  1. Define
    presidential doctrine and summarize the regional or global events
    during the Cold War leading up to the formation of the presidential
    doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1.
  2. Select one country
    you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship
    that existed between the country you selected and the U.S. before the
    presidential doctrine was announced.
  3. Describe the relationship that currently exists between the U.S. and the country you selected in section (2) above.
  4. Describe
    the effect that the presidential doctrine has had on regional or global
    affairs since it was announced during the Cold War.
  5. Assess
    whether or not the presidential doctrine you wrote about in Assignment 1
    doctrine had had the intended effect of altering the behavior of the
    country you selected in section (2) above since the doctrine was first
    announced.
  6. Use at least four (4) quality academic resources in
    this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as
    academic resources.

To help you understand this assignment further, the following description and examples may be useful.

Step 1: Define doctrine and identify why a president would want to announce one.
A doctrine is an ideological platform that a president uses to
advance a policy towards a country or region in order to accomplish
foreign policy goals for the United States, so you will need to expand
on this theme.

Refer back to Assignment 1, and build on
whatever doctrine you wrote about then. Say, for example, you selected
the Truman Doctrine. Therefore, this is the only thing you will write
about in Assignment 2 step 1.

Step 2: Select one country you wrote about in Assignment 1 and describe the Cold War relationship that existed between it and the U.S.
Before the presidential doctrine was announced. In the case of
Truman, you would pick either the Soviet Union, Greece, or Iran, since
all three were affected by his doctrine. If you are writing about the
Eisenhower Doctrine, you would choose Lebanon or Egypt; if you wrote
about the Kennedy Doctrine, you would have write about Cuba or Vietnam;
if your wrote about the Nixon Doctrine, you would choose either Vietnam,
Saudi Arabia or Iran; if you chose Carter, you would select either Iran
or Afghanistan; and if you wrote about the Reagan Doctrine, you would
select Nicaragua, Angola, Russia or Afghanistan (although there were
several others).

Step 3: Describe what
effect the presidential doctrine you chose has had on regional or global
affairs since it was announced during the Cold War.
That is,
how did the doctrine change the status quo regionally or globally after
it was announced by the U.S.? What happened in Western Europe after the
Truman Doctrine was announced? What happened in the Middle East after
the Eisenhower Doctrine was announced? What happened with Cuba or
Vietnam after Kennedy offered up his doctrine of flexible response?
What happened in Southeast Asia or the Persian Gulf after the Nixon
Doctrine went in effect? What happened in the Middle East after the
Carter Doctrine was announced? What happened in Central America or
Africa or the Middle East after Reagan announced his doctrine?

Step 4:
Refer back to the country you selected in step two and describe the
relationship that currently exists between the U.S. and that country.
How has the relationship changed between the U.S. and that country since the doctrine was announced?

Step 5:
Evaluate whether or not the presidential doctrine had had the intended
effect of altering the behavior of the one country you selected in
section (2) above since the doctrine was first announced.
