Somalia continues to be wracked by militia violence and a fragile (at best) government, while the Sahel in West Africa has experienced no less than 20 government coups since 2010.

The US needs to pursue neutralist foreign policy. even more the country has to adopt a neutralist ethos.
We will do less and then someone will get a bright idea and we will do more again.
