Wasn't that Geo. Bush, II's thinking? Not that we took on the whole world --just the pieces of it that WERE directly sponsoring terrorism on us and threatening our national security interests. Even the charge that we cared only about oil overlooks the fact that OIL IS a national security interest. The US is not ready to function militarily or economically without foreign sources of fuel.
This fictional movie president committed us even beyond our national interests --saying "never again" to ignore the plight of thousands being displaced and murdered by their rogue leaders. He appealed to the world to do what is "right."
And said, we will not negotiate --that these rogue gov'ts. needed to fear us [of the free world.]
President Obama, watch the movie! Not that we can afford to go everywhere. We don't have enough people to give to this cause --nor enough money at this time. But National Security and defending the defenseless ought to always be uppermost priorities for a great, humane nation.
