The parallel universe of academia

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by Arlinda DeAngelis (United States), Nov 12, 2002 at 21:23

The United States in the Twentieth Century preemptively attacked Germany (World War I), Germany and Italy (World War II), North Korea (UN police action), Iraq (Gulf War) Serbia and Afghanistan (War on Terror). The United States emerged from these military actions without ever colonizing and/or stealing the wealth of these aggressor nations. As a matter of fact, these nations under the guidance and generosity of the US, enjoy continued prosperity and freedom from their losses.

The United States created a new age of information and globalism, all of which we shared with other countries because we are a responsible and generous "great nation." In the belief that liberal democratic nations do not make war on one another, America created and funded the United Nations, and on its own, promotes, encourages and funds democracy and freedom throughout the world. America, with all of its shortcomings and imperfections, gleefully pointed out by the brilliant albiet senseless academics, is the place where the world's huddled and unhuddled masses wish to live.

People are not risking life and limb to live in the world of Islam.

Professors Chomsky, Foner, Rego, Gilmore, Qumsiyeh and Nagy live in the parallel universe of academia where it is crucial to be as far from reality as is humanly possible.
