Is Imperialism justifiable if your nation is surrounded by inferior nations and you have a good reason to grab their resources?
I was thinking and thinking and thinking till I came to the final conclusion that YES, Imperialism is justifiable if it's for a good cause.
America used the WMD card to invade Iraq for resources, but think of it, what would Iraq under Saddam have done with those resources, with petrol? Nothing great or helpful to his people! Saddam would've exported the oil for a high price and instead of developing his nation by building schools or hospitals with the gross profit, he would've added new Russian additions to his military arsenal as if that's something worthy of remembrance.
But like it or not, at least the Americans with that petrol and the money they make from exporting it fund space programs, new technologies, developments, etc...
This doesn't mean to say the American's are knights in shining armour, nobody is perfect, but please ask yourselves this! Why do all technological developments or scientific breakthroughs come mostly from the United States of America?
Would you rather have useful resources in the hands of desert Arabs who burn others for criticizing the Quran or would you prefer the Americans? Who is of lesser evil!? Just because those resources are located in your lands, doesn't mean you have "claim", the world has no real boundaries!
I rather have oil in the hands of progressive peoples than a bunch of silly Arabs who build skyscrapers to please the masses but when there's no oil left it's game over for them.
The people who slander Americans for "Imperialism" and other crap like that are enjoying the technologies invented by the Americans because of Imperialism! It's only the tiny fraction of educated Americans, Europeans or Japanese that can offer development to humanity! Not Arabs or the rest!
Now, Imperial Japan, a mighty and honourable empire that had no resources also had no choice but to expand against 3rd world inferior nations such as China!
"Imperialism, it's what funds your science, your technology, your life, your everything" Tezel during the Plertherin Wars, annexation of the Middle-East.
Sometimes I curse and curse the Americans, all that helium3 soaked in the moon's craters which can be refined and converted into nuclear fusion energy to last the American empire another Millennium, why don't you guys go and grab them, why?????????? Grab them and leave the rest to drown in their limited resources on over-rated planet Earth that ****-hole people keep on calling heaven.
