If it is capable of satisfying 51% or more of the criticism directed at America by all of its detractors, you win.
As for limiting the scope to one field, such as economics or military, it is only fair to point out that doing so ignores the significant fact that satisfying complaints in one area often generates them in another. Thus a policy limited to one field could not be classified as logical and coherent.
If you are to address the problem in a manner suited to my challenge, you must do so under the same conditions the people of America are expected to address them: comprehensively.
Attempting to do this will hopefully demonstrate why no one in human history has been able to accomplish it to date. Should you be the first, I might be able to hook you up with a very nice job. But only if you succeed.

- Nope, not my food nor my citizens. But that food was being delivered by means of US tax dollar, and I don't want to see food going to starving people in the hands of ruthless warloads, maybe you do? www.globalsecurity.org... "The operation was successful in stopping the famine and saving an estimated 200,000 lives, as well as de-escalating the high-intensity civil war into low-level, local skirmishes."
- I suppose if South Korea didn't want our help they would ask for our 30,000 troops to back off from the border and leave the country. Think they'd ask for that with a whack-job like Kim bordering them?
- Whether these weapons were supplied by us while he was in "compliance" (notice that word in quotations, a word that really hasn't been assosiated with Saddam and UN sanctions) with the CIA or by eskimos, part of his terms of surrender were to get rid of those weapons, and guess what? He never did.
It wasn't that Clinton didn't have the balls to do the right thing, it's that his balls were in someone's hand other than his wife's.
- Take a wild guess on how long those hostages were in Iranian terrorist hands, guess how many times Carter unsuccesful tried to "plea" with the Iranians to let them go, and guess on who's inaguration day they were released? If the leaders of the country are applauding the actions, you don't think it necessary to change their attitudes?
- UN support? How long do we need to wait for that to come through? Plus I believe the UN has already proclaimed human rights violations in Columbia and has spent military aid on the region.

I guess the challenge was not undertaken? Just wondering. Maybe because of the shift to politics at ats it was lost in the shuffle.
