Now doesn't that just give you the most wonderful, fuzzy feeling feeling inside? Knowing that hey, while your country may be completely sold out and belong to someone else (along with $500,000,000 of our lovely monopoly money annually), that you're helping to further 'peace' and 'justice' and 'freedom' with your tax money?
And...that you're furthering the broader goals of all humanity.
And...that force will only be exerted in the most trying of circumstances- or, as they put it, in the 'common interest'. (Now, I wonder, just what is the 'common interest?' Would exertion of force be justified if they were to lose $500 million annually?)
Sometimes I just have to wonder what in the world some people were thinking.
