Rachel DeWaard's curator insight, May 21, 9:43 PM

Whether or not the U.S. should have gotten involved with this Libyan oil crisis or other foreign affairs across the globe is a matter of foreign  policy. In this case, I feel like the US did not have to become involved. I think the US should weigh which foreign affair is really our business and which we should help in.

Breanne Hemann's comment, May 23, 7:29 AM
I think that it was good that we were able to help out Libya without any acts of violence. Not only did this help our country, because oil prices with be reduced but it also helped Libya. I think that in dealing with foreign affairs we should be more careful not to involve ourselves in battles that aren't necessary, but in things like this we should help out more.
Reed Klunder 's comment, May 23, 10:46 AM
I think that we should do things like this more often, we need to help those who need it but not fight their battles. It not only help benefit them but it also benefitted us. This is what the government needs to lean towards. Why try and fight when you can make peace?
