No longer intervening in squalid lesser nation is the focus of the Exceptional Nation but a return to the Cold War.

Besides, there isn't much profit in having our guys humping the boonies drawing fire from a guy with an AK. Much more profit in building more boondoggles like Zumwalt class destroyers and LCSs. iirc, the Gerald Ford cost twice as much as a Nimitz class carrier. Churn up enough fear of the Russkies and Chinese and maybe we can hand Newport News twice the cost of the Ford for the next one.
