Lrx, It must be hard for those who support the NeoLiberal/NeoConservative policies of the Warmongering parties of the Duopoly to understand the concept of Peace.
I swear, it makes me sick to my stomach every time I hear someone making excuses for our government and offering support as they prepare to send more of our Military to 'Defeat ISIS' or 'Fight Jihadists' God knows where in the world.
The United States of America is not the Fucking Policemen of the World. The Duopoly has been organizing this for many decades through building an Empire, comprised of 700+ Military Bases which by itself is destroying our way of life here, by burning more fossil fuels and spreading Death and Human Suffering around the globe. The United States of America through the maintenance of Empire, the massive sales of weaponry used to murder innocent men, women, and children, and the Endless Wars have created so much hate, that it qualifies easily as the biggest Terrorist Organization in the world.
What would I base Foreign Policy on?
How about "Peaceful Coexistence."
First of all, after dismantling the Empire of the 700+ Military Bases worldwide and bringing our people home, I would establish a dialog with all nations. No threats, just honest communication.
We would never return to the "Policemen of the World". Never. A coalition of hundreds of nations would be formed and asked to join a Quick Response Team to intervene in places around the globe where help is needed to quell violence or help with famine or disease.
A move for all nations to disarm and destroy Nuclear weapons, and a Worldwide Peace Treaty would be necessary.
I don't have all the answers Lrx, but I know that if humankind is to survive Climate Change, Overpopulation, Oligarchs attempts to rule the world and make the poor pay for their lavish lifestyles, we must create change that benefits the masses.
We must, Give Peace a Chance.
