The news is full these days about troubles in other countries--Syria, Egypt and so on. One question always seems to be, what should the U.S. do to help? Most of the time, the wisest answer might be--nothing.
I don't mean to sound like some 1930s isolationist who closed his eyes while Adolf Hitler conquered Europe, but the issues in today's trouble spots seem domestic; they're trying to straighten out their own houses, not move into anyone else's.
If a little money can help, fine. Or a little advice, well, sure, though it's hard to imagine anyone taking it. But sending our military men and women to right someone else's alleged wrong--let's just not.
If it's clear that someone else means us harm then, of course, we act. But otherwise, let's just wish them a peaceful summer and walk on by.
