I have some questions. To the OP, would you like foreigners telling you what to do in your own country? I mean, no offense, but that is just a no-
brainer. What we do here is our business. Period. Yes it affects a lot of other countries too, but tough luck. Foreigners, mind your own business.
It's called national sovereignty.
Now it's pretty apparent that some people have trouble governing themselves. The world is much smaller than it used to be and if you can't play
nice then someone's got to handle the situation because actions will affect more than just you. The next thing I ask is, to everyone who thinks the
U.S. is basically the evil devil, would you rather the Soviet Union had won the cold war? Hey, someone had to win and whether you like to admit it or
not, the world is much much better off with America as the major world empire. You think the Soviets would let us all get online and rant against
things we have absolutely no knowledge of? Think the Soviets would send food and medicine to Africa (which Europe mostly screwed up by colonizing it,
but that's OK, we'll help them)? How about the British Empire? Yeah, they had a great humanitarian record.
America is the policeman of the world because you all have proven time and again that you cannot police yourselves. Here's an idea: How about the
rest of the world grow a pair and start taking responsibility for their own problems instead of leaving us holding the bag and then criticizing how we
handle it- I'm talking to you U.K. for your failure to deal with Hitler and you France for the whole mess in Vietnam. Just a couple examples where
we bailed out people.
I am reminded of Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men when he said, "You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at
parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to
defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the
blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you," and went on
your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to."
