I doubt by now there could possibly be any sort of majority here that feels America is anything similar to what we once were. I feel its time to get
back to what we were.... but I have a real fear with facts to back it up.
We have no more industry. We have a pathetic amount of token exports. We have nothing to offer the international community anymore by design I
believe.No real food production and crazy regulations. Our economy is crashing. We DO have bodies though.. and weaponry. WHat we have to offer the
international community is being the real dog of war. Im sure the kiddies get a thrill out of that,but I dont like the trend toward being the world's
mercenary. Its foolish to believe we have made these decisions for war on our own. These things are with the blessing of certain powers within the
international community.. its no conspiracy. How do we get our economy back on track?? War. How do we maintain world dominance.. not by being a
benevolent democracy, industry or prosperity.... some idiots choose war, fear, oppressive dominance.
I noticed in the wikileaks info that several countries were urging us to attack certain other countries. Im sure others of you have noticed this.
Saudi and Israel whining about Iran and China whining about NK to the US. ETC... DOnt you find this just a little disturbing? Afghanistan doesnt want
us there and prefers the Taliban supposedly... but our illustrious leader just now sent 30K more troops for a surge in the country? Can you fathom
what is being spoken of if these things were spoken about in less than TS cables and in the media?
NOTHING thats been done since 9/11 passes the smell test .. for ANY of the countries involved including Canada and the UK. Its been used as the
catalyst for most of the garbage we;ve pulled out of the bag since then.
I dont even know if we the people have any recourse anymore.. but I guess we wil soon find out. The govt is making unilateral decisions with NO input
from the citizens these days. They have in the past of course.. but not in your face like now. Certain executive orders are frightening to say the
least all the way from Reagan to the present ramp up. Our country has been falsely polarized by 2 parties.. the dems and repubs.. but if you watch and
listen.. they want the same things and just say something different. Throw a bone to the slumbering.Put on a good show.
I love my country very much. I have enjoyed the freedoms we still have throughout my life and we still have many freedoms and advantages that other
countries only dream of. The problem is that they are coming to an end...rapidly... we will no longer be or arent already the place where people WANT
to come for the quality of life and freedoms. We really must regain ourselves and make it even better than before. I really dont know how to do this..
nothing we have tried previously has worked... and Im begining to feel that our voting process is a fallacy as well. We can get no justice because the
people we have to go through for recourse are corrupt. Ive experienced this myself on a state and city level. The freedoms and rights are steadily
being chipped away.. and AMericans arent screaming about it. I dont understand the apathy. It seems like the only thing that gets folks in the US off
of the couch anymore is a bombing or tragedy and pointing at some sort of identifiable enemy. Gung ho.. lets get em. But they never never question
anything. We are truly conditioned for war at the word jump. Our patriotism is now something turned sour rather than any true patriotism. The wars
with no end and supporting them are patriotism now? It sure has changed from when I was a kid..
Each of you from other countries.. dont you realize that your governments are complicit in this?? Cant we all put away the penises and testosterone (
female here.. just making a funny) for a bit and seek common ground to change this monstrosity we are **all** responsible for having allowed? Some
here seem to be operating on a 1950-60 world and not the real world we are in now. It is NOT my government alone that is completely out of control
and on a horrible course... but it will be my government that becomes what you definitely dont want... a very hungry war machine.We are already well
on our way. If youre griping about unjust wars now.. you havent seen anything yet compared to what we would be capable of given the green light by
these so called international allies and organizations. No civilized human being wants this. We have the capability to destroy the middle east.. we
dont. If you believe that we dont due to China or Russia.. youre fooled. Our battle plans are more like stall tactics and soft occupations. China and
Russia want the natural resources.. they already enjoy a nice oil relationship with Iran and other countries in the ME. They will make a deal with
whomever controls it.. if they havent already. DO you really think we are there to win anything in the conventional sense? Surges, spreading
democracy,and winning hearts and minds.. bunch of BS to placate the foolish masses of our respective countries. Thats not a way to wage war.. not a
war to "win" and come home. There is nothing to win.. there is no democracy to spread.
This bashing of eachother drives me up the wall.. seriously guys.. whos country is worse, more corrupt, or whatever? How about they ALL are... anyone
involved in this is culpable. Youre on ATS for Gods sake.. you havent seen all of these things unfolding right in front of you? I hope to hell Im
wrong and Im just another old nut.. you better hope so too. I simply see no other benefit for the things we have been doing for the last 40 years in
particular other than what Im describing. Each of us better consider that this new world order may not be what you think it is and that its already
Now get along and stop making these stupid threads.
