Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have the United States, the caregivers of the world, pull out in all of the nations around the world? Why not pull our soldiers out of areas that are hot spots and men and women soldiers are getting killed every day. There are leaders such as President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan and how he does not appreciate the sacrifices we have made to secure his citizens from the Taliban, as well as other terrorist groups that want to harm or kill his people. Radical Islam is on the march so that Sharia Law can take hold throughout the Middle East.
Do you remember when we liberated the people in Iraq from Saddam Hussein’s tyranny? Do you remember how the people demonstrated their disdain with hatred?
In the past we have given financial aid to war-torn nations (beginning in 1948) because of the collateral damage done through war in Europe after World War 2 ended. The Marshall Plan was named after the Secretary of State George Marshall.(it is officially called the European Recovery Program, ERP)
The United States has been the main financial contributors to the I.M.F., the International Monetary Fund and have given much financial aid to poor nations. The funds going into I.M.F. are astronomical. Fortunately or unfortunately, depends on how you see it, the American taxpayer is funding nations that hate us. Nations who are not fiscally responsible, are referred to as the “Eurozone Crisis “ such as Greece, Spain, Ireland, Portugal, and Cyprus. (Please scroll down after clicking on the the Eurozone Crisis link and read by what happened to Cyprus when the citizens had their bank accounts seized)
The American taxpayers have been left on the hook to pay the debts via I.M.F. to help nations who are suffering financially so that Europe and their Euro would not collapse. (Just as a side note the American Dollar is in trouble due to the Fiat System and not the Gold Standard as it was before President Nixon 1971).
I believe it is important for us to be knowledgeable about the Fiat Currency because it is vulnerable and through time has been devalued. What I am saying as well as many trust worthy economists and financial experts the dollar is soon to collapse. Here is a brief review of what Wikipedia says:
- In monetary economics, fiat money is an intrinsically useless product, used as a means of payment. In some micro-founded models of money, fiat money is created internally in a community making feasible trades that would not otherwise be possible, either because producers and consumers may not anonymously write IOUs, or because of physical constraints.
Would it be wise for us to pull our money out of the I.M.F. and bring the money back home to pay down our own debt and secure our currency and we will have a better chance in saving Social Security and Medicare and other valuable programs we benefit from going under?
Part of the stimulus money from taxpayers went to A.I.G. and unfortunately the European banks especially the French banks benefited by the United States hard working citizens.
Now let us look at the flip side to our efforts to our humanitarian mission as the caregivers to the world. We do live in a time where there are human rights violations, especially what is going on in Syria as well as other rogue nations around the world that wants to kill their citizens.
There are dictators that have been under the media radar that have not been reported much in the media. For instance the nations listed below are either war crime perpetrators or human rights violators. Argentina’s Mignone, Emilio Fermin; Estlund, Cynthia L.; Issacharoff, Samuel.
Chili ‘s General Augusto Pinochet (1973-1990),
Phillippinines, Ferdinand Marcos in 1986.,
Turkmenistan, (Jennifer Lopez sang for his birthday recently)
Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow. These are just a few of course there has been many in the past that have not been forgotten about. For instance the dictators that had charges of war crimes against them. For instance, For more information on world leaders that were prosecuted for human rights violations and war crimes click on this link.
When the United States have shown passiveness and have not been involved we are passive or have been passive by not get involved in human rights violations, nations suffer with catastrophic deaths. For instance, Cambodia with 2 million out of 8 million people perished, Rwanda 800, 000, Darfar 200,000 and that is not counting the loss of life in the Middle East with dictators such as Bashar Hafez al-Assad of Syria and Saddam Hussein of Iraq.
The question I pose at this time is, do we need to purify our foreign policy to suit the needs of the inhabitants of the world that are suffering tyranny as a way to be clear about our message without being arrogant? It is important to have our president send a message of humility so the world knows that we are a nation of strength and purpose.
I believe what President Bush believes, here are some of President George W. Bush’s quotes:
- “History has called America and our allies to action, and it is both our responsibility and our privilege to fight freedom’s fight.”
- “America will lead by defending liberty and justice because they are right and true and unchanging for all people everywhere.”
- “America stands for liberty, for the pursuit of happiness and for the unalienable right for life. This right to life cannot be granted or denied by government because it does not come from government, it comes from the creator of life.”
It is the “One Nation Under God” and men and women that lead us to fulfil our purpose around the world. We have been royally blessed because of who we are and the “Gift Giver” that gives us the means to do good around the world.
Have we lost our way through the measures of time and do we still have the fortitude to do good around the world? Have we become complacent and rebellious to God by remove God from our money and the Ten Commandments in public places? Only time will tell as we seek to stay true to our principles and values as a “Nation Under God.”
I hope you enjoyed the tour of knowledge and research, it is important for us to be informed on world events and how important the United States is for our contribution to the world and the inhabitants well being. It is the pursuit of happiness that we are commissioned through the name of God for His people to be free from tyranny!
