Despite their lack of morality and democracy comprehension they claim very ambicious aims. Is there any good reason that america should judge other nations or intervene national or international conflicts?

Well, the best argument I have heard is that they are the strongest nation and have the biggest chance of success in military intervention. I still hate it though.

China is actually the strongest country in terms of military. With about a 3 million man standing army, they sure can put on some pressure. From what I hear, America - like most countries - is supposedly in the strings of the banks and the elite or whatever. I don't want to just spew conspiracies, but I don't see many other theories that explain it well.

I think the answer is not so complex. The two parties (I never understood why there are only two...weird) are funded by corporations. The most talked about example is beef companies but that's not relevant here. If the parties are funded by...let's say an arms manufacturer, this company will want something in return. Business. While this may not directly cause America to intervene, it certainly explains why America retains such military power, and why it never attempts to reduce it.

Genghis, man power does not mean strength. See USSR in WWII.

America does its best to make the world a better place. They kill terroriste and bring dictators to fall. Without the help of the USA, South-korea would just be part of north Korea for example.
But sometime they also support dictatorship to pervend Tribal Wars/Civil war.
Also, without America, Europe would be part of russia or the nazi's.

Thx America! The fallen American soldiers did not die for nothing, and we should always be grateful for their Great deeds!!

ok, didnt expect that many replies.^^

at Happy Bunny: pls dont get mad with me, but I always thought people who answer like you only excist in television. could you please explain how america made or make the world a better place? I hope you didnt mean, that killing anybody (especially those who arent obedient to american politics) makes the world a better place.
by the way your clan logo is a bit confusing in case of what you said about europe and the nazis.
and at least I wanted to mention that there are many nations fighting against terrorism and dictators. Just even remember the russians who defeated nazi germany in WWII. I guess their contribution for a better world is still much higher than americas, if you count the kills and losses...

That is true, Arun. However, a large army can still be very mean. America is supposedly downsizing the military, though I never heard much of that idea's resolution. Also, there are countless parties. Literally, there's Libertarian, Socialist, Communist, heck there's even a party and the candidate is Vermin Supreme and their goal is to give all Americans a pony and turn the pony poop into methane gas. Still, with a very terrible " democratic " election system, it might as well just be Republican and Democrats. Also, USA has made many bad decisions. A strong one to note was their arming Afghanis to fight the Soviets a while back. The Afghanis practically turned around and started shooting at us.

There has always been a world power ever since civilization developed. America is in that position now. Age Old Nationalism or National Interest never died out. Add to that the interests of the American Military Industrial Complex and you see a possible reason for their interventions.

The misgivings we have for American Foreign Policy is mainly due to one reason from the way I see it. America follows the paths the old European Imperialists once did. The difference being America hides behind gilt edged words while the Imperial European countries made no secret of their aims.

They stoped WWI And WWII! They stoped wars and bring ballance in this world.Just imagine how the world would look like if they would have never had participated in any conflict outside their borders.

Unlike the US, i dont want the wold to be a better place. The world is overpopulated and it can not go on like this. Maybe a disease that will kill 70-95% of the population is a good solution.

The best examples of the terrorist: "the Taliban"
and dictators brought to fall: "Saddam Hussein"

Both got the power with the support of America, only to be removed later again. You can say they make the world a better place by doing so, but they often (not only with these examples) they`ve put those there themselves.

Then leave. You won't be missed.

The irony in all of this of course is that the US gets criticized for intervening in situations but then also gets criticized for NOT intervening. The situation in Nigeria perfectly illustrates that with people complaining that the UN and US haven't done anything to save the kidnapped girls. Yet when the US does get involved they will be equally criticized for stepping on another nation's sovereignty.

most of the time, not to say always, they intervene for their own benefit ( oil profits, mine concessions, important geopolitically locations )

The situation in Nigeria perfectly illustrates that with people complaining that the UN and US haven't done anything to save the kidnapped girls


I thought they sent ground forces and surveillance drones to help rescue the girls. 80 US soldiers were sent into the adjacent Chad. That sounds ridiculous somehow. I cant believe that they are anything else then military observers.
But the situation in Nigeria and the rest of Africa is a bit more complicated. If someone would have a closer look, one might see there totally different and much more serious crimes, which are even worse.
anyway, those islamic radicals, who presumably also kidnapped the girls, killed this year about 1500 people during their assaults. They claim the north for an islamic state (Chad borders to the north east). in my opinion, the US simply uses the girls terrifying situation for an evaluation of the islamic influence in that region. Im not so sure that they ever intend to find the girls. otherwise they might already have found them.

