    Its the Moldives, send a single destroyer and special forces.. Capture the tyrant Yaseem.

    I'll abstain. I agree with the spirit but not your weak execution.
    I'm not a supporter of military intervention where it can be avoided, hence the "weak execution" as you put it.

    Tell that to the Syrians currently having chemical weapons dropped on them.

    Libertarian foreign policy is not realistic.

    Get the Americans to deal with it, since they love to throw the 7 fleets they have around so much. Unless they particularly threaten British interests or territories, I feel simply, in the words of Chamberlain of all people, that it is "A far away country of which we know nothing"

    I was quoting you in your question...
    Have you find the dictionary with the dodgy definition yet or are you going to concede it isn't intervention, people just don't like voting for things they agree with if they come from the wrong person

    Then one day that far away country grows from the small country it was that posed no threat, to a powerful state creating a real threat. Foreign policy cannot be conducted by ignoring the rest of the world, decisions need to be taken to decide if a country not posing a threat today could become a threat tomorrow if nothing is done.

    The Maldives? A threat? I don't think so, considering the fact they're sinking beneath the waves... If this was, as you reference, somebody like Germany, Italy, Japan or another country that well, mattered, the premise would be much different. My opinion is that we shouldn't concern ourselves with people that just do not matter.

    It has now been three days. Have you found a definition that supports your position or do you concede that you are wrong to say that it is intervention?

    As I said in my first comment regarding this, I voted against the Iran motion because of the last sentence of it. Thats all I have to say on the matter.

    Do you do not believe it is interventionist to say that, you just disagree with the idea that liberal western democracy is a better system of government than theocracy?
