The US is the world cop because other people let it be that. America does not want to be a world cop, but is because trouble eventually comes to it because of the American dream ideal (whether real or not). But it would not be the case if people stood up for themselves and helped themselves. I agree with +ahmed younis
that a lot of the problems of the Muslim world is because Muslims do not speak out and stop extremism in any way. They just look and shut up. Look how far the rhetoric of Al-Qaeda has set back the Muslims? The west distrusts Muslims so much because of that extremist agenda. Yet it only represents a tiny tiny fraction of the Muslims.
It is not about the US. It is about the Muslim world taking care of its own. Why isn't Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the other Oil gultted countries not putting substantial effort in this? Why must it be the US that saves Somalia.
Having said that and lived in the US now for over 40 years, I have to tell you that the American people as a whole are the most generous when it comes to natural and man-made disasters. And I am sure they are stepping up to help, including the Muslims in them.
