Wake Up Call!

Let's go back to the TOPIC of this THREAD, shall we?

Thanks mister dbates!

Let check some more Articles supporting the first Post:


US media covers up American war crimes in Iraq

Every day, US military forces in Iraq are attacking civilian populations in a calculated effort to drown a growing popular insurgency in blood. But one would hardly know the dimensions or brutality of the atrocities being carried out in the name of the American people from the sparse and sanitized coverage provided by the major press and broadcast outlets that purport to disseminate “the news.”

Why is the US media blacking out documentary on war crimes in Afghanistan?

Massacre in Mazar, a documentary by Irish director Jamie Doran, was screened last week before select audiences in Europe. The film documents events following the November 21, 2001 fall of Konduz, the Taliban’s last stronghold in northern Afghanistan (Afghan war documentary charges US with mass killings of POWs)

The film presents powerful testimony from Afghan witnesses that US troops collaborated in the torture and killings of thousands of Taliban prisoners near Mazar-i-Sharif. The film, which has prompted demands for an international commission of inquiry on war crimes in Afghanistan, received widespread coverage in the European press, with major stories in the Guardian, Le Monde, Suddeutsche Zeitung, Die Welt and other papers.

This major story, however, has received virtually no coverage in US newspapers or on network or cable television. Aside from stories on some alternative Internet publications, and a June 16 article on Salon.com, the story has been essentially blacked out in the US.

Corporate Media Ignores US Hypocrisy on War Crimes

During the first week of December 03, US corporate media reported that American forensic teams are working to document some 41 mass graves in Iraq to support future war crime tribunals in that country. Broadly covered in the media, as well, was the conviction of General Stanislav Galic by a UN tribunal for war crimes committed by Bosnian Serb troops under his command during the siege of Sarajevo in 1992-94.

These stories show how corporate media likes to give the impression that the US government is working diligently to root out evil doers around the world and to build democracy and freedom. This theme is part of a core ideological message in support of our recent wars on Panama, Serbia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Governmental spin transmitted by a willing US media establishes simplistic mythologies of good vs. evil often leaving out historical context, special transnational corporate interests, and prior strategic relationships with the dreaded evil ones.

The hypocrisy of US policy and corporate media complicity is evident in the coverage of Donald Rumsfeld's stop over in Mazar-e Sharif Afghanistan December 4 to meet with regional warlord and mass killer General Abdul Rashid Dostum and his rival General Ustad Atta Mohammed. Rumsfeld was there to finalize a deal with the warlords to begin the decommissioning of their military forces in exchange for millions of dollars in international aid and increased power in the central Afghan government.

Covering up US war crimes

The US mass media “reports”, the style, content and especially the language, echo their Nazi predecessors of 70 years ago to an uncanny degree. Coincidence? Of course! In both instances we have imperialist armies conquering countries, levelling cities and slaughtering civilians — and the mass media, private in form, state appendages in practice, disseminate the most outrageous lies, in defense and praise of the conquering “storm troopers” — call them SS or marines.

Both in Nazi Germany and contemporary US, we are told by the mass media that the invading armies are “freeing the country” of “foreign fighters” and “armed terrorists”, who are preventing “the people” from going about their everyday lives. Yet we know that of the 1000 prisoners there are only four foreigners (three Iranians and one Arab); Iraqi hospitals report less than 10% of casualties are foreign fighters. In other words, over 90% of the fighters are Iraqis — most of whom were born, educated and raised families in the cities in which they are fighting.

Like the Nazi media, the major US radio and TV networks only report what they call “military casualties” — failing to report the civilians killed since the war started and the thousands of women and children killed and wounded since the assault on Fallujah began.

Like in Nazi Germany, the US mass media feature unconfirmed reports by the US military of the bloody murders, beheadings and kidnappings “by the foreign terrorists”. The unconditional support of Nazi/US mass media for the killing fields is best captured in their reports of the massive bombing of densely populated city districts. For the US network NBC, the dropping of 500-pound bombs in the city of Fallujah is described as targeting an “insurgent tunnel network in the city”. And the houses, markets, stores — the mothers and children above those tunnels — vaporised into “pink mist”, their existence never acknowledged by the leading reporters and broadcasters.

