I Am So Fuckin Sick Of Being Called Anti-American

Just because I dont support the extermination of an entire
race of people, I get called anti-american. What the hell
is wrong with society? When did the United States become a
society of fuckin Nazi wannabe's? I am sick of being the
minority. I am sick of listening to hateful words about
killing. I am sick of being called a pussy and ignorant and
wrong because i dont agree. If we destroyed every single
arab there would still be violence and there would still be
attacks on America. Maybe not instantly but eventually.
Evil is not based on the color of your skin or where you
are from. Our enemies go in spurts. Sometimes it was
Germans, Japanese, right now its Arabs. Destroying them
would only make matters worse in the long run. What gives
us the right to decide which race of people gets to live
and which gets to die? We are not the ultimate power in the
universe. And believe me, if we did try to annialate the
arabs, our allies would no longer be our allies and the
world would eclare war on us and we would lose. Now why
would people in the middle east not like americans..
Hmmmmm.. maybe its because we keep stixking our nose in
their business and keep trying to run everything. Not
because we give a damn about the people but because we need
oil. Take Iraq for eample. Killing/overthrowing Sadam would
be a mistake. Sure, he is evil but its up to the people to
overhtrow him, not us. We dont live there so we have no
right to tell them how to run their country. And besides,
if we did take over Iraq, the entire middle east would
declare war on the United States. More acts of "terrorism"
would occur because it would be a war and the United States
would try and play the victim, knowing full well they are
guilty. But the United States never does anything wrong.We
are perfect. We are the model country. Note the sarcasm.
Personally, i think we need to leave the people in the
middle east alone. if they destroy themselves then its not
our problem. Us interfering in every aspect is causing
tension and i dont blame them one bit for resenting us. I
do not agree with what happened on September 11th but we
had it coming. If we had some country always interfering
with our business and that country kept trying to run our
government, steal our natural resources and kept military
everywhere, we would be pissed and that country would die.
Sometimes people need to look at the other sides
perspective. Violence is never the answer. Mass killing is
never the answer. Sometimes the answer is the easiest and
least violent one but I guess until we get democrats back
in the whitehouse, we'll be stuck making the wrong choices.
Another point to address and I know I commented on all of
this months ago but no one seems to listen to me. Not every
arab hates americans. Most could give a damn about us. 90
percent of people in those countries have other issues to
worry about like feeding their family and do not care about
plotting the United States demise. They say little arabs
grow into big arabs who kill americans. That is not always
the case. Little arabs may join the military (alot if times
it is the only way to get food) but since when is being in
the military wrong. Being in the military doesnt make you a
terrorist and doesnt mean you are going to fly a plane into
a building. That comment is like saying, little americans
grow into big americans who kill people. That is true if
you want to be technical but i dont think americans view
thier military as wrong so why should we view other
countries militaries as wrong? The other misconception that
drives me crazy. People saying all muslims want to kill us
because its in their religion. Come on. Just because the
Taliban claim they were killing us for allah or whatever
they said doesnt mean thats what the religion says. Look it
up or talk to some muslims. Ive done both and violencve is
not s muslim belief. People always want to find a scapegoat
when they feel out of control. Its ridiculous. And whats
even more ridiculous is ive said all of this before and no
one listens and i keep having the same arguments month
after month and it just disgusts me. Alot of americans
disgust me. Who can you turn to when everyone is wrong but
you.
