We cannot meddle where we don’t belong

I wish someone would explain to me why it is that we must try to get involved in the rest of the world’s business.

Our government does not seem to learn from their past mistakes.

I am referring to the latest statement from our State Department telling Russia not to get involved in crime, which happens to be on Russia’s doorstep.At the same time, it is 8,000 miles from ours.

I have read or seen nothing in the news as to Japan, Australia or Canada being concerned enough to tell Russia what to do about their neighbor.

We do not need our government officials going on national TV and making statements such as our secretary of state did.

We need to learn to mind our own business, and we certainly have plenty to mind without becoming involved in another part of the world where we do not belong again.
