I don't think any one country should be
world cop. Since we have started two
wars in recent years, it is hard to see
us as agents of peace.
I think our defense posture should be
"strong enough to do our share," not
"stronger than anyone." Insisting on
being number one is the path to
exhaustion and destruction.
The last I heard the effort to form a
new government in Iraq had broken

This is of interest. If US is not world cop, then who would you like it
to be? The Russians, Chinese, one of the South American
dictatorships....moving forward takes a country willing to gamble at
playing the role of policeman in maintaining peace. That is US.....not
because it is better at it but because no one else wants the role.
The only allies we have in Iraq are the Iraqi people who are interested
in Democracy. That's good enough for me.