Prosecute US Corporate Media Whores For War Crimes

The ongoing US aggression in the Middle East raises the most serious
questions about the role of the mass media in modern society. In the
period leading up to the invasion, the American [corporate] media
uncritically advanced the Bush Administration's arguments, rooted in
lies, distortions and half-truths, for an attack on Iraq. It
virtually excluded all critical viewpoints, to the point of blacking
out news of mass anti-war demonstrations and any other facts that
contradicted the propaganda from the White House and Pentagon.

Media Complicity In War Crimes

"Stupidity, outrage, vanity, cruelty, iniquity, bad faith, falsehood - we fail to see the whole array when it is facing in the same direction as we." (Jean Rostand)

On February 13, The World Tribunal on Iraq (WTI), an international peoples' initiative, declared much of the Western media guilty of deception and incitement to violence in its reporting on Iraq. The tribunal, meeting in Rome, made its pronouncement after taking testimony from independent journalists, media professors, activists, and a member of the European Parliament.

The panel of WTI judges noted that the United States and British governments had deliberately impeded the work of journalists and knowingly spread lies and disinformation. But the panel also accused the Western corporate media of filtering and suppressing the truth. The tribunal described how journalists had violated article six of the Nuremberg Tribunal which states:

"Leaders, organisers, instigators and accomplices participating in the formulation or execution of a common plan or conspiracy to commit any of the foregoing crimes (crimes against peace, war crimes and crimes against humanity) are responsible for all acts performed by any persons in execution of such a plan." ('Media Held Guilty of Deception,' Inter Press Service, February 14, 2005)

As for the Solution:

FIRST STEP,
would be to STOP LYING. That's a Nice start. But it wont Happen anyway, so I guess we will have to Wait for the TRUTH to come out. Because it will; one way or the Other.


We must remember that in time of war what is said on the enemy's side of the front is always propaganda, and what is said on our side of the front is truth and righteousness, the cause of humanity and a crusade for peace.
Walter Lippmann


We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know about and shouldn't. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.
Katharine Graham, Washington Post owner speaking at CIA's Langley, Virginia headquarters in 1988


In [many cases], the U.S. and other western news media depend on the military for information.... And when the information that military officers provide to the public is part of a process that generates propaganda and places a high value on deceit, deception and denial, then truth is indeed likely to be high on the casualty list.
William M. Arkin, Media principles: Killed by friendly fire in US infowar

Since war is particularly unpleasant, military discourse is full of euphemisms. In the 1940's, America changed the name of the War Department to the Department of Defense. Under the Reagan Administration, the MX-Missile was renamed “The Peacekeeper.” During war-time, civilian casualties are referred to as “collateral damage,” and the word “liquidation” is used as a synonym for “murder.”
Dr. Aaron Delwiche, Propaganda Analysis, Propaganda Critic Web site, School of Communications, Washington University


It is easier to dominate someone if they are UNAWARE of being dominated. Colonised and colonisers both know that domination is not just based on physical supremacy. Control of hearts and minds follows military conquest. Which is why any empire that wants to last must capture the souls of its subjects.
Ignacio Ramonet, The control of pleasure, Le Monde diplomatique

I notice you keep bringing up the geneva conventions, the laws of war and varios other articles defining how war and human rights should be conducted...

Now my question is this...Do you believe in these laws?

What does it Matter what I belive in?

These Laws were Written for a Certain Purpose - so that EVERYBODY can Enjoy the same Rights and Priviledges, so that nobody is "Left Behind". They were written in order to bring some Sanity and Humanity to this World, torn apart by MANY Wars. What would happen, if the Cops would not follow the Criminal Law in the Wolrd we have today? There would be a Complete Anarchy! So, how can the US (along with UK) tell the Entire World what to do, while they are breaking the Same Law, which they are suppoesd to Uphold? Isn't that a little bit Hypocritical? Why would the World Listen to them anyway - they are on the same level as the Criminals they are hunting.

Does it happen? No it doesnt, why? Because to enforce these rules we need to use force. Which btw is mostly unpopular.


They were written in order to bring some Sanity and Humanity to this World, torn apart by MANY Wars.

By wars? They are torn apart in the name of "truth" , "freedom" and "liberty" .



What would happen, if the Cops would not follow the Criminal Law in the Wolrd we have today?

So your now changing the topic to a subject of laws, I am asking about the "truth" not the laws.



So, how can the US (along with UK) tell the Entire World what to do, while they are breaking the Same Law, which they are suppoesd to Uphold?

How can we? We do it because we think its whats needed to protect ourselves, our people, the world and our allies Example...would you allow a police officer to speed to stop an armed subject who has just shot a fellow unarmed police officer in cold blood while he tried to stop the subject?

