President Carter’s foreign policy failures included not being able to bring home the Iranian Hostages
President Carter had strong believe in the rule of law as applied in international issues and people’s self-determination. His focus was to make the United States a leading nation in promotion of human rights.He advocated for less use of military interventions and an improving relationship between the U.S and the Soviet Union.
In the Iranian hostage crisis, 52 Americans were held hostages in a seizure by the Iranian militants at the U.S Embassy in Tehran.President’s Carters attempt to rescue them failed and hostages were taken to hideouts in the country.This was taken as a major failure.
In 1981 elections Reagan won with many votes defeating Carter, and during his inauguration , the hostages that were in captive for 444 days were released. However, Carter’s foreign policy achievement is still remembered ; during the Yom Kippur War in 1973 it made Israel disengage their armies and returned back to the Sinai Peninsula ending the war.

an empire is a sovereign state functioning as an aggregate of nations or people that are ruled over by an emperor or another kind of monarch. the territory and population of an empire is commonly of greater extent than the one of a kingdom.
an empire can be made solely of contiguous territories, such as the austro-hungarian empire or the russian empire, or of territories far remote from the homeland, such as a colonial empire. aside from the more formal usage, the word empire can also refer colloquially to a large-scale business enterprise (e.g. a transnational corporation), a political organisation controlled by a single individual (a political boss), or a group (political bosses). the word empire is associated with such other words as imperialism, colonialism, and globalization. empire is often used to describe a displeasure to overpowering situations.
