I didn’t mean it in that way, but upon re-reading, I can see why you thought that. apologies for bad wording.
Not “play hero” as in rescue us. But somebody else to “play hero” to all the poor oppressed people that we are trying to “play hero” for. Afghanistan has gone way beyond the initial find Osama and the 9/11 masterminds and bring them to justice. Now it seems we are trying to protect the citizens there from the Taliban. We need to let go of our need to spread our way of thinking until we get our own house in order.
But it’s not realistic and I acknowledge that, its just wishful thinking.
