Any portion of it?

Can anyone enunciate it or understand what this administration is doing with regard to it?

In short, trying to affect change by using cultural tact and adeptness, NOT bullying, emphasizing to the people of those particular countries that only they can own their futures and no one else, and working on mutually shared interests and NOT blowing the hell or threatening to, out of anyone who disagrees with us. All of which is usually defined under DIPLOMACY.

That's not a policy. Diplomacy is a method.

Who do we support? What do we oppose?

What "mutually shared interests"? What "particular countries"?

US policy is to change every 2-4 years.
Make sure to pull out and leave systems hanging.
Undermine anyone that helps.
Send amateur politicians to make mistakes.

Another dejavu Iranian revolt. No way to stop it now. Too l damn late no matter what Mrs Clinton tries to sound positive on TV. We always get our panties wet like the last days of Saigon when they had to pushed hueys off the deck to make space for more helos to land.

Can you have a foreign policy without a doctrine? I don't think this country's had a doctrine since Reagan. HH

We got too many experts from Brookings Institute, Council on Foreign Relationsm , etc , who are busy debating right now as to what s the best advise they can give the cabinet. Other than that they cannot change the actions in the streets . Too dang late....

Voting "Present" is our current foreign policy.

[QUOTE=certifiedfunds;16774989]That's not a policy. Diplomacy is a method.

Depending on how you interpret the word, it can be either.

Who do we support? What do we oppose?

As it pertains to my statement, for starters it would be the people of Tunisia, Thailand, Egypt, Iran, Georgia, Ukraine and Sudan to name a few - all of which (except for the case of Iran and Thailand who came DAMN CLOSE, and Egypt TBD) held successful uprisings or outward transparent votes against their governments

We obviously oppose terrorists, North Korea, the Iranian government, China's military, Venezuela, North Sudan and other oppressing governments. However I like that we haven't completely cut of dialogue with them.


What "mutually shared interests"? What "particular countries"?[/QUOTE]

I'm only going to provide a short list. I think first and foremost is trying to keep the global economy afloat by any means necessary, nuclear non-proliferation, international development and humanitarian aid, access to technology, the advancement of scientific research and development, sustainment of traditional borders to avoid conflict, sustainable energy solutions to name a few off the top of my head.

I don't feel the need to go into this too much more since I already know that it won't do much good to most people reading this thread since it's just yet another bash-Obama and as GlockerMike so eloquently pointed out, there's a black man in the Oval Office and not much matters to many beyond that.

I'll be the first to admit that he should never have received the Nobel Peace Prize when he did. If people are looking for a place to ***** and moan I would certainly look more at his domestic record. That's where I keep scratching my head to wonder what the policy is.

Yep. That sums it up.

Check what citizens of foreign countries think about our policies, and you'll hear similar to this, only not in such a clear way.

Some people will see it that way, as they always do.

However, if you read what G33 wrote, you'll find that there's often a lot of truth in simple humor.

And it has absolutely nothing to do with bashing any single person or party.
