What would you fight for, UM_Gazz?
First of all, thank you again for a great reply. I guess on a subliminal level I missed that question. It is a tough one.
What would I
The obvious would be my family and home.
On national and international levels, if it was up to me.. I’d fight first to eliminate poverty and suffering within my own country. Call me a
pragmatist, however It seems foolish to take on the world’s problems and conflicts without first taking care of your own.
I would fight to protect the freedom and security of my country, But only after pursuing every possible avenue to a peaceful resolution. War and
bloodshed would always be the very last option. I would not ever invade any nation that was not a direct and immediate threat to our own boarders and
I would fight for a humanitarian cause, when and where ever people are suffering unjustly.
The United States of America should not be the world’s police, judge and jury. Nor should be forcing our values and democracy in regions where it
destabilizes the population, or is not wanted.
The cost of war in economic damage, lives and peace had better be justified with a clear and present danger to ourselves and the world, not based on
fabricated intelligence. Fighting a war should always be the last option not the first.
What have we done?
What will we fight for now?
Who is next?
