The salvation of our brothers and sisters in Asia and in Europe was a cause worth fighting for in an effort to repel the Nazi yolk, halt the Stalinist advance, and overthrow the Empire of Japan. The 'America First' proponents were wrong in 1939 and they would be wrong today.
    I agree that preventing genocidal situations is worthwhile, IF and when we have good reason to believe that our intervention will do more good than harm. However, short of preventing genocide, we should stay out of other nation's affairs militarily.

    A couple of points:

    1. Although shakey we gave Iraq a chance.....They have a democratic elected Gov...They have to make it work now...........No one said it would be easy.

    2 Saddam and his sons will not be raping teen age girls again.

    3. We don't have to worry about Saddam giving a dirty Nuke to some terrorist organization to explode here.

    Those are the facts...............They are undenialble.

    It's not shocking, but is also meaningless.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Quite frankly, there are some parts of the world that need strong-armed leaders, because the population isn't yet capable of handling a democracy. They haven't been culturally conditioned to accept its weak points with its strengths.
