Pull Up a Chair – Thomas Friedman OpEd

I saw this on Doc Searl’s weblog and as bad as I hate to say it, it makes a lot of sense. I don’t want to see the US turning into the world’s police force but we have and it looks like we are going to have to accept that role whether we like it or not. The only thing that really worries me about this is if we do as Thomas Friedman proposes then we are going to hear the term “empire builder” thrown at us from every camp that is looking to paint us in a negative light. Of course if we do nothing then we will be tagged as isolationists and bullies that throw our weight around and then leave without solving any problems.