The above situation is just one example of why rules must sometimes be broken.




Isn't that a little bit Hypocritical?

Isnt complaining about problems yet causing some of them?

No....if we where on the same level the iraq war would have been much diffrent....

How come I never see anyone question the sources Souljah is using there. Greenleft.org,WSWS.org(world socialist website), projectcensored.org, informationclearinghouse.org.

I mean cmon, read the headlines on the info clearing house page.
www.informationclearinghouse.info...
One says the plan for hte US is to rule the world, and another says he made Intel fit Iraq police(something 2 congressional panels found to be not true)

greenleft and world socialist website's names speak for themselves. Cmon folks, am I the only one looking for things like this. Checking sources is something that is important to make sure we are getting accurate information and not someones agenda.

Alfred North Whitehead,
Tell me what "truth" do you believe?

My Dear Friend,
obviously you know Nothing about the War, Propaganda and the Media's Role here. Propaganda serves to JUSTIFY the War at all costs - every conflict is fought on at least two grounds: the Battlefield and the Minds of the people via propaganda. The Good guys and the Bad guys can often both be guilty of misleading their people with Distortions, Exaggerations, Subjectivity, Inaccuracy and even Fabrications, in order to receive Support and a sense of legitimacy.



No matter how it is spread, propaganda comes in four basic varieties, said Arthur Siegel, social science professor at York University in Toronto, whose 1996 book Radio Canada International examines World War II and Cold War propaganda.

“The first level is the Big Lie, adapted by Hitler and Stalin. The state-controlled Egyptian press has been spreading a Big Lie, saying the World Trade Center was attacked by Israel to embarrass Arabs,” said Siegel.

“The second layer says, ‘It doesn't have to be the truth, so long as it's plausible.’

“The third strategy is to tell the truth but withhold the other side's point of view.

“The fourth and most productive is to tell the truth, the good and the bad, the losses and the gains.

“Governments in Western society take the last three steps. They avoid the Big Lie, which nobody here will swallow,” Siegel said.


Beth Gillin, U.S. intensifies the war of words

Military control of Information during war time is also a major contributing factor to propaganda, especially when the media go along with it without question. The military recognizes the values of media and information control very well.

Award-winning investigative journalist, Phillip Knightley, in an article for the British paper, The Guardian also points out four stages in preparing a nation for war:
  • The crisis
    The reporting of a crisis which negotiations appear unable to resolve. Politicians, while calling for diplomacy, warn of military retaliation. The media reports this as “We're on the brink of war”, or “War is inevitable”, etc.

  • The demonisation of the enemy's leader
    Comparing the leader with Hitler is a good start because of the instant images that Hitler's name provokes.

  • The demonisation of the enemy as individuals
    For example, to suggest the enemy is insane.

  • Atrocities
    Even making up stories to whip up and strengthen emotional reactions.

SO,
What makes you THINK that the Goverments of US and UK are Telling the TRUTH this time?

For you the ACCURATE Information is the CORPORATE Media ones, huh?
Trust me, they have a Much BIGGER Agenda then Me.
But, the Good thing about their Propaganda is, that the Subjects, which are under their Infulence do not know about it!

I use .edu, some .orgs(as some are sketchy, usually just global security and wiki, although I dont trust all info I recieve from there), and .gov sites. Unless I'm posting a news story which I have yet to do. These sites are reliable and no one has questioned thier credibility. So I guess my answer to your question is no, I dont use media sites. The point is we are here to promote knowledge and facts, not agendas.

Remember, when you assume, you make an ass out of you not me.

No... I would rather not hear him spread more lies and misinformation about my country. Big difference there in my book. Look where he gets his information from...

And yes... That is a smart reaction because it is true!
Sorry if I don't put it as eloquently as some posters on this site. But the fact is... The guy has his head made up to think one way... and thats the way he is going to think. He hates the U.S. and therefore goes out of his way to find the most biased, hate-filled, and slanderous crap he can on the internet...

I am critical about the war in Iraq... Yet I still have some sanity left to see it for what it really is.

Ofcourse - again it is the Liberal-Terrorist-Lovers that are making this war "Look Bad"; the fact that it is going down the Sink, and that since the start of the War on Terrorism, there have been an INCREASING number of terrorist attacks, nobody even bothers.

Yes, it is War and the first Casualty is the Truth.

