I believe that in our modern world, other countries should intervene to some extant in another country where civilians are being killed during a civil war. To begin with, given the global nature of our modern economy, a single country being at war has long lasting effects for many neighboring countries and trade partners. So it’s in some countries best interests to maintain peace in other countries.

Therefore, countries should try to help each other, especially when innocent people could be hurt from infighting.
