America’s Empty Embassies

“If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25″If a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.” Mark 3:25

Another reason why the global community is starting to look to other regional and global players for leadership.  Some of these chairs have sat empty for two years.

Article states:  “Such success depends on making common cause with our allies, an effort led by America’s ambassadors. And yet, thanks to Senate politics, dozens of ambassadorial nominations have been delayed unnecessarily. At one point in 2014, nearly a quarter of the world’s countries lacked an American ambassador, and even today, despite some efforts to approve candidates, a dozen nominations have not received congressional action — including nominees to represent the United States in strategically vital countries like Mexico, Norway and Sweden.”
