With great power comes great responsibility

My opinion

To quote the movie Spiderman, “with great power comes great responsibility.” Though it is a cliché, this phrase means a lot to me, and I think it should mean a lot to all American’s.

America is so many things. It is wealthy, it is advanced, it is growing and most of all; it is powerful. We American’s are powerful, and as with all great power, it comes with a responsibility. We American’s have a responsibility and a duty to fend for those who are not as strong, to give aid where it is needed and to stand up for those who cannot fight alone.

I think we have a responsibility to help the people in Libya.

Opinion 2

According to ABC news the President of the United States said, “To brush aside America’s responsibility as a leader and –more profoundly- our responsibilities to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are. Some nations may be able to turn a blind eye to atrocities in other countries. The United States of America is different. And as president, I refused to wait for the images of slaughter and mass graves before taking action.”

Opinion 3

According to ABC news, critics have said that America going into Libya is a bad idea. Some say that the United States should not use military intervention or “police the world”.
