No culture, too much cash and crash morals... the recipe builds

Reader comment on item: "Death to America"

Submitted by Joe (United States), Aug 4, 2005 at 23:57

I am an American. I am proud to be a person, American has nothing to do with it. I do what my country tells me because that is the way it works. If I were under terroristic islamic rule, I would be a suicide bomber for the sake of Allah and death to the vile snake. If I were mid 1900's German, I would be a Nazi with mindless killing on my hands. If I were Canadian, I would be an entertainer to the world over, as not much really comes from Canada that I am aware.

Instead, I am an infadel. I am the snake to the worlds mongoose. A title I did not earn, ask for nor do I carry on my sleeve. I am a person, in America. A person, who might likely die from some bedowin crashing some sort of explosive device in an area I am in.

I neither agree, nor disagree with our supposed war on terror. I am just a byproduct of it's effects. I fit into a stereotype as African Americans did in the 60's. Oddly, I am just a normal, God-fearing, humanitarian hoping for peace of mind before final rest.

I totally understand why the Arab nations would hate the American way. We have done things in the past (and perhaps current) that defile the nature of another country, in pursuit of perhaps indirectly ruling the world. Our way of life being forced on another is no different than how we viewed Communism at her peak.

My life is filled with riches that most of the world will never know. Yet, it is all false reassurance. I know what I am told, assume what I am lead to believe and live as I am forced to live. I would not leave this country, because the problems never leave me. I am a victim to some form of governmental agenda no matter where I live.

I will say that the Arab nations are childish and fools themselves. They hamper on subjects such as land and religious right. The poor hate the proportionate rich, the rich usually rest ignorant of the trials and tribulations of the poor. I am somewhere inbetween. If I could live life peacefully, with guitar and bible, book and wife in hand, then I would.

To determine that ones life is worth loss because they are different than you is to title yourself with in irrevocable label of infadel. Arabs of this nature are infadels. Suicide bombers are just victims of propeganda, and live a lie. They will have fortune beyond measure for sacrificing their life to kill the enemy. Seems petty in nature, do you also condone the Holy Wars of the Catholics? To kill in the name of God indeed may be a task assigned by God, and therefore is a law you might feel important to abide by.

That having been said, I would think that the more "culturally aware, humble and more realistic nations" of the world would educate their people to make better decisions. Instead, they plant the seed of hate in their youth, with the medium being information-lacking news passed on to generally undereducated people, and then to children, the most vunerable of them all.

We are not a morally clean country. We claim this land with bloody hands, to be a living memorial to our Christian God. We dissolve that same principle with sex, scandal, money, crime and freedom of religion. We may have been iconic to the world around at one point, but like many a great nation, we got a little too hungry on substance to feed our oversized stomachs, and now, the world looks down upon us.

Woe to us Americans, for our enemies no longer are obscured by the rules of War... they no longer have to travel masses great distances to fork out militaristic punishment... they now have their covert Terror Cells and mini-nukes. The same system they deem to hate is the same system they overuse to accomplish their goals.

Sadly, the worst part about the whole deal is the generalizations made and blows dealt. If you wish to start a war, attack the military... not the citizen. You are a coward when you rely upon a suicide bomber to do your bidding. Show us your face scoundrel. Show us your face, infadel. Give us a chance to take you down, so we can show you our true strength.

I still dread the idea of what happened on Pearl Harbor, long before I was born. I loathe that war in its entirety. Yet, I have respect for the japanese navy, at least theirs was a war target... a military base. You ignorant dolts choose residences, malls and work places to take out your attack.

Additionally... to the ENTIRE world... If it were not for the AMERICANS, you very likely would be speaking German or Italian or Japanese. World War in the title implies World... not just one slack jaw country against another. And I am certain that if Hitler wanted, he could have easily overcome your land and owned you like a new car. He took over most of Europe in a short period.

You were only safe in the moment because of current politics did not affect you...had we lost, you would have been facing Hitler's ethnic cleaning on you soon enough. I dont think your guerilla-civillian tactics would have helped you out at all in the long haul.

Additionally, to dar Ayyad min Silwad, Ramallah, you seem much too educated in english to not be American or related... it seems to me that a person of your political standing would prefer the desert over the forest... so why stay?
