The world’s policeman

I’ve been wondering recently how successful we can be at shaping world events. The invasion of Iraq has sent a message of our willingness to act, but there have obviously been many negative side effects. In other situations, we do very little and so many people suffer: Darfur and Zimbabwe. I have been reading articles about Robert Mugabe’s political repressions in Zimbabwe for close to a decade. The most recent is here. So at the end of the day, the question is: how much can and should we do to support those people around the wold struggling to improve their lives?
