You know, sometime it does seem like USA is the morally worst country in the world, keeping everybody else in check with the abysmally huge military and performing atrocities nearly as bad as the Nazis. At least the nazis were open with their intentions and declared war on all nations before invading them, and sometimes even before that, unlike the Americans. Pretty much every conflict of the 20th century you have been a part of. Pretty much every coup, or revolution, or whatnot, the hairy hands of Uncle Sam can be seen. And American citizens can be held without trial or jury or anything, being tortured in places like Guantanamo Bay and now Trump wants to create such sites on mainland US.
Replace "jew" with "muslim" and it seems like a Fourth Reich to me.
Most Americans are disgusted with Trump's executive order but lets talk about this statement.
If you believe even half of what you wrote here then you are bigger scum than the SS themselves. Why do I say that?
You sure demand a hell of a lot of a country you find despicable. I can think of all the panic you had when trump was dscussing kicking Estonia out of NATO. I can think of non American's on TIF and elsewhere who say crazy shit like "America has the moral obligation to send troops on the ground to restore order in Syria" then those same people would also post "That America has the audacity to invade a defenseless natiion and engage in more 'Nation Building' just like Iraq lololol".
Shit like that reminds me of why people voted for Trump at all. We sure spend a lot of time and money in NATO to defend a bunch of ingrateful entitled Europeans who cry about America's military while at the same time benefiting from it. By America footing most of the global military bill and being in alliances with much of the world other countries have a comparative advantage and can put a larger percentage of their budget on social services like healthcare that we can't afford.
I would really respect your position a hell of a lot more if you were organizing protests in Estonia encouraging the government to leave NATO. If you don't do this then plain and simple your a guy who admits to benefiting from Nazism and that your okay with that.
Fun tidbit: as Muslims who want to enter USA have been thoroughly vetted for ages the current ones in USA are generally richer and more educated than the general population. Same as Jews before WW2 in Germany.
First off, I haven't even heard of anyone kicking us out of NATO. We are one of the handful who pays MORE than the agreed 2% and we have done that for a while.
We had more soldiers on the ground in Iraq and in Afghanistan (mainly in Helmand, pretty much the most dangerous province by the way) per capita then any other nation. I personally know 5 guys who served in Afghanistan. How many of you, who have no connection to the military whatsoever can say such a thing? We had absolutely nothing other than ally ties to USA to make us go there. Unlike Americans, who jacked off while we were occupied by Soviets after WW2, we have shed our blood for America. On foreign soil. We lost our people there.
I was being over the edge on that paragraph to get a reaction. And that is the way that the people in our huge neighbour to the east thinks. Russian media has not stood still, and such statements are issued by-daily. A large part of the world does actually see America that way.
I simply know that it cannot be simply black or white and the American way generally is more acceptable than what our neighbours to the east are doing. With that Cheeto making such executive actions already on the first week I am not certain how long it's gonna last.
I don't consider Iraq as an invasion of a defenseless nation. Iraq could stand on its own in the region. It was simply destruction of a country that was at the time functional and centrally strong. A country that also was a nation, united by ideals. Now there are only remnants of the welfare, economy and stability, and ISIS has taken over most of the country and the rest of the country is split between rival clans. Same in Afghanistan.
If US really wanted to fight terrorism, Saudis would have been the first one to take down. It isn't even a secret anymore that their oil money (from Americans) is funding terrorism.
I honestly think the greatest country in the world right now is China. I am not happy with how some things there are, but they have succesfully brought millions and millions of people out of poverty in recent years. Granted, there isn't exactly full freedom of speech, but they aren't daily harassed either, that thing is quite civil. There may be rampant corruption, but meanwhile the simple Gao's and Mei's have had their life improved tenfold. Maybe USA should concentrate a wee bit on "socialism" instead of invading other countries and they would be the greatest country in the world. The costs of war (of which most of the taxpayers money went to the selected few American corporations) in Iraq alone would have paid for free health insurance for everyone in America many times over.
