  Ricardo Ezequiel Loya Orduño 6th semester, “C”   April 10, 2014 Editor: Francisco Ayala Rodríguez The United States Should Not Interfere in the Other Countries Internal Affairs Last year WikiLeaks  revealed that the United States spied and interfered in the internal affairs of several countries. The information brought an uproar to the international community, then a question arise among them: should the United States interfere in the internal affairs of the other nations? There are several reasons for the United States or any other state not to interfere in the internal affairs of other countries. First of all, a foreign intervention such as the one from the United States, infringes in the sovereignty of a nation. Sovereignty is the quality of having an independent authority over a geographic area such as a state. Being a sovereign state entails responsibilities to the nation and its citizens; therefore, always looking for the best interest for its nation and the people that inhabits it. When a nation loses part of its sovereignty, such as in the interference of a foreign state, it cannot guarantee the wellbeing of the nation and its citizens. Secondly, by interfering in the internal affairs, the foreign nation (e.g. the United States) affects the other nation development. In 1960 the United States government imposed an embargo against Cuba for the communist revolution led by Fidel Castro against the American sponsored Fulgencio Batista’s regime. The embargo at first did not included food and medicines, however, with the involvement of the Cuban government with the Soviet Union and the consequent missile crisis, in 1962 the embargo extended to all imports from all American allied nations. As of today the embargo is still on, and it will remain as if until the communist dictatorship established, steps down and begins the democratization of the country. Because of the embargo, the  Cuban society is “frozen” in time. The country’s infrastructure and lifestyle of its citizens is the same as it was 50 years ago, and since the American-Cuban remains on hold, the development of the nation will remain stalled for a while. Third and final point, when any country, in this case the United States, interferes in the internal affairs of its peers, it extends its sphere of influence. The sphere of influence is defined as a spatial region or division over which a state has a level of cultural, economic, military, or political exclusivity, accommodating to the interests of powers outside the sphere is the state that controls it. In other words, a country within the sphere of influence of another, more powerful country its subject of changes. These changes, at a time, may seem harmless or even beneficial for the country; however, ultimately will distort the culture, politics, economy and military might. These distortions will be at the convenience of another state that has little to none interest on the other country's wellbeing. The opponents of this point of view might argue that, the interference made by the United States has been done for the greater good. This interventions are seen from the point of view of the others are made in order to maintain peace and safety in the world, to counter menaces that put the world in danger. However, a question comes to mind. Who is saving the world from whom? For when the United States “saves  the world” not only acts on the best interest of him or his allies, but also infringes in the sovereignty of the nation the “saving” is being made . As previously stated a country that has no sovereignty, does not have the ability to provide welfare to it citizens and nation.  Abnegate civilians of any kinds of welfare, is considered a war crime; therefore any action against the sovereignty of a country ca be considered as an act of war.  For several reason, such as the ones previously stated, the United States or any country should not interfere in the internal affairs of another country. For not only affects its sovereignty, development and its citizen’s welfare, also threatens peace. No type of interference can be made in the name of peace, for the only path to peace is not ruling over others but respecting each other. As once a great man said “for in the people as within the nations, the respects to the others ’  rights is peace ” .
