John Kerry's - "Global Test"

In the debate Thursday Senator Kerry said that America should meet a "Global Test" before taking pre-emptive actions to defend our nation. Well here it is.
Global Test for Pre-emptive Military Action by the U.S.
  1. Is the U.S. President a Republican?
  2. Could this action possibly stabilize oil production?
  3. Are France and Germany supplying the intended target with weapons or advice?
  4. Would any small time thugocracy with a seat on the Security Council feel threatened?
  5. Are family members of high ranking U.N. bureaucrats benefiting financially from the status quo?
  6. Is this action likely to enhance America’s power in the world?
  7. Would this action further the goals of free market/free trade advocates?8. Would this action make the U.N. look weak and inconsistent?
  8. Would this action divide the countries of the European Union?
  9. Would this action be seen as offensive to a world religion (other than Christianity and Judaism)?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then America should let France or the UN deal with it.

Thanks to the "Casualty of Capitalism" BLOG for this one.
