As my dad mentioned, one of the major reasons the allies went into Iraq was because Saddam treated his people badly and they were liberating them. Of course thats crap, as America does what pleases America. They wanted the oil and they had to make an excuse up.
I bet they don't invade Zimbabwe, mainly because what do they have that America needs?
I don't really know how America can dictate which countries can't have nuclear weapons when America has by far the most and America is the only country to have ever used them against another.
Think you're missing my point. I feel that America is more of a threat to world peace than any other nation or leader and I don't know how long the world is going to go on ignoring this renegade nation's wrongs. Yeah, Iraq violated UN sanctions but America was more than willing to go to war with or without the UN's backing. That just shows that they don't give a crap about what the rest of the world thinks. I can't believe that people out there really believe George Bush wanted to help the poor people of Iraq. Perhaps I am a cynic but I really don't think America ever has other people's interests at heart. Bush is such a retard. Can't believe he wants to bring back anti abortion laws in America and he's inflicting it upon other nations through tied aid.

I think maybe their niceness makes them dumb. Back in the day when i used to chat online ( before i discovered most people were freaky pervs ) I spoke to people from Texas who voted for Bush simply because he was a Texan. No offense but what dumbasses. I can't stand people who blindly follow the crowd and don't think for themselves. I hope England never becomes like that. I couldn't stand it if we lived in a nation where everyone had a gun and sued people for anything and everything.
i lost all my respect for america after the invasion of Iraq. whenever anyone used the oil argument i would dismiss it as anti american propoganda and argue that Bush would not do something so selfish. my main arugment was that a trust fund would be set up into which all proceeds from iraqi oil would be put in and the funds used to help rebuild Iraq (the very words used by Tony Blair). several months later and this fund has failed to materialise just like the so called weapons of mass destruction. the countdown to doomsday has begun...
While I dislike American spelling and "grammar" (take note of the speech marks ) I generally have positive thoughts about the country as a whole. The people have fantastic values, an excellent racial policy and they produce mass media that's everyone (I think) entertained for absolutely hours.
I believe Saddam Huisain was a threat to world peace. If you read about the monstrosities he'd done to his own people, you'd agree. He didn't just command his guards to kill, he killed them personally - as did his sons.
I don't like the fact the British/Australians/Canadians and other English-speaking countries try to immitate Americans. For instance, why do people sing in an American accent? Try it, would you say carnt or c'ant? Would you sing Saturday or Sad'E'rsday? Ah ha! Thought so, you sing in an American accent.
I think it's a pity that more people are complaining about Bush than the really evil people like Saddam in the East. At least there's liberty in America...
But then again, I'm rather odd.
*Untruth & Consequences: How flawed was the case for going to war against Saddam?
*Are Voters in the Mood for an Angry Democrat? That's the main question at the center of the Dean-Kerry showdown.
*The next time Bush tells the nation where he wants to go, it may not be so quick to follow.
*A Question Of Trust: The CIA's Tenet takes the fall for a flawed claim in the State of the Union, but has Bush's credibility taken an even greater hit?
And it continues, magazine after magazine. These were just a few that I selected.
