    Link to some by way of example. You keep talking in generalities where only you know what you really mean.

    Fair enough. Here's a link that tells about Radio Sawa

    Radio Sawa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Radio Sawa (Arabic: راديو سوا‎) is a 24-hour 7-day-a-week Arabic language radio station broadcasting in the Arab world. The station is a service of the Middle East Broadcasting Networks, Inc. and is publicly funded by the Broadcasting Board of Governors and the U.S. Congress.
    ...
    The station's goal is to promote pro-American attitudes to youth in the Arab world.
    So it's a radio station meant to spread pro-American propaganda to Arab youth. Now that we know what it is, here is a link to some of the songs being put forward directly from Radio Sawa's website:

    http://www.radiosawa.com/content/saw...02/228245.html

    Please note on the page that the song "Love More" by Chris Brown, featuring Nicki Minaj, is listed. Although you can't get to the video from the website anymore, here's the song



    Listen to the entire song, especially the lyrics by Nicki Minaj.

    Now the very honest truth is that I am an American, and I do like Nicki Minaj because I can very much relate to what she talks about. I like her style, like the way she looks, and like what she is about. That's on a personal level, and it probably has something to do with the fact that we both are black. But straight up, it's an example of a decadent culture. It is the part of the cultural propaganda effort that is being funded by the US government.

    Since you got me thinking about Nicki Minaj, here's a little taste. Listen at your own risk, be forewarned. I tell you this for true, a man does not stand a chance against a woman. Only higher intervention can save him.



    One can only pity men. ROFLMAO!!!!!

    It's an empire. Empires that run the world generally have reason to be, lol.

    That concept has already been addressed and shot down in this thread. Sorry slick, it just ain't there. It's only the mind in concert with egoism under the influence of ignorance playing tricks.

    What values do we seek to impose on others?

    Whatever you and your other little internet leftist cadre concluded in the last orgasmic agree-fest session is of no real significance to reality. The US has dozens of military bases all over the world that covertly "run" the planet whether you like it or not.

    Nice words slick. Typical of hubris filled with many flaws. Prominently, glaringly if you will, is the use of the word covert. Flawed because not only is it covert, it is overt. That is one flaw. Another flaw is that you appear to think that US control of the world is absolute, and that is simply not so. The US has a preponderance of power, THAT SHOULD NEVER BE CONFUSED WITH ABSOLUTE POWER. There is a big difference, and one reason why the US has so many problems is that some very influential people in the US attempt to conduct US foreign policy AS IF the US had absolute power in the world, and that is simply not the case. But it is true that the US is the world's sole superpower, and currently has no serious competitor in the role. But again, that is only a preponderance of power.

    Movies are made and if others want to watch them they do... same with music. Nobody is trying to impose the MTV music awards and that little slut Miley Cyrus bending over on the world. The world also listens to Taylor Swift and Jack Johnson. The world watches Miss Potter about the innocence and beauty of Beatrix Potter writing Peter Rabbit, Finding Neverland and the beauty and imagination of Peter Pan. We are imposing those values on others as much as the filth that you seem to only see.

    I have lived in other countries and visited many more... the USA is not imposing anything. People either like US products or they don't.
