    we did not achieve our wealth through conquest. I'm sorry. I didn't realize you had a reading disability. Let me make it simpler for you.

    After america existed.... Through conquest if you choose to see it that way.... they grew their wealth through means other than conquest

    I understand that when threads get this long we have to keep going in circles because people don't read through everything thoroughly.

    Ok, so without the actual country and its natural resources, the wealth still would have been created. That's what you're saying. Where do you think the wealth came from, if not the resources of the conquered country? Again, if I come and conquer your land, do x, y or z with it and get rich as a result, my wealth isn't a result of conquest?
    I'm sorry. I didn't realize logic was a problem for you. If condition y is necessary for result x, x is dependent on y. If I come to Florida, steal your car, soup it up and sell it for a profit, then by your reasoning my profit has nothing to do with the theft.

    mods I'm all for closing this thread.

    Look people, go ahead and be anti-american. I'll go on about my own life and you'll blow up planes with my friends and family on board. I'm not going to argue it anymore.

    Fill, you know being anti-american is not a crime. I can understand that you don't like it, but being anti-american is not forbidden. Commiting crimes and being anti-american are two completely different things. Welcome to the world outside of the United States. Not everyone loves you and not everyone is keeping his/her mouth shut. Democracy lives from different oppinions. You will have to respect that.

    I wonder how we got from an american criminal to socialism and native americans in just one thread...

    nvoigt, the difference is I don't speak ill of any other country. I don't claim that civilians killed in the name of politics got what they deserved because their government stood a certain way on something. it is certainly "allowed" to be anti-american but why is it so damn popular? Is it really legitimate to say that civilians killed by a terrorist had it coming to them because of the government's policies? I think not. And that is how this thread turned.

    It's very interesting that you tend to see the world in us (USA) and them (rest of the world). Talk about generalizing!

    No, it's not. But some Americans, and you seem to belong to this group, have to learn that being anti-american is NOT the same as being a terrorist. I don't like american soldiers marching into Iraq for example, but I'm not blowing up your planes either. Stop thinking black and white, the world is not that easy. Anti-american does not mean pro-terrorist. You are not alone in this world, there are billions of other non-terrorists out there.

    What does this have to do with Native Americans? Some
    of us are part Native American and the United States
    bought the terrority from the French.

    Just look at the evil Germany has done
    over the years. Now Iraq has had a compaign of
    ethnic cleansing which has killed 1000's of it's own
    civillians and we should stand by?

    you people are really dense

    This...

    was a joke. And I do think that those who justify the killing of civilians by blaming government policy are just as bad as terrorists themselves. They are the ones who give murderers legitimacy.
    From Zewu:
    I believe this is much a result of the American conservative society. It leaves many people at the bottom of it's pyramid, who will rage. It's police is much for protecting the upper-class and the middle-class from this under-class rage, which will only cause more rage.
    I'm not going so far as to say that this makes Zewu as bad as a terrorist but his comment is dangerously close. And this is what started the whole thing

    You stood through 3 years of evil germanys ethic cleansing until someone attacked US homeland. But we had no oil, so why should you have intervened back then...

    Oh, and I think the pyramid comment was inner-american, no terrorist stuff.

    I'm truly amazed at this comment. Most people who think our foreign policy sucks say we should keep our nose OUT of their business. The reality is we were involved in WWII before we actually officially got involved. We supplied pilots, money, weapons etc. The truth is, when nations have asked for american help they have typically gotten it. We ran in to deal with Milosovich didn't we? Did that have anything to do with oil?

    The sniper is killing innocent people and Zewu is justifying it with government policy
