    if we are going to measure the net good/bad that individual countries in the world have on all of the other countries of the world, then i personally think that the US still comes out way in the positive

    but, that all depends on what one considers to be good/bad

    •  It's not complicated. We're supporting tyrants. (2+ / 0-)

      It's evil.

      It's simple.

      Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

          But, that's not surprising.

          •  Here's a response for you. (0+ / 0-)

            Who would replace these "dictators" you accuse us of supporting. Ask people in Somalia if they would be happy with a dictator who could stop the anarchy?

            We nave national interests which demand that we support different groups in their internal struggles. The Obama administration has done a great deal to move our foreign policy in a more positive direction.

            Here's my take on it - the revolution will not be blogged, it has to be slogged. - Deoliver47

              They're most likely to find them in the US, not at home, as we've just seen.

            in the last 3 weeks.  Programming software.  I am commenting here while waiting for software to build while testing it.  So, I have time for quick comments.  I don't have time to get into the details about whether the US is a force of good or bad in the world.

        favor  an interventionist foreign policy?  As long as we intervening on the side you agree with?  Or do you want the U.S. to remain neutral and continue to "do business" with which ever group s in power.  There are problems with both positions.
