    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".

      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!

                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.

                  Only when that society is communist. 

                  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 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!

      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?

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?"

          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.

            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.

You better know it or once you wake up under fascism. Wake up America! Wake up NOW!

      You know who is who?  How is that?  By believing what your government allows you to watch and listen?  We are awake, and unfortunately you are awake in a dark room.

      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???? smile smile smile  ........ yeah, right... roll

        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.
