We are always the boy scouts helping the oppressed and it doesn't seem to work out.  One good one - WWII and since then we are trying to recapture our past glory.  Korea, Iraq, Libya.  Will we ever learn?  Obama didn't seem the militant type but power corrupts absolutely.  Can anyone predict the outcome of this one?
