Hello- I am new here, in fact this in my very first post. I would first like to say that it was a very odd scenario that brought me to this website. I
was actually looking at the back of movie and it mentioned something about the Illuminati- having heard of them before I quickly did a google seach
and ATS came up. I found most of the forums completly crazy- save for this one. Now please allow me to make a reply to all the current tpoics about
America world views.
I will first start off by saying that I am an American, born and raised. I am currently contracted over seas, in Iraq, with the DoD. I have traveled
as a Youth Ambassador to Germany, Switzerland, France, and Spain. I have also traveled to Dubai, Sharja, Kuwait, England, and in the next few months I
will be heading out to Africa, if all goes well. In short I have seen many cultures, many governments, many cities, and MANY MANY airports, lol.
What I have learned from all of the cultures that I have studied thus far is that most people do not "hate" Americans as a whole. They do not like
our government, as many of us do not. They see Bush as a war hungry christian fanatic, as do many, who must stop his path of war. You know what? I
agree with them. Being out here in Iraq has diversified my character in the sense that, while I did not agree with our reasons for war, I see that
many of the Iraqi's that I work with wanted liberation from Saddam Hussein. We have, in short, at least granted them freedom from his terror. It is
sad, though, that it took outside military action. Through out the course of history many nations have overthrown their own government and liberated
themselves. For some reason Iraq was not meant for self-liberation.
I will say this about America and her government. We the people of the United States believe that we have an institution implemented in politics that
is flawless. Our belief is that our democracy has created a super power and thus we have rights to act as the "World Police". We actually believe
that our vote is helping put a certain politician in office. Our government, our president, is nothing more than a figure head, a giant human
representative of the United States. We have Bush telling countries that the American people fear their weapons, that we fear for our allies, and that
we fear for our posterity and the posterity of our allies. He lies- I do not fear what weapons North Korea has, nor do I fear what weapons Iraq
had/has, or what weapons Iran has and nor does Bush. Bush and his adminstration cares about the security of America's largest import and by far our
largest expenditure, oil. I fear nothing for the future of oil- it is time for us to learn to stop abusing fossil fuels, and stop polluting the world.
We need to stop building polluting power plants our other countries borders and making our energy their problem. We need to stop going to McDonalds
and investing our time and money in making frachises rich and that American people fatter. And if I read "Welcome to America, now go home" in a
public bathroom one more time I will scream!
The question is not about wether a country likes us as people, but if they like us as a governing tyrant. We control too much- and that is the
problem. To who ever said religion is not at growth in our culture, then you are obviously not gay. Our President was electing on the foundation that
I would never have the right to marry. America is a country of freedom, if you are a white, heterosexual, business, male, republican. Freedom is not
being defended in our wars- over seas nor at home. Our freedoms are being robbed from us blindly. The people that live over seas, in foreign countries
see it, it is sad to say that few see that at home.
I say I am an American by force- for my parents put me there. I fear for my country and its inevitable fall. Just think- I wanted to go to Nepal to
climb Mt. Everst to the morain lake, only to find out that people there are, too, killing us. May the powers at be find me a visa and move me to
France. I am tired of people wanting to kill me because I am an American while I travel abroad, or kill me because I am gay while I live at home.
People have been trying to westernize themselves- when at long it us that should be looking to the East for the security of our future and our
posterity. Of all countries I have traveled to thus far, Dubai, a Middle Eastern Country, has been the most unique in its culture and people.
People do not hate American's as a whole- the hate the institution that people allow to exist that is her government. That hate this government
because of its religious militant point of view. Americans as a people are good, bad, funny, boring, stupid, smart, annoying, and charming. The
government is corrupt, more corrupt than most will ever know. Sorry for the long post.
