Noblesse Oblige

Of course we had to go into Lybia, young man! Have you no human compassion? What choice did we have, with civilian lives at stake? Mere consistency demanded so! Did we not rush headlong into Tian'anmen square? Did we not rescue Tibet? Did we not sanction and isolate China? Consistency, boy, and compassion, and Democracy, and, why, civilization! It is the white man's burden, after all!
Conditions apply: recipient of military help must have oil or other strategic interest; balance of forces must be extremely favorable, conflict must lead to inventory cycling and profits increase for miltary industrial complex.
