Sort of a silly notion. At some point we are going to run out of young men/women if we insist on policing the world. How many troops can we pull out of Iraq, Afghanistan(sp?), S. Korea, etc. and ask these young people who have already pulled multiple tours of duty in these lousy countries to take on more questionable roles. Should the U.S. also intercede in African tribal disputes in the diamond mining regions? How about going into Canada and taking sides in the Quebec separatist movements? Or should we send the Marines into Latin America and try to overthrow unfriendly strong men?
Seems like experiences such as Vietnam, Somolia(sp?), Lebanon, et. al. have not soured our gun-slinger factions from seeking out more follies for our stretched thin troops to engage in!
