Are american's globally nosy?

Do you feel that American's stick their noses in the business of other countries too much? I'm not talking about helping countries when in crisis, I'm talking about Americans sending troops to fight in wars all in the name of "promoting democracy." Or sending weapons to countries like Egypt. Now that there is a call for change in goverment America needs to step in to protect the use of the weapons we gave them.

Do we step in too often?

  • I believe they are globally concerned about anything that might affect the U.S. or their citizens.

  • Catch 22 - if we ignore the problem we're heartless and greedy. If we offer advice we're nosy and rude. I think we need to be "heartless and greedy" far more often than we are, but it really comes down to WHO is in need and whether we need them on our side down the road to get other things done.

  • Sometimes we are too nosy, sometimes we are not nosy enough. We do an awful lot of behind the scenes propping up of the wrong people.

  • Damned if we do, damned if we don't.
    If we just let everything go, crap happens and we're STILL the bad guys for it lol What would have happened had we stayed out of the problem with Hitler/Nazi's? I would hate to see where this world had ended up.

  • I think if we try and stay out we are looked at as heartless but if we go and helped we are seen as being too involved. There is fine line that we have a hard time not crossing. Sometimes I think that it is expected that we will come and help.

  • Well, if you look around here, I see a LOT more Canadians discussing American politics than the other way around! (NP gets best answer in my vote.)

  • America has interests (economic and otherwise) all over the world. Seems to be all intertwined at this point ~
