Superpower Has a Moral Duty to Intervene in Foreign Tyrannies: An Analysis

Topics: United States, Percy Bysshe Shelley, United Kingdom Pages: 1 (274 words) Published: September 15, 2011
United Nations declared a policy stating that ‘no country has to intervene in whatever affairs of other countries. Then how can my opponents call intervention a moral duty while violating the UN principles? In this contemporary world, superpower has a habit which they call as a ‘moral intervention’. But I refer this as ‘poking their nose in other’s matter’. In this politically cut-throat competitive world, one never intervenes unless & until if he or she gets a profit out of it. Superpowers do the same. They only intervene in matters for amassing wealth & especially to quench the thirst of black water. Percy Bysshe Shelly in his Queen Mab says “Power, like a desolating pestilence, Pollutes whate’er it touches”

For instance, the former Yugoslavia, the Serbs, Bosnians etc. fought for nationalism. But as the superpowers like Russia intervened things became explosive just as Lord Acton said “Power corrupts absolutely & absolute power corrupts absolutely.”. The final result was the disintegration of Yugoslavia. We all desire India to become a permanent member in UN Security Council. But ? Just a mere fear of India becoming superpower and superpower becoming soft power. It is the USA who provides arms & ammunitions to Pakistan, so as to suppress India. Is it not tyranny on the part of United States? Then how can a tyrant end tyranny? However my obstinate opponents are still under the illusion of superpower intervention. Superpowers should not mess around with some other countries till theirs problems are over. Finally those who believe that ‘Superpower has a moral duty to intervene in foreign tyrannies’ I believe they live in the fool’s paradise. Thank you.
