With utmost respect to "the sexiest man alive", I disagree, in part, with his mind-our-own-business conclusion. International relations are played between sovereign nations and national interests drive them. We often support "enemies of our enemies" which plays into the hands of the isolationists, people who support free people and anti-Americans, all. It's easy to say to "keep our nose out of it" in such cases. At the same time, we send help into every national disaster because we are just that way. We are outraged that a teen-aged girl is shot by Islamists when travelling to school. We've lost all opportunity to play in whatever arises from the ashes of Syria as we have done in Libya and Egypt. Is this in our interest?
