The reserved foreign policy stance of Michigan Rep. Justin Amash is anathema to the War Dogs. And in Tuesday’s Michigan primaries, the WDs are out to sink the Amash ship.
Michigan voters look ready to give the WDs a good old-fashion whupping. Americans nation wide have awoken to the failed foreign policies of the neocon/interventionists. All Americans have the original Weinberger/Powell Doctrine and its five essential elements as a foreign policy template. The War Dogs want no part of such a restrained and measured foreign policy approach.
Members of Congress have a golden opportunity, as the fall elections come ever closer, to help formulate a new and lasting American foreign policy foundation of reservation and non-intervention. The failed interventionist/nation-building policies of the neocons have proven over and over to be a failure for America. The road map for America’s foreign policy future is succinctly laid out in the Cato Institute’s Chris Preble’s The Power Problem.
On Tuesday, let us wish Justin Amash a compelling victory, one that will help fire up the interest of all Americans to finally and permanently de-fang the War Dogs and their failed policy of intervention in the business of other nations, especially where America’s national interest is not at stake.
