That's a selfish, nationalistic point of view. How many times do you have to hear Bono or whoever say that this generation will be remembered for the internet and for letting what's happening in Africa happen before you realize that it doens't matter if it's 'our' problem or not. Horrid amounts of people over there are dying day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, and to let that happen and think we don't need to do anything about it is just wrong.

And there is evidence that we had Osama cornered and tried to have Afghans capture him instead, resulting in him getting away.

It's not selfish to acknowledge that America is our top priority. We have our own economy to worry about, our own poverty, our own health care, our own safety. Africa would be a great thing, but it would take a lot of icing on the cake in order to pursue it.

True plus we have our wars and "spreading democracy" to worry about.

I'm thinking of a word and it starts with an 'H'.
