Keeping our nose clean and out of international issues and isolationism is the proverbial ostrich sticking it's head in the sand. It's FUCKING STUPID.

What's the quote? People who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Not saying we should be AS involved as we are on the world stage, but going isolationist only gets us back stabbed down the road.
And our involvement in international issues (SA, Israel) got us 9/11. Why cant we just protect our borders to prevent pearl harbors and get out of Eurasia?
