I've come to the conclusion that whattever the government thinks is the right course of action when it comes to foreign affairs is generally the
opposite of what the people of that region actually want.
I hope the rest of the world does not judge the american people for the arrogant and reckless foreign policies of our corrupt politicians. Believe me,
we are just as upset as the rest of the world, and although it appears we don't give a damn, we truly do. We care about what the rest of the world
thinks about us, and I find the obnoxious and arrogant attitude of our government offensive and reprehensible.
There are many of us who are "awake," the sad part is the majority of voters are easily manipulated into whatever the popular opinion of the day
happens to be.
The reason our government is afraid to show support for an organized uprising, is a matter of history. The french dhowed support and gave aid to the
american revolutionary army out of hatred for the british, however the whole thing backfired on them when the french saw how the americans succesfully
overthrew a super power with modest means, and shortly there after went about overthrowing the french monarchy. Although the way the french went about
it was much more brutal, they beheaded TPTB.
Political power is a tricky thing. Think of a chess board that is a million times as large in size and complexity, and you will begin to see how
difficult the decision making process truly is
