We shouldn't be involved in the worlds affairs as we are. The powers that be and crap UN use us as a police force for the world so you and I agree somewhat I believe. I would not have stated it as you did but I think I can side with your premise.

We will and should always protect our citizens abroad and our countries best interests, which includes protecting our allies. But our military is often used for politic gains instead.
This. We do way too much meddling in foreign affairs. That's where most of the American resentment abroad comes from. We played a large role in creating the clusterfuck that is currently the Middle East. Our constant defense of Israel and the support of dictators that will keep that oil flowing being the primary issues.
