spendi, You confuse America's intent and actions because of what Bush did during his eight years in office. Most Americans do not support the manifest destiny of the world. We, instead, promote equality for all humans, and try to help those who attempt to help themselves. As the superpower of this planet, our engagement with foreign countries will differ dramatically from the Bush era. We will talk to both our allies and our enemy to try to work towards peace for all.
Shocking for you, I'm sure.
