Foreign policy aims of the Roosevelt [FDR] administration during The Second World War counter-productive and actually "retrospectively, terrible"?
Yet again as extracted from the isegoria.net Internet web site.
"FDR’s foreign policy"
"Foseti wonders what FDR’s foreign policy aims were:
"FDR went into the war with basically no war aims. After a while, he seems to have settled on two"
1) "Totally destroying Germany and Japan"
2) "Ending European colonialism"
"Both of these aims were, retrospectively, terrible."
* "The first served to make the Soviets the (by far) most dominant power in Europe and Asia."
* "The second enticed the Soviets to further expand into the third world"
NO AIMS WHEN ENTERING THE WAR, STUMBLING HIS [FDR] WAY THROUGH IN A COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE MANNER? GRAND STRATEGY AS FORMULATED CREATING YET ONE MORE DANGEROUS AND IMPLACABLE ENEMY [SOVIET UNION]?
