  • Evolving threats to america

    America is a superpower, there is no denying that. Our troops get sent to forign countries to help promote peace and stability, as well as back up our allies. If we continue to stay out of world affairs they will affect us here at home. Take Afghanistan, in 1996, most americans thought it wasn't our business to get involved. 5 years later, that business came to our shores. If we continue to stay out of world affairs, even when people ask for our help like Ukraine, we not only lose allies, but people rely less on us and we are not taken seriously.

  • Yes yes yes

    No one can help where they were born, so the idea that we should leave innocent civilians to be slaughtered or suffer because they were born somewhere is inhumane. However, for fiscal reasons, we shouldn't get involved in the small stuff.Dangerous, there are people in many places in the world living in freedom today because of U.S. military involvement, in Israel, Korea, Europe, and many other places. We would be wrong to abandon them. Second, we cannot isolate ourselves without endangering our own security. The world is a more dangerous place today and there is no one to fill in for us to stop those who would do harm. We would not want to live in a world in which an unscrupulous power such as China polices the seas. While we should avoid intervention unless absolutely necessary, the U.S. should maintain its ability -- and indicate its willingness -- to be involved in world affairs.

  • Yes, when necessary.

    There are times where I think that the US should just keep out of certain things. There are times when I think that the US only gets involved because they stand to gain or lose money. Some things however do warrant intervention, such as genocide or slavery or horrible crimes against a countries citizens.

  • Duh why not......

    Why not. There's people in ither countries who need our help...Maybe one day we will need there help, and if we don't rescue them in theremtime of need, then they won't rescue us and perhaps they will even make it worse, so to keep the peace among countries, we should interfere with foreign affairs!:)

  • Yes we should

    Thee us should get involved in foreign affairs be innocent people are dying in other countries and as a world power the us has the responsibility to protect these people. Furthermore the people living in countries with problems didn't choose to be born there and deserve the chances someone in the U.S. Would have.

  • Yes we should

    Yes we should get involved in foreign affairs. Why should we sit back while civilians are dying. That is not right. We would like other people to help us if we are in a bad war. If we help them than they would probably help us in war. And we would need all the help we can get.

  • Everyone deserves freedom

    This will go to help people in other countries, we are given so much in the United States for free and it works wonders. We need to get eveyone the same rights that we enjoy. What make us as humans better than others? They deserve the same rights as us and if they dont have them we should help them attain thos rights.

  • Yes we should

    We should not get involved in all foreign affairs, but we need to get involved in the significant ones. We need to look at having a safe country and we can not let attacks like 9/11 happen again. Yes it does cost but we need to be protecting our citizens. Many say that getting involved in the world wars was a bad idea, but in reality, it showed the world that we were a significant powerful country in addition to supplying jobs for the majority of those who were affected by the great depression. We need to stand up for the safety of our citizens, so yes, the US should get involved in some international affairs.

  • The US should get involved in foreign affairs

    The US has every reason to get involved in foreign affairs. Every aspect of our life is now impacted by what goes on in the world around us. Businesses now are working in a global economy so we need to be involved in foreign affairs to make sure our businesses have a fair chance in the world economy.

  • Yes, the U.S. can hardly avoid it.

    Isolationism might have been a reasonable position 150 years ago, when the U.S. had little power to influence events and the British Empire -- to which we owed nothing -- kept the seas safe. There are two reasons for U.S. involvement today -- first, we have the power to make a difference. While assuming that we can solve every foreign problem is dangerous, there are people in many places in the world living in freedom today because of U.S. military involvement, in Israel, Korea, Europe, and many other places. We would be wrong to abandon them. Second, we cannot isolate ourselves without endangering our own security. The world is a more dangerous place today and there is no one to fill in for us to stop those who would do harm. We would not want to live in a world in which an unscrupulous power such as China polices the seas. While we should avoid intervention unless absolutely necessary, the U.S. should maintain its ability -- and indicate its willingness -- to be involved in world affairs.

  • Seriously? No we shouldn't

    No, we should not get involved, it wasted precious resources and even costs us the lives of our citizens, it also gives other countries reasons to attack us, and I don't see how we can be able to help them if we can't even help ourselves, it's not really smart.

  • We shouldn't get involved for many reasons!

    We need to prevent war world 3 because are we seriously prepared for that NO and look at the problems we are facing now I don't Even think we even have enough money. Think about it Does the U.S have Obligations to fix worlds problems? ~ from a 13 year old

  • Focus on America problems 1st

    There is an endless list of problems we Americans are facing here at home. Lets focus our time, money & efforts on OUR problems.
    If you & your neighbor are both behind on rent & are both facing eviction. You don't try to pay for your neighbors rent, You try to pay your own.

  • It can provoke the other countries

    The U.S is more likely to make enemies than allies. No one likes unrelated people involving in their private businesses. It's the same thing. If the U.S tries to get involved in foreign affairs, the foreign countries are likely to feel irritated and sometimes threatened. As a result, the U.S will have new enemies and the situation will be aggravated

  • It is unbiblical

    Getting involved in every distressed countries issues strains US military resources and funding. 1 Timothy 8:5- "Anyone who does not provide for their people, especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an infidel." The US will go bankrupt if the government sends military support as well as diplomatic funding to every distressed country, and citizens will be neglected and impoverished. The US is not the global hegemony and should not act as such.

  • Too Dangerous for our troops to intervene

    Its too dangerous to send our troops to intervene in every genocide. When our troops get sent to a country or continent that we have never been to is really risky. We do not know what the living condition's are like, by sending our troops to a place we never been is putting our soldiers in danger. They can catch a disease and die or get killed by the attackers. For example in 1975 to 1978 a terrible genocide occurred it was called "Khmer Rouge". There was approximately 2 million Cambodians killed. If we sent our troops there they could have been part of the 2 million killed. When there families are waiting for there son or daughter etc.To come off the train or plane etc. and they are not there they will be questioning where are they? Is he\she okay?. When really instead of them risking their lives they can be training to fight for our country. If you think what about it what are the chances that the continent or country we helped will help us when we are at war. Was it really worth helping them if they will not help us when we need it?

  • NO it is not our business

    Why should we get involved. So we can loose soldiers and money over something that wasn't even our fight. There is no reason for us to get involved if it is not our fault it is a waste of time, money, and people with families. We should mind our business and stay where we belong.

  • Not in our best interest

    The US has enough problems going on inside its own borders. The money spent on foreign affairs is ridiculous and with the national debt at its highest point ever, it is foolish to give away money and troops to other countries. The country should at least slow down it's foreign aid except for extreme cases.

  • The US should have a plan

    Countries affects each other in many ways, it's impossible to isolate ourselves with international affairs, but before interfering foreign affairs, the government should think about theirs citizens first. No matter it's a military involvement or a just handing out money, they should obtain full information on the problem and estimate possible outcomes. The US shouldn't interfere for the sake of being the boss or advertising world peace. But in most cases, I think it's best to avoid involvement in foreign affairs.

  • Too Much Money!

    It just costs too much money to get involved in other countries affairs and wars. It has cost about 1, 440, 570, 500, 000 dollars in wars since 2001. We could be using that money to help people in the country find jobs, etc. Finally, it also costs the lives of our troops.
