Funny thing came to my mind just recently, With all of those stories on Free Republic on how the world hates us and all that? I wonder if someday the world will gang up on the U.S.
A old quote I remember my pricipal saying when I was in school was "Whatever bad things you do, Will come back to you harder" and it seems after couple of centuries of bringing hatred, segregation and so on to the world. The world may have had enough, The French hate us, The Muslims, The Chinese, The Russians, Part of South Asia, Cuba, Venuezuela, Actually the entire Africa and lets not forget our so called friends in Canada who bring hatred to us when we are not looking.
Pratically the Entire world and it's a matter of time before they get us. I mean if someone on the other side of the world brought hate to us, $cr3w them f***a, But our own neighbors, If we continue like this well probably have no allies left. Canada for one is a critical allie since they are the backdoor to america. Mexico, All they bring is aliens to our wonderful country.
But anyhow I'll leave you see what you think about this, Of course I know we have 26,000 Nukes, But still 5 Billion versus 300 Million, Each american would have to kill 17 people, And since a vast majority of Americans is unable to fight 34 person each.
What do you think people?
If they do we'll be the LAST they ever gang up on.
I think you won't be here long.
Bring on the French.
Finally, in before the ZOT.
They all hate us anyhow, so lets drop the big one now!
Much of the "hatred of America" is exaggerated by our own media because it serves their anti-Bush agenda.
Realistically, there are probably a whole lot of Muslims who hate us because we are the leading world power and aren't Muslim.
There are a fair number of Chinese who think they should be the leading power instead of us, but I doubt it reaches the level of hatred.
There are a small but vocal number of Europeans who dislike certain American policies.
The Muslims who hate us already are at war with us.
The Chinese know that open conflict would be suicidal.
The Europeans are irrelevant.
It's not hate, it's envy.
You sound bezotted, O jihadist buttboy of Al Qanada!
This is satire, right?
Analogy doesn't hold water. America has done more good for the world than all other nations combined. If others hate us it's purely a result of intense envy.
This person thinks you are VERY young and NOT well read.
Took the words right off my keyboard, lol.
What do I think? I think you've been smoking something while your parents were out.
steven1198What do you think?
Since Jul 18, 2005
What do I think? I think you'd have to either A) hate your country, or B) be monumentally ignorant, or perhaps just plain stupid, to even ask the question.
In before the ZOT!
Count me in for 50 at least, more if I can get a crew served
Yeah Right. Take Off Eh. Hoser.
And even if they did, are they going to ALL gang up on us? Absolutely not. They may hate the US but they NEED us. Every one of those countries have run to us many times for help.
And a ZOT to you
You know, that's the first thing I thought of ... this article just plain smells like a DU kinda post.
We send billions upon billions of dollars each year all over the world in aide just because we're asked.
We set nations free from tyrannical dictators, losing our son's lives in the process.
Thats what I think...why hasn't it crossed your mind.
whats with the poor sentence structure an poor quality of thought?
Aspiring to write for the NYTimes are ya?
I assume he is a troll - I was giving him the benefit of the doubt, in case he's just a dumb@ss...
You shouldn't worry Steven; I'm sure they don't hate the likes of you.
America's first, again
Whenever and wherever disaster strikes on the globe, the U.S. responds immediately with relief and medical supplies as they have in Asia, writes Peter Worthington
By PETER WORTHINGTON -- For the Toronto Sun
Thank goodness for the Americans. What would this world would be like without the U.S.?
Especially in times of natural disasters like the Boxing Day tsunami that killed so many and shocked the world into unprecedented humanitarian generosity.
Such generosity often seems muted. Not this time. The world's people have responded more ardently than their governments, and in case after case governments have taken a cue from their citizens, and increased their initial aid response.
Canada is just one example, but typical of the world. Prime Minister Paul Martin started by pledging $1 million, then $4 million, then $40 million and now $80 million -- not because our government now realizes as it didn't before that the catastrophe was so severe, but because Canadians from every strata of society have opened their hearts and wallets.
The U.S. initial pledge of $35 million, later upped to $350 million is just the start. U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell anticipates $1 billion from the U.S. -- double the $500 million pledged by Japan, which will likely also up its giving.
U.S. President George Bush has recruited two former presidents -- his dad and Bill Clinton -- to head U.S. fundraising for the tsunami victims. It is one of those moments in history where the world is united -- and America is leading.
As well as being the world's wealthiest nation, Americans are the world's most generous -- $249 billion given annually to various corporate and private charities.
So a world that failed to anticipate or respond to the genocide of 800,000 in Rwanda, or 2.5 million displaced in Congo, and is still lukewarm in all except rhetoric about Sudan and Darfur, has reacted with humane fervor to the tsunami disaster, which is Hollywood animation come to life.
Pledging money is vital, but it doesn't save lives immediately. Again, that's where the Americans shine.
The first large-scale international relief to the victims was from a U.S. warship, the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln which sent relays of a dozen helicopters loaded with relief and medical supplies into the stricken area. The U.S. military has field hospitals, and soldiers, Marines, sailors who turn instantly into social workers and bleeding-heart aid workers.
And it's not just for this tsunami in the South Pacific. It happens every time there's a horrendous natural disaster -- an earthquake in Turkey, Iran, or the Balkans, mud slides, floods, whatever -- the Americans are invariably first with direct, on-the-spot aid, no questions asked.
Some see the tsunami disaster as a chance for the U.S. to mend fences with the Islamic world with its aid -- showing the people of Indonesia (the world's largest Muslim country) that America is not the devil incarnate.
Maybe this will happen, but not likely.
Ordinary people in the under-developed world rarely view Americans as anything except what's desirable.
The supposed unpopularity of the U.S. is often propaganda and rhetoric, and not shared by the people of the world who, even after 9/11, Iraq, Afghanistan and the war against terror, seek to come to America to live in freedom and prosperity.
Those anxious to get in have no doubts about what America is -- the most desirable country on Earth.
Canada views itself as compassionate, and we are. To a point.
Not so rapid
But we don't react with the speed and passion of Americans. Out vaunted Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) is supposed to react quickly, to "bridge the gap" until formal aid arrives at a disaster scene. The tsunami underlines that ours is a not-so-rapid response team, partly because it exists mostly in theory and partly because we have no way of getting it to a disaster zone -- insufficient transport aircraft.
The announcement yesterday was that DART would begin leaving tomorrow -- 13 days late. Better luck next disaster.
A world without the U.S. would be a sorrier world indeed, especially when leadership in humanitarian causes is needed.
Hate'em back, it works for me.
Mexico hates us because we have a problem being the United States of Mexico.
I think a list should be compiled, officially, of all the countries who hate us. Update it regularly. And then cross their names off the AID list. No more $$, no more food, no more help. The nasty Americans leave you ALL to rot. Eat oil, eat each other.
Dont' let anyone from the 'hate America list' in, seal our borders and deal only with those who value us.
Your bio says you want to publish a book. You better hope your publisher is a patient man.
sniff sniff ... is the the overpowering smell of troll ... sorry DU, you have to take him back.
He appears to be a clever child.
