  • Sometimes Not Always

    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.

    Meaning of ‘Boko Haram’
    Yusuf founded his own mosque in the northeastern city of Maiduguri. Outsiders gradually came to know his Salafist sect as Boko Haram, based on their understanding of his teachings.
    The most commonly accepted translation of the name, a phrase in the indigenous lingua franca Hausa, is: “Western education is forbidden”. It could have a wider meaning though, since “boko” may also signify “Western fraud” or similar interpretations.
    The group has since said it wants to be known by a phrase that translates to “People Committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Propagation and Jihad”.
    Targeting school children
    In 2013, Boko Haram targeted pupils in a series of awful school attacks in the northeast that killed dozens of boys. Later there were reports that the group was also kidnapping girls and women with the intent of raping them or making them brides.
    In April 2014, attackers raided Chibok deep in northeastern Nigeria and kidnapped 276 school girls, generally between 16 and 18 years old. 219 remain missing. Shekau claimed credit for the kidnappings in a video and threatened to sell them.
    We need to stop such hard some school children being taken
    give me a better reason

  • Maintaining our allies

    The U.S. should get more involved with these conflicts because maintaining allies is key to a great country. As with the terror attack on France, they've been there for us since the beginning of this country. They also supported us during the times of 9/11. Yes, many of our troops have been killed, and I am a military family. But, these folk who join the Army, or Marines, basically out ground troops, join knowing that they are putting their lives on the line.

  • Yes, In certain cases

    Duh, we should help others when NEEDED emphasis on needed also we need to take into account if its worth it or if we have the money and resources to intervene in foreign affairs, yes its good to help but not if we need help ourselves, when we need help will we get it?

  • Human Rights and Economic Reasons

    A majority of the dictators in power now are a result of failed us foreign policy so we are responsible for that and we should fix the problems we created. It is not easy to do. But if the US steps back and does nothing they are seen as the bad guy like in Bosnia or Rwanda. The world is a very complex place and some countries have the responsibility to help countries that are not capable of help themselves. But the US should be careful with its motives and the practices it carries out. The motives should be to help the civilians, promote democracies, and build up a stable economy for the country to better itself

  • We totally should

    We have helped foreign countries since the beginning of time so why should we change that now. That's the entire point of having allies, they help us and we help them. Yeah we should focus on our problems first but our problems compared to others is nothing. WE need to help the people that cant defend themselves because another country is bullying them.

  • U.S.A is in power

    Because it is not fair to go and treat human being like some countries do like how African Americans' were slaved and made to work when whites walked all over them. Another is when communism is trying to take over the world and terriost are becoming popular an no one going to over power us in U.S.A

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Not really, no

    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?

  • Should not be involved unless absolutely necessary.

    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.

  • 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?
