    Libya and Syria and Ukraine. When does the US stop acting as if we are the policeman of the world and our bombs and military can solve the politics and wars going on in every nation, anywhere?

    I care about the people dying in these wars and battles, too, but American involvement doesn't ever seem to solve the problem. We just spend and spend and spend, and kill a lot of people, and then, when we leave, as we have to eventually, the situation is horrendous for the very people we intervened on behalf of in the first place.

    We need to learn from our past -- we do not make these wars better.
