Hey'' anybody remember the Biafran jokes--------one million people died during the US sponsered Nigeria-Biafra conflict of the late 1960s, this was also linked to oil interests.
Corporations with head offices in the United States of Conspicuous Consumption....how can there be any respect for a nation or a people who don't stand up against their government when that government promotes and encourages pollution, mayhem and violence, death destruction and anything and everything that they believe will enhance the "bottom-line"?
" But the grievances are highly selective while equal wrongs or even greater wrongs by others
are selectively ignored OR don't get the passion American hypocrisy inspires in you and others."
Once again, no other guilty or potentially guilty nation has declared openly and persued militarily thier expressed intent at global domination.The American problem is not one of exclusivity but one of long standing immeadiacy and magnitude.This is the source of the present passion and not simple discrimination based on mindless prejudice against the American people.
Yes Bear and I think that's what Beve is saying although I wouldn't presume to do his talking for him.
The United States has openly declared as much for far longer than any other nation. Not only has the charade of "the Red Menace" been employed as rationale for establishing oppressive regimes in Nicaragua, Iraq, a dozen places around the world, the U.S. has ACTED on this premise. If you can Bear please eduate me on the number of military involvements the Russians undertook over the past sixty years and compare that to the number of military incursions the U.S. has made over the same time.
The entire Iraq situation is a situation of the making of the American government. If we can agree that the hocus pocus of WMDs was a lie..or at least a concept founded much more in wishing than fact, everything that proceeds from that effort is bound to be seeded with contempt corruption and disingenuousness... how could it be otherwise?
America has certainly helped millions, but the off-setting dynamic to that is a world that is pushed closer to unimaginable destruction...
Can I put you down in my journal as someone who believes that armageddon is appropriate if underwritten by america?
This thread focuses on Candian Anti-Americanism...
I've suggested that one of the principal reasons why there's a goodly amount of anti-American sentiment is for absolutely valid reasons. If you want a "Canadian Anti-Russia thread go for it, but I thought we agreed a long time ago that poltics and truth never lay down in the same bed together whether thats the Kremlin, Ottawa or Washington DC....
Thieves and liars one and all.
