Year Zero: Policing the World to Safety

by | Jun 3, 2019

  1. In Episode 44 Tommy addresses a common position in modern America. Should Team America police the world? And if they do what is the result?

“I believe in police the world… i do.” ~ Dana Perino

For decades the US has adhered to this policy of policing the world. In doing so they have convinced their citizens that they reign with benevolent authority over other sovereign nations, and that the sins of these nations are greater than the casualties that will occur due to intervention.

10 of the 15 most dangerous countries in the world have fallen victim to the policy of American benevolence. More chilling still is that every nation listed in the top 7 have undoubtedly been directly related to the policies of policing the world since 9/11/2001.

I’m not suggesting that Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, South Sudan, Iraq, and Yemen are peaceful utopian tourist destinations if not for the US. I am simply pointing out that organizing coups, bombing nations, inflicting crippling blockades, and destabilizing regions do not ever make a nation safer. In fact, as the military has grown – perpetually intervening in other countries – life in America has also become less safe, climbing to the 43rd most dangerous nation in the world.
