Hello, I am new to this, so I apologize if I get the debate format incorrectly.
Position, con.
I, personally, am against the United States influencing other countries. The United States has been meddling in other, foreign affairs from the 19th century and beyond, often causing wars, and the rise of corrupt governments.
These actions caused the deaths of countless innocent lives and sparked the rise of even more corrupt groups.

The United States has every right to interfere with foreign affairs. Today, around 80% of the United States' GDP is made up of services. Since the United States imports more than it does exports, interfering in foreign affairs is a way for it to protect its interests. In addition, the United States has among one of the strongest economies in the world. On a global stage, the United States must play a role, both to protect its economy and to act as a leader to other nations. In today's world, every country must play a role and it would be foolish to be isolated. One example of such country is North Korea. It is near impossible to avoid foreign affairs so of course the United States should be involved with foreign affairs. The real question is to what extent?
