I remember when I was in the Navy, we were asked to write a paper on President Reagan's slogan, "Peace Through Strength". Although I can't remember what I wrote I liked the slogan from the beginning.
We'll never forget the speech, "Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall." President Bush also talked tough and called out those that were evil. President Obama has taken a different approach and has even apologised for America. He has what I call "soft talk".
Is tough talk or soft talk appropriate for this situation?
