13 American Foreign Policy Policy DecisionsAmerican Foreign Policy
14 Why this lecture on American Foreign Policy? I can only provide my speculation, but it may be different from other speculation you may be been subjected toToo many have little or no knowledge of the facts and those that have some knowledge of the facts can’t detect nonsenseThe law of unintended consequences always works
15 Winton Churchill Saw Hitler For What He Was and Acted - Hitler was a Dangerous Piece of ???-Chicken ??? Leaders in Britain and France Treated Hitler as if he were a human being-Winston Churchill made the Correct diagnoses and took action
16 Truman Drops the A-Bomb on Japan 1945 -Truman had enough guts to drop the A-Bomb to end the war with Japan-Did he make the right decision? What’s the answer to that question?-Truman is not a war criminal even if middle school teachers like to assign that idea as a discussion topic.
17 Truman Protects South Korea 1951? -1952 – US protects S. Korea after an attack by North Korea-Based on the Cold War Mentality-Could it be just a civil war with nothing to do with the Cold War?
18 Gotta Love Mutual Assured Destruction You gotta love the Balance of Terror…
19 Vietnam: Communism is Not Like Fertilizer Kennedy gets suck into Vietnam WarJohnson let it continue because he had more important matters and listen to Secretary of Defense McNamara and Thomas Shelling? Nixon got us out
20 Did Reagan Really Make the Soviet Union Collapse 1991- Soviet Union collapses which Reagan takes credit for although it probably would have happened anywayWas the collapse of the Soviet Union a good thing
21 Iraq War #1 1991-Saddam broke the rules -Saddam Hussein starts the first nation to nation War since WWII-HW Bush stops him but fails to eliminate him-Guy on right is Ali Hassan al-Majid “Chemical Ali” led the genocide against Kurds
22 Osama Bin Ladin too Slick for Slick Willy Clinton was great on Domestic MattersBin Laden was a rich, partying person until her got “religion” but what was the religionReagan paid for Bin Laden’s education
23 Bush Overreaches -Afghanistan- Taliban is not the enemy -Iraq Invasion-Saddam Hussein needed to be replaced by another dictator
24 Obama Creates Instability -Encourages masses to become violent under the direction of extremists by talking about freedom and democracy-Arab Spring-Nice phrase for Arab chaos in Middle East
25 2015---Violence Metastasizes -True Believers believe in anything that gets followers-Groups who are violent have a great business model as long as we let them-We have been through this before in Colombia, Peru and Sri Lanka but not worldwide
