"It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower"The president of the United States wonders, possibly is not sure, whether the United States "likes" being the "dominant military superpower." He appears not to know whether "we" like it, or not.
Uh, Barack? Where on earth have you been? Of course "we" fucking like it! Hell, "we" have been working on it -- in continuity -- for decades, if not since prior the opening days of the United States as a nation, and its incipient Drang nach Westen.
So, fuck yeah, "we" like it, dumb ass. Sure as hell beats getting genocided, or having bombs falling on your head.
Sucks to be not "we."
