"Americans would "pay any price, bear any burden" in their ongoing defense of liberty and human rights "at home and around the world."*
* Except in most of Africa, most of South America, most of the Middle East, Africa, China, North Korea, Cuba, etc, - i.e. wherever skin color is a little off-white.
The US has ignored the deaths of millions of people in the above-listed areas, but has spent trillions on failed nation-building in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bumbling, blatant hypocrisy of the US protection of "human rights" should be more than enough to make a thinking person consider the principle not interfering in the affairs of other, sovereign countries unless that country poses a direct threat to the US homeland.
