Is the Cost of Empire Worth It

"Now that evidence of WMD and proof of collaboration between Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden have failed to materialize, the administration is left with liberation for putting American lives at risk. My question: There are a lot bad guys in the world. Are we obligated to eliminate them all for the sake of democracy? "...

'The ultimate test of a moral society,' Bonhoeffer once said, 'is the kind of world it leaves to its children.' It’s amazing to me that Congress can keep spending more and more while sending bigger and bigger bills to our children. The cost of Empire is simply staggering, and we have apparently only just begun."

The question is valid and so few (other than liberals that do so for the wrong reasons) voice it.
