Should we be concern on what's going on on the other side of our world?

How do you think it will effect us over here in the states?
Thank you ladies for your input ;)

  • Of course we should. What happens on the other side of the world affects us in one way or another.

  • We should if it is going to affect us either economically or affect our safety in some way.

  • Certainly we should pay attention. The benefits of freedom for the ME and North African countries that are revolting for democracy are sure to affect the US. It could be the beginning of a whole new type of world. We can hope that they succeed in obtaining a valid government. It would only be a benefit to us and the world.

  • There's no such thing as things that "only" happen on the other side of the world, bedbugs to war, it all ends up trickling here in some form or other.

  • As humans, we should be concerned about what is happening, but I do not believe that we need to respond or get involved in every incident that arises. Too bad the UN is such a mess. Shouldn't they be the group that monitors rights violations and outward atrocities? The US has internal /domestic issues which should be our #1 priority, while maintaining a close 'eye" on what is happening globally.


    Our core is weak. WE all know what happens when the core is weak.

  • Oh heavens yes. Mostly because we get oil from most of those places who are in unrest right now. You think $4 a gallon was bad. If they set the fields on fire in Libya our prices will sky rocket. Civil unrest anywhere in the world is not good and has the possibility to hurt the USA economically and can become a safety issue. To make matters worse, we don't really have a "worldly" President(contrary to some) and he is like a fish out of water with these issues.

  • You bet we should be paying attention! The situation in the ME is perilous at the moment. We will probably be very lucky if it doesn't bring about WW3.

  • If for no other reason than you are a concerned and prepared consumer, you should be concerned with what's going on everywhere... There is now a facebook campaign with 100's of supporters to support protests in Saudi..... If Saudi falls anywhere near similar to Egypt~ Oil prices could jump from 98 to $145/barrel... Then add to it, if Algeria and others fall~ Oil Prices could surpass $200.00... That will increase the cost of EVERYTHING you buy from products to heating/cooling, etc... So, imo all should be concerned...

    Very true. And sisteract is right about the UN. Even Clinton basically told them where to put it.
