I make no appologies for our military actions now as none are warranted. Are you saying theirs were?
I guess all I can suggest is to try to diversify your acquaintences. I do not have similar problems.
And sometimes responsibility comes along with being a citizen. Are the words you spoke when reciting the Pledge of Allegiance that you most likely had to recite daily as a child just empty and meaninlgess?
I don't understand how anyone can seriously believe that statement you made. If a bankrobber commits murder while robbing a bank, the getaway driver is also guilty of murder, even though he didn't pull the trigger.
As I have pointed out ad nauseum. . .
Vietnam? You mean Mi Lai?
As for American taking snapshots with corpses in the Gulf, I haven't seen those pictures, but I guess it is in the realm of possibility.
As for your statement about war screwing people up etc.. I can tell from your comments that any views of war you have are all theory.
I am not an appologist for those who would kill us.
what was that about all your American friends being ignorant?
I do not have a knee-jerk suspicion for everything our government does on our behalf (neither do I have blind faith). I do not feel the need to criticize my country at every turn.
I do not make my livelihood by leeching off of a system that I hold in low esteem.
I realize and honor the sacrifices of those who came before me that allow me to live with more freedoms than anywhere else on the planet, that allow me to prosper, and that allow me to do all this in relative safety and security. I realize that there are times when actions must be taken to maintain this freedom and way of life.
I do not hold the belief that war under any circumstance should never be waged. I do not believe that we should kiss the ass of those who would do us harm, simply in the name of temporary safety.
So you are right, I am different.
