    Still looking for quotes and links demonstrating our arrogance.

    We are big on doing things "my way or the highway ". All for the fighting of communism/terrorism/democracy of course.
    Since you've put together a very simple list and a simplistic summary I'll provide a very simplistic response.

    Some people happen to believe fighting communism/terrorism/fascism/despotism is a good thing.

    Some people happen to believe fighting for democracy is a good thing too.

    Others think it's better to take the 'high road' and watch while despots run amok.

    Of course, I think we both know the world isn't that simplistic. But if we want to simplify it, there it is.

    So supporting despots in S america is justified? Bombing cities to find one man that results in thousands of deaths is justified? Standing by and watching civilians get slaughtered because our preisdent was too scared for his political career to do anything about it is justified?
    That an intentionally vague enemy of communism and terrorism is a viable reason for any action for any administration?

    Some actions were reasonable and justified. Some were not. We are not an infallible beacon of righteuosness nor are we the Great Satan. Own up to and admit our mistakes and wrong doings while praising and glorifying our noble accomplishments. That is all.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    I've done a quick search of your posts in this thread and nowhere have I found you glorifying America's noble accomplishments in any serious way. I have found, however, odd rhetoric such as this:

    That is all.

    Wow, you can list countries of the world. Congratulations.

    Do you have anything that is actually responsive to my question?

    so when you can't respond to arguments you attack the poster? Petty and childish.

    You'll be ignored until you can respond rationally.

    If it wasn't apparent why all of those countries were mentioned then there's no point in me continuing the discussion with you. Obviously another poster, LaMidRighter, understood the post. Perhaps you should consult his response for some clues.

    No, we’re not arrogant, just perfect and infallible. And if you disagree we’ll kick your ass. Cause we’re the ****.

    We are getting off topic.

    Now in response to what Reverend_Hellhound said, you really don't need hard evidence in terms of links and stuff. You can hear your people saying stuff that seems a bit arrogant and ignorant of others.
