And especially not the USA, or, how they call themselves in sheer geographic ignorance, AMERICA .... Peru or Chile are America too. But then - for a people who can't take Sweden and Switzerland apart, it might be too difficult to see that one country doesn't make up a continent (except Aussie).
The US is on a downward spiral - intellectually, that is. Not in terms of weapons, oh no. But then - weapons replace intellect. Weapons are the ULTIMATE argument. That's why the US has so many military bases.
One who has enough fire power doesn't have to argue. Huh ? Ah. Bang !
The US is a good example on how a place can be populated by n cultures and nationalities and then get the idea that they've become as one. On false promises. You are in the gutter and you won't become Mr. Sugarmountain because you prayed in front of the Statue of Liberty (......).
Obamacare was in fact a good idea. But no ! How dare the state interferes in private matters ! Ask the homeless close by. Bridges are collapsing, millions on the dole, infrastructure is going down, and you watch an elite getting richer and richer while you run into problems.
Get over it. The US is fucked up. And new wars abroad will probably change public attention for a while "Mission accomplished" (LOL that was a joke), but it will not improve anything in the country. It will eat the investments you'd need at home. Nevertheless people in the US will play Titanic up to the end. "We're going down for the right cause......" ;-)
The world says:
We don't want to be colonized no more.
We don't want to eat junk food no more.
We don't want to be told what's wrong or right by people who don't respect other cultures and values for the sake of profit.
We don't want to lose our identity.
We don't want to play small anymore for other people's interests.
We don't want to be lectured on religion by people wo don't even respect their own.
We're no more ready to be killed for other people's wars.
So, big powers, shove your arms up your ass and try to convince people by using brain that YOU'RE the one and only who have the solutions.
Given you have one.
For the moment brain is out of stock, so it seems. I hope that moment won't be a lasting one.
BTW: This is a call for realism and thought. Not against the people of the US. But to try to make them THINK.
