Kids now are far smarter than all previous generations. It's called the flynn effect. I see it in action every day when I teach. The "dumb kids"
I teach are smarter than average kids when I was in school and I teach in the same area I grew up in. I'm constantly amazed how older generations
treat kids. So many kids get called stupid for pointing out logical inconsistencies that it's amazing kids think for themselves at all these
The best part of the ignorance you're all showing in general is that you're even ignorant in specific. George Washington university is one of the
top foreign policy schools in the united States which itself has the finest university system on the planet.
These kids must be smart and active individuals to get into a school like that since competition for top tier (times have changed from when you all
went to college). So right off the bat the school's status means we're dealing with a school of almost entirely above average intelligence
students. On top of that
This school specializes in foreign policy and politics (situated in our nations capital no less).
The way this sounds to me is that some of the least biased, most intelligent people in our country (at a foreign policy focused school) thinks going
to war with ISIS is bad. Not only that, the girl quoted is dead on. How deluded can you be that America is so angelic. We're the only nation on
earth to drop nukes. We dumped dangerous chemicals in bulk in other nations (remember agent Orange?). I read something recently about how Iraq has
nearly 50% rate is infant abnormalities from all the toxic materials we used during the war there (depleted uranium is totally safe right? They put
the word depleted in there). We're the biggest warmonger on the planet by any measurement. Our history is filled with racism and eugenics so much
that we actually were idols of Hitler.
We were the experimental nation trying to find a better way but we took our eye off the ball due to "red fear". We could have been the nation we
always were meant to be if we didn't let our country get taken over by ancient backward thinking power hungry monsters. Take a look at Lindsay
Graham for a solid example.
Long story short the word to describe these kids is naive not stupid but don't worry about it. I know you all stopped caring about leaning a long
time ago. These kids are right, 100% right. Sadly it's too late for their suggestion. The nations response to 9 11 killed our dreams. If we had
responded with grief tempered by compassion and forgiveness (you know those big Christian values dumb Americans think mean be nice to your friends and
family only). Can you imagine if we had taken all the money we wasted on war and homeland security since 9/11/01 and spent it on helping people
around the world especially the middle East maybe we'd on the road to utopia.
America is the bully who punches a kid cause he said something mean and when questioned says "he started it". What is the good parents response? "
"you have to be the bigger man, violence is never the answer ". We make fun of India/Pakistan Israel/Palestine and other countries for living in
the past and fighting wars over ancient disputes but at least they have the excuse of poverty violence and other issues. What excuse does the safest,
strongest and wealthiest nation on planet earth have for their unending campaign of violence?
Going to war with Syria (I mean ISIS, lol what a joke) is just another example of old Europe style balance of power bull# with modern trappings. Open
your mind, do some research, and stop belittling our nations future. You're already destroying their future at least treat them with some dignity.
