I understand everything said in this article but the reality is this isn't America's fight. America is not the world's police force. We already have our own conflicts and wars which are bankrupting us as it is. We simply can not help everyone, we lack the time and necessary resources. The UN and NATO can step in if it even gets to that point but the media frenzy seen here in America hasn't been completely accurate in my opinion. American news outlets as well as the BBC were the only ones to report on the alleged time limit given by Putin which he denied ever giving. Simply put, this is not America's issue and we shouldn't intervene in matters that don't concern us. After Syria other world leaders think we're weak but honestly we shouldn't have been mixed up in it to begin with. I feel for the innocent victims but we have our own innocent victims here in America that need our help. How can we effectively help another country when our own people are suffering?

Moral support wasn't enough? now we are sending them one Billion of taxpayers money , which might have been helpful to our schools plus many other programs that our own people need that our government recently voted to eliminate because we are so far in debt they had to be stopped, they want to take away lunch programs from our needy kids, but no problem with handing out a Billion to a foreign country?

USA Constitution Day is Sept 17...we need to keep trying to help those who are not protected by human rights based legal systems. We have a growing exploitation here in America which includes resources and energy but also the crimes which enslave and destroy lives.
