political leadership wanted the prestige of being the Global Big Brother,
but then found out how expensive it was to be like that -- but by then it
was too late; other allied nations now look to you for support. Of course,
there are philosophies about interactivity between nations and the
responsibility of being a powerful nation, but hey, this is the fall-out of
such thinking. Anytime a country gets involved in some other country's
business, there are bound to be problems.
