    We have been through this before and we have helped others with their problems. What do you think would happen if we just backed out of the war or any other? We could lose allies and if we just let one ally go on with whatever, then how do you think any other country would respond? United Nations. America is great because of its history, its people, and our down right self responsibility to help out our fellow brother in need. Think aobut this, we may not want our troop out there but a hell of a lot of them believe in trying to do good and make this world a better place. We wanted to start and try to do something and we are.

    I hate any situation where a man dies, but if he believes or makes a commitment to do so, than I would back him up.

    that what i have been tryng to say here take the risk becuase id rather us do something and get retalited on than us do nothing and get attacked from all side for not helping

    Re: America vs the world?

    ok.. il put it simple.... as long as there exist 2 different oppinions in the world there would be disputes....
    now what i think the US is doing is helping the countries that the US think are fighting for the same things the US GOVERMENT thinks its ok or the beliefs the US gov has....
    know Ill give a lil example... lets say u have a friend that got in to a fight.. ok? will u back him up?.... now imagin that a bigger scale... much much bigger....
    now why the US gets involved? simple... because overthere(wherever it is) there is a dispute over something that the outcome of that would afect the US...
    now whats the function of the gov? look for its best interest do that ITS citizens would be ok... thats why it gets involved in so many things... although ppl may not like it... the gov thinks its whats best for the countrys interest...

    Im not ok with the idea of getting involved... but if a result of something could affect ur life... wouldnt u get involved?
    Thank you SasuraiHell for making my sig. ur the best.

    Re: America vs the world?

    The problem is, America thinks because it's so rich and powerful that others NEED our help. America thinks it's obligated to be a superhero and save the day, when in reality they cause more problems than they solve. Unfortunate, and possibly will be the end of America one day. We claim to fight for freedom and democracy, but sometimes I wonder...

    Precisely. America is like a superhero, we think everyone else is helpless and needs saving. I've always thought of America, the country, being like Superman. Powerful, but not without flaws.

    We are our own kryptonite. Americans still find themselves attached to their countries of origin, and that makes us too sympathetic towards those that are the true threats.That and having the wrong ppl in office also cause problems.....

    This has nothing to do with being a soldier. Soldiers are just the pawns on the chessboard, so to speak. We're talking about how America is integrating itself too deeply into foreign affairs and how it's going to one day be America's downfall. George Washington had three warnings before he left America to live on Mt. Vernon, and one of his warnings was to keep isolated. Stay out of foreign affairs. What happened once America cracked and wound up in WW I? We made ourselves vunerable, we put ourselves on the table. THAT, is what this discussion is all about.
