what happenes in Rwanda is not our problem. Iraq was, they had missles that could have hit israel. I am not vouching that it was justified, but we have no need to bring more soliders into more unknown countries.
oh so, if they hit Isreal it is our probelm but when it is Rwanda it is not. why?

America have weapons that can blow up the world.

Why don't America go to war with America then, based on your logic?

You're in denial.

Iraq = oil rich = american attack with excuse that failed
Rwanda = not oil rich = no attack despite millions dieing of genecide.

Yes, your opinion is quite clear based on the evidence.
if that were the case than the US would have intervened in the countries that are diamond rich. Oil isn't the only resource of value in the world!

but Iraq is easier to topple over - And Oil is a more plentiful, useful resource than diamond.

t'is a point well made.

as for "but we have no need to bring more soliders into more unknown countries" well I assume by the 'VT' as padfoot90's location that he/she is an american. that may explain the 'unknown countries' comment.
I think every adult should be able to name at least 75% of countries.

i am not going to argue with you all, i have my opinions,and you have yours. However, i find it odd that in all this america bashing, no one brings up america's allies as doing anything wrong.

Israel is our ally, Rwanda is not simple really.

Bono- america does not use it weapons (lately). Iraq used them agianst Israel.

there's another reason you aren't taking into account. The fact is that when they went into iraq they had a target. Who would be the target in rwanda? what would happen is what is happening in iraq now. both sides attack you

1.) I never support the majority of UK actions as I have iranian parents myself - Two wrongs don't make a right.

2.) "America does not use its weapons (lately)" - Is that some kind of a joke? They have probably used more weapons than countries will use in centuries...

Yes, America is always killing people, regardless of the excuse they conjure up with zero evidence.

so Rwanda is Americas enemy, that is why it needs no help........I see. :rolleyes:

so, now you kan't call Americas work 'justice' as it feels alright seeing injustice being done and sitting comfortably and doing nothing.

1) Rwanada is not small. It's a damn site bigger than israel, both in size and population (8.5mill compared with 6.5mill last time i checked)

2) "america does not use it weapons (lately). Iraq used them agianst Israel." Iraq fired a few scuds into israel in the gulf war. That was a long time ago
