Isnt that still a contradiction?
Of course it is not. America could have dealt with this terrorist funding without going to any other country, freezing the accounts of those who were doing it. That is not policing the world rather stopping terrorist funding.

So its fine to take care of the UK's problems by freezing assests, but its not okay to take care of the middle east's problems by getting rid of a dictator who has attacked americas allies?

You were not interested in the war of terror until you were attacked, yet Britian had to face over 30 years of bombings and innocent people dying whilst you did nothing.

True, however it was only after 9/11 attack that you pronounced a world wide war on terror, before that, you couldn't be bothered with the rest of the world's terrorists.

Do you think that the US has a responsibility to police the entire world? Most people critisize the US for being overly involved in foreign affairs, are you asserting that we are less involved that we should be?

Has England been actively involved in resolving terroist conflicts such as Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Sudan, East Timor, etc...?

You hate Americans because big movie companies from the US dub over voices on anime films?

You have to be kidding me!!

Sierra leone has British troops in it now peace keeping and east timor is a former Portuguese colony.

You must realise that Britain, a country of 60 million, cannot commit to peacekeeping its former colonies. Nationalism, a by-product of colonialism, is stronger than occupying troops (as seen in Iraq at this very moment.)

Wow, way to go wiwarin. I had never seen someone succinctly put together the idiotic Catch-22 that will always prevent loonies around the world from ever liking the US. It's a shame you're one of them.

Wow, Canuck havnt seen you in a while.

As far as I am aware, Britian sent troops to Sierra Leone in 1999 only after the UN peace deal. Most of the violence took place in the early and mid nineties. Like most 'aid' to Africa, it takes place only after most of the atrocities have occured.

- the US did contribute to acheiving peace in Northern Ireland. Bill Clinton mediated in the Northern Ireland and Israel-Palestinian disputes.
- because 9/11 altered the perception of terrorism. it moved from a national to global issue
- the IRA did and does not seriously threaten the security of the United States of America.

you hate the Americans because they took a policy decision towards terrorists that you now advocate we take against Al-Qaeda?

they have dealt with terrorist funding. they removed a regime that was subsidising palestinian terror and exposed another corrupt institution that was indirectly funding a dictator, terror and brutality to the tune of at least 21.3 billion dollars.

how do you propose that the US shut down French, Russian, Chinese arms trade deals with Arab nations, if you believe they should? do you hate these nations?

neither was the rest of the world. 9/11 changed a perception on terrorism that threatens the world, or at least the Western democratic world. America with the support of allies such as Australia and the UK are willing to fight that threat. what is the rest of the world doing to help the fight against the rest of the world's terrorists, and do you think the rest of the world has an altered perception? and do you hate them for it?

As one of our philosophy lecturers said: "Everyone is entitled to an opinion, just keep it to yourself"
Andy Worhole (however you spell his name ) once said "Opinions are like ***holes - everyone has one."
