What really frustrated me was the response to the use of Syrian Chemical weapons. For YEARS people in the rest of the world have been biatching about the US going it alone, deciding it was the world cop, etc. (and to be fair, I do agree with them to some extent.)

I'm sure the republicans will start complain we aren't "leading" anymore. I guess we will just have to spend all that sweet tax money here at home.
