You are just as guilty for not single-handedly overthrowing or toppling whatever cheap, dirty, evil regime you are part of as well. Do you pay taxes
to your regime/government? Do you support terrorists by not destroying them? Then you are just as guilty as Americans.
Relax. Take a breath. Calm down and think. What you will discover is that the majority of the world's citizens are not for war and death. Yet the
majority are not in control ---in ANY country. Can the average Iranian topple the terrorists who run that country? No. Could the average Cambodian
stop the violence and bloodshed of the Killing Fields era? No. Could the average Bosnian stop what was set into motion in the 90s? No. Can the
average Cuban change their country right now? Probably not. So, unless you can further a change in your own government, don't lecture and accuse and
judge anyone else.
Yes, a LOT of change has been made in the middle east lately. But, we have not seen where that will take those countries just yet. It took Americans
several years (6 or 7, I think) to elect George Washington as President after the Revolutionary War. We won't know the course of Egypt, Tunisia and
the others for years. Will a worse dictator replace the previous one? We just won't know until some time has passed.
If it had not been for America, then everyone else in the world would be speaking either: German, Japanese and/or Russian ---or some freakish
combination of the three. We (with fantastic Allies) saved the world from Hitler and Tojo in WWII. We (with fantastic NATO allies) saved the world
from communists during the extended Cold War. And now, the thanks we get is hatred because we live pretty stable lives and try to pass on that
stability to other parts of the world?
A simple thanks would suffice. If not, then at least don't complain, and just be THANKFUL YOU AREN'T SPEAKING RUSSIAN. *Who* helped the Afghans
repel a Russian invasion? Yes, comrade, America.
Yet we get ridiculous hatred like your OP. Really? You are blaming good people because they can't change things like the Cambodians, Bosnians,
Iranians and Cubans (et al) couldn't change things? Really? Why don't you begin an intensive study of World History and see that some things, some
problems will exist no matter the country, the regime, the leader. Average people do not want war. Some elite FEW seem to continually set the stage
for hatred and conflict... and you, by the very words of your original post (OP)... have fallen into their trap. Spread peace and love, not war and
