A look into the future , a realisation from a non interventionist.Submitted by guiltyspark on Sun, 05/27/2012 - 09:08
(before you watch the videos they contain violence and blood/gore)
I think everyday about the downfall of america and the slow chipping away of our national liberties. Somebody once said something along the lines of "it wont go out with a bang , but a wimper" I dont believe that the govenment is sinister about this , i believe they are truely ignorant and think that they are helping the country and protecting it. In otherwords i dont see the government as inherently evil , i see the government and its seniority completely detatched from what america is about.
Over the past few days i have been following the story in syria and it has changed my mind about non interventionism. I honestly think these people need our assistance in some way. These people are just like us , only at a different point of their revolution. They seek the same thing we seek , freedom from an oppressive government. Its truely insperational to see these people fighting for whats right. and truely disgusting to see a government with the gaul to kill its own citizens , children even.
here is a quick 10 minute news peice that is fantastic.
And here is what the people of syria are fighting for (warning , extremely graphic)
The thing that i took away from this is that yes , we do have the most powerful military in the world , and in some circumstances , where liberty and innocent people in the world are being massacred because of their government , its our job to assist in some way.
take it as you will. Im not for sending out troops in ala-iraq. But im sure a few intelligence agents on the ground marking targets for b2's would help these people take back their country themselves.
