Bill Bowlin on Foreign Policy

 


Maintain Great Britain and Israel as our strongest allies

We must have alliances. We need allies. Our two biggest allies continue to aid us in most ways.

While Great Britain is a wonderful ally, we must be diligent that we never become an ally to anyone that has defeated us.

Israel is a good ally and hopefully will become an even better one. With the soon forging of a new government Israel can stabilize the region by giving greater thought to its actions. Israel's responsibility to walk the line and not drop the ball given it will be a calming effect

Don't use religion as a divisive force, as superpower

There seems to me a balance between being the super power we are and still treating nations and people with respect. While there are always matters that can be troublesome there are more things known and unknown that can conquer our concerns and hesitation about one another and unite us.

Too often these days the biggest subject to divide people in our country and all over the world is religion. It does not have to be. While I would never claim to be an expert in any religion it is well known that a vine must have certain items to thrive. Too much or too little of any of these items will cause the vine to not grow properly. We must work to find balance.
