Richard Nixon's justification for the phased withdrawal of the United States from Vietnam, for example, came to be called the Nixon Doctrine.
The purpose of a foreign policy doctrine is to provide general rules for the conduct of foreign policy.

 Kennedy Doctrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Kennedy Doctrine was essentially an expansion of the foreign policy prerogatives of the previous administrations of Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman.
The Truman Doctrine focused on the containment of communism by providing assistance to countries resisting communism in Europe while the Eisenhower Doctrine was focused upon providing both military and economic assistance to nations resisting communism in the Middle East and by increasing the flow of trade from the United States into Latin America.
The Kennedy Doctrine was based on these same objectives but was more concerned with the spread of communism and Soviet influence in Latin America following the Cuban revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power under Eisenhower during the 1950s.

 | Book Review | Law and History Review, 17.3 | The History Cooperative
Kennedy's was among the best of this work and so his views on adjudication seem to me to bear consideration, even though they are not written for historians but as part of continuing jurisprudential debate.
Kennedy is careful to make it clear that he believes that even in appellate courts there are cases where all that is called for is application of the obvious rule.
And he adopts a restrained view of "the political." His is not an argument at the level of "Liberalism"—a grand political theory that undergirds all contemporary legal and political thought in an endless struggle to suppress unarticulated communitarian alternatives—but rather at the level of contemporary domestic politics—liberals and conservatives in common parlance.

 Critical International Law: Recent Trends in the Theory of International Law
Kennedy's argument is purely analytical and remains firmly within the legal texts acceptable to the discipline of international law as at present practiced.
Kennedy perceives how the discussion is not, in the practice of the discipline, pushed to the point that sources discourse actually touches upon the modernist/positivist evidences of consent or the naturalist's objective values of justice.
As with sources doctrine, there is an acute awareness that discourse must not appear to reach a `logical' conclusion, because such extremism will reveal the absence of the referents which might appear to be supposed by the language of the texts.

 Kennedy LBJ Vietnam: The Cost of total containment
Johnson's domestic policies were a continuation of Kennedy's and although there is some speculation as to how their foreign policies may have differed in the case of Vietnam in light of the evidence presented this will be proved to the contrary to the overarching aims of the function of the Kennedy presidency.
Kennedy like Eisenhower failed to understand that nationalism had many forms and although some were marxist in application, it was the only ideology that provided a discourse on land redistrubition and economic reform.
Kennedy responds by increasing the Defense budget by 3 billon dollars and "tripled draft quotas" (Lafeber, 596) On August 6th the Soviet Premiere commences the building of the Berlin wall to stem the tide of East German refugees.

 THE MANY MINDS OF W.P.M. KENNEDY   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Kennedy made a large contribution to his adopted homeland; he was an impressive scholar, and his vision of legal education is a chastening reminder to contemporary law schools that they were not the first to embrace the interdisciplinary study of law.
This analysis gave Kennedy a sharp insight into Canadian history, a means of accommodating national autonomy and the Commonwealth, a perspective on federalism, and a vision of a sane world.
Kennedy’s understanding of the significance of these cases for the division of powers, especially for national economic regulation, was demonstrated in two reviews written about the same time Smith’s comment appeared, but this very understanding is in contrast to his lack of discussion of the modes of interpretation.

 Day - THE PUBLIC FORUM DOCTRINE'S "GOVERNMENT INTENT STANDARD"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The traditional public forum doctrine, therefore, was an interpretive methodology which expressed proper skepticism about the actual motives, or purposes, of government officials when they attempted to regulate public areas which were either traditionally or objectively available to the public for free speech.
With this purpose in mind, Justice Kennedy concluded that the Court's application of the public forum doctrine was completely antithetical to the historic purposes of the First Amendment and the public forum doctrine theory.
For doctrinal purposes, the significant difference between the government intent standard and the objective characteristics standard would be the degree of deference given to the governmental decision-makers.

 Violation of the Monroe Doctrine
Kennedy was handier because he was in office but he pulled a "Clinton" which is amazing because Clinton was just a young boy at the time.
For weeks he postured, huffed and puffed, and cited the Monroe Doctrine as justification for action against Castro and the Soviets.
Nevertheless, Kennedy negotiated with the Soviets and agreed to withdraw American missiles from Turkey and to freeze deployment of new nuclear weapons to Europe if the Soviets would withdraw their missiles from Cuba.

 Antiwar Then, Antiwar Now
Kennedy's public support of the illegal demonstrators was key in turning the tide of opinion - and then law - in the veterans' favor, and a crucial blow against the war was struck (See ''Home to War'' by Gerald Nicosia).
To Kennedy, preventive war is still anathema, and his denunciation of the Bush embrace of preventive war against Iraq draws its edge from the fact that President John Kennedy, in 1961 and 1962, rejected the argument for preventive war against the Soviet Union, protecting a moral boundary.
The name Kennedy is properly attached to this nation's noblest impulse, and it is fitting that the last of the brothers is raising his voice in its defense.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Although Kennedy does not agree with the intent of the Rooker-Feldman Doctrine, Kennedy understands that, in spite of this country's move toward bigger federal government, the stated intention of the doctrine is to give deference to the state courts decision as a sovereign which is responsible for its own lawful state proceedings.
Kennedy was permitted to briefly listen to one of the portions of the real tapes of the hearing, which was taped by a court watcher, and which the alleged corresponding transcript is now in question.
Kennedy is also putting in a motion to the state court requesting what Constitutional provision, statute or regulation permit's a judge in his judicial capacity to change or otherwise alter court transcripts, or to knowingly ignore this criminal activity.

