From my personal view, only debt, revolts, poverty, amorality, corruption, puppets-dictators and wars are from US govt to the world. No democracy, no peace, no development from US. Do you think the same or opposite?
now is it usa responsibility to do good for other countries?..secondly all revolts , corruption as you said needs receiving end too...can't blame only country which gives money if people who take money lack morals...if usa is to be blamed 50% ,then 50% blame goes to concerned governments too...
USGovt knows better whom these money give to and what do they do with these money. As amount of money country receiving from US is growing, the country become poorer and USGovt offers them even more money. Interestingly, those who refuse to take US money are usually "dismissed" by revolts or wars. And dont say me those revolts are "democratic".
you didnt get me...who revolts?..does america send its citizen to revolt?..no..if america sponsers revolt , it means some body has been bought by america...america is working for its interest which is fair...now person or group which takes usa money needs to be blamed more..why blame buyer alone?
@rakuda nice analogy...well it is not exactly like that though ...only point i want to make is it is not united state of america's responsibility alone that world becomes better place...usa's first commitment is towards its own citizen...
are you astrologer?..btw i dont watch fox news...but get this as my opinion..instead of blaming x or y or z country ..do remember it is citizens,governments and rulers of those countries far more to be blamed than external parameters...if people can stand tall with integrity no external parameter can do anything about it and if they can't ...well someone would buy them...rising powers are new buyers in the world..usa might get replaced by china in buying spree...so it is not x or y as external parameter ..it is in that country at first place...chao...
exactly and first thing is world is not america's responsibility...if people accuse usa for various things from toppling government , to corruption and even to terrorism , they must realize that their own people get sold and for their own interest work along with america...why blams america?..it would do what it thinks is its national interest...
The exact opposite! It's the ungrateful attitude in the rest of the world that really turnes me off and makes me wish America would just end all relations with foreign countries. Let's stop sending money, technology, etc. Let's stop immigration, stop educating foreigners and supporting and subsidizing them. Let's stop protecting foreing interests, helping to settle their disputes. We don't need the rest of the world let them fend for themselves, let them fight their own wars! Good luck!
There will be no wars. Of course if US will also stop production and selling weapons. Who produces weapons that kill US soldiers ? US. Where gerillas get money from to buy US weapons? Selling heroin. Why do not US destroy opium plantations? Then the war will be over. You government loves wars and it loves killing americans. Dont you see it?
Yeah sure, people are fighting everywhere, just look at Africa, India, Pakistan. We could leave tomorrow and you'd all still be fighting amongst yourselves, and frankly, I think that's exactly what America should do, let you all kill each other, and when there's no one left we'll just take your treasures!
What degree of freedom is good depends on society. In those countries were your "freedom of speech" is promoted by US are becoming immoral. even pornography is promoted as "freedom of speech". That is what you do not know. America is mature society with strong rule of law where "freedom of speech" is responsibility.
The freedom of speech gives the individual the right to decide what degree is good. There are also legal repercussions in the U.S. for immoral speech against other people such as defamation of character. You have just as much right not to listen or watch the pornography. The point is we have a right to choice covered by the first amendment, not someone telling us.
No it isn't but it would be if I was in charge! I'm sick of seeing my tax money spent to help people that hate us and are ungrateful for all that we've done for them! No good deed goes unpunished I guess, so maybe we should just use our power to enrich ourselves and eliminate all that hate us, all the ungrateful that whine and complain! Why are we wasting our time with NK, Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan, let's just nuke them all and wipe the off the face of the Earth! Let's take their oil and gold, their water, and lumber, all their resources! Why are we allowing our young people to die to bring freedom to such ingrates?
No! I am talking that money, US govt takes from americans go directly to corrupt regimes, not poor people. You should thank me, because I worry about americans and your money. Why are wasting your time with NK, Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan?? I do not know! I dont know what re you doing there! Those who did 9.11 are in DC.
I could laugh until I need CPR on this posited question, the inferences, the absurdity. God (global God/Higher Power) help us all, if the good the USA has done across this world is eclipsed by the crap that some elements of this world would like to see stick and stick hard over all the good the USA has accomplished all across this globe. HA!
So let me see if I get this right. It is in your opinion that we should stop trying to assist countries in financial difficulty because they do not know how to manage the money we give them and that makes us the cause of their trouble.
You get me right. Financial "help" turned into money dependency. In is not money, after all, which brings hapiness. If they want to help, so open firms, employ people, and so on. I understand, it is easier to print debt than to really help people. Those who always get money will never be strong. Is that what US wants?
