America's Cuba policy is that which will curry favor with the anti-Castro Cuban voters in Florida and it is influenced directly by the Cuban Political Action Committee in Washington DC (PAC). America's immigration policy is that which will curry favor with the Hispanic voters and it is influenced directly by the Hispanic PAC. America's Middle East policy is that which will curry favor with the Jewish vote and it is influenced directly by the Jewish PAC. And so on and so forth. American foreign policy is a product of an incoherent mishmash of special interest groups each pushing its own unique agenda that may or may not have any relevance to America itself. America has become a giant host on which feed diverse cultures of parasites. No candidate can articulate a comprehensive and coherent US foreign policy for fear of stepping on parasitic toes. When a Presidential candidate begins to hem and haw you can bet that the issue in question is curry masala.
