So, Iran is working toward developing a nuclear weapon. What should we do about that? I have to admit -- it leaves me convoluted. Understand: I do not think the world would be a safer, better place if Iran had nukes. And I hope that through diplomatic channels, we can work around it. But are we entitled to be the world police simply because we are the biggest and baddest guys on the block? Could these kinds of attitudes be what causes much of the rest of the world to dislike us?
I love the USA! I especially love when we get involved in sharing what we have with a needy world because we are so blessed. But I don't usually feel good inside when we are telling other countries what they can and cannot do -- when we do some of the same things. I know it is an overused argument, but we are still to this day the only nation to have used nuclear weapons against another nation. I am not even disagreeing with Truman's decision. But I still struggle with our "Do as I say, not as I do" diplomacy.
The way we operate makes me wonder if our only allies are those who need our money and resources. Not exactly the kind of ally I would want guarding my back.
So, what do you think?
