| You seem kind of interventionist. Why do you think 
|we should intervene in other countries internal political 
|struggles? I think our leaders in this country could take a 
|lesson in the saying "Back to the future", we need to 
|rediscover some of our past history in order to get on with 
|the future. The founding fathers would role over in there 
|graves if they knew what kind of country were turning out to 
|be. Like I said, we need to be an example for the world, by 
|being interventionist were turning out just to be another 
|country whose trying to run the world. We want change in 
|these countries, but it has to be at there speed not ours. 
|Also, don't you believe the European democracies could do a 
|lot more to further the message of freedom and democracy. It 
|seems we have lost our way a little bit, and we no longer 
|follow a lot of the truth and ideas this country was founded 
|on. Daniel

|Do we leave them alone? Do we deal with the government

|our tendency has been do turn and look the other way.
|I'm not sure it's always the right thing to do. Some
|countries are too big to do anything about, like China.
|I see our current refocus on world affairs being driven
|by the current world threat -- that of potential use
|of weapons of mass destruction against western civilian 
|populations. This is so dangerous that any tendency towards 
|isolationism has to be put aside, literally under the threat 
|of death. Apart from hopefully rare situations like this, I'd 
|agree that we don't meddle in other countries governments, but 
|only provide general assistance, helping the countries improve 
|to the point where there will be a natural political evolution 
|from within.
