What I think…
- How has our involvement helped?
- How can it be worse if we were not involved?
- Is it American policy to be the police of the world?
- What government has ever come close to being able to police the world?
- Is it the will of the people in America?
I am reminded of some words of Jesus and a principle that can be derived from it.
Mark 14:7 “For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me.
That is, in the midst of trouble in the world you still have to set priorities.
If God designed governments to bring peace and stability to civilization and if God set the boundaries of these governments, what good is it for one nation to overstretch itself to its own demise? I mean if a free nation helps a less free nation but collapses in the process where neither nation is now free, what good is that?
I believe it is very important for Americans to understand why there is such a push and presence in the middle east. I am not convinced it has anything to do with freeing people or protecting them. Instead, I believe it has to do with using people and exploiting them to the benefit of a military industrial financial complex. The Deep State is using America to further its wellbeing. This reminds me of another saying of Jesus.
Matt 26:52 Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place; for all those who take up the sword shall perish by the sword.
And one further point I would like to add. If my neighbor is having a domestic dispute to the degree I can hear them yelling at one another, to what extent is that my problem to resolve? Am I responsible to police my entire block or city or state or nation or world? Inconceivable! I would create a domestic dispute in my own home if I did! Isn’t it much better if I see that no dispute erupts in my own home and simply encourage others to do the same by way of word and example?
