The United States has the moral obligation to take an active role in global
affairs, the price we pay for being the world's most powerful nation. We tried an isolationist policy after World War I in the 1920s and '30s ,and the world was quickly drawn into the tragic quagmire of World War II. Leaders such as Hitler, Mussolini and Japanese Prime Minister Hideki Tojo popped up throughout the world.
I have always believed it's much smarter to help put out the fire in the neighborhood, rather than wait for it to reach your house.
