Yes, our isolationist policies from the rest of the world, our current leadership's notion that our military might means that we are always right and can we can simply enforce our will upon others without allies is short sighted and does not reflect the realities of the modern world. Isolationism may have been appropriate in the 1700's when world communities were not interdependent, but not today. We and other country’s are co-dependent on critical supply lines for resources, production and technologies. We must protect our interests and those of allied nations. It is in our interest to work with allied nations to equitably prevent expansionism of other countries to preferentially exert their influence and take advantage of their neighbors. Turkey has shown itself to be a bad actor in this regard and I feel that their alliance and dependence upon the Russians disrupts the purpose of NATO to the point that they should be removed from NATO altogether. Given that the Libyan’s still see the United States as a fair arbiter of just resolutions, it is an opportunity for the US to re-engage with the U.N. and try to restore some of the faith that the world once had in us. We should be responsible partners in the U.N. and contribute as is warranted and necessary. This would be an important step toward re-engaging the world community in addressing the looming impactful consequences of having ignored the worsening Climate Crisis- and help set the stage for a new US leadership (please!) to tackle the requisite world commitments necessary to forestall and stop the pending global disruptions which will occur otherwise.
