The single biggest problem is that African societies are still stuck in the tribal stage. That is a very primitive way to exist, and it doesn't appear as if this is changing in any of the countries there. Their situation is rather hopeless without outside help. The best chance they had to progress was under colonialism.

Fuzz.. Unfortunately the Constitution does not and can not define world politics and our relative positions for all times. Foreign policy and involvement was a dicey proposition even for our founders. They had to bob and weave just like we are doing today. And in today's world for a country of our stature in the world it is impossible to fold our arms and stand back and say this isn't my business.

right.. Got it. Essentially we are on the same page. This is a phenomenon like countless others on this beautiful planet of ours, that we just simply don't know much about. However that does not stop the snake oil salesman on the Left Side of reality to make a buck on it at our expense.

Obama pulling our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan did not seem to soften the Jihadists hearth towards Uncle Sam one bit. At the very least it should have been worth clemency to one of the Americans they behadead. Just to send us a a message that we are on the right course. Usual Ron Paul nonsense.

dh.. Total nonsense. Life on Earth will not end by us burning to death because of GW. It is more likely that we will freeze to death.
