Its not the US responsability to clean up the world
The US doesn't "clean up the world". Much the contrary, it is responsible for some of the worst regimes that have been around post-WW2, due to
government coups and placing people who were pro-west in power, disregarding what they would do to their people.
People like Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi stayed in power when it suited the US agenda, and the same actually happened with Iran under the TPAJAX
project(UK + US intelligence project). One of the reasons why Iran doesn't like the US so much, is due to their revolution, which took down also a
regime that was pro-west.
every lowlife nation on earth wants money from the US
Actually, they don't. Especially since when the US and US-backed agencies and funds that are given have immensely high interest rates. For instance,
if the IMF gives 50 million, they expect you to pay 500 million.
That's not giving, that's business. And in many cases, that business grows on the population suffering while the people in power live comfortably
(comfortably being an understatement).
And it's a bit animalistic to call them low-life nations, when most of them are in the gutter due to western conflicts within said "low-life" nations.
Maybe countries like Afghanistan ask for US aid because the US took the liberty of bombing half the place?
we give it they turn on the US
The people who receive the money don't turn on the US. Usually those are in political asylum. The people who turn on the US and burn flags are the
actual people of those nations, because they grow sick and tired of western influence in their affairs and life.
And the way you put it is simplifying an issue that is globally complex. Countries and people don't turn on the "hand that feeds" because they feel
like it... They usually have reasons. But then again, those reasons aren't actually played out in the media.
Like for instance... You could say the US has given money to Iraq (it's making money out of construction and resource exploration, but I'll give you
the argument for the sake of the example), right? Why are they turning on the US? Why the constant bombings and attacks on US forces, both in Iraq and
Well, look at the civilian casualty list, and you can provably understand why.
I would like to see how a patriot like yourself would react if russians were using drones in your country, bombing houses and facilities saying they
harbor terrorists, while your friends and family die as "collateral damage".
That is happening in Pakistan, that's why they are turning despite the US giving them billions in aid.
If I were president I would definatly STOP all foreign aid, Pull all troops home and let these DUMBA@@ countries fend for
Then I'm glad you're not president, because the US being there isn't protecting these countries, it's protecting the US itself. Preemptive defense.
You should know that if you have served in the military.
The best scenario for defense is to have your lines drawn as close as possible to your hostile threats. If you look at a world map, the US defense
isn't in the US within (although internal defense also exists), it's in Europe, Asia, Euroasia and Middle East.
You're not protecting them. You're protecting yourself by making proxy allied countries a target that must be hit before hitting the U.S.
That's the main reason why NATO even exists. Cooperative military alliance with political influence that assures nobody crosses those countries and
goes against the US.
And for those posters saying russia or china wouldnt survive war with the US. LOL LOL U my friend are more blind than anyone!!!! GODBLESS ATS
and GODBLESS the USA.....
Funny that the people who are "blind" don't call the blessing of god to put forward their ideas.
Can you name other people who call the name of god to suit their arguments...? Yeah........
