When should we interfere militarily in other countries?

I don't have a long, detailed first post for this one (drunk at 4:17am ldo), but I was wondering what peoples' thoughts are when it comes to super powers intefering in other countries' affairs. Are we morally obliged to intervene in countries like Syria and Libya where dictators are killing (or have killed) thousands of civilians? What guidelines should be considered to intervene militarily? Should we mind our business and let people in such countries fight for themselves or should we provide some kind of support?

The Christian Just War Theory lays out in sufficient detail what constitutes casus belli.

Is there some type of natural resource involved? Oil , preferably, then yes. You just label them the axis of evil , or a dictator, or accuse them of building bombs that you have a thousand of , or say for sure there was yellowcake uranium , and the people will back an invasion.

Do you want to know when should we or when do we?

I think we should attack other countries if they attack us.

Based on my experience playing turn-based strategy games, the answer is "The sooner the better."

So you support economical wars? Would you support just invading countries and looting them for goods?

well the question was interfere militarily. not invade. no i dont support going in and looting for goods. but for example if iran tried to close the straight like they threaten to then yes we need to bomb them and open it back up.

if a country tries to do something to tank our economy. then yes do what we have to to thwart it.

Re: When should we interfere militarily in other countries?

So you would agree that our actions and sanction would be reason for Iran to attack us?
