What has happened to U.S.?
Me | 10/2/2002 | Me

Posted on 10/02/2002 7:15:37 PM PDT by UnBlinkingEye

What has happened to our image as a beacon of freedom, opportunity and the right way to live?

Much of the world fears or hates us. We have a proclaimed policy of attacking any country whose policies or regimes don't follow our dictates.

Why have we become the biggest bully in the world?

Yeahyeah yeah. We have enough nuclear and economic power to blackmail every nation on earth but we don't. We are not a "bully", what a girlie word, we are just in a position that we do not have to apologize for our existence. We have earned that position while saving this sorry planet from itself more than once. So take your self-flaggination somewhere else.

Take your peace at any costs comments and go back where you came from.

Well this is one American that is glad that President George W. Bush is in office and won't allow himself to be pushed around by peaceniks and UN.

Could care less if the world hates us because we are on the side of Right. United States citizens didn't go fly planes into the WTC's and the Pentagon -- the ARABS did or did you forget that little detail.

You can take your comments and stuff it!

When the regime not following our dictates equals 1000s of Americans dead, yeah.

With respect, your brush is a bit broad. The fellow who callously invaded his neighbor with tanks strikes me as a bit more of a bully than the fellow who threw him out. The guys who shot women in the head in soccer stadiums for religious offenses strike me as more of a bully than the ones who chased them back into their caves. A large number of people who are irreconcilably set on driving the inhabitants of another country into the sea and have attempted to do so by force of arms on several occasions over several decades, seem to answer the description "bully" more closely than we do. One of these people, who is a military dictator of country number 1 above, now wants to build an atomic bomb. Opposing him is termed "bullying." I dissent.

BULLY! For protecting ourselves? You need a shrink. Many countries in this world hate us because we have values - because we love freedom and liberty. THIS President will back down to noone - not if it means American lives. You make me sick to my stomach.

Damn I thought we were being over ran with people from other countries.... Hell hop yourself over to the Immigration threads and you'll find that they are saying people are swarming here by the millions, illegal and legal. Now I don't know why for sure but I suspect it's for freedom to live a better life..... So I'm not sure why you think that people don't want to come to the U S of A.

The bullies are the same ones responsible for the anti-US propaganda.....the VLWC. You will not hear about the vast international support for our President and our nation from the mainstream press. CNN doesn't represent the American people, BBC doesn't represent the British. Iraqi-Americans want us to get rid of Saddam, enslaved Sudanese, starving N. Koreans, all over the world the victims of real tyrants are praying for and cheering on our President and our nation.

People like this tell the world about us:

"Are you going to kill all these people to get Democracy." Helen Thomas to Ari Fleischer, WH Press Briefing on the Joint Resolution on Iraq, Oct. 2, 2002.

Yeahyeah yeah.

The fifth Beatle lives in Texas?

We have enough nuclear and economic power to blackmail every nation on earth but we don't.

Blackmail implies that we have incriminating evidence. We have the ability to destroy most of them with no likelyhood of an equal response.

We are not a "bully", what a girlie word, we are just in a position that we do not have to apologize for our existence.

If you are a man, you sound like a 'girlie' man, has someone pumped you up?

We have earned that position while saving this sorry planet from itself more than once. So take your self-flaggination somewhere else.

Flaggination?

I suspect you won't be the first person to engage in the battle, nor will your child, at least in actual fighting.

Well this is one American that is glad that President George W. Bush is in office and won't allow himself to be pushed around by peaceniks and UN.

Peace is a rotten idea right mommy?

Could care less if the world hates us because we are on the side of Right. United States citizens didn't go fly planes into the WTC's and the Pentagon -- the ARABS did or did you forget that little detail.

I would hope that the world doesn't hate us, mom.

You can take your comments and stuff it!

Aww, the voice of reason.

Yep Iran is really a lot better off without that Shah aren’t they. Yep and Vietnam, not to mention Cambodia, really blossomed after the anti-war crowd got their way huh? You are pathetic.

Bully.

A person who habitually intimidates smaller or weaker.

Like we've done in Panama, Peru, Iran, VietNam etc etc.

Yup, go read Ugly American.

Been there, got paid, got burnt out, trashed the teeshirt.
