We Americans find this really funny, this JEALOUSY the rest of the world has for us - the contempt they have for us is based on jealousy.
U ppl seem to not understand that everywhere we are in the world, we have been invited. Saudi Arabia, Germany, Turkey, South Korea the list continues. All of these countries seem to graciously except our OFFERS of assistance and it's not our fault that we are the only country offering it. We have not FORCED ourselves upon anyone except those who have ATTACKED us.
North Korea considers the US as its mortal enemy and vice versa but they except our AID such as FOOD, FUEL, NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, MONEY. It's no sweat off Americas back if North Korea goes down due to famine and just COMMUNISM's effects. How about China - the 'companies' there are 80% american and if we passed a law stating that american companies can no longer do biz in China, china would be in the same sorry state as North Korea.
This is a comedy of MISERY and MISERY's company that we americans see. If it wasn't for the US bailing out these countries or confronting these EVIL regimes what do u think the world would look like. It's very EASY for the US to decide to withdraw and once again become ISOLATIONIST - there are growing numbers of ppl who are advocating just that and your lack of support for ANYTHING the US tries just makes their case stronger.
We are the IMF and the World Bank and see very little return for our investments. We must laugh at this to cover the saddness.
We LAUGH at how u dont understand that ending SADDAM's regime will end misery in IRAQ.
We LAUGH that w/o the US in KOREA the entire ASIAN theatre will be brisseling with NUCLEAR weapons.
We DO have a right to limit who has a NUCLEAR weapons, as the more that exist - the more likely they will be used.
I'll end here, I FIND IT incredibly funny that AMERICA is on a ROLL - we're winning arguments, wars, and NEW alliances - I understand you're hatred for US - you're jealous of our UNSTOPPABLE success - I understand that its ENVY - thnx for the :D LAUGHS.:p
