Once again its no wonder why your war monger
So let me get this straight. The Japanese were begging to surrender, but you think we're a bunch of orc's drooling and eating fire roasted animal legs sitting in the white house laughing about how many people were about to kill for fun right? Is that really what you believe? Seriously?
Yes i do believe that from the actions of the past i can remember when America attacked Bosnia and attacked Christian Serbs I saw Americans dancing and cheering on the streets on TV my heart weeps after from what i saw back then.
Even with your bombs had words written like Happy ##SNIP## Easter! From USA! on them oh and lets not forget the anti Serbian Hollywood films? showing them as white terroristsedit on 22-1-2012 by Agent_USA_Supporter because: (no reason given)edit on 22-1-2012 by Agent_USA_Supporter because: (no reason given)
Okay, truthfully, I don't know much about what happened in Bosnia. I'm familiar with the conflict but know nothing about what was going on at the time or the causes of it. I'll have to look into that.
War is meant to be made cruel. It's meant to bring great suffering. The reason for this is to completely and utterly break the mind and will of the opponent. Hence the writings on the bombs, it's meant to show that in war soldiers have no qualms or fears about using those weapons. I'm not justifying this, i'm just stating the facts here. As bad as that sounds though, sometimes it's the only way to keep and bring about peace. In the old days wars would last for long periods of time. The way things are set up now they're made to be over with in a few days. That is military vs military. Not policing countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. That's totally different.
Now, like I said, I don't know much about what was going on with the Bosnia conflict. But I do know what went on with Japan in WWII and I really don't see why that makes me a "war monger". If the U.S. would have deployed troops in Japan the causalities would have been far more horrific. Those two bombs may have killed 170,000-190,000+, but a ground invasion would have cost both sides millions. There was no other option. We gave the Japanese chance after chance to surrender. There was no other way.
I believe in peace and ultimately want peace. But there's just those times when war is the only answer to peace. Sort of like if you get bit by a rattlesnake and your going to die from it's venom, you have to use venom as an antidote. I know, not a great analogy, but it shows that there is two sides to war as well, just as theres two sides to venom. Both are deadly, but both can be tools used to save lives as well.
The U.S. is the police of the world. And just like the regular police everyone talks bad about them and this and that, but when you need them there's no better feeling knowing their coming. Yes, we do have bases everywhere, that's because we're keeping world peace. We knew along time ago who the major players were in the middle east, Iran, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. We have S.A. We now have Iraq. Now we have to stop Iran. If Iran gets nukes they will control all of the middle east. They don't have to have army bases everywhere like we do. They have all they need to bring the world to its knees right up under their feet. If they get nukes they will do just that. Most countries will join them just to be under the protective wing. The ones that don't (Saudi Arabia) they will threaten to nuke. They will sweep up every country in the middle east. Then do you think their going to deal with us and other European nations? No. They are going to use oil to strangle us.
This is one of those cases were war is going to be the only thing that solves this. Iran is going for nuclear weapons. Ever since Khameni (Sp) took over and now with the New Supreme Leader in charge, believe me, they are military minded. Look at their military progress. China, they may not have bases everywhere, but look at their current military build up. Why are you so against America? It's almost like you turn a blind eye to everyone else and keep thinking or blaming America is so bad. But the reality is, America is only doing what it needs to do to keep the rest of the world at peace and keep its citizens happy. Try to view America from a different perspective, just try. I know war is not cupcakes and roses, but is sometimes more necessary then you care to believe.
