  •  It does NOT. Look. We have the UN. Roosevelt, (3+ / 0-)

    who was an architect of the UN, was such because he envisioned a world after WWII (and issues with the Soviet Union) and understood that the US could not sustain itself as a world policeman. Heck, he tried the heck to stay out of WWII even though he was selling weapons to the British AND the Soviets.

    My comment above was somewhat snarky, and not to suggest that I think anyplace should be allowed to become a wasteland through civil war. But I also think the UN is the place to take it. It was designed for that purpose, with the hope that Britain, the US, Russia, and other major players would stop trying to keep the peace in a post-colonial world.

    Get it?

    I resent that. I demand snark, and overly so -- Markos Moulitsas.
