American University attack in Kabul: Should the US government be doing more to protect our universities overseas?

  • Yes,who would ever go there? Kabul hasn't been safe since 1978.

    American Universities such as the one in Kabul, should be receiving adequate and full protection from the U.S. government regardless of how far their geographical location is. While people with these motivations are admirable I can't help but thinking why, put yourself in these predicaments by going to these countries where as a Westerner you are in clear danger?

  • Yes, increased security is a necessity.

    The US must take strong precautions to protect students and employees at overseas universities. The threat of terrorism is rising and we can no longer simply hope for the best. Many US citizens work and study overseas and their safety must be a significant concern for our government. Terrorism is a sad reality that isn't going away.

  • Simply because a university is overseas does not negate the fact that the US government should not be using its resources to fully protect them.

    American Universities such as the one in Kabul, should be receiving adequate and full protection from the U.S. government regardless of how far their geographical location is. Simply stated, if we are unable to defend an extension of our country somewhere else in the world, we shouldn't have that institution established there until we can guarantee the safety of all the people present there.

  • We simply don't have the capability

    American citizens visit and live all around the world, and we simply don't have the ability to protect them all. We can punish groups after the fact when they attack our people, but it's foolish to think that we can somehow keep everybody safe all the time, no matter where they are.
