Be very judicious about projecting force

America is the beneficiary of the international world order we helped establish throughout the twentieth century. That said, we have deluded ourselves into thinking that we are capable of doing things that we are not, sometimes at a terrible cost to ourselves and others. My first principles concerning foreign policy are restraint and judgment--we should be very judicious about projecting force and have clear goals that we know we can accomplish. We should treat our men and women in the armed services as the brave and self-sacrificing leaders that they are, both during and after their deployments. If I send young men and women into harm's way, they will know that vital national interests are at stake and there is a clear plan for them to achieve their goal in a reasonable time frame.

Puerto Rican statehood is overdue step toward equality

Puerto Rico should be a state--they function as one right now without the political rights and bankruptcy protection. If Puerto Ricans looked like Swedes they'd be a state already. We must not only offer them political equality but help them rebuild their economy and infrastructure--it will take time but that's what Americans do.
