In “Good, Bad and Ugly of the GOP’s Foreign Policy; Chris Christie among Worst as No Republican Stands for Peace,” Cato Institute’s Doug Bandow tells readers:
- Most GOP candidates promise “ brave new interventions and wars.”
- If Republicans really believe in limited government and individual liberty, they should promote piece. It is time for a real Republican debate over foreign and military policy.
- Looking at Chris Christie: “Building stronger alliances” is a “pillar” of Christie’s foreign policy. U.S foreign policy is based on “partnership with people who share our views,” Christie explained. Like the totalitarian Saudis, brutal Egyptian military, and dictatorial Central Asia states?
- South Korea has 40 times the GDP of the North; Japan possesses the world’s third largest economy. Europe has a larger GDP and population than America and multiple those of Russia.
- Many so-called allies are security black holes, making America less secure…. Why would Washington wish to confront nuclear-armed Moscow over interests the latter considers vital by defending nations such as Georgia and Ukraine, which always has been irrelevant to American security?
