There is a difference in Iraq. The people in Poland were not being mass murdered by the leader for fun.

No, they were too busy attacking helpless German radio stations. Thank goodness Hitler had the chutzpah to stand up to them.

Let's go to Africa based on this view! Why aren't we there eh? No oil? No Israel pushing us to do it? We don't care about black people? What is it?

Why did you automatically assume you'd be kicked out? Far from it. You'll leave of your own volition, for reasons you cannot yet perceive

What works one to one doesn't work in global. Not at all.

Let's look at two very quick examples of cowboy diplomacy at work that are REAL and NOW.

Russia vs Georgia. Russia invaded Georgia, started and supported ethnic clensing, much as they did in Chechnya. Now Russia has the second most powerful military in the world. Conflict with them, even if our troop strength was 100% would be difficult at best and loses would be staggering.

China vs Tibet. China has been systematically cleansing much of dissident activity from Tibet for the past 30 years. Human Rights violations are rampant. Now China has the third most powerful military and second biggest economy [largest by many measures]. Going in as "world's policemen" would invite a conflict of epic proportion against an enemy that measures battles in decades and centuries, not months and years.

How would you commit America to address these two problems using your theory?

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

I don't run the country. If I did, then we would be there too.
