Define "free Eritrea". The biggest flaw of US foreign policy is that although a democracy, most US citicens have no clue what their troops are doing in foreign countries (combating terrorism my ass, as long as Teheran and Riad are not smoking ruins, noone will believe that stupidity and it gives them negative legitimacy points).

The majority of people on this site are American. Sorry, US-American. Not only that, but the US plays a huge role in pretty much everything worldwide. Culture, politics, etc. Of course the US is gonna be talked about more than much smaller (in terms of population, land area, and economy) European countries. Cata should accept that and move on.

Eritrea should be conquered and annexed by the Saudis across the stream. Genocide the savage natives and settle the population with Allah's chosen Arabs.

^^+1 That would be a huge improvement. Italian Eritrea was a lot better than modern Eritrea.

The Bosnians and Croats begged the US for support during the breakup of Yugoslavia. Kosovo begged the US for help during the Kosovo War.

The mujaheddin in the Soviet-Afghan war wanted American help.

Angela Merkel and many leaders of Europe visited Trump after the election, bent the knee and grovelled in the dirt begging Trump not to leave NATO or cut its funding.

For a time, most Venezuelans supported a US invasion in 2017. I don't know whether they still support it. Cuban exiles were staunch advocates of a US invasion of Cuba during the Cold War.

After the First Gulf War, the Kurds and Shia Arabs revolted against Saddam Hussien believing they had American backing. H.W. hesitated and the moment to overthrow Saddam was lost. Shias and Kurds, resented America for 12 years for not bombing Iraq in 1991 until the 2003 invasion.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_uprisings_in_Iraq

The Liberation of Iraq (2003) was supported by the vast majority of Iraqis (mostly Shia Arabs and Sunni Kurds). During the liberation of Baghdad, the people (a mixed between Shia and Sunni) were overjoyed by the US invasion and crowds tore down statues of Saddam Hussein, looted government buildings, and crowds gathered around our tanks in celebration.

The South Vietnamese and South Korean peoples during the cold war were fighting against war-mongering northern neighbors bent on illegal annexation and they asked the US for help. These regimes were dictatorships but the people did back US intervention. When America finally pulled out of South Vietnam, the people were literally clinging to American helicopters to escape the coming barbarism of North Vietnam.

And how could we forget the biggest examples. During both WW1 and WW2, Britian and France got down on their knees and begged the US to join the war. In WW1, the arrival of American troops halted the French Munity of 2017 which threatened to overthrow the French government in a revolution similar to the Russian revolution.

Countries with a large position of power typically push their sphere as influence as much as the can. Russia and China do the same thing, and many more countries in much more of a regional way.

Personally I want the U.S to decrease it's sphere of influence, with more of that foreign money going to strengthen the US's actual neighbors, attempting to fix areas they fucked up, (Libya, Iraq, etc.) as well as sending some of that money and aid to countries that actually need it.

But this is nothing new, if you are the most powerful nation, you do your best to exert influence.

The interesting thing is that countries are not people, they do not have interests. So whoose agenda is this sphere building exactly?

The US was never supposed to be a democracy. Anyone who thinks the US was "founded as a democracy" is a brainlet who can't conduct basic research or someone who was fooled by neoliberal academia and can't produce an original idea that wasn't unpacked and distorted for their soft mind by their kindergarten teacher.
