I don't approve of the US fighting wars to protect oil markets. That's utter bull****. Using technology to reduce our need is the way to go first, on that score. Had we spent the trillion we spent on Iraq on energy technology here at home, we'd have come out ten times better. The US fighting wars for corporate interests is criminal. But when it comes to stopping atrocities, I think we owe it to the concept of civilization to get involved. Every country has that same responsibility if they wish to be counted among the civilized.
