Scott Kleeb on Homeland Security

Democratic Challenger


We have forgotten how to use diplomacy

"We need to scale down the dialog of anger toward the rest of the world. I think that the invasion of Iraq was based on false premises," Larrick declared.

"We have tremendous potential to actually use diplomacy in ways even Ronald Reagan used that we have forgotten now, and the current administration has forgotten," Kleeb said.

"We should never negotiate with rogue nations without preconditions. You squander the prestige and the power of the American presidency when you do that," Johanns said.

Give our troops needed armor, equipment, and health care

The Bush administration initiated the war in Iraq with no plan and no end in sight and has continued to fail giving our troops the armor, equipment and health care they need to be safe and successful. Despite this lack of support and a continued failure to press for a political solution, our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and reservists have fought bravely and made us proud.

Strengthen diplomatic corps, but also add 92,000 soldiers

Whether fighting international terrorism, stopping oppression in areas such as Darfur , limiting nuclear proliferation, stemming the flow of illegal drugs, arms, or human trafficking, addressing global health crises like AIDS, or combating climate change our nation needs more partners than pariahs, more friends than foes. We can draw on strong international support for our priorities only if we draw strong support from our diplomatic corps. As such, we need to strengthen our foreign service, strengthen our commitment to our NATO partners, seek new and mutually beneficial alliances in Asia and Latin America, and develop the capacity for our civilian aid workers to work alongside our military. Together with a more robust diplomatic corps, we must as well expand and better support our now over-strained armed services by adding at least 65,000 soldiers and 27,000 marines. And we must better equip and better train our troops with improved armor, updated equipment, and new skills like language training.
