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.
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.
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 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.
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.
We should be involved in foreign affairs because it affects our day to day life. I live in New York and was affected by 9/11/01. If we turn our backs now we will have that happen to us once again. and we all know we cannot have that happen again. We have lost our power and need to show the world we still have what it takes to succeed
When a country who has comfort at the price of other countries remaining in poverty, it is our responsibility to step in from time to time to help others. 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.
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.
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.
The founding fathers of our nation once advised all who were to succeed them that America should never be involved in foreign affairs, and they were right. Had we not decided to stick our noses in World War I, we would not have been involved in World War II and the wars to follow. History might have changed, but who's to say it wouldn't have been for the better?
Although some people find it necessary, U.S. Involvement in foreign affairs causes unnecessary deaths of U.S. Servicemen. In Vietnam, thousands of people, including my great uncle Mike, died, and in the end, Vietnam is STILL communist! Also, the Korean War. That war got us literally NOWHERE! In conclusion, The United States should not get into foreign affairs unless absolutely necessary.
