I know we've been conditioned to believe our military is fighting for good but I believe the opposite is true.
I never said it was fact did I?
It should be obvious that it's my opinion, I shouldn't have to say it is.
It seems as though you're ignoring the bad we've done in favor of the good, every country has done their fair share of good not just America.
If someone kills somebody then send flowers to their parents, does that negate the murder they committed? I would hope not
Do you believe in today's world America is benefiting the rest of the world or making it safer?
nd I haven't been conditioned...I have seen the good they do, and I am proud they are doing their job's to keep me safe and living the life I have.
It may not be the best life...I know it could be worse.
I implied that it was my opinion, the OP speaks to what my opinion is, if you can't see that then you're being obtuse.
If you didn't know before then you do now, though it should have been obvious to begin with.
Maybe you're right about me excluding the good that America has done, but in my opinion the bad outweighs the good.
If you want I can make a thread outlining what they have done good, but that isn't what this thread is about in particular.
War is murder, maybe you don't think so but I do. That's my opinion, if you don't like it, sorry.
Make us believe that all these conflict s are happening to "keep us safe" It is complete bs.
You really think the powers that be give a crap about a soldier who dies in conflict. You really think they give it a minute thought when they are not acting in front of a camera?
It's all bs
But like I said, people still believe this bs. And that is the real sad part of all this. That a small percentage of people ( governments/leaders) can have such a hold on the rest of the population
That was the point of my OP, to state my opinion. If you couldn't grasp that it was my opinion then that's not my fault, you are just being obtuse.
If anything, America's government and military are the greatest threat to world peace, not Iran. Why you ask? Two words:

Just to start this off, I am an American, I have no bias against America other than my knowledge of the war crimes committed by America in the past. Just throwing that out there before people come in calling me a commie or whatever the case may be.
It seems as though America feels the need to be the international police force when it comes to nuclear weapons. We try to prevent other countries from making them all the while we have the biggest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world. Seems as though we want our cake and to eat it too, for lack of a better term. I'd say we're a bunch of hypocrites for trying to regulate other people's resources while we do whatever we want with ours.
Why do we feel the need to try and stop Iran from building a nuke? Because apparently if they build one they'll use it and it'll be the end of the world. This is a bunch of baloney and fear mongering on the part of both the Israeli and American governments. Iran is not going to build a nuke, and even if they did who are we to stop them? Are we somehow harbingers of peace and justice that we get to dictate who has certain weapons and who doesn't? I think not. If anything, America's government and military are the greatest threat to world peace, not Iran. Why you ask? Two words:
Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
We are the only country in history to have ever used atomic bombs on another country, the ONLY one. So how can we claim that someone else is a greater threat than us? We dropped two atomic bombs on Japan, not caring who was within the blast radius. Women and children, old and young were battle fodder for our government, people who had no part in the war. We committed the worst terrorist attack in history in my opinion. For what? To prove a point. What point? Mess with us and get an atomic bomb dropped on your citizens, we don't care who they are or what walk of life they are from.
This is what America did to the Japanese people. People who had no part in the attack on Pearl Harbor. People who had no part in the war whatsoever. America punished generations of Japanese citizens in order to prove that we had the biggest dick in the world so to speak. People are still being born with deformities in the areas that the bombs were dropped. America's decision to drop those bombs was one of the greatest atrocities ever committed in my opinion. Not only did it kill people at the time of them being dropped, it punished those who came afterward as well. That is a tragedy.
So how can we as the only country to ever drop an atomic bomb on another country claim to be harbingers of peace? How can we claim that any other country other than our own is a greater threat to the world?
How long has America been at war? Ever since our country was founded: from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War to WWI to WW2 to Vietnam to the Gulf War to Afghanistan to Iraq and other wars in-between, we as a nation have been warring with ourselves and others ever since we became a nation. Many of those wars predicated by lies, disinformation, and false flags.
We are a country built on war and genocide, we spend more on our military than China, Russia, the United Kingdom, Japan, France, Saudi Arabia, India, Germany, Italy, and Brazil combined. Why is that? Because we are war mongers, there is no doubt about it.
Iran or ISIS the greatest threat to world peace? Pffff, they're nothing compared to America.
Sad thing is, most Americans will never admit this because they have been brainwashed into believing we're the greatest and most free country in the world and that being patriotic toward this war mongering country is somehow noble. It's not noble and to be patriotic toward America is to be a patriot of war and genocide in my opinion.
I'm sure I'll get a lot of hate for this post but I know it to be true. America is nothing like what Americans think. We are the greatest threat to world peace, bar none. History and current events prove that in my opinion.