Again you have been victorious in diverting the topic of this thread to the Author and his "Agenda". The majority people just will not belive anything I post, just because it is from Me. Ignorant? Open Minded? You choose.

Does anybody have any comments regarding the news articles provided Above in the White Frames?

Ah yes, when in doubt compare to Hitler. which strikes me as odd since he is so admired in the Middle East for his efforts on helping rid the world of the nasty evil zionist occupiers of the Holy Land. Seriously, do you honestly believe that the American media which bears no love for the current administration would sit on a story of this magnatude? Not for a second would they, I mean really, CBS tried fake documents in the lead up to the election, remember those?
But that doesn't fit your hate-filled anti-americanism, does it?

No?
How about all the good thigns happeneing in iraq? Are they ever shown by the media? No is the answer.
What about when the RFA Ship in the caribian along with US coastguard stopped drug smugglers and caught over 1 million pounds worth of coke?
Did that make "front page news"?
Dont you dare tell me I know nothing of propaganda and the media.


Propaganda serves to JUSTIFY the War at all costs - every conflict is fought on at least two grounds: the Battlefield and the Minds of the people via propaganda.

Well done you've explained what ONE use of propaganda is about, how about the other propaganda against war?


The Good guys and the Bad guys can often both be guilty of misleading their people with Distortions, Exaggerations, Subjectivity, Inaccuracy and even Fabrications, in order to receive Support and a sense of legitimacy.

Good guys? Bad guys?
In war there are netheir!
Onlyv you and the men next to you are the good guys, the bad guys are who YOU percieve and there are no even drawn lines to define them.


Give a rest with the qoutes, we can play a qoutes war all day and night.



Military control of Information during war time is also a major contributing factor to propaganda, especially when the media go along with it without question. The military recognizes the values of media and information control very well.

Yes and not just the military, the terrorists, freedom fighter, rebels, conspiricy theorists and political parties use the media and information to control the war. See majics podcast.





What makes you THINK that the Goverments of US and UK are Telling the TRUTH this time?

What makes me think they are telling the truth about the war?
I think they are telling the truth about the war because I trust them a hell of a lot more than I trust the insurgents.

Tell me, does the iraqi insurgency conduct propaganda?
Yes it does is the answer, yet.....there are no threads about that on ATS at all...

Does the iraqi "resisitance" conduct warcrimes?
Yes it does is the answer yet....the threads that are posted about it recieve little or no coverage OR are debunked as pro coalition propaganda...

Does the iraqi insurgency use hostages?

Yes it does , the threads that are about this funnel thier anger not at the kidnappers but the governments themselves, the terrorists have already won that part of the battle thanks to peopel "proving" the government is wrong and shameful yet no stories are made about the peopole who provide this information nor are there stories about the people who conduct these kinds of operations.

Well done you've explained what ONE use of propaganda is about, how about the other propaganda against war?

Well - one thing is for certain: when there are no Wars, even the Anti-War propaganda is without Job. See, Corporate Media are all the same in essence: liberal, republican - whatever; they both FEED Lies to the People, there are no exceptions; both are Media Whores and will report what is good for their RATINGS and good for the Profit. The Independant Media is IMHO the only one who counts here - because frankly, they got nothing to loose if the War stops or goes on forever - they will still be around, reporting what they have actually SEEN, and not what they Want you to SEE.

Onlyv you and the men next to you are the good guys, the bad guys are who YOU percieve and there are no even drawn lines to define them.

If you haven't noticed, there are Good vs. Bad in this War also. Basicly it is a matter of Perspective, yet again. The Coalition is out there to Fight the Bad Terrorists - and the Insurgents are out there to Fight the Bad Invaders.



Give a rest with the qoutes, we can play a qoutes war all day and night.

You wanna?




Yes and not just the military, the terrorists, freedom fighter, rebels, conspiricy theorists and political parties use the media and information to control the war. See majics podcast.

Are you saying that I "Control" the War?

The Question here is, WHO has MORE money to Conduct a BETTER and More Sofisticated Propaganda War here?

The US ARMY?

The Iraqi Insurgents?

The Independant Media?

The Corporate Media?

Independant Individuals?



What makes me think they are telling the truth about the war?
I think they are telling the truth about the war because I trust them a hell of a lot more than I trust the insurgents.

See? You really do not have a Clue about War, Propaganda and Media.

The Army HAS to Lie in order to maintain the Peoples support of the War.

