OPINION: U.S. Should Avoid Conflicts That Don’t Concern Them

Recently the United States has been the talk all around the world. Contributing to this would be the recent attack on Syria, the bombing in Afghanistan, and most notable the dispute on nuclear weapons with North Korea, which has yet to give up on creating them and testing them in the ocean.

Many would have believed Donald Trump coming into office would have “saved” them the trouble of getting into fights with other countries, as he had promised during the campaign, but as he nears the 100-day mark of his presidency, the problems continue to worsen.

Countries such as Russia and China who had firmly stood by the president have questioned whether the actions he has taken have been correct, because even though they don’t see eye to eye with enemy countries, they believe they can eradicate the problem another way, which won’t involve casualties and unnecessary destruction.

795943_1China’s leader Xi JinPing has called for restraint on North Korea as the U.S.S. Carl arrives, a ship sent by the US in defense against North Korea. According to Newsweek, the Chinese leader also said, “The United States should not run amok and should consider carefully any catastrophic consequence from its foolish military provocative act.”

The United States should not be getting into problems that don’t concern them. Angering other countries because they feel the need to be a bigger power does not make up for the destruction they have left behind.

What the United States should be doing is focusing on the problems of their own country, as there are many here, beginning with Donald Trump, who has promised and promised but we have yet to see any change.

Furthermore if the U.S. is so willing to continue with other countries’ problems, then they should at least put the best interests of the people first.
