It just never ceases to amaze me that American policy continues to dictate pissing off the rest of the world. We are supposed to be in a glorious age of Peace and Understanding and Compassion for our neighbours, yet a person cannot turn around without hearing about Cheney or Rummy or Hedge mandating policies which adversely affect the rest of the world.

A speech by Vice President Dick Cheney strongly critical of the Kremlin marks the start of a new Cold War that could drive Moscow away from its new-found Western allies, the Russian press said on Friday.

In shocked reaction to the harshest U.S. criticism of Moscow for years, commentators said Washington had created an anti-Russian cordon of Western-aligned states stretching from the Baltic almost to the Caspian Sea.

Truly, the real madmen in this world are not Al-Queada or muslim extremists. It is apparent that current US administration does not advocate Peace of any kind, anywhere and requires some sort of conflict in order to justify its existence, irregardless of the human suffering and consequences.
The definition of a SOCIOPATH is as follows:
also called Character Disorder, mental disorder that is marked by deeply ingrained and lasting patterns of inflexible, maladaptive, or antisocial behaviour. A personality disorder is an accentuation of one or more personality traits to the point that the trait significantly impairs an individual's social or occupational functioning.
Hmmmmm....
What is missing is a clear, unerring vision of what the world looks like with the current US administration. If there were some apprent thoughts expressed about where they were heading through this quagmire, it would be far easier for citizens to lend support and feel good about themselves. When our leaders offer no explanation, or guiding principles behind their actions it becomes a dangerous situation while their people become fearful and distrustful, emotions merely reflected back from their "elected" officials.

Truly, it is the Bush adminstration sending out suicide bomber, sawing captured prisoners' heads off, shooting out of mosques, burning down buildings and preaching murder because a cartoon image of its prophet was drawn in a news paper...wait...I'm wrong? That doesn't matter, in a day and age like this, why should we just let Cheney run rampant criticising another country! I mean, obviously criticism should be outlawed.

This is the kind of double talk as an american I'm so used to hearing from other people from around the world. Why doesn't america stand up for human rights? Why does america go around putting its nose in other nations business? We are constantly criticized for one action or for not performing another or what have you. We are just like every other nation we pursue our own interests. However I think our interests are not opposed to the interests of the rest of the free-world. Quite the contrary our interests run hand in hand with the democratic nations on this planet.


The main difference between the US and the rest of the world is we are willing now to confront the issues facing the world. Regardless of international opinion. The facts are the rest of the world is is pursueing their own interests as well and america bashing is always a popular diversion for a governments failed policies or an excuse for a despotic leader to either increase a nations already harsh and repressive laws or reverse decades of progress regarding the development of democratic institutions under the guise of protecting themselves from yankee imperialism.

Two points to raise here.

1) Iraq & Afghanistan pre-US invasion = No suicide bombers, no kidnappings, no mosque destruction, no massacres by US marines.
Iraq & Afghanistan post-US invasion = all of the above.

Coincidence?

2) I love the fact that you find it acceptable for your government officials to run there mouth off criticising all and sundry abroad. Then heaven forbid some Johnny Foriegner or even worse John Q. American Public should comment on issues in the US.

Hypocrisy?

Cheers
