Re: 400 civilians killed in Homs, Syria and Russia dithers
There is too much meddling in the domestic affairs of sovereign nations today, that lead to more disorder and chaos, than if you had just left those nations alone to do what they have a right to do.
If there were a revolution here, a violent one involving guns and even military grade weapons, and other nations stuck their noses in our affairs, even with threats of coming to the aid of our rebels, how would that go over here? What, is America sacred or something, of more value than the rest of the world? What gives us the right to be the exception to the rule? Because we say so?
Do unto others and you would have them do unto to your is the best way to address matters of this nature. We cannot destroy all of the evil in the world, it is a hopeless cause. It is a noble cause, no doubt, but impossible to bring to fruition.
So our military should be one based upon defense, and it only responds when we are being directly attacked. If attacked we should go all out, with all americans sacrificing, as we totally destroy the real and actual enemy of america. Tend to our our business, rebuild the nation for the future, placing our money there instead of maintaining an army that can fight two wars at the same time, even invading two weak nations at the same time.
The US is already in dire financial straits, as the cost of being the world's police force has gone a long way in creating the fiscal problems. Let the rest of the world do as it will. That should not be our concern. Then when something like Syria comes up, we just let the best team win that battle. If they ever attack us, we totally destroy them, and let them worry about rebuilding.
