Egypt, Syria, Lybia and the list goes on.
Certain countries; countries like the USA, Canada, England etc have encouraged, backed and fully supported uprising in other countries. We label other governments and leaders as evil, tyrants, dictators, murderers and we call those who are attempting to overthrow their government as protesters, civilians, amongst other words that label them as innocent.
The media goes along with this. However, usually we see (in due time) that those people are not so innocent, we have heard that they torture, rape, murder, and so on. This is not only done by the opposing military but civilians as well.
The media seems to fail us by siding with one side and not reporting on the other, or not reporting correctly.
Now the question I ask; the reason for this article is this. What if other countries and their leaders were to encourage and support an uprising by civilians in Canada or the USA to overthrow their government because they no longer work for the people? would our governments step aside and say that the people have spoken and they will step down? I don't think so, I think that every person who is against the government will be arrested or even murdered by the police and military.
So why do we allow and encourage such things in other countries but not our own?
The USA is a perfect example where the majority of the people want Obama and his people gone because it has become more of a dictatorship rather than a government by the people/for the people. Canada is very much becoming the same.
The Governments of the countries of North America are hypocrites. They claim to want freedom and democracy for other nations, even supplying weapons and money to those attempting to overthrow their governments but yet will never tolerate the same within their own.
Will this ever change? I don't think so, I fear that it will only get worse.
