Customer Question

Review the article below. "Bush spells out doctrine" and discuss the doctrine of preemption. Why do you think this is a justifiable national security policy? Justify your answer in 4-6 paragraphs before Thursday morning.

June 4, 2002 from Rocky Mountain News Article:

President Bush, in an important speech at West Point's graduation exercises this past weekend, reaffirmed that the United States would not rule out a pre-emptive strike against its enemies. Critics immediately raised an alarm. They say the threat of massive retaliation is the best defense. What they don't seem to understand is that the Cold War is over.

Massive retaliation made a certain kind of bloody sense in the days when you would obviously know who sent the missiles and bombers your way. In the days of terrorist attacks whose origins could be untraceable -- when a suitcase bomb could blow up half a city with no meaningful evidence left -- it is far less likely to deter. If lunatic, American-hating, terrorist-sponsoring dictators in places such as Iraq are by all indications busily at work assembling weapons of mass destruction, you need to bring the process to a quick halt.

The mere fact that your policy is to strike first if necessary can prompt such regimes to reconsider their ways. That is apparently what's happening in Iraq, which just may decide to let weapons inspectors back in to look around. Of course, even the most thoroughgoing inspection might not turn up what Iraqis have learned to hide, so the decision of whether to go after Iraq may become extremely complicated.

In the end, of course, one of the most crucial matters concerning any policy is whether it is administered responsibly and intelligently. No American administration should run about invading nations on a whim or mere suspicion. But neither should one shrink from taking the steps necessary to protect this nation from a credible threat of devastating terrorism.
