My impression is that American policy speaks not of antagonism but rather partnership.
If I correctly understand the goal of American policy, one wishes Russia to be a partner.
The 2003 war in Iraq may be considered the greatest error in American policy since the Civil War. Its ramifications are earth-shattering and will impact us and our safety for generations. It may completely unravel the entire Middle East forever.
Obama has no power to change American policy because there are people who specialize in drawing these policies, which have been and still are hostile towards Islam.
Unfortunately, the American policy towards Pakistan is just to worry and express concern, and that is not a clear policy at all.
In 2004, President Bush gave Prime Minister Sharon certain guarantees about American policy, but the Obama administration treated those as a kind of private letter having no binding policy impact.
We need a new Latin American policy that is bold - different. We need to focus on building civil society, focus on the lack of infrastructure. We need look at ways to foster economic opportunity. There needs to be a more comprehensive economic vision in the region.
American policy seems to be wed to a perpetual state of war. Why? History shows that the world will always be in flux or turmoil, with different peoples competing for visibility and power. The U.S. cannot fix the fate of every nation.
Our foreign policy has made a wreck of this planet. I'm always in Africa... And when I go to these places I see American policy written on the walls of oppression everywhere.
Foreign aid is neither a failure nor a panacea. It is, instead, an important tool of American policy that can serve the interests of the United States and the world if wisely administered.
When you watch the first 'American Pie' movie, you're like... 'I know that jock who's kind of sweet and has a girlfriend, and I know that weird off-beat kid.'
One of the things that made 'American Pie' great was also the sexiness of it.
No one ever comes up to me and says, 'Hey man, I loved your work in 'Road Trip.' They say, 'Are you that guy?' Like, they have no idea. 'Were you in 'American Pie 2?'
I get a lot of dark scripts now. I don't wanna be stuck doing movies like American Pie. For someone my age, once you get started doing them, it's hard to get out.
I would rather do really good French films than 'American Pie.'
In the '20s and '30s, there were these musicals either set on college campuses or based on classical stories, so any of the Rodgers and Hart musicals certainly influenced me. I was definitely influenced by any of the 'Porgy' songs; I was influenced by 'American Pie.'
In order for American Pie to have worked, you have to have a character who, even while he is humping a pie, the audience still likes.
Well, I'm proud to say American Pie was the kind of crazy, gross-out film that guys thought was the greatest.
I don't know if you guys have ever kissed anybody in real life, but it doesn't always go as planned. It's not always pretty. It doesn't always look like a movie. It usually looks more like 'American Pie.'
I'm so vain, all I could think was I should have stopped at 'American Pie.'
