While the nation's foreign affairs are chiefly administered by the State Department, American presidents, for all intents and purposes, are the primary authors of our national foreign policy.

Apart from their role as the commander in chief, an American president has the executive and moral authority to shape the direction the country takes in managing its international relationship with foreign states and non-state actors involving a myriad of issues, including, security, trade, environment, immigration, culture and ideology.

The United States' has assumed a central role in the world stage since the middle of the last century. However, observers foresee an increasingly larger American presence in the 21st century. As the sole remaining superpower in the world, the United States must balance its own political and economic interest against the other nations of the world. In the mix are its former cold war rival, Russia, the emerging Asian giants, China and India, the old countries of Europe, Iran, Syria, North Korea, and perhaps most crucially, the Middle East.

Regardless of how one looks at it, against all expectations, this is shaping up to be the American century.



2012 Republican Presidential Nominee
Former Governor of Massachusetts

Mitt Romney

Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney

Romney Position on Foreign Affairs

• The foreign policy outlined by Mitt Romney charts down two main issues in the forefront which will strengthen the United States position as an economic and military super power. One pertains to 'defeating the Jihadists' and the other relates to 'competing with Asia'.

• Romney feels that since the Asian economies are rapidly expanding, the United States need to shed its protectionist approach in the matters of its economy. It will need to open up its market even further. This can be done through reducing the tariffs, bringing down the corporate taxes and by employing a competitive advantage in the market.

• To make the United States a more competitive economy, Romney wants looser laws of immigration so that the economy can take advantage of highly skilled workers. The policy is specific to the highly skilled workers and is clear from its insistence to keep the low-skilled workers who migrate illegally from the South.

• Romney believes that a three pronged approach would take care of the Jihadists. The first aspect would be the employment of military options and pressure. The second approach would be diplomacy which would involve the regional and international players. The third approach would exhort the Muslims to reject extremism. In those nations where the Al Qaeda is developing its roots, such as Bali and Pakistan, the United States should send its forces in order to work in synergy with the local population to contain the terrorists.

• Romney believes that Iran offers a serious challenge to America and that the US has to assure that Iran does not develop a nuclear arsenal. Romney believes economic sanctions and similar strategies would work. The military option may also be left open.

Matt Snyder

Presidential Candidate Matt Snyder

Snyder Position on Foreign Affairs

"America has been a wonderful source of aid to other nations. However, our economic situation is such that we simply cannot afford to continue supplying financial aid to non-allies. Libyans saw no benefit from our aid. Pakistan has received around $20 Billion in the last decade and their loyalty still rested with Bin Laden. We just can’t afford to be this stupid anymore."
