    On the one hand, some people think that leaders should intervene with other countries problems. This may be because they think that they might need their help. For example take Hong Kong. They were in danger so we had a debate about whether we should help them or not. Some people thought yes because they are in danger and we are nice people so we had to help them. Other people thought we shouldn’t help because Chin have a massive military army and we don’t want to get involved with that.

    However, on the other hand, other people think that leaders shouldn’t help other countries in need because they may have a bigger army than us and if we do get in a war ( which WONt happen) we might lose. For example if we did help Hong Kong we could of got in a war with China. This would be bad because they have a MASSIVE army.

    After approaching the information with open mindedness and scepticism I NOW strongly believe that the right thing to do is not to intervene with other countries problems because they are not our priority and we might get ourselves in danger. Thanks for reading my comment!!!
