Stop playing victim.

Reader comment on item: The Ninth 9/11
in response to reader comment: How many have courage to criticize US foreign policy

Submitted by Raymond (United States), Sep 22, 2010 at 13:01

Here we go again – with the "you support repressive regimes" nonsense. We trade and do business with a lot of countries, it doesn't mean we support them or are propping them up. Doesn't mean we like or agree with them. America had nothing to do with creating your countries. The British and French set up most of the modern Middle East. If we support sanctions against repressive countries, then we get accused of killing innocent civilians. If we go to war to evict those rulers, or support the overthrow of the government, they accuse us of an illegal invasion. SO what would you like us to do Asad? What would you like us to do? Tell me.

How about you take responsibility to clean up your own mess, for once. You can take to the streets and protest when some hick in Florida wants to burn a Koran, but you can't march for rights and freedom? You get the government that you deserve. If you spent more time working on positive things and less time trying to blow each other up, you would have far better countries. We criticize our government all the time. Mostly by throwing the bums our every 4 years.
