Take on foreign policy and the end of the cold war

Take on foreign policy and the end of the cold war

  • Bush took quite the approach with his characteristic conservatism and pragmatism towards foreign policies (he spent most of his presidency on foreign policies) with the help of Dick Cheney(Secretary of Defense), Brent Scowcroft(National Security Adviser), James baker (Secretary of State), and Colin Powell (chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff). These were the advisers he picked, because he thought they would work well together towards his goals of stability in the world.

  • Bush, also helped to bring about the end of the Cold War. He did this through encouraging the independence of many of the countries in the Soviet Union, bringing down the Berlin wall, and establishing trade relations and strategic arms reduction treaties between the U.S. and soon to be former Soviet Union.
