The NEW Fourth Estate's Foreign Policy Questions To Presidential CandidatesEileen Fleming Salem-News.com
The new estimate claims over the next decade the United States is looking at spending $370 billion for its “nuclear forces.”
(CLERMONT, FL) - The New Fourth Estate is comprised of Internet reporters who do not take orders from editors or paychecks from conglomerates. We seek the truth and report as a matter of public service.
In a true democracy with a media dedicated to seeking and reporting the truth the presidential debates would include other parties and inquiries such as these:
1. As Israel has much deeper and decades longer of nuclear secrets buried in the Middle East—will you reply to the following video and explain why –or why not-demand of Israel what is demanded of Iran and listen to Israel's Nuclear Whistle Blower and establish a Nuclear Free Middle East?
2. In light of George Washington’s warning to US:
3. Alfred Nobel’s intention was to reward people with a moral backbone and he hoped to create icons and examples to humankind. Last week the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE was awarded to the EUROPEAN UNION.
President Obama’s Nobel peer, Mairead Maguire wrote:
“Alfred Nobel was a visionary who believed in a demilitarized peaceful world. In his Will he left his Nobel peace prize to those who would work for ‘fraternity among nations’,’abolition or reduction of standing armies’, and ‘holding and promotion of peace congresses’.
“In Nobel’s will the award for Peace was to go to Champions of peace, those working to replace militarism with international order based on law and the abolition of national military forces. Nobel’s vision and dream was to replace the power of militarism and war, with the power of law. I believe the Awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union, does not meet the criteria of Alfred Nobel vision and spirit, and his vision of a demilitarized peaceful world.
“In many ways the European Union has done much in the past sixty years for Peace and reconciliation amongst nations, but it has sadly done little for the demilitarization of Europe. Whilst the EU imposes severe Austerity measures upon many EU countries it simultaneously supports the growing militarisation of Europe by its support for US/NATO (guilty of war crimes against Iraq, Afghanistan, etc., )
Mairead’s friend Mordechai Vanunu has been nominated for the Nobel over twenty times. When he was nominated in 2009, Vanunu wrote the Nobel Committee:
Vanunu is still waiting for his right to leave Israel.
What do the presidential candidates and the two Catholic VP contenders have to say in light of the above and the following?
4. The cost of American nuclear arsenal is projected to reach as much as $661 billion over the next decade, according to a report, released on Oct. 7 by Ploughshares Fund, a group that advocates nuclear disarmament.
Since the end of the Cold War America has relied more on its military capabilities rather than diplomacy in pursuit of foreign policy goals.
It has been said that America possesses power but not legitimacy to influence foreign affairs.
What would you do as President to reestablish America’s ability to lead and as a candidate for US HOUSE I suggest we begin by honoring our obligations as a member state of the UN UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS which includes holding ALL other Member States to it:
This Tuesday, the second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which citizens will ask the questions of the candidates. Next week, Bob Schieffer will be moderator for the last presidential debate and the topic is foreign policy.
