Have you ever stopped to think what makes up US foreign policy? What have Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and their antecedents wrought?
The main US foreign policy tools for winning hearts and minds include bribery, intimidation and hellfire missiles. Not a lot has changed.
In the Middle East we create an atmosphere that breeds dozens of terrorist groups we don’t understand then pay, train and equip them all to fight each other. We do Islamists a favor by upending Middle Eastern countries so they can walk in and take over, we try two or three times if we have to. We team up and fund Sunnis who attack(ed) us to fight Shias that haven’t attacked us. We never mention 9/11 and Saudi Arabia in the same day.
The EU and NATO policy is fund their defense and require them to spend their ill gotten US taxpayer dollars on US armament ‘upgrades’. You have to keep up to snuff if you are going to run with the big boys. As a bonus the MI Complex keeps campaign coffers well fed.
Central and South America, Southern Europe/Asia, Africa and far East Asian countries and other assorted minions are encouraged to take our money, do what we say, not go pinko and not speak kindly to Russia and China.
Pacific (Lake USA) countries are told to accept US money, troops, bases and missiles as they will be the first to be crushed by China and North Korea whom the US is economically and militarily aggravating. As is the case with Eastern Europe and Russia.
Uppity commies that complain when we sail warships up to their shores need to be reminded who is master.
Pay Israel whatever they demand, do whatever they demand, do not ask them to help fight ISIS and ignore their partnership with Saudi Arabia in funding Sunni terrorists. Do NOT ‘Remember the Liberty’.
Any son of bitch that robs, rapes, murders, tortures, gets rich off US tax payers and selling drugs gets a free pass if he is OUR son of a bitch.
Get military bases established anywhere and everywhere.
If any miscreants (excluding Israeli or SA miscreants) fail to obey they can expect a ‘democracy’ advocating NGO, Gladio and/or CIA to straighten them out using the above mentioned tools. When Victoria Nuland invites herself for a visit you know you are in for a whoopin’.
I’d say that about covers it.
Be seeing you
