3 Questions...
    #1443225 - 04/09/03 03:22 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

if the people of another nation are under an oppressive regime, do we have the obligation, responsibility, or right to militarily liberate them?

if yes, how bad must the regime be to warrant this kind of action?

just how bad is saddam hussien's regime?

Maybe its a formula they put numbers into:

mushmaster asks:

Obligation and/or responsibility? No.

Right? Yes.

if yes, how bad must the regime be to warrant this kind of action?

It must be one in which the populace has no chance of choosing their leaders, one in which there is no freedom of speech, one in which people are routinely imprisoned for "political" crimes, and ones in which executions are carried out without due process.

I agree on the conditions but for some reason I feel like free people do have some obligation to help those that could not free themselves. Otherwise I feel kind of selfish. American doesn't say we will be the bringers of freedom to the world we do say that all people have the right to freedom. If we do nothing we are the enabler.

This is a statement of principal, not what America has done or should do. I don't wish to argue the past misdeeds, lack of action, or why we don't act here or there.
