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
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.
