Will America survive the damage from our own foreign policy?
The world is drowning in a financial crisis. Governments have more debt than they can pay. To rescue themselves from decades of flawed policy and personal self-interest, their only solution is higher taxes. Then they spend even more. Beyond this, we have a global threat from an extreme religion that seeks either our absolute conversion, or justify themselves in our total destruction and death. Growing economies in China, India, and other nations have expanded their markets and own our debt. Global markets are in a crisis of uncertainty, leaving average American citizens with little and expecting less. Our tactics in dealing with the world’s circumstances are torn between financial sanctions and limited military intervention. This section shows the reality of what is truly going on in Foreign Policy, and steps we must take to change the world’s direction.
