Should the US defend the freedom of other countries?
Freedom is defined as “The exemption from the power and control of another; liberty; independence”. The United States of America should not defend the freedom of other countries because consequently those countries become dependant on the US aid, nullifying the concept of freedom as well as hurting domestic US features. In other words a country should be able to independently provide for its own freedom if it is going to declare itself truly “free”.

In addition to the no- relative-benefits that the aid provides, innocent American lives and money that could be invested in helping the prosperity of the country is funded into Iraq.

Also, much of that money is used in the ignored-but-still-existing-inhumane genocide of the Palestinians; attaching strings that later trace down to the US. This money could be invested in solving underfunded education, paying off debt, and aiding more domestic issues, instead of being sent to terrorists and being put to heartless,...
