Howard Schultz on War & Peace
Starbucks CEO; independent candidate for President until July 2019
But President Trump has questioned this essential alliance. He has criticized it, and he has weakened it. This is a fundamental misunderstanding of America's role in the world. We must stand with our allies.
We must support the alliance's efforts to transition resources to the increasing threat from cyber attacks around the globe--most especially from Russia. NATO needs even more fortification to fight this growing menace, which may soon become the gravest threat facing the American people.
As NATO looks ahead to its next 70 years, the United States must continue to be a leader for peace and security. And we must do so in concert with our allies.
In my family home in Bayview, there was a palpable anxiety not only in our apartment but throughout the projects. I was [not] the only young man awaiting fate to reveal itself through a random drawing. Despite her patriotism and love for her country, my mother prayed that my birthday, July 19, would be paired with a high draft number. She was not alone in her prayers. By 1972, so many young men were still dying for a war whose purpose and mission were unclear and unsupported. Those who did return, even if wounded, were often met with indifference or saddled with a nation's rage.
I shared the country's antiwar sentiment and distrust of government and was vocal in my stance against Vietnam among friends and family, but I did not protest in the streets.
