BETTER HAVE YOUR "AMERICAN GAME-FACES" ON...like the Crazy Fans you are!  BECAUSE YOU HAVE A HUGE TASK ON EXAM DAY...



Given the complexity and longevity of the developing crisis in the Middle East, the President of the United States of America has decided to re-evaluate America’s “War on Terror.”  Since 9/11, over 9,000 Americans have been lost and over $4 Trillion spent over the past 14 years. The costs in “Blood” and “Treasure” in this, our longest war in our nation’s history, require serious consideration as we move ahead in our history.  The affects are being felt both at home and abroad.  Most Americans feel we cannot continue in this path. The president recognizes the responsibility this great nation has as “leader of the free world”, and that America is a powerful nation with tremendous responsibility, however perhaps it is time to change perspective and priorities.  All politics must be put aside in this debate as the debate supports THE FIVE P’s of American Foreign Policy, and the 5 Ideals this nation was founded upon.  Today’s Committee is asking all participants to weigh in on the “lessons” this nation has learned from its past, and are also reminded that this nation can never “forget 9/11.” 

Dear APUSH Glacier America Student,
You have been called on to appear before the Committee on Foreign Relations of the U.S. Senate Thursday and Friday, June 11-12 2015.  You will be  assigned to persuade the committee members that your option should be the basis for future U.S. policy toward the Middle East.  Please refer to your packet/folder to assist you in today’s hearing…and get busy preparing for your presentation.  Be ready to defend your option to the core! 

SEE YOU ON GAME DAY AMERICAGLACIER'S FINEST!
