All of this anti-American rhetoric just blows my mind.
So many countries and their would-be ambassadors want to shriek in fury and rage at us. What reasons can they give us for doing so? That we are
arrogant? Not all of us, though we have a right to be. The majority of us are humbled by our daily existence. The thing that makes most of us
humble, intelligent thinking beings... you bash, constantly. The Christian God. You hate our religion and then try to take away that which prevents
us from becoming what you can't stand. Unbelievable.
Quit telling us to wake up. It's time for you to take your own medicine. This goes to everyone wanting to attack us.
1. Every time the US has ever lost a war or battle it has always been for the same reason, and NEVER has it been lack of will or resources or
ability. It is because we have restrained our own military. Think of the wars where we were unleashed, freed from our self-imposed shackles. WWI.
WWII. That's pretty much it. But even I understand the need for those restraints. Those restraints are to protect innocents. Canada, the UK, both
impose the same restrictions on their military. But our enemies don't. They hide behind their women and children, then blame us for their deaths.
This, I have witnessed with my own eyes. I would rather lose a war with a clear conscience than win it and be damned.
2. Given our instant global communication, it's an inevitability that there be a singular world government. With the advent of the internet, the
world has become smaller and smaller. The sovereignty of the major world powers is constantly in question. It's only a matter of time. The change
CAN be peaceful. But it won't be. Our similarities, our loves, our passions have brought us closer, as a race. Our religions are what's going to
end any chance at a peaceful resolution to our differences.
3. You in the rest of the world, who do you see when you watch YOUR television. That's the only place you can get your news. If you think the
internet gives you an unbiased view, immediately check yourself into an asylum cuz you're nuts. So when you see us, what is it that you see that
you hate so much? Our corrupt leaders? Us 'bullying' other countries? Us reveling in everything we have while the rest of the world suffers? Get
real. We know our politicians are corrupt. We do everything we can to rectify it. We are not always successful. We do not bully other countries.
We protect the weak when you would let them die. We defend the helpless when you would allow them to be subjugated.
4. You are using technology that WE developed to get online here. Think about what we've given to the world.
Last, and this is my most important point. If your country, no matter what it was, were being forced into submission by a neighboring country, if you
were promised torture and enslavement. Who would be the first people you called? Us. We wouldn't ask you for anything in return other than the
assistance of your military. We have never stood by and watched freedom be desecrated. We will not fight FOR you, but we will fight WITH you. I've
seen examples of people accusing us of standing by while other countries are demolished from within. If the people will rise up and fight, we will
join you. But fighting to free a people that do not want to be free is a worthless endeavor. I believe this was our mistake in Iraq.
We are, by no means, perfect. Yet you expect us to be. We are the older brother watching after his beloved siblings. We will fight for you. We
will die for you. But we will not stand by and let you abuse the rest of our family. Our goal is to protect, to keep the peace, and sometimes, as
all men do, we fail. We, as a people, do our very best in good faith and in hope. Sometimes, things do not turn out as we would wish. Everyone
wants to point our mistakes out, but no one wants to admit that we've helped in many ways, nearly everyone on the planet. We need to wake up? You
are being fed your information by government run media, through CENSORED channels. That includes the internet. America is the last bastion of
freedom, whether or not you care to admit it. We were born free and we'll die that way. We may have lopsided information, but that information
comes from both sides. Most of us can read between the lines, take both stories and glean the truth using common sense. Before you go around bashing
us, state what country you are from so that I might find how we've helped mold you into what you are today.
We are not perfect as you expect us to be. Holding anyone up to the standard of perfection will always end in a let-down. We do our best, and that
isn't good enough. I'm not lost in the past with dreamy eyes. This is the way I see our country. Unlike you, I can see the failures and accept
them. Learn from them. Please do the same.
