Didn't Huckabee say something to that effect during the 2008 debates with Ron Paul? Something like this... Even if the whole world wants us to end the wars, we won't do it because we promised to bring democracy to the world and darn it we'll keep on doing that.
To which Ron Paul said, (I paraphrase) it is the responsibility of the people through their representatives to correct the mistake and not perpetuate it.
So if the world says to make peace, trade freely, and talk to one another, i'd say...
ok, i'll budge.
Guess the trick is to figure out if you're stand by a river of truth or a stream of lies.
