He sounds as if that is a bad thing. We have been terrorizing the world since the iron curtain fell and stopped supporting the people in our own country not long after.
We need the money spent at home not trying to force some other country to hand over all their goodies.

Here he is again trying to defend the miserable decisions of Colin Powell and himself with respect to Iraq.
The Bush administration didn’t make decisions in fear and anger after 911, their plan of action for the so called “New American Century” had been formulated in the early 90s. They were simply taking advantage of the general public’s fear and anger.