 In Idaho Speech, Robert Kennedy Jr. Lambasts the Media | New West Network
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental activist and son of the late Senator Robert Kennedy, was the keynote speaker at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival in late May, and yesterday I read a lengthy account of the talk on Sun Valley Online (a New West affiliate).
Never mind that the Fairness Doctrine says nothing about media ownership, and was not “a law...passed in 1928,” as Kennedy apparently stated, but rather an FCC rule that was first put in place in 1949; let’s consider the logic of the argument.
The Fairness Doctrine was upheld, barely, by the Supreme Court in 1969, but the rule relied entirely on the idea that broadcast frequencies are a scarce public resource and thus the government is within its rights to impose some requirements on broadcast licenses.

John F. Kennedy was cautious on the issue, didn't speak out against McCarthy (he was absent when the censure vote was taken and never said how he would have voted).
When John F. Kennedy presented his budget to the nation after his first year in office, it was clear that, liberal Democrat or not, there would be no major change in the distribution of income or wealth or tax advantages.

The host is playing a clip of Ted Kennedy declaring “Iraq is George Bush’s Vietnam.” Well, Ted, we’re a long way from Vietnam, when American irresolution condemned millions to the gulag or to exile.
Kennedy also noted that “iraq was not an imminent threat,” and he is correct, in the same sense that Afghanistan was not an imminent threat in 1997, or Germany in 1937, or Russia in 1919.
Beneath all the diplobabble is a clear tenet of the Kerry Doctrine: Actions are legitimized solely by the quantity of allies.

 Chapter 9: The Heart of Doctrine
The U. Army's doctrine of counterinsurgency existed at two levels on the eve of the Kennedy presidency, distinguished by the degree of specialization of the forces it was intended to address.
The doctrine of the early 1960s addressed the potential for indigenous irregulars to be organized and trained for guerrilla (not counterguerrilla) warfare, as if tasked to carry out a resistance campaign against a foreign enemy.
Doctrine subsequently provided for the employment of such "guerrilla" forces in counterinsurgency, as assets through which to deny victory to foreign aggression (read: subversion and insurgency) through the methods of unconventional warfare-proposals described below in the Latin American context.

 The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor An in-depth monetary, economic, geopolitical and preciou
The "Fairness Doctrine", which has no more to do with "fairness" than Planned Parenthood has to do with family planning, has been tried before (for almost 40 years) and stifled controversial, conservative, traditionalist, Christian public affairs programming to the extent that it was neutered and became almost non-existent.
In the period between 1949 and 1987 (when the FCC repealed the "Fairness Doctrine" in '87) it was used aggressively by the Kennedy, Johnson and the Nixon Administrations to stifle political opposition.
Indeed, as the agency predicted, the repeal of the doctrine has been followed by an expansion in the kind of robust debate that promotes the principles on which this country was founded.

 The Durable Doctrine - TIME
Politicians and private citizens had been barraging Kennedy with demands that he "do something." Moscow, having the time of its life, had issued a statement warning Kennedy that he had better do nothing if he wanted to stay out of trouble.
Kennedy's statement failed to still voices that had been raised against his inaction in the Cuba crisis.
Said he in 1960: "Now the remains of this doctrine should best be buried, as every dead body is, so that it does not poison the air by its decay." Some Americans, even including some officials of the U.S. Government, look upon it as, if not quite dead, then at least moribund.

 On the 40th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination
I agree that Kennedy is becoming an increasingly enigmatic figure as distance adds a chance for wider perspective on his political legacy.
In fact, it is Johnson who further personifies the contradictions of the Kennedy legacy, as if both the domestic and foreign policy initiatives of Kennedy were taken to their logical conclusions in Johnson.
Perhaps the Kennedy legacy is both the hope and the heartbreak of what this country has wished for itself.

 H-Net Review: Mark T. Berger on The Most Dangerous Area in the World: John F. Kennedy Confronts ...
Rabe emphasizes that while the combination of anticommunist globalism and the Cuban revolution was the proximate cause of the Alliance for Progress, it had its intellectual roots in the classical theories of modernization which rose to prominence in the 1950s and early 1960s.
The Kennedy administration's involvement in British Guiana (where its "virulent anticommunism" would lead, in the author's words, to "astonishing positions on the issues of colonialism and racism") is also examined in detail (p.
[8] While he concludes that Kennedy's policies were consistent with long-standing U.S. goals in the region, the angle of his criticism of the Alliance for Progress (and what appears to be a tone of disappointment) implies that its "grand goals" did not have to be "compromised" or "mutilated" and were in some sense achievable.

Kennedy's first important idea is that school segregation and racial imbalance is no longer a white-nonwhite dichotomy.
Justice Kennedy sensibly argues that school districts must do better, and use finer-grained racial classifications if they are to use them at all.

 Discovery Institute - Article Database - The O'Connor Test
Kennedy wrote, “Government policies of accommodation, acknowledgment, and support for religion are an accepted part of our political and cultural heritage.”
But whatever its flaws, Kennedy’s doctrine is an improvement over O’Connor’s inherently subjective approach.
Of course, Justice Kennedy’s coercion analysis will control the Court only if President Bush nominates an individual who eschews the Left’s “strict separationism” or O’Connor’s no-endorsement approach to the Establishment Clause.
