      for example the US shouldn't use drones over Pakistan, Yemen, and other countries where we are not officially at war (what a quaint concept!) to target "terrorists" (a definition which includes basically "any adult male") and accidentally killing women, children, infants, and at times firing on those who attempt to rescue them or document the crime.

      It means that when transnational corporations which use us for a base of operations get themselves into a jam, they ought to be left to twist in the wind.

      It means that we should withdraw all of our military forces from areas in which the local inhabitants and rightful rulers do not want them stationed.

      If we made even token efforts to live up to the true meaning of our creed, there would never have been a 9/11.

      There are no tactical answers to a problem created by our foreign policy.
