 The Carter Doctrine Goes Global [Persian Gulf oil policy] by Michael T. Kiare
Enunciated by then-President Jimmy Carter in his State of the Union speech in January 1980, the doctrine defines Persian Gulf oil as a "vital interest" of the United States that must be defended "by any means necessary, including military force." Seen in this light, Bush Jr.
The globalization of the Carter Doctrine began in the mid-1990s, when the Clinton Administration determined that the Caspian Sea basin-until 1992 under the effective control of the Soviet Union-could become a major source of oil for the United States and its allies, thereby helping to lessen U.S. dependence on the ever-turbulent Persian Gulf.
It is time to repudiate the Carter Doctrine and the Bush-Cheney energy plan and begin the necessary-and inevitable-transition to a post-petroleum economy.

 AMERICAN FUTURE - Trying to make sense of a world in turmoil » The Iranian Threat — First of a Series
Carter's naivite regarding, and subsequent awakening to, the Soviet threat should be a lesson for those who maintain that the threat of a nuclear Iran is being exaggerated—in timing, magnitude, or both.
I also think the Carter Doctrine was rooted in the Cold War which, for most of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s was based on the tacit assumption that both sides realized they had every reason to avoid a nuclear showdown over anything but national survival.
Think of this as the equivalent of the Carter Doctrine, unstated though it is, but given how much stake China has in energy shhipments from Iran to power its economy, which allows it to reduce or restrain its population by providing for job creation and improvements in the standard of living.

 TomPaine.com - Retire The Carter Doctrine
The Bush doctrine and the mess in Iraq rest upon a powerful, bi-partisan consensus: the Carter Doctrine.
Because of this dependence, the Carter Doctrine asserted that “any attempt by an outside force to gain control of the Persian Gulf will be regarded as an assault on the vital interests of the United States of America and…will be repelled by any means necessary including the use of force.”

 Just Wandering and Wondering
In his 1980 State of the Union speech, President Carter outlined an approach to the Middle East that we tend these days to forget.
While I generally regard Carter as the visionary of a national policy that reduces our dependence on Middle Eastern oil, I also believe it is instructive to remember the “speak softly and carry a big stick” aspect of this speech.
Carter’s big stick was very overtly directed at the USSR at the time.

Carter was disinclined to deal with the terrorists in any fashion.
Carter knew this, of course, but was too feeble, too weak, too submissive and too pacifistic a president to handle the problem.
Had Carter properly dealt with the Iranian terrorists then, the United States would not be having to figure out how to deal with them now as a far more powerful and dangerous enemy that can strike targets thousands of miles away with ballistic missiles and targets tens of thousands of miles away with suicide bombers.

 A. Tappen Soper on Carter & Iraq on National Review Online   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The tenets of the just-war doctrine that Carter mentions begin with the statement that war can only be waged as a last resort.
Carter next mentions the need for weapons to discriminate between combatants and noncombatants and suggests that ours won’t.
He is on his most solid ground here; but that part of the doctrine has to be adapted to a world where weapons of mass destruction exist, and are likely to be used by an enemy with a well-established pattern of reckless military behavior.

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are the defining aspects of what has become known as the Bush Doctrine, a foreign policy marked by strategic military preemption and unilateralism, and making no distinction between terrorists and those who harbor them.

While Brzezinski and Christopher were trying to clarify U.S. policy abroad, there was increasing concern in Washington because the Carter Administration was once again sending out conflicting signals.
Even with allowances for election-year hyperbole, the invasion of Afghanistan is not the most serious crisis since World War II, as Carter has claimed.
Some observers also believe that the Carter policy slides too lightly over the prospect of internal subversion, which is the most likely way the Soviets would try to extend their influence.
