Paul if he really really wanted to protect Americian interest then do something about our southern border. Put a fence or troops or mine fields along the border. More than just Mexicans are coming into our country through that area. How about fixing that before helping Libya or any other country.

Hi trout,

What I liked about the President's speech was that he took up squarely the issue of being the world's police. He said that of course we can't respond to each and every humanitarian crisis. But, he said, that isn't a reason to respond to none of them. I think "picking and choosing" is inevitable. However, to do none because you can't do all makes little sense for a Country that see itself as a beacon of freedom, justice, and decency.

You're right that we can't afford getting caught up in endless engagements all over the world. But sometimes history comes calling. The President handled it as best he could by bringing in allies/UN and passing it on after our technical strikes.

We are not the world's keeper. Why Libya, why not Yemen, or Syria, or allthe other places that the governments are killing their own people. This has been going on way before we became a country. I know it is wrong but we do not need to get in other peoples business unless it directly effects us. Let them work out their own problems. Remember Castro we supported him and bam look what he has done for 50 years. What is the UN used for anyway. I thought they were the world body that handle world problems like this. So far they just talk about things and take our money. Lets see if Europe or Russia steps in and helps these troubled countries for a change. Lets use our resources to help and protect the USA first and then think about what we can go for others.

Hi FORUM,

At the heart of the President's speech last night was a noble idea. The idea as I understood it is that our great Nation is a light for freedom and that American values demand that we support those who seek to be free and respond to repression and violence toward the innocent. The President said that the fact that America cannot respond to every situation of repression doesn't mean it should respond to none. He spoke of stopping a genocide in Libya that would have been the equivalent of the killing of every man, woman and child in the city of Charlotte.

Regardless of whether or not you voted for our President or disagree with his other views, do you share this understanding of America's role and witness in the world?
