Intervention Fatigue

by lizard

Do you feel dread upon hearing reports of your country’s military involvement abroad? Does a general sense of futility lead you to question the necessity of dropping humanitarian bombs on ____________ ? Do you see the worsening economic malaise creeping closer to your doorstep and wonder how the fuck your political leaders can justify perpetual war? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may be experiencing symptoms of Intervention Fatigue and may be in need of medical attention.

What is Intervention Fatigue? Glad you asked. America’s Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, is raising the alarm about this perilous condition:

Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, warned the American public against a kind of intervention fatigue, emphasizing that U.S. leadership is needed now more than ever amid global threats from Ebola to the Islamic State.

“I think there is too much of, ‘Oh, look, this is what intervention has wrought’ … one has to be careful about overdrawing lessons,” Power said Wednesday during the Defense One Summit. At the same time, she said, “we are asking an awful lot right now of our forces.”

Please, if you think you may be suffering from Intervention Fatigue, it’s very important to avoid overdrawing lessons. This may include reading articles from alternative news sites about places where interventions have happened. If you write blog posts drawing attention to post-interventions utopias, like Libya, then you may be considered an active carrier of the dangerous condition known as Intervention Fatigue. Persistent active carriers may be subject to quarantine.

Interventions are important. They are complicated. So when symptoms of IF begin, remember, national security:

“The risk of using military force is so significant … there should be a lot of layers and a lot of checks and balances. But at the same time there are really profound risks to our national security that exist today.”

Again, dear readers, please help raise awareness about the nationally debilitating effects of Intervention Fatigue. Tell your friends and family members to be resolute in their support of a multi-layered, significant use of military force in perpetuity, in order to advance our democratic values and respect for human rights across the globe.

    OxyClean had Billy Mays. War contractors have (needs work) Samantha Power. Banks hide behind all the arm waiving collecting rents. The world is their game board.
