Wait, wait the US is one of the FEW governments that lies to her people? What?
First off you missed a few of the absolutely huge times in history that the US federal government has even admitted that they lied, covered up
horrible things and killed people. Such as, I don't know, the Tuskegee Experiments, MK-ULTRA, the abuses of the USA PATRIOT act, Iran Contra, and the
School of the Americas.
Secondly and most importantly though you say there are only a few countries that do this? That is utterly laughable!
Talk to anyone who lived on the other side of the Iron Curtain during the Cold War about the lies they were fed. Ask any Northern Irish Catholic about
the Troubles. Talk to any Japanese citizen living near Sendai, or about their Chemical Weapons programs in the 1980s. Try to find out if there are any
homosexuals living in Iran. Ask the Uzbeks about all of the people in their country that just disappear. Find a man or woman in France that won't spit
before saying the word "Vichy." Ask an Argentine about all of those guys who showed up in the late 1940s with German accents.
Talk to anyone, anyone at all, who has lived in South Africa, China, Cuba, Burma, Columbia, Venezuela or Mexico about how honest their government
Better yet, try to get a North Korean to actually be honest about the last time they had a real meal.
In the words of Dr. House, "everyone lies." You only hear about the American lies more because you live there and they are the most powerful country
Welcome to the real world buddy.
