Don't fight protracted insurgencies in distant countries, when you understand little of the language or culture, and there is a nationalist tendency in the population. Don't spend massive resources in countries with an imperial history that will only resent your presence in the long run, and that are very difficult to change, or perhaps not interested in democracy at all.
