Think of the Afganistans as Jews in the concentration camps? Like they're the good guys? Is that why they were dancing in the streets are the terorist attacks?
First the Afghans werent dancing on the streets, those were the palestinians. And second, it was the same footage of film being shown everytime of the same 10 or 15 people. Does 10 or 15 people describe the beliefs of millions?
With that said, the news media has been pretty much fueling the fire and giving its audience what they want, reason for hatred and anger. This is how they get their ratings. Of course theyll throw in a little bit of good news here and there, but thats just so they seem like they care about whats happening. Hey this is America, everythings done to make money in some sort of way, even war. Here are a few examples:
1) Do you think during the golf war, the United States was helping to free Kuwait because they thought it was the right thing to do? In actuality it was to keep the price of gas down and a side-effect of their actions would be freeing Kuwait.
2)While Iraq and Iran were in war with each other, who do you think was giving money and arms to both sides? America. They called it duel containment, which basically means let them kill each other so they wont go destroying other gas producing countries.
3) Then theres Vietnam and a ton of otheres which I wont go into.
What Im saying is that most people arent aware of things like this that the US does because the media is not going to report it. Its unpatriotic to talk about things like that and anyways people dont want to hear that the US was at fault for anything. Ive been reading a lot of posts on here that have made me realize that 99 percent of peole living in the US dont know anything about world history, US history, or of other countries or cultures.
Im not going to give my opinion on what should be done about Bin Laden, because I need to do a little more research into the subject. All I know is that the Afghans had nothing to do with the bombing, just a small group of people who arent even Afghans in some cases. Because Timothy McVeigh bombed the Oklahoma building we should bomb his family?
I think all of have to turn the TV's off and start looking for the true facts before we make any judgements, especially people in power because most of them know as little about this matter as most Americans.
Remember, we're humans, before we're Americans. Be patriotic to the human race and not to hatred and racism. Be true Americans.
