No. It isn't feasible, and we'd have to start with our own country anyway. Invasions usually involve destroying a country's infrastructure, which we don't have the money to rebuild and the countries don't either. It also usually involves destabalizing or completely obliterating the government of these countries, which (not suprisingly) leads to more - not less - human rights violations.

no way, there are to many countrys and there is no guarentee they wouldn't just revert back

The only thing that would make me approve the invasion of another country would be if they were invading us first. But of course we'd have to fight them off and make them backtrack to their own country before we could invade them in return.

No way! It hasnt worked with Iraq or Afghanistan, you can't go around invaiding countrys just because they do things that you don't agree with. If a country belives passionately in peice and democracy then they should use democratic and peaceful ways to try and get the country to change their ways.

No country has a perfect human rights record. I find it interesting that a country with a history of forced sterilisation has the ordacity to criticize the regimes of other countries.

I agree with sleepy1568....I don't think democracy can be forced on a country as the majority of the people have to believe in it first. And because democracy leads to more bureacracy it might even be bad for developing countries....the circumstances have to be right for it to work....that's just my theory.
16 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/6/05 - 5:57:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, and I also agree with sleepy 1568 and newt. I don't understand why we are in Iraq, let alone go into another country.

I don't support invasion (therefore war) of ny country no matter what
16 yrs ago - Monday 4/24/06 - 9:01:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know that it wou;d work but I do think it would encorage a good human rights record from everyone.
16 yrs ago - Tuesday 5/9/06 - 7:52:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Invade them all! Even the ones with good human rights records!
16 yrs ago - Tuesday 5/9/06 - 7:55:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I wouldn't. It's not the job of the USA to be the world's police, period.

I agree, just because we think it's right doesn't mean everyone else thinks so. Also, the reason America is such a powerful nation anyway is because we were/are in charge of our own revolution.

If a country is opressed I leave it up to its own people to rebel. It's non of our business to force a rebellion. If it's needed, it'll happen

no i wouldn't.

Absolutely not. No explanation needed.

there isn't a country with a spotless human rights history..damn rare if they currently uphold human rights..

In my opinion, invading countries is a dangerous business no matter how powerful you are.

It should never be undertaken without considering the many implications.

A country may be ruled unfairly however the overall consequences of invading can sometimes be even worse than leaving it be. Global instability, power vaccums, massive civillian casualties just to name a few. Not to mention damage to infrustructure and danger to your own country.

There are obviously good reasons why nobody has yet invaded North Korea or China despite their atrocious human rights record. Or even U.S ally and dictatorship, Saudi Arabia.

I often get accused of supporting Saddam because I never agreed with the war on Iraq. But I'm sure the U.S administration doesn't want to go to war with China. Does that mean the U.S government supports China's methods?

There are more subtle ways of bringing about democracy that are much slower but much more effective in the long run.

We are the most powerful nation in the world. That is a fact. Thus, we must feel a moral obligation to fight for the enslaved everywhere. Yes, our country isn't perfect, not one is, but we are much better off than many. When is the last time you didn't have food simply because the militia forgot to bring chicken? As cliche as it is, we must act as the world police, however it would be nice if the states could get more support from the U.N. so that lazy fag countries like Britain and France would help out.

there are so many things wrong with what you just said, i don't even know where to start

WWII???? you don't think we should have stopped hitler from torturing and killing millions of people??? milliions?? as in about 53,000 9/11s?

i cannot believe you said that. god damn hippies, war is necessary sometimes, for the good of the world.

15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 12/22/06 - 9:15:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I wouldn't. War or invasion isn't the answer to everything.

thank god there's someone reasonable on here. everyone whines about the U.S. not minding its own business. But if we didn't stop the horrible things going on in the world, who would? other major countries obviously won't, we found that out when we asked for their help in taking out a murderous dictator.

ugh! i don't understand what's with you anti-war people. i'm not evevn going to argue, because you are too unreasonable

oh my gooood. i'm ashamed that there are people in america with these kinds of opinions. "just leave it up to them"

o yea, those starving unarmed sudanese women and children should just miraculously rise up and drive the thousands of militants out of their country. it's none of our business
