The Nuttle Report:  America First Foreign Policy (By Marc Nuttle)

      Since the beginning of recorded history, sovereign nations have executed foreign policies primarily to serve their self-interests. Even in ancient Egypt, the Pharaoh had a Counselor of Foreign Affairs. Often the purpose of foreign policy was to protect resources, trade routes, land, people, and a way of life. More times than not, foreign policy was an extension of government policy for selfish pursuits. The primary concerns of the needs of the foreign entity were not always considered. War has been described as the extension of government policy by other means. Diplomacy has too many times been abused at the altar of ideological purity.
