".... I have found myself how many US citizens
are unaware of how the world views them and the
politics of their country. While americans seem
to believe they are a God given gift to
humanity, most ___citizens of the world___
consider this to be more hubris than anything
else. To many americans this truth is often hard
to accept and denial is often the first response.

"I'm with you Pim. Here is a real marine
General's perspective on the U.S. and its foreign
policies for early 20th century. (I emph. 'real'
since I'm not sure if the Col. Jessup was a
fictitious figure or not.) Spoken by Smedley
Darlington Butler (former U.S. Marines general)
"I spent 33 years . . . being a high-class
muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and
the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for
capitalism…. .." as quoted in "The Corporation"
by Joel Bakan p. 93 .. And today's American (&
other multinational corporate) activities abroad
probably make those of Gen. Butler's time look
like girl scouts selling cookies. 'Gift' to
humanity indeed! ~ Merv

I posted some comments from a writer named

people commented on this;... I continue to
believe, however, that Thompson has made
arguments which need to be heard and considered
if we really want the world to get much better. ~ John Burgeson (Burgy)

  "..why are we hated? While "Osama bin Laden and
his ilk do not in any way represent normal forms
of behavioral resistance to those policies of
ours that are disliked," the fact remains that
there are a lot of people who would not take
violent action against us who still hate us. Why
is that?.." ~ Cheers. John Burgeson (Burgy) Thu
