The aid we sent several years ago to aid the victims of the Indonesian tsunami? Not a penny coming. Basically, you'd see an America that wouldn't lift one finger to help where people were truly in need of it.
As for the so-called War On Terror... it's the war on Radical Islam which is a threat to the rest of the world. Al-Qaeda and radical Islam declared war on us years ago, when they slammed two planes into the WTC. Bin Laden helped the mujahadeen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, then got pissed when the kingdom of Saudi Arabia allowed American troops on Saudi soil to defend from a possible Iraqi invasion. There is no oil and drugs involved in this, or we would be seeing a huge influx of this and drops in prices for oil.
Iran is a threat, they would sell nukes to terrorist organizations who would use them on us. We are called the Great Satan and the current Iranian president believes himself to be the leader of a movement to wipe out Israel and challenge America.
America is killing far more people than it's saving with the wars actually so that alone is a moot point. Even if America doesn't help those countries there are European countries that might. Besides there is a bigger picture to what Ron is trying to do.
Radical Islam actually was never a threat before media made it so. It's only a threat because certain powers that be wants it to be.
We do have oil in there don't we? Countries don't wage wars out of the blue. Why the hell aren't we waging wars on North Korea? Aren't they a threat? Do you think for yourself or let the mainstream media do the thinking for you?
Think about it. Where people even talking about terrorist before 9/11? No? Because they where never a threat to begin with. The war is nothing more but geopolitical land grab. it's the resources they are after and nothing more.
Besides positioning themselves near China and Russia seems to be like a good idea.
Besides do you seriously think that Iran is a threat while countries Like U.S, Russia and China actually have nukes also? Not to mention so many more Nukes. I would believe Arabic countries would never even consider attacking any of these above mentioned.
It's talk. Iran will never challenge America. All this will do will lead to another massive bloodbath that will kill millions but I guess since we are already tribalistic enough it's ok to hate those terrorist.
This is what we call prejudice, injustice and inhumanity. The one you where defending so brightly in your own text.
And let's not even talk about how damaging the wars are for economy. Instead of actually sending this money to build up things the wars are only sucking people dry and only furthering conflicts. When has the wars achieved anything really?
How many people have died? How many more need to die for people to get it? How many more tyrants does humanity need to endure to actually finally get it that you to people who look down on you are nothing. To them life is meaningless.
If you think it's ok to lust for war in the name of anything than you my friend I believe are brainwashed (would be nothing new here).
If you want to know what wars have done please go and read a history book. Read one of them with full details on horrors one man can inflict on another.
Now ask yourself if you would go to war if your government didn't make an enemy for you? War on terror does not exist. If people claim that they are so smart why don't they stand up for what is right?
