After the Second World War, the United States built a series of alliances in order to preserve peace and protect prosperity. That system of alliances is under growing stress. Governor Bush would reinvigorate America’s special role as world leader. He would increase our commitment to NATO to counter an insatiable Russia, including sending an Army Special Forces Group back to European Command. He would increase our presence, restore alliances and build new partnerships in Asia. He would stand up to Iranian aggression in the Middle East, defeat ISIS and restore stability to Iraq and Syria. Finally, Governor Bush would increase partner-building exercises with foreign militaries, to lessen the load on U.S. forces.
