Marc A. Thiessen, a Washington Post journalist,
compared and contrasted Presidents Bush and Obama’s military doctrines in an
editorial, titled, The Obama-Bush Doctrine. The article can be found,
Both Bush and Obama’s foreign policy doctrines spell
out the rules of U.S. military engagement in today’s post-Cold War era.
How has the use of both the Bush and Obama’s military
doctrines affected the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? How has the use of these
military doctrines altered America’s reputation with the countries of the
Middle East, Iran, China, and Europe?
Hello’ Prof and Classmates
The Bush doctrine was justified because shortly after
he took office as commander and chief our country was brutally attacked by
terrorist from the Middle East in countries like Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan but
even after the 9/11 attack on America the Bush doctrine only allowed for
wiretaps and the bring in of known terrorist to be questioned about their
groups activities. President George W Bush got ridiculed for tactics that
were being used at Guantanamo bay for making the terrorist let us know what
attacks they had in play against our national security but those tactics helped
us locate the source in order to take action. The Obama doctrine is not
constitutional with the force of drone attacks…not only civilians in the Middle
East but also an America citizen that was over there visiting. We won’t ever
have a strong relationship or be able to come to terms with countries like
Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan because they are not our friends and they have made
that more than clear but they don’t only dislike us…they also hate our ally
Israel and that’s the reason we have these doctrines put in place against them.
It’s because of their own actions and not ours.
Hello Professor and class,
The bush Doctrine is justified because he was under heavy attack by
terrorist former President Bush took pride in his military and his country he
was sure to put his military and his country first and by all means within his
power to find out who was behind these attacks agains us.
then you have Obamas doctrine which I don't feel is justified as force of
drone attacks, not caring who is there, foreigners, americans, women, children
it doesn't matter, he just wants it done. we have no hope to make ties with
these countries he has made them so upset with us and our service members and
many others are even upset with hm.
