United States is #1, partially because we are not barbarians.
Uhm...someone PLEEEEZE get this man a HISTORY book PRONTO
What do you call 200+ years of enslaving Africans or the rape, killing and butchering of the Native Americans?
The death of thousands of Koreans & Vietnamese??
The obvious death of the women & children at Waco??
The deaths of THOUSANDS of Iraqis including THOUSANDS of Iraqi innocent men, women and children as we speak??
America is just as fooked-up as the worst country in the World....if not more so in terms of barbarism by your standards. We're just better at doing our mischief when the camera 'is turned'. Abu Ghraib has seen to the end of that though. Middle-class America was appalled that their 'pristine' vision of America was shaken when the images poked on our TV screens.
We do not set an example in that regard. I don't feel very bad for Americans killed in Iraq (I just feel bad they had to die senselessly because of Bush), as with Korea & Vietnam because:
WTF were Americans doing in Iraq in the first place??
That's right. Either exploiting the Iraqis or butchering them.
This 'rebuilding' of Iraq would have never needed to take place...if Bush didn't decide to invade a soverign country. The joke is, we're using Iraqi oil money to rebuild things that *we* destroyed!! Wow!! They should thank us, shouldn't they??
America has lost it's stance in the World eye in terms of respect...thanks to Bush, and has in turn made America a legitimate target to all the sickos out there. To them, America is *not* number 1.
Thanks a lot you a-hole BUSH!!
