I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
And to think of all the libs that said electing Obama would improve our image around the world..........
Liberal Mary Kay Politics at its finest.....
I assume this is supposed to be sarcastic, like we can't stand idly by. How about the brutality of occupying their countries, bombing them from above, and propping up their dictators? If we as a society legitimately care about the brutality that Arabs suffer, we can start by ending the brutality that we inflict on them ourselves (and therefore that we have some control over), rather than the brutality that we can't control.Its been working that way for thousands of years, right? Hey, if brutality is an effect of living in that type of society then so be it I guess.
Sure, as long as "staying out of their business" entails a neutral stance on the Middle East conflict and ceasing to sell Israel weapons at discounted prices that we don't sell to Arab states. I think that stance would be agreeable to most Arabs as well.Then deal with it Arabs, right? As far as Israel goes, then stay out of their business too. You can't have it both ways.
Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

is anyone really surprised at this?
if the US is going to send their armies around the world spreading freedom and democracy when it suits, obviously not everyone is going to be jumping around for joy. how many people have died in iraq over a trumped-up war? where is the humility? where is the apology? where is the accountability? there is none in the US because some people continue to wear the colours of the flag in their hearts and minds without actually seeing what that really means. they are so quick to get their panties in a bunch when any criticism regarding US Foreign Policy is made.
it's about accepting the fact that of the unnecessary evil that exists in this world, sometimes America contributes to it. for the last 10 years Bin Laden has been the symbol of evil in America. don't some of you guys recognize that the US flag is that same symbol to many people around the world? feel free to brush it off as you can't please everyone or we try our best but we can't make everyone happy. that just continues to show how oblivious some of the American public are to the actions committed by the current and past governments. that is what is truly sad.
Why do we fall?
So we can learn to pick ourselves up.
Oddly enough, Obama seems to be losing power, so to speak, about as quickly as an airplane when its engines have been damaged and cut out with a speedy descent, which results in a crashing boom, bang, boink in the end.
