I say this thread will be a rip roaring success with support of the I love Putin crowd, The Anti-Anything American crowd
and all the Millions
desperately waiting to immigrate to Russia
Okay, The US reeling from self inflicted wounds I'll agree with especially considering the conduct of the past three administrations. It's a miracle
we've lasted this long.
Still landed on robot on Mars though...
edit on 14-3-2014 by SLAYER69 because: (no reason given)
But will the US Government and NASA reveal ALL of what they find on Mars, or just the selective bits which defeats the purpose of putting a robot
there in the first place ?
For someone to like Putin taking a stand against the US Government, it does give a little pleasure to many out there. Purely because he just playing
their game back at them with the world watching. But that doesn't mean that we then support everything or every decision that Putin makes, and it
doesn't mean that we admire or LOVE him. It's just means that he got a little more respect then what he previously had. His previous actions will be
taken into account, just like it should be when Obama talks.
Is it Anti-American to be tired of the constant double standards from the US Government, and the constant selective memories ? IS it Anti-American to
ask why is it ok for the US Government to bypass International Law when it suits their interests, but then quotes International Law when someone else
does something that doesn't suit, or conflicts with their interests ?
But these days we get called Anti-Semite's just for mentioning the Israeli government in any negative reference, regardless of the facts involved. I
am an Australian, yet I cannot stand what my Government has turned into or represents. But by hating what my Government stands for, does that make me
Anti-Australian, despite being proud of where I come from ?
If the US Government wants to start earning more respect around the world, then it needs to learn very quickly that respect is earned, not just given.
You can't just go around kicking peoples doors in, but then expect to be invited into for coffee the next time around. You can't be one of the worst
offenders, and then take the moral high road and tell other nations what is right or wrong. That is called being a hypocrite, and show me ONE
hypocrite that deserves respect ?
It is this very stance that most people do not like about the US Government. But that doesn't NOT mean we are Anti-American, or that we don't like
America, or the majority of it's citizens.
The US Government is correct in everything that it says about Putin and Russia...........BUT, they are the last country on the planet who has any
right to talk about these issues or judge others on them. That is the point most people miss when making the 'Anti-insert nation here' comments !
I have heard more comments about Putin and Russia from John Kerry then I have from ANYONE from the United Nations. Isn't that were they should be
stepping in, and the very reason that they created ? But I shouldn't say too much, I might get called Anti-United Nations.
