Diplomacy is critical. wars are not inevitible. Those who seek watrrs as the only solutions are mainly insane abusers, bent on showing personal power and might. Those who seek resolutions through peacefulmeasures first and to be complimented.

It is no obsession. The reality is that the US has interests around the globe to protect. And, the US, thankfully, defends our freedoms.

you mean America's "leaders"? I think *most* Americans, if they care at all, simply want to get their sons (and a few daughters) back to something nearer to home, in something like one healthy piece.

because we are the most powerful country. Might as well take advantage of it. (hint: we should be helping, not killing iraqis.)

The people in power are obsessed because they are obsessed by the possibility of getting more power. The common people are obsessed with fear at this point. They understand that we have bit off a lot more than we can chew.

Because people don't like to look at the evils going on in their own back yard because that is "too close" to home so they focus on what is happening elsewhere in the world...
