You'll get no argument from me on that statement, but the problem goes much farther back then the current administration...much, much farther back. Frankly, I'm tired of the US trying to run everyone's affairs and have been tired of it for quite a long while. In fact, I've almost begun to lean towards an isolationist point of view.

Also got this movie below out of my local library:

http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0912590/

Stopped watching the DVD after about a half hour as simply couldn't deal with what was done to that poor young girl by those animals...and all for money? May they rot in Hades. At first I thought the film was some sort of black comedy until finally realizing what was being depicted had actually occurred in Brazil.

Moving back on topic, here are a few more links for acronyms utilized by the US armed forces:
