That's the thing, wutone. Americans seems to believe that the rest of the world wants them to stick thier noses in and "solve everyones problems".
I'm not American and I can tell you that from everything I've read in anything that isn't American, the rest of the world wants America to stay out
of it's affairs, not come in and try to solve everyone else's problems by Americas standards. That's generally when things get all mucked up.
But this American wants to stay out of people's affairs also. This American is tired of opening his wallet for some problem half a world away. This
American isn't alone with that sentiment.
The US government is the one's that want to solve everyone's problems. The American government is just a piece and a tool of the international
elite. When the problems go down, call the Americans. And it's not just for military affairs. All I ever hear is "America needs to do this, America
needs to do that, America needs to take action, Americans need to sacrifice more, blahblah" Then comes Uncle Sam to the "rescue" fully funded by
I don't feel like spending one red cent to cure AIDS in Africa when people there just F*** around, I don't feel like curbing my carbon when the
Chinese are spewing theirs, I don't feel like seeing any more Americans die for a fight that shouldn't be ours, I don't feel like paying huge
amounts of money for bases in Europe when they won't even lift a finger for themselves, and I don't feel like being the cure for global poverty
and.................I can do this forever.
For the world that hates the U.S. because we aren't solving "global warming" or any international issue, do it yourselves.
