I love our country, and I am a veteran of Iraqi freedom, but I am ashamed at the hypocrisy that our nation exhibits. We can have nuclear weapons but
anyone we disagree with cannot. We applaud ourselves for our freedom of speech, but trash a man before he can ever gets his chance to speak. We
accuse people of being terrorists, but we in fact committed the most horrific act of terrorism in world history by dropping the bombs on Hiroshima and

dictatorships. The police is brutal and oppressive. The president dont believe in the constitution and has a paranoid view of the world and
And these guys are sitting on nuclear weapons, while also putting weapons in space.
What it comes down to is that every super power as well as the middle east countries are just as bad. USA manages to cover up its deeds around the
world by using CIA and other covert agencies, but they are doing the same things the classic "terrorists" or freedom fighters are doing all over the
Im not a religious guy, but Jesus had it right when he said "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone".
