J F Kennedy’s foreign policy

Aspects of foreign policy in his tenure revolved on politicizing and forcing America’s bullish approach on economic and military position. His efforts were less than effective and had what depicted a fizzled outlook. The many controversies and complex achievements of J F Kennedy were moral lessons for American leaders and formed the platform of American foreign policy doctrines and purpose principals. Kennedy was edging closer to forcing out the American dependency on nuclear supremacy as its military prowess back bone.

In his assertions Kennedy was less skeptical about the communism aspect of the American army. He told away of the elements of communist policies within ranks expressing distaste at it and the subsequent ridding of the air force, the navy and the army of communism elements. In his speech at New Mexico in 1962, Kennedy explained the genuine position of communism in his government when he emphasized and stated that it had been eliminated in the strategic air force. New York Times (1963). This was indicative of his dissatisfaction with communism as socio-political doctrine that was eroding the American society.

Strategic air force was a condensing terminology of the level of communism in the American state and removing it from the latter was such a success that needed to be told away. The purpose of such and overt attribute to negative reception of communism was to ascertain vehemence on Russian foreign policy and military plans in Europe. He was merely giving speculation about Russian doctrines within political fields in Europe as a dangerous and sickly venture which was tantamount to a full scale escalation of global conflicts.

This marks the onset of the discussion on Kennedy’s handling and dissemination of his power as president of the United States and his subsequent conquest and failures on aligning global; politics positioning to level. Joseph. A. Loftus (2007): The New York Times. The onset of the Kennedy foreign policy complex was the dogma surrounding his ancestry. Being from Irish ancestors Kennedy might have had an over view about the Communism implications and repercussions in the Europe. He might have had insight on the Polish problem and the oppression that emanated from Communism.

His profound hatred for communist doctrines and the blanketing of Russian escalation as a fact objective to project the communist angle as a malady explained his efforts and desire to edge out the problem as he deemed it. This was the most palatable part of his ideology. It clearly stipulates on the causes of Kennedy’s actions which ranged to invasions and radical decisions. More or so he was a president who projected the power of the American people. He was aptly conforming to the ethics of the declaration of independence, the American people were one and would remain so, and that may God relentlessly bless America.

This still is a commonplace assertion and policy adopted by each American president up to date. The foreign policy issue and the communism dogma J F Kennedy would not have deemed it as crisis until he invaded Cuba. Cuba at that time was the stronghold of communism in the South American expanse. When the Berlin problem became apparent, John FitzGerald Kennedy was worried about the escalation of The Soviet Socialist Republic in spreading what was deemed as its military-economics in the world.

Kennedy’s anti-Soviet policy was strategically aimed at hemming out the power of the political out look of the world in the face of adversity as portrayed by the nascent issue of Soviet communism. Berlin issue proved the Soviet escalation was far much broader and profound than anticipated. His advisors then were obliged to make concessions with the president to bring the inner strengths of America to the global front and confront the Russian problem. The subsequent presence of Russian nuclear weapons was a turning point.

He was rapid in his actions and he maneuvered to establish American position on the global military position. Communism in Europe was on the strategic communist blockage of the Germany free access. The Berlin wall was a painful blow to human rights and the freedom on the Germans. Kennedy deliberated and the initiative was to up defense through an increased and powerful force. The army was increased and the American defense was made steady and more powerful. This forced the Communist threat to look more abrasive and was force to disintegrate its structural formations in the German angle.

But this was not without a blow to the Soviet leader Khrushchev. Kennedy made it clear that he was not to respect any Soviet accession on the German issue and when he visited the Germany in 1963 he loudly declared his support for Berlin by declaring in German that he was a Berliner "Ich bin ein Berliner"      James N. (1992) The Presidency of John F. Kennedy On the Cuban crisis Kennedy was a gentleman in his presidency. He never screened CIA actions which were a mere hierarchy of the Cuban communism hatred by the Americans. A strategic attack force was compromised when it tried to secure Cuba.

This flared the Fidel Castro problem which has plagued the American government over and over subsequently leading to the offsetting of new American enemies like the Venezuela. However Kennedy’s action depicted the leadership in him. He refused to bulge to pressure from congress to remove Senator McCarthy who was on the spot over his inappropriate investigations on communism. Kennedy had dissected the American’s into two. He was very apt in securing the American vote and confidence; hence he supported the Black community and adopted their perceived governance and human rights policies causing acrimony in the congress.

He was enigmatic on this and remained focused on Americanization rather than a divided country where racism and inequality surmounted the social life’s tranquil. Kennedy’s view was not without reason and objective. His adversary Nikita was determined to hurt American efforts to put democratic governments and democratic institutions through peaceful means and very pivotal support structures based on sharing and exchange of economic gains from such relations. Russia viewed its system as more appropriate and was at a competition with the Americans.
