We Speak of Terrorism. America=Terrorism? (Yes, children, you may keep it).

Posted on 04/23/2006 5:29:24 PM PDT by IKScott

I wonder if America is called a terrorist organization now days. In my opinion we literally are. If you look at it from a perspective. We tell countries what they can and what they can't do. If they don't abide we basically go to war with them and change their government and maybe to an extent their culture for them. Is this not a form of terrorism? To force a country to do something against their will. In my opinion it is, but that's just me. An it's not just with Iran and Iraq, which are recent acts of this, but over the years America has picked up the title "The World Police", if you go back in history you see several acts of this. Isn't this a bit hypocritical really? I mean what if the sides flopped. What if it was America being invaded (Probably as foreign countries see it, not being liberated as we see it.), what if it was our government being forced to change, our heritage and culture being altered. Can one really say that they would be comfortable with that situation? I would think not, but then again there's always the possibility. I hear a lot of "Well Iran is a hostile country", I imagine though that foreign countries considered us hostile, their stance would probably come from our recent acts; Afghanistan, Iraq, and now a situation with Iran. Would that mean that we should also be forced to destroy our nuclear weapons, stop all uranium enrichment in America, and not to mention the power shortages that we would start to have if we where stripped of our nuclear power plants.

P.S. This was not intended to offend anyone, it was merely a speculation. Maybe I will get some feedback for a good discussion/debate on this one. By the way please excuse any grammer/spelling errors in this reply.

Exactly. Because we all know no country but the US has ever invaded anyone. Saddam didn't invade Kuwait. Iran won't nuke Israel if they get the chance. The Sudanese aren't committing tribal slaughter in Darfur.

You can play with the word "terrorist" all you want. We are at war with fanatical Islam. Terrorism is simply the method of the enemy. We must fight the Wahhabists, Mujahideens, and Jihadists, or we all die and the banner of Islam will fly over our heads.

There is so much idiocy here that I almost don't know where to start. So I will grab at random.

We tell countries what they can and what they can't do.If they don't abide we basically go to war with them and change their government and maybe to an extent their culture for them.

Please name for me one case where we did that where the country in question was not shooting at us or sheltering people who were shooting at us?

Yeah we tell them what to do all right. Don't shoot at us. It is pretty simple really.

Okay I might have used terrorism a bit loosly. That being the case just reread the whole article using the word bully instead. So all of you don't even consider the idea of America being a bully or terriost as I used it by telling other countries what to do, then when they disagree we blow them up. If some country tried that to us, we would consider them a bully or terriost country. So why is America so much better than other countries. Old Old saying, Treat others as you wished to be treated. America definitly doesn't follow by that rule. BTW how many of you actually read the post or just the heading?
