    I've already said I do not. Bombs, however work quite well on foreign aggressors like invaders and terrorists.

    The sanctions aren't even about America.

    which is why we should go back to being a country. countries can thrive long term. empires, not so much.
    I'll stick with being a superpower, we just need to be wiser with our actions.

    being a superpower these days is more trouble than it's worth. i'd prefer that we be a country instead. let the rest of the idiots barfight each other and jockey for position. we should be nation building domestically and innovating solutions for the problems of the next century.

    I think it's worth all the trouble.

    Anyway, we live in a globalized world, you can't just cut yourself out of the world's drama anymore.

    we should be nation building domestically and innovating solutions for the problems of the next century.
    As we agreed on earlier.

    but we don't have to dive into every regional issue, especially when it isn't our region.

    What exactly do you want the United States to do then? I see you people all the time saying that we need to take stand and "grow a pair" but I never see specific things that should have been done differently.

    With an Nobel Prize under his belt, I am sure he will be well protected even if the stalwarts of the USSR may try to eliminate him for orchestrating the collapse.

    Freedoms unfair so, give your liberties to the state. Capitalism sucks, central planning will be a utopia. Hey at least you admit you'd like to see this nation taken down a peg, Obama wont do that.

    How about you move to a "country", and leave us American's be?

    A country is just just like a person. When he gets strong, his greed arises and will push him to be dominant.
