Truth-TellerThe world has a love - hate relationship with America. I understand this. The fact of the matter is - very few countries on this earth have done very much for anyone except themselves. Throughout the course of history many civilizations have been violent.

The point is - where possible people should have the opportunity to be free - truly free, and America has done its part to assist other countries in this regard. There is something to be said for having the guts to try - even if it fails.

Most of the countries you mentioned - Korea, Vietnam etc. at the time - and some still today - were screw ups. Sort of like shooting a dead body in the head - what the hell is the difference. America did what it could to fight for the freedoms of people. If in the course of doing so - helped itself in other ways - that is just good business.

America has no doubt done some harm throughout history - but it has also done a lot of good. Can you say the same of Islam? Is Islam trying to better the world - or is it looking out for itself. Rights for only Muslims is not truly freedom. Hitler thought he was going to fix the world as well. It is easy for people like you to sit back and throw stones.

You lay in the lap of a western democracy and live in peace through no sacrifice of your own - while at the same time spew the kind of crap you wrote about in your last post. Waste of skin, waste of mind and like Islam - a waste of time.

Good luck taking over the world- you have a long long long way to go - and things have a funny way of doing a turn about. The bulk of the Muslim population you speak of are living in Mud Huts. The majority of this OIL money - is going into the hands of a very very small group of people - corruption is everywhere my friend - even in Islam. Very few Muslims live in Gold Palaces - the large majority around the world "live in a sewer" - and that is not likely going to change anytime soon. Go TEAM Go.

Have a nice life ...
