"Yes, but only in support of the movement to change the current corrupt regime"???

Are you kidding? Look at our track record in that department. "Change" is NOT equal to "improvement". It may be argued that replacing a square wheel with a triangular one is NOT an improvement, even if there is ONE LESS BUMP!

If we're the only ones in the world to care about this, we're crazy to do so. If the rest of the world cares about this, let them do something on their own for a change. If we continue as the world's policeman, why would any other country spend their blood and treasure?
