ECONOMY IS JOB 1...BUT OBAMA'S FOREIGN POLICY HAS DAMAGED U.S.
Although the priority this political year is the Economy: Job creation, Budget Deficits and Debt, Obama has weakened American Foreign Policy via his "Apologia" campaign. The Republican candidates need to put forth a viable set of Foreign Policy goals and Military Procurement Plans.
1. War on Terror Plan: which will consist of less troops involved and more reliance on Drones, Intelligence and Selective Special Operations Forces.
2. Asia Alliances: A complete overhaul and refinement of our Pakistani Alliance and a fresh look at India as a new Strategic Partner and Trade Partner.
3. Long Term Threat Analysis of China and Russia...including Scenario Analysis in Taiwan Strait, Spratly Islands and other possible pressure points and how American Military Capabilities need to improve for near and far future scenarios.
4. Trade Imbalances: A Serious fresh look at Unfair Trading Practices by China and other nations. We need to ensure Free Trade and also Guarantee Fair Trade Policies from our Partners overseas.
These are not exhaustive but point out some Critical Strategic Priorities for US National Security, which the GOP Presidential candidates will have to soon address in the Republican Primary.
