World Peace has been something that the united States has tried to maintain. This has been a cause of controversy as to whether the United States should intervene in the problems of other countries. Because the U.S. is the most powerful nation, it has a responsibility to help others. There are benefits to U.S. intervention such as helping other countries, having allies when we are in trouble and, freedom worldwide; however, drawbacks exists such as killing our own, financially, and we intervene, we will need to keep our guard up.
As American our first reaction is to aid other’. The United States can not sit around or look away while people in other countries kill innocent lives. “The U.S. needs to take a stand to help those who are super powerful in order to promote peace.” (Debate.org 1) “I know that the U.S. is tired of war and conflit, but American will lose it moral compass if we just sit by and watch… we had to stop evil.” (CNN.com 5) If the U.S. helps the other countries innocent children and adults will not die and will be safe in the long run. “Obama said the image and videos of children in pain and dying required the United States to act… Syria and U.S. children alike safer in the long run” (The Canadian Press 1)
When the U.S. protects other countries rights we are showing them that we are loyal and trustworthy, so when we need their help, we know we can count on them. “America must look after America and its allies.” (The press 1) Also keep our trading partners close because without them we won’t get supplies that the U.S. need. “We can protect U.S. interest trading partners, military allies, countries with needed resources.” (Balanced Politics.org) But we should protect our allies from their rules who abuse the power. “The U.S. should help allies of the world from the injustice that spur from dictators and tyrants.” (Debate.org 1)
As an American you were given freedom as soon as you are born. You are taught to love and respect other also to stand up in what you believe in. So why wouldn’t we stand up for people in other countries. “if we don’t protect freedom worldwide, we might as well give it up here in the United States.” (CNN.Com 5) We get to by our teachers and parents that if we see someone doing harm to somebody else to tell someone. Then why not send our troops to help and protect people in other countries. They need our help/protection because they can not defend themselves because they will get killed for speaking up.
Even though people we like to see the U.S. help the other countries there are some people who think otherwise. One drawback of protecting other countries is some of will get killed or injured in a fight to save other people’s lives. The families of the fallen soldiers are getting aggravated because they are getting killed or injured for a problem that ain’t our problem. “Let some other countries like France, Russia or China solve the world’s problems, and lets not spill our blood.” (CNN.Com 5) ...
