will lose all respect and fight against us even more than they already do. Moving onto the current day, these problems are still very relevant and need to be discussed. It is a heavily debated topic, but there are some common truths we can all agree on. Over the past ten years, the U.S. has intervened many times, but it really became significant after 9/11. Lots of women and men signed up for the forces that day and the weeks after because they felt a need to protect their country. It’s in those times it’s justified for the U.S. to intervene. We were responding to the injustice and horror acted on us, with strength and force. It is also justified when we are sending aid to poorer countries who need resources such as food, water, or medical aid. There is a difference between Humanitarian Aid and Interference however, and we can’t forget that. Humanitarian Aid is when a country helps and gives aid to a country that needs it. These are mostly sent out when a nation has been greatly impacted by a natural disaster, or if a disease breaks out and the country doesn’t have the resources to save their people. An example of this Humanitarian Aid is soldiers aiding people in Pakistan being effected by the bombings in their cities. The other term is Intervention. This is most used when there is a war in a country. An example of Intervention is when the UN sent intervention, which was highly controversial at the time, when NATO bombed Yugoslavia at the time. It killed more than 2500 civilians, 89 of which were children.
