    Because of ever changing and improving technology, the world is more interconnected than ever before. Fine and good for America. But America should not be paying more attention to foreign issues than those that affect us domestically. American tax payers have built new schools, bridges, roads, airports, hospitals, etc in Iraq and Afghanistan while allowing our own infrastructure to crumble and eroding education that is almost on par with third world countries. Something is very wrong with this picture.

    We always seem to be all up in another countries business. We should stop sending money, stop imposing your policies/politics, and stop imposing religion on the other countries. Start focusing on the issues going on within our back yard and focus on resolving those issues.

    One thing I wanted to note about this question that annoyed me... the fact you keep calling the US "America" annoys the living crap out of the rest of the world as well. Canada is part of "North" America, and you have many countries within "South" and "Central" America. This is the United States, it's not "America". A ton of other countries outside of the US are a part of "America".

    It's all about the reserve currencey,Iraq had a new currencey the was being used to trade oil,Libya also to had this going for them,Iran is doing the same. Guess who's next on the list to be attacked ??? If all the other countries stop buying our treasurery bonds the US will fail just like England did when the British sterling lost the reserve currencey.Do you think we are big enough to take on China ??? They are trying the same thing as well,the inflation from the dollar is destroying the worlds economies as well as our own,Stop printing money with nothing backing it.End the federal reserve and centeral banks and we will be free.The crooks will leave,the government will not be able to spend money they don't have,balanced budjet and fair taxes we will be free.JFK was trying to do this when he got shot.

    Yes, America need to mind its own business and stop getting into other countries business. Our country is in a "big financial mess" and there are "no jobs" for it's citizens. America need to focus more on the situation here at home for now. There is wanting to help others or countries who are in need, but "charity" begin at home first. The Bible says in 1 Timothy 5:8 - But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an "infidel"!

    With all the "free trade" agreements we have with so many other nations, and all the multinational corproations they rely on the cheap labor available in these countries, the world is one big company. We have interests everywhere. We get our energy from the Middle East. Our clothing from Cambodia or Viet Nam. Food comes from everywhere. More than ever... it is a one world economy and the US needs to protect its interests where ever they are.

    We should, definitely "mind our own business" (first). Since the USA has been "mandated" as a member of the World Bank, et al., then we certainly need to be aware of and on top of whatever else goes on, especially in financial markets. Other then that, WE SHOULD NOT BE INVOLVED in the affairs of other countries, UNLESS their activities are a DIRECT THREAT TO US!! And just to name a couple, I would offer Iran AND North Korea - -those, my friends, ARE DIRECT THREATS and, as usual, the current administration is completely ignoring them.

    The reason I picked none of the above is I do feel we need to mind our own business but because of fact we now seem to be dependent on the rest of the world so much,that is what needs to change we need to pay more attention to our own problems not the worlds wht stick our nose into their business
    take care iof ours,we need to remove the greed in this country that is costing us all,& work for our selves

    I cannot say that America shouldn't be charitable but they should be limited as to what they get into and civil wars are none of our concern.

    America has always been there for countries in need - the US should always involve itself when called upon within our limits. This would be in the area of humanitarian needs, and other humanitarian "dignity" needs. --- (unless american lives threatened) Not invading Libya - as example.

    With current economic conditions per say, I'm really not so sure as to how much more we can do these days? --- Without the proper management leading our government, US assistance might become a "thing of the past".

    normally I'd say yes but at this stage isolationism sounds really good- America needs to ignore the rest of the world and get itself back on it's feet. So no giving away of our money to other countries or foreign companies

    The world is interconnected. Do I think that if a countries people rise up against it's leaders that we should jump into the fight? No, but we do have to pay attention to what others do to know what is coming down the pipe. Good or bad.

    I hate to tell, you if the US became closed off, the rest of the world would fall apart very quickly. SInce we are the dominant political power in the world, we are the world soldiers, and not being paid for the job, except in the marketplace were goods flow and cash moves.

    We no longer are the dominat power in the world we have given that title away we are now big brother,
    our soldiers are being killed for others problems, while their widows & children are left for us to care for & we still pay astronomial prices for their goods that to me sounds like a win win for others than us..

    America is part of the world and right or wrong often looks to us for leadership. What we need to do is stop trying to impose our beliefs and customs on other cultures.

    I agree. We need to stop giving all these countrys our money. In fact we borrow the money then give it away. We help build other countrys and it always bites us in the ass. We have starving people here living on the streets and what do we do ? Ship tons of food to other countrys.

    We can no longer occupy other lands and let our own country go down the tubes. If your family needed financial support you wouldn't let them suffer and borrow money and give it to someone who doesn't like you. THINK

    We spend billions maintaining military post all over the world. Why do we need a military base in Germany ? They can defend theirselves.
