For one thing, if it ain't part of the USA, I got no truck with it. For another example, the Middle East has been butchering each other for over
2,000 years...What makes politicians think that that "the spread of Democracy" is going to make any difference (other than make it worse)? Besides,
America is going to be a big enough handful as it is before I can pay much more than needed attention to the rest of the world.
But if it comes down to a nuclear war of some kind...Any nation that uses nukes on any other nation does represent a valid threat to the
US. I would try diplomacy first (with a professional diplomat...I'm too forthright to speak on my own to a national leader/ruler).
Unlike one of our previous Presidents, I was in the US military...I have some idea of what our military is like & what it's capable of. I
can promise that anyone who tries to use nukes enough to even lay waste to large tracts of land is going to regret it: Even if another nation
merely "tests" nukes & destroys a lot of land, that's a threat to world ecology, therefore it's also a threat to the USA. It doesn't
have to be use of "nukes" that would get my attention; Widespread use of chemical or biological agents would also be treated as nukes, as far
as effecting the world ecology goes.
On a related note, I already gave my opinion in paragraph 3 (first post) about the effects of industrial pollution on the ecology...