Okay, it is obvious to me that you have very little idea about what is going on in the U.S. 3/4 of what used to be US jobs have been outsourced. On top of that we have undocumented workers here taking up positions that are already to far and few for our own citizens. We are suffering from record numbers in both unemployment and welfare. Our economy is in the crapper right along with everyone else. Exactly what more do you think we should be doing.
And that is why US Govt must get back from its international "affairs" to own country and own people. Do not you see I am helping you? Your government is corrupt. I dont blame America, I blame criminal USgovt. Americans are suffering because of its government. Do you know who did this crisis? Do not you see that almost everything now in the hand of government? You are loosing your America. You are under experiment of modified socialism. America deserves better government.
Our government is undoubtedly flawed but, your OP questioned all of the U.S. not just our federal government. Most of the citizens of the U.S.A. will rally in vehement defense of our Country when approached in this manner. I believe it may have been better if you had asked "Do you agree with US foreign Policy?" or "Do you think the US government is to involved in other nations politics?"
Ya know I have tried to be patient with you but obviously you really need to do some checking before you start posting. The US has not declared war since the attack at Pearl Harbor in 1942. Vietnam, Korea, and all the rest have been "United Nations Police Actions." We were not and are not the only nation involved in these conflicts. Why are you only trashing the US?
You really do not have a clear grasp of politics at all if you sincerely believe that UN=US. The UN is all to quick to allow the US to fight it's collective battles but never turns out to support the effort made by US citizens. I really would appreciate it if you would educate yourself a little instead of simply posting the "Hate the US" propaganda you are obviously being fed.
I understand, you guys are patriots. This is just great. But loving your country is not the same as loving your government. It killed you on 9.11 to go to kill others in the world and you still love it. Americans die in Iraq, Afghanistan for what? Who they are catching there? Do you really believe that the guy putted bomb under WTC7? Bushes are murderers and you love them. I dont understand you...
No, we all remember that Bush initiated all about Iraq with WMD and he pushed UN, as now America pushes UN against Iran. Now Iraq is set in permanent domestic wars. Iraq will soon stop exist as a country. Who is hiding ? Who is murderer? Bush did 9.11. He is real murderer.
My patients has officially run out now. Simply put you haven't a clue about what you are talking about. The WMD in Iraq may have been intolerable to both Bush Sr. and Jr. but neither Bush put them there. We are doing now what should have been done the first time around in that country and by we I mean the collaborative armies of the UN. And just another thought, do you honestly believe that the US is the only place weapons are manufactured? If so that is only further evidence of just how unaware you are.
Maybe he's from a country upset with America, for stopping their materials from going to Iraq to make more mustard bombs. Like the ones saddam used on the kurds in 01. Odd, they didn't seem to mind that. Too bad America didn't force their beliefs on them then.
We saved Europe's butt, not once but twice. We rebuilt cities and nations devastated by wars of their own construction. We have reached out to other nations when they have been hit by storm and earthquake, sending in first, second and third responders when needed. Food, medicine, experts. Though there are many reasons to disparage US policies, there are also many reasons to thank this nation.
1st. Went to Afghanistan for US...not for them! 2nd, went to Iraq to relieve G. Bush's unvented pressure extending from his genitals. They would also have been experiencing a major rebuilding effort, had the internal strife, which yes, the US is responsible for, not wearied the American people to the point that an end was all we wanted. Most of us, regardless of what some may think, were against this invasion from day one, so in reality, it is not the US which is at fault, It is George Bush. The buck still syops there.
Cmon people! What are you? I do Love America! I want we all live like Americans! You are really Great Nation! The problem what I am talknig about is what your govt does for the world. It makes world a hell. Who should blame for it? I know who is who. I blame US govt. People who doesnt know anything simply hates all americans. I know you didnt deserve it. You personally did nothing bad. Your government is evil to the world. You better know it or once you wake up under fascism. Wake up America! Wake up NOW!
Buddy, you have been the victim of the oldest magician's trick in the book. Misdirection. What do tou think the WTO is? Why do you think all these trade agreements are being ratified. Why does it always appear that the US is at odds w/ the UN, when that is hardly the case. There are many things happening which leads to a world-wide police state, and the US has been struggling for decades not to fall victim to it, and the fact of the matter is this, that the main reason the US is hated is because of our defense of Israel, which means that the muslim world bows, not to Jerusalem, but to Mecca. Pretty crappy reason to hold a gun to the world's head...which direction one must bow.
