Is international intervention called for?

Forget about Syria, completely unnecessary violence is going on right under our noses, if you’re an American.

Whether his numbers are off 10% or 20% or even 100%, his point is spot on. A UN Peace Keeping force is needed.

Very sad indeed. Especially our arrogance, terror, and delusion.

    On my recent visit to Chicago I mentioned that I may need to travel to “developing” country for work. I was asked if that was not a bit dangerous and responded that I felt more at risk being in Chicago. This normally intelligent person did not see their question as being in any way incongruous with the high murder rate in Chicago.

    I’ve been wondering when the travel warnings against the US will start. I think until that or the UN gets involved, people will continue to ignore what is right under their noses.

    I felt the same wandering around BKK late at night in my Peace Corps days. As a monk, the USA looked more scarey and there were far fewer smiles.
    As long as the US govt can lean on other countries, like it will be doing to Brazil, the travel warnings will be unlikely except when the likes of Russia wish to score points.
