Foreign Policy Debate

Protecting America’s interests

Nation building
Spreading Democracy
Forming alliances
Toppling oppressive regimes
Spending millions of dollars
To shoot rockets
Drop bombs
Incinerate human beings
Turning homes into rubble
Sending young people into battle
Where some are killed
Some kill
Some are maimed
Some maim
Some suffer psychological trauma
Some cause psychological trauma
Defending our allies
Making progress
Stabilizing a region
Protecting, enforcing and defending
As human flesh burns
Minds melt
Sorrow reigns from the heavens
And peace lovers are mocked
We’re not living in the real world
(Who’d want to?)
