Yes, it is ALL YOUR FAULT
Don’t rationalizing it. Don’t make excuses for yourself. Don’t think eventually history will show you any gratitude. Don’t say that others would’ve been just as bad. Take some responsibility for once. You are the cause for these problems and it is all because of your irrational self-serving actions.
When this country was attacked on 9/11, we had the single best opportunity since WWII to unite the world. To have one common stance against a common enemy. To once again show how when we all work together, what great achievements we can make.
What you did was squandered that opportunity. I don’t care why you did it. For revenge, for money, for oil, for a doomsday welcome-Jesus-back scenario that you seem to want to bring to the world, or for whatever reason.
I don’t care what your reason is. You’ve screwed not just the US, but the world.
Under the disguise of finding WMDs, then liberating a group of people not looking to be liberated, and unknowingly destroying a barrier that was keeping the region in balance, and all the meanwhile irritating the most volatile region in the world. You have caused more death and destruction than that region would have caused itself in decades time.
Don't just count the American Deaths, the death of all the civilans are all on your hands.
While you're busy on your crusade, the real people that needed help (and still do), mostly in Africa, are still dying by the thousands each DAY from diseases, famine, and genocide every day. A situation that is begging for help, but constantly being ignored because YOU aren’t really interested in helping people are you? If your main interest is helping people, what is your excuse for not helping the people of Africa?
Not enough oil in that region for you? Not cool to crusade in Africa?
Are you all really that self centered that you only care about yourselves? That as long as we're safe, it's fine for thousands of others to die. Do you only care about your wallets when you go to the pump? Being that the dying people in Africa would never attack us or our religion so who cares right?
You should be ashamed to call yourself an American.
Not only was this opportunity to unite the world squandered, you’ve managed to turn the world against us. There is no respect for us in the international community. Our leaders are laughed at or painted as war mongers and greedy self serving colonialist.
And no, they are not wrong for doing so. This administration's actions justifies everything.
Do NOT think for a second that since we are the most powerful country and therefore everyone should bow down to us. That is exactly the mentality of this administration and like a narcissistic little boy, it gets you nowhere in the real world. We’ve become isolated and our ideals about democracy, liberty and freedom crumble a bit each day.
This hyper-patriotism towards country or religion is the cause for all our problems. This is the dark side of esteem not just in the people, but in the culture. Everyone (and every culture)would like to think they’re special, and that they’re irreplaceable. In your small world, this is probably true. However, in the grand scheme of things, very few things are significant and/or unique.
The sooner everyone starts thinking that way, the sooner we will realize that the little petty things doesn’t matter. It’s the big picture that we’re working towards.
You may think I’m just some left-wing nut and that this is just another political bashing of the right-wing Neocons. To tell you the truth, I could care less about the left or the right. I care about the human state in general. I care about saving the specie, not any country or group of people.
Never have I had so little hope or optimism for humans.
