    don't be a hypocrite, strike.

    you've been picking and choosing what deserves your considered responses to all along.

    *ahem*

    strangly enough, when you say insurgent you think of bad people... but to me the first thing that comes to my mind is liberation from oppresors.... not saying that USA is the oppresor... just that it comes to my mind every time I hear that word... and I think I'm not the only one here...

    It might be perhaps that here, the ones that stood against the evil spanish empire were the insurgents..

    Strange thing how a word has different meanings to the people....

    Sorry to bother the course of the conversation... carry on

    Why do you keep telling people who answer your questions, the way they see it, that they didn't answer your question??? They answered! Just say you didn't like the answer they gave.

    You obviously have an opinion about this and in your mind, you think you have the correct answer.

    So just spit it out, son.

    I don't know, why don't you ask a citizen of Cuba if we had the right to police the world in 1898.

    Or ask a French citizen from 1918 if he was happy the US got involved in that "European War."

    Better yet, ask a holocaust survivor if they were pleased the US policed the world in 1945.

    Ask the Germans in western Germany if they were happy to have us, and not the Soviets in the backyards.*

    The Kuwaitis were pleased that the US liberated them from Saddam.*

    The South Koreans appreciated US intervention in 1950*

    Other than the Somalians and the Vietnamese* most people have gladly granted the US the right to police the world.

    *All these events are post WWII and are therefore policing actions of the United Nations and not of the United States.

    America isn't better than anyone else. America just hides its true side and makes itself look better by looking kind to those it chooses. Plus america picks its fight when it comes to dealing with an issue.
