Liberal intellectuals have in vain been looking for a Trump doctrine. They are incapable to see what is right in front of their eyes. In November 2016 we launched our analysis, Planet Trump: 50 Paradigm Shifts (more). America First was a slam dunk. Less obvious perhaps is the President's Foreign Policy Doctrine for world peace. Over 500 days into the administration we can draw some conclusions. 

No matter how careful they comb the 500 days' track record of the present administration, liberal intellectuals can't find a unifying Trump doctrine. Only recently Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic managed to get the administration's motto out of a senior official: "We Are America, bitch" - in other words, America First (source). That's a lot faster than CNN's Jake Tapper's dim query only last weekend, enquiring "where's American exceptionalism in the age of Trump?" Thanks; we knew the answer to that question three years ago. For the careful observer the President's diplomatic out of the box recipe for world peace is discernable as well. Case in point: Saudi Arabia and North Korea.

Like millennial Saudi reformer crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (tweet), North Korea's Kim Jong-un would also like to lead "a normal country" (dixit MbS). This is why the Trump foreign policy doctrine of security, prosperity and technology for terrorism/nukes is so attractive. The third generation has no connection to the failed ideologies of the last century: Salafist Islam and Stalinist Communism respectively.

If there is one intractable problem area the Trump doctrine is not going to work, it's Iran. The Mullahs couldn't care less for broad vistas involving prosperity and technology.

But this is not the case for the people of Iran, which like the rest of the Middle East consists of young millennial men and women who have no connection to Shia teleological dystopia of the Twelth Imam (or the Twelver theology (source)). 

That the Trump alliance has already elevated to official policy, the idea to bypass the Mullahs and go straight to the Iranian people, is evidenced by a recent video message by Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu to the Iranian people. He is offering them water treatment technology that could potentially turn Iran into the Middle East's bread basket.

But first the evil regime of the Mullahs must be overcome. Which is philosophically correct: nations must free themselves; no one can do that for them. We can help them by changing the conditions from the outside, but in the end it is upto them to throw off the yoke of the oppressors.
