“no matter what happens the left will say America is worse”
That's what I read on watchblog.com
To me, there are always at least two sides to the story…and America does not always do that which is right. For instance, do you know of the American general back in the Huk insurrection back after we occupied the Philippines following the Spanish-American war? This general issued an order: “Kill every Filipino male over ten years old.”
Rah, rah, rah America!
DISSENT is ALSO patriotic. If the Neo-Cons want to stop Americans from pointing out America’s flaws, then here’s how to do it:
“Naturally the common people don’t want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY.”The above was said Field Marshal Hermann Goering, at the Nuremberg trials...and, sadly, he was right.
