kickstart a trade warfare with China. The Republicans had always maintained that the Democrats are too compliant when it comes to opening up America for economic ventures from overseas, and it had cost the nation heavily in terms of jobs. But, of late, Romney hasn't touched on such issues and is silent on how he plans to tackle the volume of investments and foreign exchange reserves that Beijing maintains with Washington. The conservative business tycoon that he is, Romney needs to speak his mind on economic interdependence - and the strategy with which he will tackle the rising unemployment and plight of the economy.

Romney has already created war hysteria when he toured Palestine and Israel. His comments that there is no room for a Palestinian state and that the Palestinians are responsible for their plight are quite unbecoming of American leadership. His failure to come up with a roadmap as far as peace in the Middle East is concerned is negative attitude on his part. This is why when he criticised Obama's handling of the Libyan affair in the wake of the Benghazi riots and the killing of diplomatic staff, the media was quick to ask what would be his plan of action for the turbulent region. Mitt's desire to see America aggressively supporting democrats in the face of tyranny would be a difficult proposition to redefine in times to come. The GOP has to do some homework to apprise Romney of the fair side of governance and realpolitik.
