      Read Orwell's "1984". More on the mark than most assume.

      It boils down to the old saying "Follow the money". The US is, and has been, for sale to the highest bidder for decades. Ever more so after WWII and the creation of NATO and the UN.
      We are also run by incredibly corrupt leaders.
      Consider the Vietnam war. JFK made the mistake of putting advisers in but not boots on the ground, as the saying goes. After JFK was assassinated LBJ wanted desperately to get further involves, more accurately the arms manufacturers wanted to get in. LBJ's answer was to fabricate the "Gulf of Tonkin Incident". Supposedly North Vietnamese patrol ships attacked a US cruiser, an outright act of war against the US. The only problem is that it never happened. Shortly before his death the then Secretary of Defense McNamara admitted this, 30 years too late.
      Fast forward to the ME and Chaney. Bush (W) was never what one would call a bright bulb and was probably just as far in bed with the shadow people but Chaney led the charge and between them they fabricated the WMD that every outside expert said never existed.
      So ask yourself who is making a fortune off of these things?
      I call then the Shadow People because they are always behind the scene pulling the strings. They run the Federal Reserve, corporations like Haliburton and Black Water. They are the ones who are absorbing the Billions of dollars that can't be found. They also are behind the vast lobbies that buy and sell politicians like 3rd world call girls.

    I wish I knew the answer to this. I am an American and get tired of all the so called " policing" we do. Wish other countries would step up and take the bhurden away that we have taken on. Seems as if we feel obligated to fix all the problems no matter where they are and who they involve.

    I am disgusted as an American as we have bigger problems here at home we face. Wish we could get our politicians on the same page to figure it all out.

      War is a very profitable business so here is your answer. US plays it as a "charitable" and humanitarian action, but it is far from it an it serves ONLY its interest on securing natural resourses and world domination; no more, no less

    well according to 'Keynesian' economists...it keeps economy moving by allowing war production.. paid for by debt... which artificially increses that GDP number...and makes the socialists happy about GDP growth... even though they hate the war machine... meanwhile conservatives sit on the production side as board of directors of the war machine companies...turning great profits

    better to associate with 'Austrian' economic philosophy which hates both the war machine and its artificial GDP growth.... they generally take the Libertarian side of politics although 'Austrian' economics is in itself not associated politically to any one party

    I find it doubtful that the U.S. feels obligated to fix all the problems around the world. It is all about national interest, or how the leadership defines it. The U.S. does not intervene or get involved because it is obligated, it does so because its leadership feels it is in the national interest to do so.

    The key questions to ponder on: What is in the national interest of the U.S.? Who is defining and determining U.S. national interests? Is it the American people, special interests?

      As an American , i think its appalling , i think we should stay home keep our people over here and let the other countries just kill themselves , they dont want our help , never have wanted it so why bother , they should step up and defend their own country , If they were capable of doing anything at all though , other countries wouldnt have to step in and defend the civilians against terroistic bullies . I still under any and all  circumstances think , America should pull out of every country and mind our own business and take care of home before they take care of anything anywhere , as a taxpayer , It is sickening to have to help other countries , when they dont want to even help themselves , if they did , their wouldnt be comments like the one posted that we are all engaging in , i say and im sure millions of other people say , let them all take care of themselves ....

    I heard a comedian explain it wonderfully the other day. They pointed out how late the States were in joining WW2 but they must feel really bad about that because they are among the first in just about every major war since, sometimes even starting them in the first place! America just feels so bad to have waited so long to get involved with WW2 that they just wont ever make that mistake again tongue

    The leading 'Keynesian' economists have this to say about war buildup  ...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6fkmhnf … re=related... even if its's fake.. so just imagine what real wars help them acheive in their thinking. It's all about creating fake GDP - these are the economic advisors on the side of current administration.

    Not only that, but it takes the focus of the people off of the very real problems we are facing here and now. When national policy fails, start a war. None of this is about human rights, yet that is what they want us to believe. We are freeing the poor oppressed masses. WE have become the oppressors, yet, in truth, that is what Amerika was built on.
