America, The Great Satan?
by Stu Cohen
America doesn't do enough to help other countries.
America has an ongoing record of generosity that is unmatched. We and our allies defeated Hitler's Germany, Imperial Japan and Fascist Italy. Then we fed them, rebuilt their countries and welcomed them as friends. No country has spilled more of its own blood or spent more of its treasure, in helping other countries.
What do other countries do after winning wars?
America is a racist country.
Middle Eastern, Asian and African countries calling America racist is a wonderful hypocrisy. America has, and is working on its racial problems, as few countries have. In many countries, racial, tribal and religious hate is national policy. Only the western democracies welcome people of all religions, nationalities and races.
Update: Americans recently elected their first black (actually mixed race) president. No other majority white country in history has done that.
Have you forgotten why people from every corner of the world still risk their lives and the lives of loved ones to move to America?
In your search for new home in a fairer, freer society would you emigrate to a Middle Eastern, Asian or African country?
America brought this on itself.
If you do, you probably believe that America is to blame for the murderous events of September 11th, 2001. Please list for me, exactly what punishments American civilians deserve? Name the members of your family that these murderers should kill next.

It's time for clear
The Palestinians, Al-Queda, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, North Korea and their ilk do not want "fairness" from us or anyone else. They want to win.
I don't blame them for it. I don't hate them for it. I don't care what excuses they give, even if they themselves have come to believe them.
See it for what it is.
