QuoteOriginally posted by: Beavis<blockquote>Quote<hr><i>Originally posted by: <b>monkeyA</b></i>I agree with DCFC on the type of peacekeeping required.The trouble is, if the UN can't do it, the US is probably the only country with the military might and willing to actually go in there and do a proper job - ironically though they won't because they've found world and public opinion so against them whenever they've go in somewhere in the past, and suffered first hand in the form of extremism from the people who's land they then have to occupy.<hr></blockquote>What we should do is pull out every last soldier from every corner of the earth and return them home. We should immediately withdraw every last aid offer to every last country and not give out a single dollar to anyone.Then after two years we should count how many people and countries are left.In that case, you should also pull out all your oil firms from all countries and in fact all your business operations from all corners of the globe. Wait around for 2 years and lets see how many jobs/ people are left in the US!

So Alicia your argument is that non-americans will refuse to make profit trading with americans unless US soldiers are holding guns to their heads ? ("Take the yankees money or we will shoot!")?! please. pray tell how did Japan become such a massive economic powerhouse with such a puny army then? very strange no?

What I do not agree with is the notion that America or any country for that matter gives so called "aid" free of charge! If Chevron, Elf, Shell et al. are doing business with oppresive regimes and paying their corporate tax to their respective governments, then the governments are by proxy, party to that oppression. Likewise, selling arms to countries that can't feed their people is immoral. And lastly, exporting goods at will to 3rd world countries and then stopping them from doing the same isn't quite fair, is it. The IMF even conditionally lend money to some of these poor countries to not produce their own food, with the argument that such undertakings is not efficient or economical! Common, it may cost a lot to begin with, but eventually will be fine. Do we just want to keep feeding them and saying how greatly merciful we are? Your move, chief

those are all good points. check mate. you win. although i would point out that just because something is in one parties interest, it isn't necessarily detrimental to other parties interests. the whole basis of western economic theory is that what is good for me is good for all of us (by pursuing my own self interest (within the lmits of a competitive market of course) i make the world a better, more efficient place for all) i think it is unrealistic to say the us shoudl do everything it can to help the world and nothing for it's own account. of course most decisions are made with narrow self interest in mind, (everything is politicial isn't it) but often america's leaders have pursued policies that what are good for their constituents profit margins but also good for the world as well. helping countires develop just makes more consumers with ducats to spend on gm's products right?
