Sarah Palin and Bush doctrine raises brow

Sarah Palin Bush doctrineSarah Palin insisted passionately that she was ready for the vice presidency but that, she does not subscribe to the George Bush doctrine at all. She passed her first TV interview successfully making her look like the prime woman to head American politics and steer the country to the right side. About the George Bush doctrine, Sarah said that she was not for the war principles of George Bush.

The Bush defense doctrines have been a very profound discussion among Americans. It’s deemed a very abrasive measure for the American defense reactions. George Bush doctrine is a principle in which he incepted the stand alone measure of using U.S. military force when a strike is “imminent” against the American people. Sarah took issue with this faculty in an ABC News interview. Sarah Palin said she was not for the “anticipatory self-defense,” raising brows whether she does or she does not subscribe to the Bush Doctrine.

Palin told the interviewer that the American nation has a right to defend itself based on the principle of consistent and very true intelligence. “Charlie, if there is legitimate and enough intelligence that tells us that a strike is imminent against American people, we have every right to defend our country,” she said during the interview with Charles Gibson of ABC News. “In fact, the president has the obligation, the duty to defend, and that’s what a McCain-Palin administration would do.”

Palin differed with her remarks about the Iraq war where she remarked that the Iraq war is a mission from God. She seemed to clear the mist about her stance and further praised running mate John McCain on NATO membership for Ukraine and Georgia even against Russia’s objections. Sarah Palin has become a key tool in the Republicans purge to power and popularity recently. She has caught the democrats unawares.

Palin’s stance about the George Bush doctrine is one of the many errors in the independent minds of the Republicans. She seems to be just like McCain who differs openly with Bush. The Bush doctrine is embedded on September 2002 National Security strategy of the United States which clearly states that the U.S. “must adapt the concept of imminent threat to the capabilities and objectives of today’s adversaries.” The security strategy also in the inscriptions of its document says that: “The greater the threat, the greater is the risk of inaction and the more compelling the case for taking anticipatory action to defend ourselves, even if uncertainty remains as to the time and place of the enemy’s attack.” Palin is yet to prove if she does subscribe to this Bush doctrine.
