The Five Global Realities
Mr. GILMAN. Mr. Speaker, last Wednesday, the distinguished Senate majority leader, Mr. Dole of Kansas, gave a landmark address on foreign policy at the Nixon Center for Peace and Freedom Policy Conference.
In this address, Senator Dole outlined five new global realities that affect America's interests abroad, including: First, we are headed into a "Golden Age of Capitalism," second, we must stabilize a "New World Energy Order" based on peace in the Middle East, third, our national security is increasingly dependent on our response to the spread of weapons of mass destruction, fourth, we must recognize the challenge posed by religious extremism, and fifth, our rivalry with Russia's historic imperial ambitions has not ended.
I commend the members attention to this speech and ask that it be printed in full at this point in the Record:
