Is the USA "Winning" the Real Life Game of "Risk"

Updated on May 31, 2012

We can see the changes, not sure if it's a good thing.

Am I the only one that believes in the saying "history repeats itself" or are we just easily deceived? The ones running the show are just masters of deceit. You say to yourself "there is no way our country is the cloak and dagger of the world" the bigger the deception the harder it is for one to admit that they have been so foolishly deceived.

I'm not saying anything bad about America; I'm just trying to prove myself wrong that my fellow patriots are really that dumb. I have no problem standing up for my country, its just insulting with the reasoning that is given for our global actions.

Hey, know problem you need to make our allies military's the largest in the world. Were told it’s because they believe in what we believe in so that's why were helping them, "Um, is that addressed to me or Bush's Kindergarten classroom".

Just tell us what is really going on like maybe you don't trust the rest of the world and you are extending our power strategically around the world by giving perks to weak countries as long as they do everything we say in order for us to have the advantage position over any threatening entities. It's kind of like having a young mistress, your agreement is that you feed her money and she pretty much does anything you want when ever you want. If the mistress acts up you cut the financial cord. She might retaliate by making you look bad to the rest of the world, but you have the power to silence her. Over time with your smiles and money being flexed around everyone forgets.

We as the people are so oblivious to what is really going on in the world. All we know is what we are told by the media and the government. There is a reason why people are protesting through out the nation. There is a reason why groups are being established to take control of the information that is being so nicely filtered before it reaches our childlike ears.

Am I imagining this?

Everything just doesn't seem right.

      Maybe the real question should be, who is playing the game for the USA?

      Yes, you are absolutely correct. The media feeds us exactly what they want us to know, that is their version of an actual event. In some cases, it makes you wonder where in the heck the media even got their information. Nice hub and I doubt this will change for a long time. I'm not sure which is really worse. no news or false news.
