honestly it is funny you should say that.
im not for the iraq bullshit, but where amerca offers help, it gets spit on.
countries that usually ask or beg for help, the u.s.a. tries to offer assistance, look at vietnam for example.
at the very beginning, they cried for help, but when the u,s,a, came in, they flipped and begged for us to leave. in truth, this is where you pick your battles wisely, and i wish that some things the u.s. wouldn't bother with.
it is better to let one civilization duke it out on its own rather to have other civilizations dragged into the fight.
things like the jews in gemany or the africans in rwanda, those are and were times america was needed.