During the Bush and Obama era they showed that they are capitalists in its pure sense and that they care about nothing except money. which leads me to the final question:
Is there any good reason that america should judge other nations or intervene national or international conflicts?

Why Overpopulation is a problem is because Humans consume too many resources. More water, more land, more Oil.

Efficient farming does require large quantities of oil, steel and synthetic fertilizers and all of these resources are limited (/also their prices are constantly rising), and obviously there are alternatives but they are far less efficient even with the constantly rising prices, before we had oil we used animals, before we had synthetic fertilizer we used organic fertilizers, and before we had steel we used wood, and yes 500 years ago when the population was a mere half billion and more then 95% of them were farmers we could manage with those tools, but we live in a different world.

another resource that is very limited is farmland, while its true that producing basic crops wouldn't require that much land, but the thing is people aren't happy with just eating bread they want meat and all kinds of fruits, and thats why a single person needs 10000 square meters of fertile land (/a year), and since we already turned most of our forests, wetlands, swamps into farmlands there isn't much fertile land left to sustain our ever growing population.

Seems the fool who made this Video did not "Think About It" . The Fish populations are dwindling due to overfishing, Jobs are harder to find because too many people & not enough Jobs.

Overpopulation is real.

The only intelligent way to control population is to allow people to have as many children as they want, but then require those children to compete for available space upon the month of their 21st birthday. They would have to compete with their same age group. They would have to compete against nature, allowing nature to perform its job of natural selection. Each of them must have electronic trackers on them reporting location and vital statistics. Place them in a jungle location naked and unarmed and allow nature to kill off the slow runners, crippled and sick. When the number alive gets low enough to result in a controlled population, we pull out the winners and have Earth's population under permanent control and allow people to have as many children as they please. This is such a good approach, because it provides a large workforce of young workers before they enter the natural selection process and we need this workforce. Also a large population of children is important if we face some kind of natural disaster or ET war.

When you're dealing with population control, it's a lessor of evil choice. So you need to develop an approach that best serves the people. Using nature to do its natural job, eliminates most of the corruption involved in deciding who lives and who dies. You might think it's ethical simply to reduce the number of babies born. However, you are depriving so many of not being able to experience human life at all. In my example, you go ahead and have the children who get to enjoy the best part of the human experience, life as a child and young adult human. 

assuming that you are causing no harm by limiting the number of children you have. I propose that you cause greater harm not having a child, than having the child and letting the child enjoy 20 years of the best years of human life, before facing natural selection by the jungle. They would not be fighting each other, they would simply be pitting themselves against nature individually. Even if the average couple had four children, this would only result in a 50% culling of the herd at natural selection. So your odds of survival would 50/50 and man has faced far worse odds than that from time to time.
If you believe in a Creator God, then you must also believe that an abundance of life is important. The purpose of life is beyond your comprehension, without some enlightened person telling you that purpose. Unfortunately, their are so many liars among you that provides little help, but it seems obvious that there is a purpose to life and most can take solace in that.
In a time and a nation that commits so many murders of babies, simply because they are in a fetal condition, ethics is hardly a condition that a Doctor should put forth.

This is simply about controlling and possibly reducing population, by a natural mechanism that is incorruptible and that is nature. Still corruption is likely to get itself involved because mankind is barbaric, primitive, corrupt, cheaters; with the belief that the only thing that matters is winning.
You are living under the rich, because they won and they have cheated, killed, stolen, bribed the government, etc. in order to get were they are and stay there.

"China is actually the strongest country in terms of military."

Lol. Dream on. They might have more soldiers than the US, but their military doesn't come close in other measurements.

China's defense budget is 126 billion USD, the US's is 612.5 billion USD.

There is absolutely no comparison.

China might have a chance against Russia, but they'd be outclassed in that war even.


The US would walk all over China in a war, and that'd be without having to resort to nuclear firepower, which if entered into the equation would give the US the ability to eliminate all life in China nigh-instantly with nuclear bombs.

I'm Chinese, and I agree that our military power is behind the US. However the three superpowers in the world (china , rus, US) are all powerful enough that a full scale war between them will be so devastating to both sides it (hopefully) wont happen anytime in the near future.
