Should the United States intervene in the Ukraine Crisis militarily?
Debate Rounds (4)
First of all, we should know Putin's intentions. According to BBC News, Putin wants Russia to be like the Cold War Era when Russia was militarily and technologically strong. Should NATO or the US intervene militarily, Putin will use it as an excuse to put more Russian boots on Ukrainian soil and more weapon support. Similar events have taken place before. In the war between China and Japan in the late 1800s, Japan employed her troops because the Chinese military entered the Korean Peninsula. We can see this is true because Russia seems to deny everything, from the boots on the ground to the downing of MH 17 by the rebels.
Also, there are alternative ways to stop Putin. The US has recently found millions of barrels of oil in her territory. The Wall Street Journal said in its article in March of 2014 that one of the weapons that the US has is its energy supply. The United States could export its oil to her allies to end energy dependency on Russia. NATO and the US is also acting diplomatically, holding a summit.
Finally, the US is not being attacked by Russia militarily. Why must the US act militarily when it is not being affected militarily? This would only escalate tensions and would do Ukraine no good. In the fight against ISIS, the United States is affected militarily and it has already executed two American citizens, In this case, the US has a right to defend her people by attacking ISIS. Russia HAS NOT threatened an innocent US citizen and therefore the US has no right to attack Russia.
I will be leaving this debate because I can't write about why USA should be in Russia since there is no logical reason. However check out http://antiwar.com... it has a lot of good articles. Reading either American or Russian press on the matter will be Biased propaganda (British articles included). on the ISIS issue. America should have never been involved with the middle east. They should have never armed and funded the group that ended up turning into ISIS. So USA has kinda hurt asked for it in a way. ISIS also cannot invade US, that is a common scare tactic which helps get the population to want a war. ISIS is a bunch of local extremists who do not have anything more than a lot of guns. They would never EVER get to usa thinking so is just plain senseless.
Thank you and I apologize again. I wish you good luck.
