Isn't the US the world's biggest super power (aside from China)... we pretty much are responsible for what happens in the world
I completely disagree with this kind of sentiment. Just because you are big doesn't give you the right to push and bend other countries to your will. That's what bullies do, because they are big.
I can't help but be on the fence about Syria. On one hand, no other country should be involved in what appeared to be a civil war. That kind of shit needs to be figured out between to the government and the people fighting the government.
On the other hand, using chemical agents to win the war does not make for a "fair" battelfield (if there exists such a notion).
What ever happened to the notion of peacekeeping (like Canada's role in the 90s with Bosnia)? Wouldn't it be better to send in [quote]peace-keepers[/quote] that don't have a side and enforce peace on both sides? Just a thought!
