America’s foreign policy

arc A. Thiessen, a Washington Post journalist, compared and contrasted Presidents Bush and Obama’s military doctrines in an editorial, titled, The Obama-Bush Doctrine. The article can be found, here:http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-obama-bush-doctrine/2012/05/31/gJQAGZmM4U_story.html

Both Bush and Obama’s doctrines spell out the rules of U.S. military engagement in today’s post-Cold War era.

How has the use of both the Bush and Obama’s military doctrines affected the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq? How has the use of these military doctrines altered America’s reputation with the countries of the Middle East, Iran, China, and Europe?