That is why they have Information Officers.

That is why they have PsyOps.

That is why they have Propaganda Officers.



Tell me, does the iraqi insurgency conduct propaganda?
Yes it does is the answer, yet.....there are no threads about that on ATS at all...

Sure they do - But compare their Puny Propaganda to the US Military/Corporate Media Combo, and their little effort seems worthless in the vast information warfare that they are fighting against. The Middle East is Far away when looking at it from your TV or your computer Monitor - and the Information that gets out of this Zone is Mainly controlled by the Military/Corporate media combo - the independant journalists are doing their best in this warzone, and often get killed in order to get their story. Embedded journalists with the Pentagon do not get killed - they just get THEIR side of the story.



Does the iraqi "resisitance" conduct warcrimes?
Yes it does is the answer yet....the threads that are posted about it recieve little or no coverage OR are debunked as pro coalition propaganda...

Oh Please!
The Media are doing a Damn Fine Job Demonizing the Iraqi Insurgency.
It is the other way around - you do not hear News, such as is the first post of this thread from the Guardian - very often. The Coalition is the Bastion of Liberty, Democracy and TRUTH; everything else are LIES!

"demonizing the insurgents". Yes and with good reason. These oh, so glorious and brave insurgents drive explosive-laden vehicles into the midst of crowds of children getting candy from soldiers, or into crowded marketplaces, or to the front of schools for girls and set them off. But there is no good guys or bad guys here, huh? Whatever. Sometimes it is black and white., good versus evil, etc..., and no amount of links to anti-war, anti-american websites, and news sources is going to change that. I don't expect that my little post here will change minds, but gotta try.

If you hadnt noticed my post just said that.



You wanna?


No I have better things to do like passing my officer cadetship.



Are you saying that I "Control" the War?

Depends what "war" you mean but no you simply add to the firepower.


The Question here is, WHO has MORE money to Conduct a BETTER and More Sofisticated Propaganda War here?

The insurgents since they can play the wounded oppressd people position while the coalition is restricted to playing down the "truth and freedom" position, they cant use the media too much because the media doesnt trust them.


The US ARMY?

You and the bloody army, god sake man think out side your box.
There are 3 diffrent services!


The Iraqi Insurgents?

The Independant Media?

The Corporate Media?

Independant Individuals?

Who are these "independants"?
Your telling me they dont voice opinions?
Your telling me they dont have an agenda?
I find that VERY hard to believe.



See? You really do not have a Clue about War, Propaganda and Media.

I dont gee wow and what should make me trust you?
Or trust anyone?
Thats paranioa.


The Army HAS to Lie in order to maintain the Peoples support of the War.

The army has 0 lies to maintain support, why? Because thats not the army's job.
The governments job is that, oh and btw if your wondering there is a unit designed for "hearts and minds" , its a tri service made up of part timers.


That is why they have Information Officers.

They dont conduct H+M warfare...


That is why they have PsyOps.

No thats to destroy the enemy's ability to fight.


That is why they have Propaganda Officers.

They have no propaganda officers, thats nazi germany and the soviet forces.



Sure they do

Thank you for telling the truth!
Now the better question:
Why are you not reporting this if you hate lies and the truth being distorted?
Is this possibly because you have an agenda?





Oh Please!
The Media are doing a Damn Fine Job Demonizing the Iraqi Insurgency.
It is the other way around - you do not hear News, such as is the first post of this thread from the Guardian - very often. The Coalition is the Bastion of Liberty, Democracy and TRUTH; everything else are LIES!

Oh so your now avoiding the question?
I thought you hated lies and wanted the truth?
Well I have a qoute for you!

"You want the truth? You cant handle the truth!"
I put it to you and ATS that YOU , soljah , cant accept the fact that the iraqi insurgency conducts and fights JUST AS BAD as the coalition, the coalition has done wrong I accept that but they do so by accident and not by choice, heres another question for you?

Can you say the same for the insurgency?

DW out....

I don't Understand...

The INSURGENTS have More Money?!?



The Insurgents come from Strictly Sunni Iraqis, which live on a Land WITHOUT any Oil or any other Income, that would MAKE THEM, Rich and full of Money. All they have in the Sunni Triangle are Endless Weapons and Ammunitions Dumps.



You and the bloody army, god sake man think out side your box.
There are 3 diffrent services!

There are?

It is all the Same to me.

They all Use Weapons and the All are Trained to Kill when Ordered.

