The US doesn't protect anyone. If the US were actually interested in 
defense, rather than empire, the military bases overseas would be 
closed, rather than manned in 170 countries, of which, what, 2 
are "at war" with the US?

The "rendering massive aid" is also misconstrued. It has nothing to do 
with the government of the US, it has to do with the last dregs of 
what was a vigorous economy.

While the US government redirects some of its blood-money taxes 
to "aid" in quantities of "$millions", the individual citizens of the 
US donate "$Billions" to various charitable efforts around the world.

By simple scale, the US government is ineffectual in its 
supposedly "positive" efforts. The destruction and death is many, 
many times greater by government action than its paltry "aid", and 
that "aid" always is paid not to individuals or voluntary 
organizations, that "aid" is given to whatever government proports to 
be the lawful one in that geographic area. So the "aid" actually 
lines the pockets of petty dictators, rather than 
feeding/housing/nursing anyone.

If you want to have a positive effect, the first thing to do is get 
government out of the way. Might does not make right.
