"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy." -Alexander Tytler
I say we stay the hell out of it, let them kill each other off and let the rest of the world deal with countries who are willing to gas and kill their own countrymen. Prior to the first gulf war it was proven that Saddam had gassed the Kurds and the US got shit on by everyone for wanting to stomp that fucker and his psycho kids out of existence. Oh, I know we went in to "save" that pissant little country and all the other douche towel heads who hate the US, but it's high time we tell them to fuck off, fight our own wars and leave us alone.

This sort of thing is supposed to be the U.N.'s responsibility. We've been policing the world for far too long and it hasn't earned us any fans, only global resentment. We throw away trillions of dollars to help people that in most cases don't even want our help, when those trillions could help people at home--you know, the people who actually pay the taxes, the taxes that are supposed to be used to help them.