What is the BIG DIFFERENCE then?



I dont gee wow and what should make me trust you?
Or trust anyone?
Thats paranioa.

You can Trust me.




The army has 0 lies to maintain support, why? Because thats not the army's job. The governments job is that, oh and btw if your wondering there is a unit designed for "hearts and minds" , its a tri service made up of part timers.

Errr... The Military IS a part of the Goverment, thats why there is a Man called the Secretary of Defence - so when HE LIES, he is LYING for the Goverment and the Army combined!



They have no propaganda officers, thats nazi germany and the soviet forces.

Ofcourse there are Propaganda Officers!

You just don't see them very often - what do you call then Intelligence Officers in the Army Intel, whos job are the Propaganda Activites?



Thank you for telling the truth!
Now the better question:
Why are you not reporting this if you hate lies and the truth being distorted?
Is this possibly because you have an agenda?

What did I write in my Previous Post?

Their Little Propaganda is NOTHING compared to the Mighty US and their Corporate Media/Military Industry Brainwashing Machine.

Now tell me:

Aren't you UPSET about the BIG LIES that US Goverment used to Invade Iraq? Becaues they sure did LIE to You and to all of us. But that is not BOTHERING you either.



Oh so your now avoiding the question?
I thought you hated lies and wanted the truth?
Well I have a qoute for you!
"You want the truth? You cant handle the truth!"

You Giving me Quotes from Hollywood Movies?



Yea, I am scared of Colonel Nathan R. Jessep!

If you remember that Movie correctly, when the Colonel was shouting that Fact he also REVEALED his true Self and with it, revealed how HE Authorized torture and abuse of the US Marines at Guantanamo.

Ironic isn't it'





I put it to you and ATS that YOU , soljah , cant accept the fact that the iraqi insurgency conducts and fights JUST AS BAD as the coalition, the coalition has done wrong I accept that but they do so by accident and not by choice, heres another question for you?

Can you say the same for the insurgency?

For Once, you could learn to write my NAME and SPELL it correctly - because that only shows the ammount of Time and Respect given to this Post and given to Me.

But, you still don't get it, in all the numerous posts with endless quotes we had. Again, how can there be PEACE without JUSTICE? If the Coalition troops roam around Iraq doing what they want, where they want to, that is not Liberation, but an OCCUPATION - and every Occupation results in RESISTANCE. The Coalition have armed and equipped TWO sides of this Conflict and have Demoized the Third party - the result will be nothing else but a Civil War if this Scenario goes on.

And PLEASE spare me the talk, that the Coalition has done Wrong IN ACCIDENTS ONLY! When Coalition kills Civilans that is called Friendly Fire or Collateral Damage - sorry, you should not be there in the first place! But when the Insurgents target US forces, while they surround themselves with Children, to give them Candy in a WARZONE, that is A-OKEY! An ACCIDENT! SORRY! WE DID NOT KNOW! WE ARE SORRY!

Hey - buts thats their Problem, right? If they DIE on daily basis because of Severe Malnutrition, thats all Fine. It's their Fault anyway - why don't they get a Decent Job?

Again with the hystrionics!

I have never said anything of that sort. I merely said that their can be no comparision made between a person from the thrird world and person from America in terms of purchasing power. Everything else is merely your hate that you want to project onto others.
It is not a crime to be richer than the poorest poor in the world especially when you have earned every cent on your own merit.



Thats why we have a GLOBAL Warming Effect - see if you Effect a BIG Ocean such as Atlantic or Pacific, you put the Delicate Natural Balance out of balance, thus creating a Worldwide BUTTERFLY Effect.

I dont see how this has anything to do with the topic !



As long as you have drive your BIG American Cars, to go and eat in your BIG American Drive-Ins, and you go in your BIG Americna Wal-Marts - SCREW THE REST!

Again your hate is taking over!
To be true, Americans are the most generous people on the planet!


America was founded on 3 Things: GUNS, MONEY and POWER. And those 3 are their Main Export since.

apart from your raging anti-americanism you can see nothing else.
The statement above is proof of this.
One wonders where the lightbuld, the PC, the TV etc all came from ??
Another point is that you have said that we export only Guns, Money and power. Apart from the guns the other two things in your own admission are good for the developing world.
How can you say that the US is selfcentered and yet state a few statements later that the US only exports money ??
This proves that these statements are nothing more than the rants of hatred that have deviated wildly from reason.
