Other countries do expect us to be the world's police force; it isn't always something the US government wants of its own accord or by whim. Sure, we've made mistakes but we're usually defending someone because they need protection and look to the US specifically for that. It's not our top priority in terms of what we would prefer to do, but it is something our leaders feel is our duty to uphold.

Oops, this is a blog, so no more threadjacking. Sorry, Annabel!
