"Maybe I'm missing something here. I mean, we're going to have kind of a nation-building corps from America? Absolutely not. It needs to be in our vital interest, the mission needs to be clear, and the exit strategy obvious.

Bush chiding Al Gore for the Clinton administration's actions in Somalia, 2000. [via andrewducker ]
