FEO-IZE - SIMPLIFYING AMERICA'S MURKY FOREIGN POLICY

"The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is." Winston Churchill
Today marks 73 years since the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
Less than five years after that devastating surprise attack the United States of America rallied, fought, and defeated the Empire of Japan.
Notice was served the world.
And the world took notice.
America vowed to 'Never Forget.'
Now at war we've been since another devastating surprise attack on America - we call that one "9/11" (2001).
It's been more than 13 years since the United States of America rallied, began fighting, and we've yet to defeat those attempting to establish an empire.
Murky foreign policy.
And though we vowed otherwise, we're forgetting.
So, simplify our foreign policy (and capture it in an easy-to-remember acronym)...
F(riends) - (empath)IZE
E(nemies) - (vapor)IZE
O(thers) - (social)IZE; with caution
The United States of America's posture need not be any more complicated - easily understood, and remembered, by Americans, friends, enemies, and others, too.
Think about an aspiring presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, who last week said the United States of America must empathize with her enemies.
Ask yourself one question, "Whose side is that lunatic on?"
Let us 'Never Forget' - ever - those who selflessly give all to country. For them, we (and others about the world) survive.
While you were sleeping...
