No. People are yelling at you for defending the LEADERS of this country. There is a BIG difference, and if you can't see that I'm sorry. I truly
No, I am defending MY country because guess what, if WWIII breaks out, it will be these three countries' fault for not adhering to the international
communities' laws, then it will be US who gets killed and destroyed, not our leaders.... They will be completely safe.
If I were Iran I'd be lying to the U.S. leaders too.
And ours isn't? Are you blind?
What religion rules our country again?
You're thinking about this all wrong by wanting one country to have "higher moral standards" than another. Why can't we all be on the same page for
once. Why can't we all just look at each other as fellow human beings?
Well good luck with that wet dream, please post it on here when it happens! Really you want North Korea a place that very much resembles Nazi Germany
to somehow evolve and learn how to treat their people like Gods? Oh wait, that must be US's fault as well!
Why can't we just bring our troops home, defend our borders and airspace from here? Spend the money that we do on wars and get our people back to
work. Because if we do then we'd be "letting our guard down" and the big bad boogeymen would come get us because they're envious of our way of life?
That's the argument I get all the time. "The rest of the world is envious of our standard of living and want to to take it away from us." I got news
for you....We don't HAVE a standard of living to be envious of. The rest of the world feels sorry for us and I don't hold it against them. Both
Germany and Japan are doing WAY better than us. Remember them? Remember how we kicked their a** once upon a time? Look at them now and then look at
us. You see the Middle East want to take them on? No. You know why? Because they LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE and take care of their own. That's why they have a
high standard of living, few if any enemies and we don't. It's all very simple really.
Look, I'm going to guess your quite young and naive. But complaining about NOT having your ideal world is NOT going to help your cause whatever that
may be. People attack us for numerous reasons and yes in the past they have attacked us because they hate out system. Iran frequently calls us the
Evil Empire or something along those lines. There are things that you and I don't know about that are considered threats and which could lead to acts
of war. However, you expect me to believe that you, probably a kid, knows more about international tensions, laws, policies, and culture than the rest
of the world governments combined?? If we become isolationists and not keep on eye on everyone we wouldn't know what's going on in the world and by
the time someone does attack us for some random reason, it will be too late to figure out what and why it happened!
Your ideal world view is NEVER going to happen, so get over it! It's too late, the world is globalized now.
