I battle with that thought as well. An isolationist policy hasnt always worked out too great for us either though. A lot of times we rely heavily on these smaller countries around the globe, especially ones with close proximity to potential threats, to strategize and leverage things in our favor. I think a lot of our view on interfering in these types of scenarios is to discourage anyone from gaining momentum in their goals of expansionism.

I have no idea what the right answer is, I have just learned that sitting on the sidelines comes with its own set of risks as well.

Ask yourself if you want you kids vaporized for a bunch of socialists in another country? Russia is standing up for traditional values and Christianity...the roles have flipped...we are now the evil empire due to wokeism...and they won't back down...these are lunatic, delusional people (the left)...they want to do to Russia what they have done to us. The woke marxists in the USA are the new caliphate and the Chinese and the Russians and everyone else knows it. Even that pansy leader of France has expressed concerns that exported wokeism will erode the national unity of France.

The elements fit this have been in place since 1949 for China/ Taiwan, and since Putin gained power for Russia. The fact the world pretty much did nothing when Russia sent in troops with insignias into the Ukraine... then annexed it...

Now, America is far too fractured to do that, people are far too selfish to do that, and there will never ever be another situation that results in that kind of pride in and effort for our nation.

I think you are wrong about this, and I hope I’m not alive to see if it’s true or not.

The divide we are seeing is nothing new. Happened many times over the rather short US history. That being said, many people won’t even be bothered to wear a mask... rationing food, gas, ammo, etc may kill a few here :). Think I changed my own mind.

Because Americans (the people) saw that war as just - Americans (again, the people as a whole) banded together, tightened the belt, put differences aside and worked to win the war. It was a war effort. Truly.

Now, America is far too fractured to do that, people are far too selfish to do that, and there will never ever be another situation that results in that kind of pride in and effort for our nation.

We're on the same page. It takes an unimaginable event to bring us together. We saw it in the few years after 9/11. We just need another one of those to play catalyst.

President Biden and the Squad might surrender but I bet the American people wouldn't...I think there are still millions of patriots that would stand and fight a foreign aggressor especially if it was here on American soil....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
. If they took their cell phones away long enough to distract and arm them. But I agree we are on the verge. I have said it before and I'll say it again, we need another real war to united the nation. Biden is the wrong person on the world stage right now, he couldn't unite his own family much less our nation. What kind of a message is he sending to our youth when he says about a coke user, swindler, extortionist and foolish enough to put his porno on his laptop and take it for repair that "He is the smartest man I know."

He is letting all of us know we have been right about politicians all along. If he hasnt met anyone in DC smarter than that after however many decades, we have been right for a long time.

The next war will be won with computers. All they have to do is shut off our power and watch us kill ourselves.
After a few months most people will be glad to accept whatever gov can get the power back on, tell us it's all ok, here's your cell phone back. It has gov propaganda preinstalled, but no matter.

I am just saying that seldom does inaction work out on a personal or global scale. I also will never try to defend the ideals of Russia or China because they are much further down the path of injustice committed against their own than we are. There is a lot going on in this country that I vehemently disagree with, but saying that we have swapped places with Russia or China is a bit hyperbolic or selective of the issues each country has at best.

I know there are probably plenty of topics that a lot of folks here wouldn't agree with me on and that is completely ok with me. If everyone thought exactly like me, it probably wouldn't work either. I still think there is hope for America to get better, but it is going to be through our kids and grandkids. We don't have enough years left to fight it all on our own and kids have never listened to old folk anyway, haha. The best we can do is be active in our political arenas, raise our kids to be self-sufficient, worthwhile human beings that embrace the values we hold dear, and treat those around us with enough respect that we dont slam the door in our own face before we can win them over to our side.
