    true about the fossil fuels, though i think China, USSR and the like would waste plenty as well, if the us wouldnt spend its resources someone else would



    every country has some corruption, the US is still a DEMOCRACY and the final decision is still held by the people of the US

    altough some northern european countries are more democratic the US is still a model against many, many countries
    All countries are corrupted to some extent indeed, but the U.S. stands out when it comes to meddling with other country's political affairs UNINVITED. And no, the final decision is not held by the people of the U.S. That should be common knowledge by now.

    I know 2 militants that told me they went to Syria a couple of years ago and had several lethal battles with the Syrian army.
    When they returned home losing some of their friends, they were ordered to stay quiet. You don't know half of the political/tyranicall involvement of the american govt. on foreign affairs. (yet, I hope for you)
    well ty for not correcting me on those points, what you said was kinda true but with the absence of the US things woul have probably gone much worse

    on the ME: many of the ME countries ha(d)ve totalitarian regimes with tough islamic law

    the opressed will always outlast the opressor however the path could be VERY bloody

    Re: Why do so many ppl hate the US?

    Because here in this country we have the most spoiled, egotistical, self righteous ass holes on the freaking planet.
    I hate the imperialistic way American politicians try to own up the world at the expense of everyone else, including it's very own citizens. This country deserves to be hated because we have all the money, power, and influence and yet it's not enough for the powers that be.
    Also look at the things the C.I.A and U.S military have done. Those pics of soldiers abusing their captives while the officials rail against people like Saddam and Osama (who they funded in the first place).

    Re: Why do so many ppl hate the US?

    Main reason why people hate the U.S is do to it's government.

    Why?

    Simply because this government will do anything it takes to get what they want even lie about looking Osama bin Laden in Iraq so they can get a simple Gas from the country.

    Please forward that to the Red Army.
    Stalin didn't even recruit the pelt-hunters from the Ural-mountains.

    *sighs* Every country has its problems and bad people. But each one has its good people and benefits.

    That being said I won't generalize and say anything about the US or any other country.

    And why does it appear to be so difficult to simply carry tolerance within this world and upon these topics, even in disdain or lax as you have shown admirably.

    Back that up with evidence, please.
    And they did drive their scientists away. The scientists would've been much more useful in Britain and without Oppenheimer and his American funding we'd have no MAD principle and no radioactive blood on Japanese soil.

    well yes the us is meddling in foreign affairs, this whole thread is about that, it might not be ideal but their intervention (or the possibility of one) generates some kind of stability and predictability

    if the there was no US noone would interfere if NK one day decided to nuke SK


    and ofc the final decision isnt held by the people, the US isnt a direct participative democracy, in a country of 300M its not possible (it would be chaos, + most ppl are not informed enough to make most decisions) a indirect representative democracy is much better

    What I was trying to say was that your vote means squat. period. :/
    If it did, Ron Paul would be pres by now, the Fed would have been abolished, there wouldn't be 14 trillion missing, tax money would be way lower, all troops would be called back home saving billions on foreign military expenses, homeless ppl rate would be way low to 0% (hopefully)
    Even a child could have managed this country better and with more morality. It pisses me off that there are americans who defend their govt. Like their govt. actually functions in the interest of the ppl.You can love the country without loving your govt. right?

    You do know that the Korean conflict was a product of the Cold War, don't you? Without the US there'd be no such conflict.

    ofc there wouldnt be, it was an example, surely in a world with the USSR and whatever would have happened in Europe if there was no US in the war similar conflicts would arise

    Re: Why do so many ppl hate the US?

    Because we're a bunch of bastards made up of people that other countries didn't want and now we're a mixed plate of people that invented the internet so that people can proudly state that the U.S. is bunch of fat, corrupted and greedy Sonova B-word and is the cause of everything wrong int the world. Ergo, spreading the hate built up on stereotypical reports from any media source that supports their reasoning.
