Let me get this straight, you are no more better than me. Yes, at least I have the balls to say what's on my mind.

If you have to argue on the internet, you are already a loser.
I am only posting facts. and if posting on the net that you want more Americans killed so you can prance around. It does make me better than you.It probably makes 99 percent of the population better than you.I guess that puts you in the same class as prision thugs and child molesters

RE: The selling out of America

I will not argue the missteps of the past with anyone. I can say that I do not hate. And the people I know do not hate. And Shabah makes a good point, God said love thine enemy, and I hope that is what we are trying to do over there. We all have, or had our prejudices. It is up to us to overcome our past and try to make the future better, this goes for all of us.

To answer your question - NONE!

But that means we have to play the "good guys"? Whose to say the Arabs are bad? Just because they don't agree with our political views? Just because someone's religion require their women to wear bee suits and uneducated? Least not forget our women also bear footed and pregnant until they decided to burn their bras and demand equality only 30 some years ago.

Flying airplanes into buildings and dynamiting trains and buses in Europe and nightclubs in the south Pacific are a sort of hint that not all is exactly right with some folks who have a shared cultural heritage. Can you name that cultural heritage?

RE: The selling out of America

So our hands are cleaned? Did it ever occur to you, maybe, just maybe, somewhere, some time, that we pissed people off to warrant those reactions? Isn't actions always generate reactions?

I think one of the biggest reasons some Arab countries "hate" us has to do with the embarassement of Saddam. His army was destroyed,(by infidels), quickly with few dead on our side, He went into hiding. No Arab man wants to be defeated or seen as a coward. If the Iranians had done it then almost no one in the M/E would have cared, after all they are all muslims
Wrong, the Arabs don't hate the US because of Saddam. As matter of fact no one really liked Saddam anyway, so good riddance. The problem is in the execution through lies. By making 911 the cause to invade Iraq is a good example of stupid US action. The US should have stayed the course by pursuing Usama, he was the one directly tied to 911. How about WMD? how about what Saddam did to his people? Well the first one was half lies the second one is pure bullshit. Since when did the US really care about Arab suffering????? If they did, why not other dictators in the Arab world on the firing line? No, Iraq was an "easy" target because the neocons said so and Israel confirmed that WMD was being manufactured by the tons and they felt threatened.

We probably pissed them off when Clinton launched Tommahawk missles into many of the terrorist camps. Not a real bright move.

RE: The selling out of America

Ok, First the mass graves have been documented. Genocide. Second as far as WMD, he used them on the Kurds, HELLO where were you during the Gulf War. Third give a rat enough time and he can hide the cheese.IE the weapons were moved to Syria perhaps or another "friendly" country. Heck we gave him enough time while we fooled around with the UN.

RE: The selling out of America

Iraq was not an easy target. I agree we should have finished it during the first gulf war.Also you should know that the US is by far the largest humanitarian nation on the planet.We give more to to others so we do care, see earlier post about Africa... What do we really have to gain there?
