American Interference in Foreign Waters: Prudence or Paranoia

The history of American intervention in foreign affairs under the pretext of seeking protection of foreign allies and its own national interest has been the backbone of American foreign policy for a long time now. The same policy was instrumental in garnering public opinion to go to war against Saddam Hussein under the pretext of WMD and against the Taliban controlled Afghanistan under the pretext of seeking America’s most wanted criminal for 9/11 attacks. While nothing was gained in Iraq except for army and civilian bloodshed and destruction of the oldest heritage sites of the world, Afghanistan proved more difficult than previously thought. The longest war in the history of mankind couldn’t even come to a conclusion with Osama’s death in a secretive operation in the Pakistani city of Abottabad as the American and foreign presence there continues.
