You just rant and rant and rant like you know everything. Have you been to Iraq, I have. How many muslim countries have you really been to. I have
been to four and not always in uniform. I have been called a baby killer and murder in America but never in The UAE or The Kingdom of Bahrain. They
love America there. Sadam killed more innocent people than operation Iraqi freedom did 3 times over maybe we are wearing out our welcom there but if
they don't have a trained army another dictator will set him self right up and they will go back to killing women in the streets in the name of islam
and plotting to kill western society.
As for Japan we did rebuild it and less people died in the two atomic blats than in most land battles in the pacific. It is regretable that it had to
happen but it saved lives. How many people do you think would have died if Japan would have had to be invaded. Then the part you left out is Japan
was rebuilt and their government restored pretty much the way it was before the war except a few amendments about not being able to fight in a war
unless attacked. That is why Japan refused to help with the war on terror the amendments we had the put in provent them from doing it. They are a
world leader and a great ally to any peacefull nation.
Mostly Europeans and Austrailians hate America in my experiance the only people in Asia that really hate us are the ones in the middle east that want
to kill us and crash planes into stuff. If it was not for the bail out America Gave Europe in WW2 they would be speaking German right now and should
be a little kinder when we restore order to places that despratly need it.
No where near 50% of voting age people in America voted for Bush because most don't vote. The reason Obama got elected was because he made people
think they could be part of history for electing the first black guy and most Americans were stupid enough to by in.
Limited Democracy protects rights though it limits choice. We still have more rights than most European countries because if you say want to get rid
of hand guns you cant because a popular vote is not enough to do it. You need way more than 50% to take away things like habius corpus or freedom of
the press here and that protects us. I would rather have someone in office that the rest of the world did not agree with than loose alot of my
About the sufering in Africa and the Middle East I don't pretend to let that bother more than the suffering in my country because it does not. Maybe
America should clean house before giving anymore foreign aid then we would see how bad these places really got.
As for the suffering in Africa the problem is people just send over food and drugs so they can feel good about themselfs. Christians teach them to
read so they can understand the bible and feed them so they will pay attention. You want my World Wide Ecconomic Fix plan.
Contract companies to buid wells, irrigation, grain holding places and other infastructer. College internships that pay for anyone willing to go help
and good pay for contractors. The Africans will be able to feed and protect themselfs the ecconomy will be fixed poverty over everyone can then leave
them alone and mind their own buisness with several problems solved at once.
Sorry about the rant and if I came on too strong sorry I just want to let you know there are 2 sides to your opinion.
