Actually, Mandarin was my second language.
Good for you. Hope you remember enough of it when they invade.
The assertion that the United States is out to conquer the world is ludicrous.
Based upon what? Your opinion? This is a statment from PNAC
(Project for a New American Century)
The Project for the New American Century is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for America and for the world; and that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy and commitment to moral principle.
American leadership is good both for America AND FOR THE WORLD???
Who fukking decided that??? What makes your consumeristic, shallow society worth striving for, I'd like to know? Your values in America are based upon WHO has WHAT.
As for diplomacy, well, there isn't any. America has managed to go backwards as far as foreign policy.
As for moral principle, I won't even go there except to say that America is morally bankrupt. Your principles are based upon military strength; purchasing the newest fad, you care not a whit for what your imperialistic war mongering government does to other countries. That is why America is despised.
You have not come up with ONE country who admires and aspires to be like the U.S. Why?
From your past postings it seems you believe the U.S. has been out for world conquest since the late 18th century, and that in pursuance of that goal we have been responsible for most of the world's ills and crimes.
Yes, indeed. I couldn't have said it better. Those who don't read history are condemned to repeat it. Your president can't get past My Pet Goat.
Check out how many places on this planet America has a military posted. What do you think that means, if not world conquest? Most of the world's crimes can be traced to England and the U.S.
Unfortunately, that isn't the case and I doubt that you will find many outside of Al Quida to agree with you.
Well, I read more than just FOX news, and NBC/ABC. You keep insulating yourself in your little cocoon, asher. There are many outside of Al Queda who actually would agree with me.
By the way, as is typical with Americans, at least get the name right. It's spelled Al Queda, not Al Quida. Al isn't short for Albert, either.
Try reading THE COLLAPSE OF GLOBALISM AND THE REINVENTION OF THE WORLD by John Ralston Saul. I admit it's a bit tougher than My Pet Goat, but I'm betting you could get through it.
