The essence of US foreign policy is contained in the quote from Mr. Paine below. Most Americans believe that if all of the world's people were to be granted the same liberty and opportunities secured to us by own own institutions, that the threats to our own freedoms would be decreased. That simple reality is a grave threat to all who profit from subjugation and oppression of any portion of the world's populace, including some within our own borders. Whenever US interests are threatened by world events, we will act to secure our own tranquility. It is our view that the best way to ensure our own freedom is to offer it to all and to intervene when the oppression of one nation threatens the stability of our own interests or those of our allies.

So, in spite of all of the second guessing of America's motives in the current conflict, and the fallout of the international brinksmanship, diplomacy, blackmail or whatever you wish to call it, the US position will remain as stated above. If world events threaten our interests or stability, will we intervene? You can count on it. Will we rush to provide humanitarian aid if you are in crisis? Like no one else in the history of the earth. Will we put our own sons and daughters in harms way to defend you from oppression? If such an action is needed, we will take the point. Will America come to the aid of France, or anyone else, the next time they cry for assistance? Perhaps not eagerly, but we will come because that is who we are.

God bless America.
