I will not apologize to China for one thing that the United States of America does. We have made mistakes in our path such as torture, suppression of
equal rights, placed ethnic groups in camps, and torture terrorists. We are not and never have been a perfect nation but what has made the USA so
special is that we find an answer to all of these crimes and we solve them without mass violence or martial law or following some leader to our
The USA is a special nation for us always upholding our liberty, constitution, and freedom. People from across the world and even some here do not

and they know it.
While I agree somewhat with the sentiment of not apologizing to a dictatorial regime, you are completely incorrect in many assertions you make about
your "Great" country.
You talk about your freedom and liberty, yet you neglect the to consider the wiretapping, the Patriot Act and the countless examples of the freedoms
of American citizens being trodden on by both your federal government and regional leadership.
We consistently see examples of American dictatorship against it's own people. Farmers are controlled and restricted. Small farming communities and
charitable groups have been attacked by state governments in coalition with corporate interests. Protests are met with sound cannons and batons.
Students have been attacked and beaten on their own campus.
You (and I) live under an "illusion" of freedom. We live in countries where those with power and wealth rule the game, and we play along, merely
pawns needed to line their pockets. They allow freedoms when it suits them, and to prevent an uprising.
So, please, before you condemn others for their opinions while glorifying your own nation, get the facts together and form a true picture.
Most of us a fed up with propaganda, whether it comes from a government or an individual.
