A "hero" is someone who bombs the citizenry of three SE Asian countries into oblivion and then whines and kvetches about some of those missing heroes.
A "hero" is someone who sits miles high above the citizenry of three SE Asian countries and bombs them into oblivion.
A "hero" is someone who supports a criminal government that perpetrates these continuing war crimes, these continuing acts of terrorism.
There are lots of American heroes.
Perhaps, you should lead by example, by enumerating how Canada, your country, has been a role model of good international relations? Please include that whenever Mother England needs assistance from her Commonwealth Nations, someone advises Canada to join their effort. I thought Canada usually complies, since Canada is the loyal "sidekick," in my opinion to Mother England. Sort of like the Cisco Kid and Pancho, or the Lone Ranger and Tonto?
Regardless, just giving a litany of what America did that was not in JTT's liking is not the best way to teach (assuming JTT wants to teach). Teaching by example is better, I believe. So, how should the U.S. learn to emulate Canada? Join the Commonwealth Nations? However, I'm afraid the U.S. likes its independence, especially from Mother England, since the U.S. was once a colony and was not treated respectfully in that capacity, as I learned in school.
Regardless, I would like to learn how Canada might be held up as a role model, since if JTT criticizes the U.S., I would have to believe that JTT is talking from a position of being a citizen of an exemplary nation. I would not want to think that JTT is the "pot calling the kettle black."
