We should post an embargo on countries that violate women and human rights. If we do not then it will be saying that its okay to use medieval principals on our fellow kin. No matter if they are 10 miles away or 5000 miles away.

Con

We need our powerful and continuing nationalism, so those countries where it just plain sucks to live serve as an excellent example of why it's so great to live here.
We need them around so we can quietly circumvent human rights here at home while the public is outraged at the bloody excesses perpetrated elsewhere.
We need their evils as a common enemy to rally against.
They justify our military. They could push into our turf and terrorize our citizens, and we can't have that.
They provide a reason for us to treat women differently than men. (You know what they'd do to our women, had they the chance.)
Our mass media has stories to sell about how bad they are, as long as they suck.
They could be so bad as to try to sneak peeps in, so we need to be on watch for them. That will provide excellent practice for our intelligence services in case a real threat comes along.
We are a nation under God. Those godless heathens are Not Us.
The unrest generated by those other countries feeds our companies, which brings money home.
(I actually don't have anything union-related here, sorry.)
Their propaganda is a;ways good for a laugh.
We need to be protected from those people, so the police need more power.
Our leadership knows who's best for the job of dealing with those countries, let them handle it.
It's understandable that elections may be tampered with by their agents, better have someone with a close eye on it.

tl;dr They justify us. Best to prop them up a bit.

look here man i agree women should not get beaten up or abused because everyone is equal but i dont think that it is in the us's best interest to just stop trading with a country that does that such as china. China has thee second largest economy in the world and if we give that up we can start another war.
