Really TC, this article is "opinion", opinion is based on facts. The lady is telling you how she feels about your country. It's a feeling that is
increasingly common in the UK, and across the world. Doesn't this frighten you at all?
This woman is saying that your entire culture is becoming obsessed with violence and war, but that you don't understand what that implys, hence your
disney aircraft dropping bombs that kill people. US soldiers shooting civilians, and none of you care, because they're not American civilians, just
foreigners. As a good Christian would put it; God Help You.
No Dom, the "editorial" is not based on "fact", merely opinion. I'd say it is based more on hate and resentment than anything else.
Our society isn't warlike. Its clear that she has no idea either about American society or what being warlike really is. It might do well for her
to look in the areas from whence trouble seeks out America to see warlike, or at least murderous.
Iraq was liberated in record time, a threat to my family has been removed, and I threat to the Iraqi families was removed at the same time. The
torture chambers are empty, the plastic shredders are quiet, and the psycho that put 10's of thousands in mass graves, many buried alive, is either
dead or in hiding and unable to put another person in a mass grave, and this woman wants to say we disgust her.
Well you know what, Dom, she disgusts me! And you are right, my opinion is to heck with her.
Maybe she's proud of the nations that didn't want to change the political control in Iraq, wanted to continue to allow the people to be brutalized
and for Hussein to remain an immenent threat to our children so that they could continue to make under the table deals with the madman, so that they
could make a few Euros and didn't care about a thing else. Maybe she's just in love with them. She's better unseat her head from her 5th point of
contact and realize that if her nation is ever in the same situation as Iraq, it won't be those other nations that come to her rescue. Not unless
there's something in it for them.
It seems to me that many try and describe the U.S. in terms that would more accurately fit other nations.
