Clark Griswold Posted February 7 Share Posted February 7 So, there's a country starting to dissolve in our hemisphere, not far from our shores and I've been casually following the story. It's awful, it's becoming a problem spilling over its borders and starting to directly affect us vis a vis illegal immigration and becoming an ungoverned space that will become a base for illegal activities throughout the Caribbean and Americas. Do we intervene, stabilize and prevent the collapse of the state? I'm fairly cynical on the idea of nation building but I'm not for letting problems just build in our sphere and letting us be affected by them when we could prevent it. I'm not sure it's nation building we should do versus just plain old occupation / stabilization and stating this is done in the interest of the USA, not bending logic and trying to spin it but just stating matter of fact we're doing this to prevent a larger humanitarian problem and reasonably trying to help the Haitians.
