Foreign Policy Background & Positions

This was inspired by Rudy's statements in Iowa last week as reported by Eric Kleefeld at TPM Election Central:

Top Iowa Story: Rudy Attacks Bill Clinton — Plus Russia And China

"Our military is too small to deal with the Islamic terrorism threats," Giuliani said, "but it really is too small to deter would-be aggressors to even think of challenging us. And that's due to Bill Clinton."

Instead, Rudy called for a massive military buildup in order to "send a very strong signal to China and then Russia ... that it doesn't make sense to challenge us."

Without getting all BagnewsNote-ese, I considered using the title "Rudy's Risk", but in the end decided that "Foreign Policy Background & Positions" was better for the juxtaposition with the Risk game board in the image background. (image posted at LOLrudy)

Electile Dysfunction

The GOP candidates continue to present their bloodthirsty, warmongering Republican base a testosterone battle in their competition for who can be worse than Bush. This was an attempt to contrast the radical, aggressive, militaristic positions in foreign policy of Bush and the candidates while playing on Theodore Roosevelt's famous quote. The title was chosen to tie their foreign policy with a electorate that has largely rejected Bush's war and foreign policy. (image posted at LOLrudy)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
