Why does america always feel the need to bomb other countries, can't they just mind their own business?

If I saw an innocent child being attacked, should I stop the assailant or ignore it because it's non of my business?

so then why is America always invading other countries? I don't see any other countries invading America? hows that for America "minding their own business"
Report as
They're not invading America because we are a first world country not engaged in a civil war.

Americans aren't the heroes, they are the largest terrorist country, and have killed countless innocent people
Report as
We are sometimes heroes, but yeah those drones have caused lots of deaths. I wouldn't say America is a terrorist country.

And I'm not saying that its good to be nosey and i was always against the whole "bomb afg. And iran and......ugh omg i don't know what I'm taking about don't pay attention to me I'm just 16 i don't really know what I'm saying plus i don't really watch the news i usually just read the comic strip)

Since you don't watch the news I will tell you whats on it atm, America is potentially in trouble right now as other countries have found out that the footage" being pics of Syrian kids being chemically attacked) has now been proven to be fabricated and Photoshoped by america.. so the whole thing was set up to turn people against the Syrian government.. corrupt huh

No matter what the US does we get criticized. If we do nothing, we get accused of being insensitive. If we take action we get accused of "sticking our nose in someone else's business".

America doesn't have to do anything, america isn't the world heroes, the UN should decide what to do, the Russian president even hates what America does
Report as
Who cares what the Russian president thinks of us? He's a tyrant

obviously America does, haven't you watched the news or read the paper?
now stop believing everything you hear and develop a mind of your own by opening your eyes

America strong!!
Report as
exactly, America is rich, meaning power.. like Hitler.. and America totally abuses their power by killing innocent people and trying to bring down the reputation of the middle east, which is clearly working as they plan, then once their reputation is right down, they plan to kill them all of because " they were dealing with nuclear weapons, and America says that's not allowed" and just wipe them out and take their oil and resources. America is already in the process of this mass murder.

@ sfeyz. I am thinking you should study a little more history. Why is it when I disagreed, you automatically think I "believe everything I hear."? I can form my own opinions after the careful study of the history of our nation. A conversation doesn't interest me anymore when people insult another for having a different opinion. You sound a little like a bully yourself. Most US citizens do not care what Putin thinks. Come, let us reason together instead of insulting another fellow human being. Either way, I do hope you're having an excellent day!

No doubt this will catch us in the ass if it didn't already like on 9/11... Like George Washington said on his farewell address America should stay away from foreign alliances (like isreal) and forming political parties. Neither of these ideas we followed. In my opinion the US should become a neutral nation and make peace with the world.

I agree, America tries to "help" ( steal oil) from other countries, but only accomplishes deaths and enemies. America is the real terrorist ( the government and congress, not the people :)

I honestly don't know if these wars are just or not. You tell me there's some mass genocide of women and children and ask me whether we should stop it, I think I'd always answer yes... but at the same time, we seem these days to take these "peace keeping" missions and they seem not to work out in our favor. And, I question how practical it is to keep peace at the end of an M16. It's a toughie. That said, I do think the talking heads (not the band, the people on television) tend to oversimplify it on both sides. I'm an educated guy and all I've got is 'I dunno.' ...

If you think it's acceptable for countries to use poison gas on their population, just say so. If you think there is another country or group that should be enforcing this, tell me how it would be done with Russia blocking it?
There are no easy answers to hard questions. It would appear we are getting something that will stop the gas attacks, but we won't know for months if it worked.

Why do we suddenly care? Why do we "mind our business" when people are murdered in OTHER ways, but suddenly it's "our duty" because people were killed by chemicals? What about every single other horrible place in the world with innocent people dying that we completely ignore? Africa, anyone??
Report as
No one wants a chemical warfare. end it before it begins!
Report as
Bombing them will make them like us and not use chemical warfare against us?

They used it on their own people. if we just shrug our shoulders when will we be next?

But lets go with ms Stina. She wants to be an isolationist. There is plenty of reason to be one. Except when there isn't. The question is-- is the situation one that is, or isn't? Reasonable people can disagree, but the majority of Americans seem to think Syria is a "not."
Report as
Agree.
Report as
I have no solid position on the subject, shiny. It's too complicated. I guess you could say I'm trying to play devil's advocate here (kind of) because I want to hear both sides of the argument.
Jewelery - Not what I was saying. I'm saying, will bombing them prevent them from hating us and wanting to attack us? Will bombing them or helping the rebels help the Syrian people?
Also, we shrug our shoulders to other atrocities committed throughout the world, why are chemicals MORE atrocious?

My understanding is that the Syrian govt is bad, but the rebels aren't so great either. If we decide to take action, shouldn't it be action that will help the Syrian people? Not pointless aggravation?
Report as
It might make them think twice about doing it again.
Report as
so to speak.
Report as
I thought you said you were afraid of them using the weapons on us, not that you wanted to prevent them from using the weapons on their own people again. Considering that they're already under so much scrutiny, can we really expect them to use chemical weapons on their people again? I think the Syrian govt is walking on egg shells already and knows that if they are *caught* again, they will be attacked.
Report as
I think they should surrender all their chemical weapons.
Report as
ms stina, I advocate picking a side. It's less confusing, and allows us to get a drift for your thinking. Being devil's advocate may be fun, but really, something feels right in your soul; and I'd stick with that. But if I recall, you're young, and playing devil's advocate may give you a chance to try out different ideas and see how they fit for you. So nevermind.
Report as
I have trouble picking a side to a situation where Syrian people will suffer either way.

I think everyone would love it if they would surrender their weapons.. Kind of a no brainer.
Report as
I quite agree. In fact, war would be much more civilized if we played a game of chess to determine the outcome. Let's make that rule, shall we?
