You read way too much into what I said. I never said we started it all.<quoted text>
So your logic is America started it ALL. America was setting around with nothing else to do, but go pick a fight with someone? The stupidity of people like you amazes me. You blame America for the ills of the world, that we are suppose to let other countries attack us or our allies around and just stand by and let it happen, because to go and kick someones ass for it might piss THEM off? How do you call yourselves Americans is beyond me.
Your comments jump to hysterical conclusions you need to get a hold of yourself.
America does some really great things in this world, no doubt. However, we also do not look at long term effects that some of our policies have on a country, take Iran, for instance. In 1953 we overthrew a democratically elected government, to install the Shah. 26 years later, we got the Islamic Revolution.
In the 80's we counted Saddam Hussein as an ally, providing him with some of his weapons, because he was in a war with Iran. This was a short sighted policy that will end up costing us close to a TRILLION dollars.
It is these types of policies I'm talking about, you may want to look into them.
Oh and by the way, Iraq did not attack us, Hussein was a bad guy, to be sure, but you apparently missed out on all that is going on about who attacked us.
Being an American means standing up for our country when it is right, but working to correct it when it is wrong.
You seem to be one of those people who say America is always right.
You need to widen your scope and pay attention, because I have news for you, we reap what we sow.
Try not to read too much into waht some people say too.
