He not only had to discuss the plan with Congress, he had to convince Americans to support his plan for containment. This process was rather complex and required the help of many people. After analyzing an article published by the Presidential Studies Quarterly by Dennis Merrill, a conclusion can be made that if Congress and the American people did not supply the money or support necessary for the implementation of the doctrine, then Truman would not have been able to save Europe from the invasion of communism. As stated in the article, after Congress supported his plan, Truman needed to “address the larger, global theater”, referring to the citizens of the United States (Merrill 2006). Therefore, due to the our government’s separation of powers and the necessary support of a nation, the president may not be considered solely the most powerful person in the
The nation would be more capable of deciding what was best for the other underdeveloped countries in the surrounding region. The diplomacy was based upon the American belief that American ideals were the way of the future for the world; what was good for the US must as well be good for the countries of Latin America. The Hispanic newspaper Regeneración of April 13, 1912, quoted Robert M. La Follette's criticism of the diplomacy. He regarded the diplomacy as an outpost, intervening the nations in Central and South America by imposing the US's method and supervision. The diplomacy often resorted to military power as a solution to the internal conflicts within the region.

Washington would see that individual communities and movements have created change for themselves, while working against others. It’s amazing what could be done if we stopped working against each other. While political parties aren’t going away, which would be to Washington’s dismay, he would suggest that the next president figure out a way to stop the two main parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, from being convinced their beliefs are the “correct” beliefs. If we cannot get rid of political parties, the best we can do is unite them. The only way to change our country is by working with each other, not against each other.
The stage leading up to the outbreak of World War 1 featured incredibly impactful decisions that would eventually create the beginning of the Modern Era. However, diplomacy leading up to World War 1 created a negative impact on the war in that it was largely based upon a balance of power. Globally, this outdated diplomacy lead to the militarism of all countries involved, thus only heightening the tensions, and leading up to the outbreak of World War 1.

Hence, the unipole will try to undermine and compromise these efforts so as to maintain the global status quo and as well ensure the survival of its citizenry from external attack. The years that followed the end of the cold war until the 2001 September terror attacks on the United States of America saw this current unipole undertake the defensive dominance strategy. It is generally proven by the series of events that came to lead to the Kosovo war of 1999 and the Persian gulf war of 1991. Furthermore, the war between Pakistan and India known as the kargil war plus nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran are series of events that explain the United States defense dominance strategy.
The perception with foreign aid does indeed seem ideological and in fact hopeful. However, there is a stark difference between proposing and analyzing a plan and enacting it and making it genuinely practical, which it is not, in today 's agenda driven environment. It is essential to know more transparently about the role of foreign aid what it institutes for countries. There is a conventional belief that foreign aid is always regarded as the right thing to do,

United States presidents often make foreign policy decisions in an attempt to deal with international problems. These decisions have had an impact on both the United States and on other regions. Doctrines are highly debatable, whether they are for a good cause or bad. The purpose of a doctrine is a framework and superstructure than sustains and guides the way we live and act and even interpret the world around us. The Truman and Bush Doctrine were both for the best interest of the people that have made a life-altering impact on America to this day.
