Because we impose our will on the world politically, and back it up with military action. I don't know if anyone here is arguing for that point; I know I am not too fond of our foreign policy or methodology outside our own borders at times, but that's not what this thread is really about, is it? It's not about why we're "there" or what we're doing there, but about methods employed to extract human intelligence to protect ourselves and the alleged effects it does or does not have.
