Should the Western World intervene in the Middle East?

  • Yes they should

    I'm going to focus mostly on Syria. If we look at the start of the Syria Civil war the president, Bashar Al-Assad was gassing and murdering his own people. The West are currently involved in Syria to prevent this from happening and to prevent ISIS from taking control of more land. I say that is the West let the president of Syria continue it would be completely inhumane. A civilized country can not stand by and let another country destroy themselves. And now to go on th=o why the should intervene. We lived in a globalized world. What one country does affects another country . You can see this in the migrant crisis. It is like pollution problems cross borders if the west have the power they need to help our fellow brothers and sisters so even more countries are not effected. This is why I strongly believe that the western World should intervene in the middle east.

  • Us is needed

    If america was not in the middle east there would be even more chaos then there is today. Think of everything that the military has done over in the middle east......If they were not over there it would be terrible think of how much more the extreme groups would do!

  • History repeats itself

    I am not saying that Aassad is Hitler or this is directly similar to the Holocaust. But Hitler and Germany thrived in the world where they could not be stopped before World War 2. If America intervened then the outcome could have been a lot different. America allowing Assad to kill his own people is bad enough but then to use chemical warfare! America must strike or the middle east rulers will thrive and Russia will benefit. Unfortunately America didn't intervene when the death count was lower.

  • Yes, of course

    The Middle East is a troubled region, and the "Arab Spring" has not helped bring democracy; only an intervention from America, Israel, and other western nations can do that. We toppled Saddam, and have Iran on a tight leash. But we must go further, we must overthrow all anti-America and anti-West dictatorships and bring in democracy. This will bring back the stability, not isolationism or non-interventionism.

  • Yes, it should intervene.

    The reason that the western world needs to intervene in the Middle East is because there are many extremist groups in the Middle East that hate the western world and thus are a threat to the security of the western world. The governments have a responsibility to protect their citizens, so they need to fight against threats in the Middle East.

  • Yes the Western World should intervene.

    Yes, I believe that the Western World does need to intervene in the Middle East in order to help ease tensions. I think that the United States and other western countries have a moral obligation to try and help the Middle East find some peace, and that can only occur though interventions.

  • Yes and no

    I am leaning more towards yes because these extreme groups need to be crushed if they are not who knows what will happen. Other than that there is no point being in the middle east wasting are money. It is ridiculus to pull out of some countries where these terrorist are because they will just grow and be a terror all throughout the world.

  • Learn from past

    Most of the Middle East have a dictatorial regime ? Why? Short ans is that what works there till the people of Middle East themselves unit together for a change . West intervention though on paper seems benevolent , end result is complete coas with non functioning governing structure
    Terrisom thrives in a failed state.

  • Prolonged escalated conflict

    The west need to leave these countries alone. It's very undemocratic to assume that western nations should have a say in the affairs of the middle east, particularly if such politicans have no clue about middle eastern culture and affairs. Defeating terrorism can only come through education not direct war.

  • I am conflicted.

    On one hand, the US is responsible for most conflicts currently happening in the Middle East, indirectly or directly. On the other, it seems intervention is only creating more animosity towards the US and in the Middle East itself, and pulling out of there is the best we can do. The Middle East should develop itself and not be shaped by the US' blunders there.

  • We Shall Not

    Many people think that with all the people dying, including children, have rocketed the world. Even though we think it will help, it truly will not. If we attempt to intervene, it will end up like our last 26 times. We will fail. That concludes my discussion. Thank you for your time.

  • We Shall Not Intervene

    You see, we have intervened in the Middle East 26 times, out of those times, we have failed every single time. If we attack them, WW III Will break out and Russia will attack the U.S. if we attack Syria. It will not help if we act. It will mess up the balance, and that is my statement

  • The future of the American Military is in our hands

    Toppling Assad would only increase rebel infighting and cause the U.S. to be involved in the conflict for decades to come. Not only this, but the great majority of U.S. citizens are against getting involved in this terrible mistake of a conflict. We will regret for many years to come.

  • The Middle East must naturally develop itself.

    The Western World is responsible for most of the problems there today. Most extremist groups have had western military support/training in the past. Almost all Middle Eastern countries had their borders drawn by Europe, and poorly so. Due to their lack of knowledge about the Middle East, the Europeans randomly mixed various conflicting and allied tribes, completely ruining any chance the new countries had of achieving stability. The US, Europe, Russia, and Israel need to leave the Muslim world alone. Israel should leave all together. By the way this is coming from a white Christian from the US, so do not think of this as bias.

  • Independance actually means something.

    I'm not condoning Assad's actions, however, both Britain and America have a habit of assuming their way is the ONLY way. By intervening in yet another Middle Eastern country's crisis, they are opening themselves up for further criticism. The West should keep themselves to themselves, especially considering Russia's stance to this. Russia is a country you don't want to find yourself on the wrong side of.
