Topic: The Western World is not responsible for the deaths of mil..


I believe the Western World is not responsible for the death of millions of people living in deep poverty and famine in Third World Countries. We are not the ones responsible for your suffering, corrupted government and dictatorship is the reason your people is starving. Most Third World Countries have the right climate to grow vegetation for its people, but instead they grow opium and other types of drugs. If the level of education is raised in Africa or the Middle-East, families would stop having 20 children per household and understand the difference between right and wrong.

I agree, we cannot bail you out of everything. We can help if you want to change things, but you gotta have a plan. I spit on the goverments of most of these third world countries, they do nothing to help their people as they starve and kill each other. I think serious reform is needed over there, and you have to learn to fight for yourself.

Even America, one of the most powerful countries in the world, can barely help its own people let alone people on the other side of the world. Take care of your own backyard before you help anyone else with theirs

We can help our own people, however the economic type laid down in our Constitution prevents us from doing too much to help our own. It's one of the benefits of capitalism- it minimizes laziness and maximizes income in our country if people actually have to work for a living instead of sitting on their couches living off a socialist paycheck.

Anyway, I don't think that the rest of the world should blame us for their problems, and any attempt to do so is denial. We spend so much of our taxpayer's money on foreign interests its ridiculous. We hand money out to other nations all of the time, and don't ask a cent in return usually. (cough WWII cough cough). You can't blame everything on the US. Take some responsibility!

It Took Us a Bloody 2 World Wars and around 200+ Years to get to where we are, Let us enjoy it we deserved it. It isn't our fault That You feel for the promises of a crazy Government. Also isn't our fault your government is in the sahpe it is in. Let us spend the money on US and not YOU. We give out food in Africa yet we cannot feed all of our own population. We build Houses in South Asia Yet we do not have enough houses here. WE Give Out Billions in Aid Yet we cannot afford to keep up with our own programs. All of these 'Poor' nations should get off thier royal butts and do something for once and not exspect good ol' USA to come and bail um out.

....Okay I am done preaching.

I think more and more Americans are starting to feel that we should be isolationists....worry about ourselves, and JUST ourselves. And, with how the world treats us, and how everything and ever step we make globally is judged, it sorta makes one feel angry. They all "hate" us, but certainly have no qualms with taking billions in financial assistance.

But, our forefathers, most notably Thomas Jefferson saw us as being an intrical part of the world economy, and a indispensable influence on the world. We cannot turn around and change that now.

Yeah we can, we did it before we can do it agian.


Without America the world would be in trouble even China, without America china would not have the economy they have because alot of thier exsports go to America and alot of thier imports come from America.


So even the 2nd richest nation in the world needs America's help.

My sentiments exactly. We are not at fault, but we can help you if you want to help yourselves.

No. It is the responsibilty of the leaders of these nations. What happens to the money we give them?or the food. They pocket it or sell it.

I remember vividly distributing food in Somilia and once the people had gotten far enough away the Adids boys would take it from them.

They would like to blame us but in reality they starve their own people.
