Alliances With Other Nations No Longer A Gray Area

What our nation considers to be the gray area when it comes to our alliances with other nations should not be considered as such. There is no amount of money or military support capable of fixing a damaged nation if we continue to allow them to hurt their women and children.

People have heard the expression “being in the gray area”. Do we know what this means anymore when it comes to our alliances with other nations?


George Washington would turn over in his grave if he were to see the nations we call allies these days. He warned against having a long term alliance and funding outside nations, and he warned about the potential corruption in our nation caused by such alliances. Today we send more money to those who should be considered enemies then we do those who treat us like an ally should.


Afghanistan wants more money from us when it comes to helping them rebuild their nation, and our Commander and Chief wants to provide these funds... What is the point? When President Karzai and the government with him thinks setting a woman free from ten years of prison, where she was placed for being a victim of rape, just so that they could force her to marry the relative who raped her; where is the justice in this? What is the point to sending billions of dollars worth of support for Afghanistan when we can't do more to help the poor women and children in their nation. We look past this nation’s corruption and act as if we believe our weapons and money can fix their nation... Are our leaders’ complete fools? If we allow this twisted sense of justice in their nation; this corruption, then there is no amount of money that can help them. We need to cease the funding towards such corrupt nations, for this is not being in the gray area, this is being in the shadow; for we are inhibiting their progress by allowing their injustice, and then paying them while doing this. We should use this money to help our own nation instead, where we have more of a hope in taking care of our women and children.


Allowing freedom of religion in our nation is a grand gift bestowed to us. But when we fail to recognize the difference between a dangerous ideology and a religion we hurt our people and our nation. Just like we wouldn’t allow a Christian cult where children are married to adults, or allow Pastors’ to have several wives who are under age, neither should we allow an Islamic ideology that teaches true Islam is one where one condones the killing of an Infidel; any non-believer. Yet as crazy as it may sound one of the fasted spreading ideologies of Islam in our nation is one inspired by the book titled “Milestones”. This book was the number one inspiration for the leaders of the Taliban, Al Qaida, and the Haqani Network… And we have the audacity to wonder where our recent homegrown terrorists came from.


When did we start believing that providing support or freedom to those who wish the American people harm is being in the gray area? This is wrong, period.  How is this misunderstood?


Being tolerable of one’s rights, does not mean we should ignore the obvious threats. In Afghanistan they will arrest a woman for being raped, and she may even be killed before this can happen. Supporting a government who allows this, and calls this justice is just as bad as allowing the same injustice in our own nation.


Doing the right thing is usually not easy, and people may suffer, but this doesn’t mean we have a right to look the other way when the wrong thing is happening… This makes us cowards and no better than the perpetrators of the crime we choose to ignore. Contrarily after the crime has taken place right in front of us our leaders shake the perpetrators hand and then give them money and support.


We are no longer justified when it comes to our alliances with those who contradict and despise our nation’s liberty. We are no longer in a gray area, but instead we’ve become an accomplice to their injustices.
