The situation in the Middle East is a perfect example of why our government should have a standardized foreign policy. It doesn’t make sense to me to have one policy for one country, and another policy for another country.

Our government should have the same policies for every country. That way, our friends and enemies, and our citizens, will know exactly what the federal government stands for. We need a government that always supports democracy, equality, human rights and civil liberties. I don’t want a government that supports nondefensive wars, inequality, dictators and tyrannical kings.
