> So why do you not tell us exactly when and where each of the persons you > name were when the events you describe? And while you are at it why do >you not tell us exactly what the US did wrong in each of those events? Please, don't play ignorant al of a sudden. On the subject of Saddam's crimes to humanity you seem to got al this knowledge. So how come your memory lacks when it comes to crimes committed by the US? Forgive me for not putting out the whole list of American crimes. You wouldn't agree with it anyway. I guess you think the tumbling over of the Sandinist government in Nicaragua was a good thing for the common people of that country. It will, in your eyes, probably excuse the roll the US played in arming and training the Contra's. Well, I choose to differ on this point of view. Like I choose to differ on the point the invasion of Panama was necessary or legal. I could go down the list, but like I said, I don't think there's much to gain in this. > Or is that I am supposed to accept your conclusions at face value. That > will not happen as I think for myself. I can't escape the thought you get a little help from your government. It seems to me you're blind when convenient and deaf on occasion.You're point of view seems to be narrowed by a bad case of tunnel vision. > I dare you to answer my questions with facts not rhetoric. You might find I > even agree with you sometimes. But you will never convince me that because > my Nation has done things wrong in the past that it can never do the right > thing now or in the future. I can't help to assume you wouldn't accept most facts I could give as facts. Further more, I never said the US is not able to do any good. I just don't think murdering innocent Iraqi citizens counts as such. > Finally, who in the hell are you to tell me what is best for me to do. That > sounds like a fascist who wants to run my life even though I do not even > know if you can run your own life. Read it again, I'm not telling, I'm suggesting. I can't help to notice you use the word fascist frequently and lightly. Use like this tends to inflate the meaning of the word a bit, don't you think (for yourself). For the rest, don't worry, I manage. > The left, to which you apparently stick to like super glue without also > apparently thinking for yourself, has no claim to hold the high ground on > human rights. It has a history of horrible repression in many places > including some of the nations you mention. And the left is more active than > the right in this Nation when he comes to suppression of human rights > particularly freedom of expression of ideas it does not like. I hold no claim. I just said you shouldn't measure with two standards. And the fact the left is more active in areas of suppression, I agree. It most times ain't the right that struggles for peoples rights. They are most times the ones suppressing. Or would you call the regimes in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel, Indonesia, etc leftwing?
