I'm trying to point out here, that every country is allowed to defend itself if necessary, and no country should start a war for other reasons then defending themselves or others.
If he meant: 'The US should only go to war when US interests are at stake', then he should have said so.
Quit nitpicking, not everyone can convey their meaning as eloquently as others. I think it was pretty clear what he meant, especially after he gave examples of wars the US became involved in.

No, I just said that the US didn't start that war. So the US joint in out of US interests, the war wasn't started out of US interests.
I never claimed the US to be a charity organisation, that's what you made out of it.
He never claimed it was.

You know what? Nevermind RnderSafe. I'm not arguing with you over what someone else meant, that's a waste of perfectly good bandwidth....

So let's stop the off-topic chit chat and get back on topic;
I think every country is allowed to defend itself if necessary, that side of a war is never pointless, and no country should start a war for other reasons than defending themselves or others, because nothing would justify the death of soldiers on the side of the agressor.

I said defend, that applies wether a country is invaded, or 'just' attacked. So they are both valid reasons to go to war.

The harder question is: Can you attack someone becouse you think he's going to attack you? Or even if you think he might attack you?

Mostly likely you wont attack him,because politically you'd look like the bad guy, unless you know he was planning to attack you.

You'll need convincing proof that he was going to attack you, if you want to get out on top politically.
