You are taking on a responsibility YOU do not have.
You said when bad stuff happens in the world the question is always what is the United States going to do about it.
I hate to break it to you, but YOU ARE NOT the United States.
You are currently its President. Big Difference. Your concern is NOT the world. Your concern is the United States. At least it SHOULD be.
You are only allowed to do what powers are granted in the Constitution of the United States. If you want to take military action then you get congress to declare war. Otherwise there must be imminent attack for you to use the military.
ALSO it is HYPOCRITICAL to say you're concerned for kids in one place and not another. I've seen footage of a little girl in Iraq have her stomach blown out by US Forces. Now, which country claims moral high ground again?
