Do I have to explain that great powers don't go to war for moral reasons? Really? Are you guys that naive or brainwashed by your own propaganda?
(There are some very few exceptions, but look at the long, long, long list of US interventions since WW2 and tell me those were done to protect others. Any time a war is drummed up, the people are told it's for good reasons. Support jihadists in toppling Gadaffi? He's the new Hitler and kills his own people, we must give these people a chance at democracy, knowing full well this will not bring the people of Lybia democracy! Supporting jihadists to topple Assad? Same thing. You'll also notice that the propaganda techniques are often the same.
Check this and apply it to pretty much any war fought by any nation and the media blitz accompanying it:
Ten Commandments of Propaganda (by Arthur Ponsonby):
1. We do not want war.
2. The opposite party alone is guilty of war.
3. The enemy is the face of the devil.
4. We defend a noble cause, not our own interest.
5. The enemy systematically commits cruelties; our mishaps are involuntary.
6. The enemy uses forbidden weapons.
7. We suffer small losses, those of the enemy are enormous.
8. Artists and intellectuals back our cause.
9. Our cause is sacred. "The ages-old 'God bless America' is playing once more."
10. All who doubt our propaganda, are traitors."
In fact, this comic is a nice illustration of point 10 and how the people who buy into the official narrative will help enforce the acceptance of the propaganda.

Oh no, I was born after the Cold War ended, like 80+% of people on this website! Horrible! And yeah, I'm from Europe. I fail to see your point in either case, you seem to be attacking me (though I don't know how it is an attack on me personally to refer to my age and the continent I live on) and not my argument.

Personally, if I were in charge of our foreign policy I'd just hang you all out to dry. Let Russia reclaim the old Soviet Bloc and then some; I'd laugh at whatever pathetic defense you tried to mount against them. Let your economies crash trying to match the amount of funding and manpower that America has dumped into the bottomless pit of your ungrateful little countries, that money would be much better spent in America anyways. Let Japan and China go to war over some shitty rocks in the sea, they can go fuck themselves as far as I am concerned. Let Africa and the Middle East have total fucking anarchy and starvation as far as the eye can see; that aid money and troop support could be used far better at home.

In that case, I'd like to put you in charge of the US so you stop meddling everywhere. You might be disappointed that the world won't end just because the US stops lording over everyone. As to Germany winning WW1 without US intervention - unlikely, but possible I suppose. Wouldn't be a great disaster though, it's not like Germany was "evil" or anything, just another empire. WW2 - yeah, no chance Germany would have won. And our economies here in Europe don't depend on US funding, I don't know where you got this idea.
It's kinda sad that you swallowed the idea of the "indispensable nation" so readily. In any case, I'm out of this conversation. Hopefully someone who focuses on the US itself instead of trying to dominate globally will actually gain power in your country, that's one point I agree with you on - the US people would benefit greatly if the immense resources of the United States were actually used domestically. Win-win IMO.