I did not know that muslims bow to Mecca simply because US supports Jerusalem. Where should they prey if US support Saudis? and who is holding a gun? Those who did 9.11? They are all in your WH, buddy.
They would pray to Jerusalem, for it is from the Dome Of The Rock where Muhammad ascended to heaven. It is the holiest place in Islam. Jerusalem, being in the hands of Israel, defiles it, therefore, the adherents of Islam pray to Mecca, the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad. So, it is not that we support Israel that this is done, but Israel is hated for their "occupation" of the site, which is the holiest place in all the world to the Israelis and Christians, and we are hated because we back them.
Bad question to ask me. I see the formation of Israel in 1946 as a landgrab made possible by the success of the Allied nations after the defeat of Nazi Germany. The Hebrews coming out of Europe (Can't really blame them) needed a place to be. Great Britain, the U.S. and other allies didn't want a flood of any refugees, so, they took them back to where they were from. Unfortunately, someone already lived there. Then, it was all called PALESTINE. Keep in mind, it was also called Palestine during Roman times when most of the Hebrews really did live there.
I asked you because you always perfectly back US govt on everything it does. Why would they need their own state in Palestine? Why did US refuse to take them ALL in 1930s? Why US made nazis to put them in camps?
The problem is - why do they ALWAYS need food and vacines, medicines and doctors, book and water? WHY?? Why does americans have it all? Why there is poor countries in the world which are getting poorer and poorer? You may say, blame them. Sure! The link is that all poor countries are recipients of US credits and financial aid. What a coincidence. US money doesnt work, US vacines are OK.
Notice I didn't include sending money. How can you argue that sending food to feed hungry people is bad?? It's not our fault that we have a surplus of food. We have good soil, room for crops, and adequate water. Shame on us!
So, it is a plot, a long term plot to suppress other peoples and make them need food, vaccines, governmental direction?????
Unbelievable that the USA would be blamed so generally and generically for working their asses off and sharing.
You might have a look at the actual basic tenets of the founding of this country for the success of this country, leading to our ability to help other countries. The course we are on to socialistic hep me hep me governing? It will lead to our many years of success to look like an historical experimental blip, and we all will be poor and hungry and wondering what country will step in to help fight our oppressors......now there is something to discuss -- who will help when we cannot any longer?
Michael Moore???? Bill Maher??? Bill Clinton!!! Pelosi???? Reid???? Soros???? Are they going to liquidate their wealth and spread it around and make it all better???? ........ yeah, right...
Hunger is not an american caused phenomenon. Sickness is not an american caused phenomenon. You seem to want to lay blame on US no matter what. We're evil for doing bad, and we're evil for doing good. Here's one last suggestion.... Hold your breath till you pass out, preferably while standing in heavy traffic.
I've enjoyed your posts and answers elsewhere, on the subject of driving traffic to your blog. Very knowledgeable. You should do your first hub on that, after you get finished baiting the hubbers into proving your point.
Thanks for following me, but you really need not have. Actually, it kind of creeps me out. I notice you follow anyone who's posts you don't agree with too. Yes, that's the way to build traffic.
Well and clearly said Sab Oh. There are many "Evil" governments in this world, the USA......well, right now, who knows, for sure the current "LEADERS" are sort of narrow minded and rich and ungrateful to America ...... oh, I forgot, Obama told Latinos if they didn't vote they were helping their enemies -- so maybe the US gov't IS approaching an 'evil' position, IMO, but for certain, there has never been a time in US history that we were considered 'evil' before now -- until now -- yet immigrants, legal and illegal, flock to the USA -- ouch, it just gives me such a headache!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The election has been a well timed Ecotrin washed down with my own spring water.........Perhaps there are now more Congressmen who can coherently convey the good the US had accomplished for the countries of this continent and around the world. Too bad so many Americans were shot down in Juarez, Mexico this past week, wonder why, are we too nice, too politically correct, too open to other nations in this day and time of the 21st century?? I think perhaps so.
Habee, That was so wonderful, what a great link, and I am so thrilled (ya gotta wonder how many here even know who he is) to know that you are a Randy Newman fan, he is great, my husband intro'd me to him 20 years ago, and he is so there for so long, kind of under the radar for so many.....let's Drop the Big One Now .
For sure, when I hear sound tracks on movies that I'm thinking are him, I sit and wait just like in a movie theatre for all the credits to run to see for myself, I don't have the best ear, and his music has run through the years in a very good way. Short People--yikes, yes, but I can't say I think many really know who he is, what all he has done, my Mike does and can talk at length about him, anyway, a good reference for this truly silly topic of ill intent.
