Do you think that the U.S. should go to other countries and help the hungry?
The United States of America through organizations such as its Agency for International Development, the United Nations, etc., has long been involved in overseas assistance to the hungry, sick, and needy. In earlier days (such as in China) much of that assistance was through church groups and the American Red Cross. Church groups and other nonprofit humanitarian groups still provide such assistance on a scale you would have to investigate to believe.
Of course they should and to a degree we already do in certain areas. At the same time we need to feed our own homeless people here in America.
I believe we should, but I also agree we should be taking care of our homeless people and people of need in our country as well. I see a lot of arguing about President Obama's healthcare plan, for all to have insurance, but not many arguments to stop sending assistance to feed the hungry, sick and needy in other countries.
Should America go into other countries and help the hungry? The answer is never a simple one, and I feel it requires a thorough answer. What do you think? read more
Only if there are NO people hungry in our own country. The amount of money the government and private people give to other countries is beyong me when we have so many problems at home. If every country would help it's own there would be no need for outside help! It's sad because we see starving children in Africa and because we care we donate. American Government doesn't want the pictures of all the American children starving on tv. Almost all problems in other countries exist in our own and should be taken care of by our own citizens. How can we help others when we can't help ourselves?
If we are going to help out anyone, I think it should be done domestically first. It seems the government gives money away to other nations right away to help out even when there are so many problems at home. I don't really think it's the government's job to feed the hungry though. That should be done through private organizations and charities. The US has too many handouts and entitlement programs, which only add to the debt and dependency.

The role of America in internal affairs of 3rd world countries is a topic to be discussed and debated. In my opinion America is very keenly indulging itself in it.
