I'm not saying that people should fall hand and feet to help everyone but if we are able to stop the regime than maybe we could get more allies. Maybe if we actually help than we won't have people hating america and saying that we are just a bunch of obese and ignorant people who don't care.
Yes, a child was killed. Why does that mean we have to take care of it? Why is it our responsibility to wipe the noses of every Middle Eastern country that has a gun to shoot? Maybe if we would just let them stew in their own juices for a bit, they could solve their own problems and we could stop being portrayed as the mommy of the world.
The US is already spending more money on our military than any other country. Regardless of the wars happening in the world, Americans have done more than their fair part of taking out the enemies of freedom. If the US spent more money on military every time someone is unjustly killed, then it may even encourage terrorists to commit increasingly random acts of violence.
America should not be the world's policeman. It should act when people are asking for help and act to defend against threats against this nation. Unless the Taliban is seen as one of the most significant threats to American national security, America should not be spending more money and putting ourselves in greater national debt to go after terrorist regimes outside our borders. In addition, even if we could wipe out the Taliban, new terrorist organizations take its place. Look at how ISIS has expanded in the past several years.
Before we spend even more money on the military given our other problems, we should spend more time investigating why we haven't been more effective rather than just spending more money. Candidates talk about bombing bombing bombing, increasing military spending, but don't say anything about how the money would actually be used effectively.
