Since we’re talking about other nations

…why don’t we see what a Founding Father thought about caring what other nations think of America?

“It is very imprudent to deprive America of any of her privileges. If her commerce and friendship are of any importance to you, they are to be had on no other terms than leaving her in the full enjoyment of her rights.” —Benjamin Franklin

This includes the right to defend our national security, at home, and abroad, without interference, collaboration, or permission from any other nation.
