Inside the vacuum of a college classroom, or written in a term paper, this doctrine would look beautiful and rosy, with everyone winning in the end. However, the real world is not a classroom. It is not a term paper; people die in this world; nations are put at risk and people are exploited.
We are talking about dealing with leaders of countries who have been known to kill their own opposition. Who are willing to rape and pillage on their own streets out of rigid belief systems.

Unfortunately, Obama has forgotten, or never knew, that foreign policy is not charity policy.
