Assignment 2: Current Events and U.S. Diplomacy Due Week 9 and worth 175 points This paper will be a revised and expanded version of the first research paper. Based on your instructorâ€&#x;s feedback, you will first revise the first paper. Write three-to-four (3-4) new pages that address the following: 1. Define presidential doctrine and summarize the regional or global events during the Cold War leading up to the formation of the presidential doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1. 2. Select one country you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship that existed between the country you selected and the U.S. before the presidential doctrine was announced. 3. Describe the relationship that currently exists between the U.S. and the country you selected in section (2) above. 4. Describe the effect that the presidential doctrine has had on regional or global affairs since it was announced during the Cold War. 5. Assess whether or not the presidential doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1 doctrine had had the intended effect of altering the behavior of the country you selected in section (2) above since the doctrine was first announced.


6. Use at least four (4) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

To help you understand this assignment further, the following description and examples may be useful. Step 1: Define doctrine and identify why a president would want to announce one. A doctrine is an ideological platform that a president uses to advance a policy towards a country or region in order to accomplish foreign policy goals for the United States, so you will need to expand on this theme. Refer back to Assignment 1, and build on whatever doctrine you wrote about then. Say, for example, you selected the Truman Doctrine. Therefore, this is the only thing you will write about in Assignment 2 step 1. Step 2: Select one country you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship that existed between it and the U.S. Before the presidential doctrine was announced. In the case of Truman, you would pick either the Soviet Union, Greece, or Iran, since all three were affected by his doctrine. If you are writing about the Eisenhower Doctrine, you would choose Lebanon or Egypt; if you wrote about the Kennedy Doctrine, you would have write about Cuba or Vietnam; if your wrote about the Nixon Doctrine, you would choose either Vietnam, Saudi Arabia or Iran; if you chose Carter, you would select either Iran or Afghanistan; and if you wrote about the Reagan Doctrine, you would select Nicaragua, Angola, Russia or Afghanistan (although there were several others).


Step 3: Describe what effect the presidential doctrine you chose has had on regional or global affairs since it was announced during the Cold War. That is, how did the doctrine change the status quo regionally or globally after it was announced by the U.S.? What happened in Western Europe after the Truman Doctrine was announced? What happened in the Middle East after the Eisenhower Doctrine was announced? What happened with Cuba or Vietnam after Kennedy offered up his doctrine of flexible response? What happened in Southeast Asia or the Persian Gulf after the Nixon Doctrine went in effect? What happened in the Middle East after the Carter Doctrine was announced? What happened in Central America or Africa or the Middle East after Reagan announced his doctrine? Step 4: Refer back to the country you selected in step two and describe the relationship that currently exists between the U.S. and that country. How has the relationship changed between the U.S. and that country since the doctrine was announced? Step 5: Evaluate whether or not the presidential doctrine had had the intended effect of altering the behavior of the one country you selected in section (2) above since the doctrine was first announced. Your assignment must: • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; references must follow APA or schoolspecific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions. • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student‟s name, the professor‟s name, the course title, and the date. The


cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are: • Identify the cultural, economic, and political context of information resources, and interpret information in light of that context. • Use technology and information resources to research issues in international problems. • Write clearly and concisely about international problems using proper writing mechanics.

POL 300 Discussion week 4 2. “The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict” Please respond to the following: For thousands of years, up to the 20th century, the land of Palestine was a homeland for Christians, Jews, and Muslims. In the 20th century, the British got involved in the Middle East in several ways, culminating in the attempt to make Palestine a “Homeland” for European Jews to go to. Based on the e-Activity and Roskin Chapter 8 for this week:


Hypothesize on what reasons exist for feeling hopeful about the future of the conflict. If there is no reason to feel hopeful, explain why. Speculate on the probable future of the dispute based on your readings in Roskin and your familiarity with current events. 2.respond to the following keep separate from the top 50 to 100 words I am convinced there is no immediate hope for the conflict to be over. The conflict is been going on for 66 years. Many leaders have poured time and money for peace negotiation. There were lots of incentive given to both side to settle for peace. Unfortunately many attempts have failed. Israel and Palestine desires are the same. Besides the settlement disagreement they both are interested in making Jerusalem the capital city of their country. Palestineâ€&#x;s donâ€&#x;t want Israel recognized as a state. The world is not aware of exactly what and who is at fault so it becomes very hard to solve this conflict. The conflict is been going on for long time and I think it is underestimating the circumstance to believe a meeting will solve the problem. ===============================================
