Should America be the World's Policeman?

"As its sole superpower, the United States has assumed the role of world’s policeman. Citing a moral responsibility to uphold freedom and democracy around the world, America intervenes in foreign conflicts and wields unprecedented global power. But should America invest its resources and energy in global policing? Or should the strongest nation on Earth turn its focus inward and respect the autonomy of its neighbors?"    -IntelligenceSquaredus.org

Citing a moral responsibility to uphold freedom and democracy around the world,

Please please please. Not every police work America did was moral. They mostly serve America's interest better. Another immoral act they do is stealing natural resources in the midst of choas from countries they claim to be helping after their jets and other ammunitions used have been paid for.

America intervenes in foreign conflicts

Sometimes America stirrs up the fight for their own political interest shurrup if you do not know what you say.

wields unprecedented global power.

Unprecedent?? Do you know history?? As far back as when jesus hadn't arrived yet?? Delusive little kid. Typical of an American.

Should America stop interfering to the limit of Russia or China, they will starve like Russia. America needs to eat.

But should America invest its resources and energy in global policing?

Fuck America's resources they get paid and also gives them the opportunity to steal more.

Libya paid america with oil during Qadafi chase and America stole as thrice as much later exposed and they don't feel ashamed or guilty to return it. Other countries too...The only time America doesn't get paid is when it's of their personal interest where nobody called them or it's global interest ...everybody's responsibility where you find military from other countries also partaking...so your point is??

Or should the strongest nation on Earth turn its focus inward and respect the autonomy of its neighbors?" -

America not strong without thiefing. Not finding problems in other countries to thief and influence makes it weak. America not interfering experiment for 20yrs observation is power suicidal.

The US military should be reserved for US interests. That doesn’t mean refusing to help an ally (presumably a reciprocal relationship), but it does mean refusing to help innocent people being slaughtered where we have no national interests in defending them. People would hate the US for this (sometimes we do this), But people hate the US anyway.

I heard a PBS interview with a (future ISIS) Libyan rebel before the US went in. He pleaded that the US send their planes and kill Khadafi, but went on to demand that we then leave immediately because they don’t need us or want us there.

Since we are damned if we do and damned if we don’t, I say we don’t. We don’t need to risk it when there’s nothing in it.

No, because Donald Trump would be in charge! He makes exceptions for himself already, but imagine what would happen if he got more power!!!! I'd probably move to mars. Actually the situation's bad enough already... I'm off to buy my ticket. Byeeee!

I think no because they are wasting millions of dollars every year for American soldiers policing the world and killing their citizens to keep them safe when all together it is none of their business
