Whoppers aren't only served in Burger King

Karl Rove is serving up a few of his own via the Sunday talk show circuit:
Well, we were not involved in the world before 9/11, and look what happened.
Let's see...In order to believe that, one must be willing to completely ignore any mention of the US invasion of Iraq in 1991 along with subsequent bombing raids and sanctions during the next dozen years; the US air war in the Balkans; the US military's involvement in Somalia around 1993; air strikes in Afghanistan in the late 1990s. That's not even getting in to the various and sundry ways that the US involved itself into the internal affairs of numerous nations like Russia and Poland (among others), imposing its version of "free trade" with disastrous consequences for the poor and middle classes in affected countries. Nor does that even begin to mention the continued expansion and consolidation of its military bases around the globe, or the continued propagation of torture techniques through the SOA/WHINSEC.

If anything, the US was too involved in the world.
