The United States is not the police force of the world. We must act in our interests and place our national security first. We, the people, do not want war despite our past and current battles. We certainly also do not want endless wars. Evil exists and always will—but we can do our best to minimize it. Our alliances need to start paying their fair share and help us in this factor we know as “burden sharing.”
In the East, we face dangerous powers. Russia and China are not our friend. Though we must work with them on trade and stability. Russia stands behind the Dictator Maduro of Venezuela and China is a currency manipulator. Both of which are trying to be the leading Superpower. North Korea has been an unstable region and must leave sanctions in place. Negotiations with this current administration have made some progress.
In the middle east, chaos spreads and brings death and destruction. For years that region has brought about many battles and wars. The United States must work with the states involved, understanding sovereignty, and minimize the damage. We have lost many lives in the region and in other battle and wars. We cannot continue to use our time, resources, money and most importantly American lives for these battles. Terrorism is ramped in the region.
I stand with the people of Iran against their dangerous regime, and the people of Syria against their Government and President Assad. Both regimes kill their own people, and Assad has used chemical weapon means. We must stand with the state of Israel not only because they are the only democratic state in the middle east, but because the Jewish people deserve their land and for them to live in peace.
