I guess you could say I'm isolationist. I'd rather the US was self-sufficient and kept to itself. A "Prime Directive" of sorts, leave everyone the heck alone. But, of course, we rely on other countries for all of our luxeries and oil. So my viewpoint is rather futile.

Africa is probably worse than Iraq, and it's the same deal. The stuff that goes down over there will not stop. The moment we leave, the problem will resume. I'd rather not waste resources and lives in a futile attempt.
