    This foolish Argument that evil in the world in made by America is another very naive thinking that my liberal friends can't get over.
    America left Iraq, they have been killing each other there. Is that America's fault?
    Like I have said, America is NOT perfect. But the thinking that everyone else is good except America is simply bogus.
    Al Queda kills their women, kills their own people. Sharia Law does exist in Sudan and S. Arabia ... regardless of America.
    Women rights are non-existent in those societies. Is that America's fault?
    Come on people. Let's use our brain for a minute.

      Imperialism's impact on other countries.  U.S. imperialism is the biggest and baddest racist operation in history.  Sure, humans are humans and everybody does it, but the U.S. leads the way.  
      I don't think people against U.S. foreign policies think other's hands are clean.  That would be silly.

        As for imperialism, Britain and France were bigger, badder imperialists that did far worse to their colonies than we ever did; they exacerbated enormous messes like the tribal strife in Africa, the Israeli/Arab rivalry, the India/Pakistan rivalry, and a host of other disputes.

        That being said, imperialism was not the sole driver of strife in those places. Some of those rivalries go back over two millennia, well before there was a Great Britain, France, or United States

        •  rife. I like that word. (0+ / 0-)

          Size, scope, weapons involved, complexities, numbers killed, numbers displaced, number impacted, all factors combined I'd have to disagree.  U.S. imperialism takes the cake.   And just because imperialism hasn't been the sole driver as you say, it was still racist and murderous under Britain and France as it is now under the U.S.  What are the other inaccuracies?  Rife indicates quite a few doesn't it?

      I never once said America wasn't good. America is great.

      And I hate to say it, but we have some of our own Sharia law problems right here in North Carolina and Texas.
