THe huge amounts of money wasted in Africa and Asia could be better utilized investing in our southern neighbors. I would rather see items made in our hemisphere, then in China or Vietnam. IF we had spent the money wasted in Afghanistan on building up MExico and fighting the drug lords down there, we would have a viable trading partner with a growing prosperous economy. LEss illegal migration would happen as their homeland would have a viable economy.
I hear so much of why we cannot do this. But never why this makes so much sense.
