Americans are the dumbest, most ignorant, juvenile and asexual people on Earth. Americans are not aware how astonished "foreigners" are at our ignorance and violence. Americans can read and write, yet our formal and informal education is strictly local and we are not taught to think or feel - only to come up with the right answer. This is a shallow empty nation of shallow empty people. Our culture avoids introspection to it's detriment. Culture is enduring. Culture like personality and character, cannot easily be changed.
We have a virgin as Secretary of State.
A President who has hallucinations.
President Bush's claim to Abu Abbas (not reported nationally- only in the Israeli newspaper, Harretz) that he invaded Iraq and Afghanistan because God told him to is available and known in the US but ignored.
Liberal Americans cannot blame the media anymore or George Bush or 911.
Americans must acknowledge that it is the people of America who are culturally and psychologically flawed and deprived. We have become awful. All of us. Something is wrong with a people who are made aware of their horrible acts of predation, abuse and torture and then say that we must support the troops (who the government uses and then throws away) in Iraq.
Troops should not be supported but disbanded. And they should be called what they are: Child Puppets. They are under a hypnotic spell and act in vile ways as all soldiers have throughout history. Ask the people of Falllujah how they feel about American troops who are "just following orders." A large percentage of the troops are base individuals...criminals. No one can say that except his or her victims- and victims are hardly ever heard from. Abu Ghraib and Mai Lai are very common occurrences. That's what John Kerry said. Disband the armies, they are worthless
When the troops return many are unable to completely come out of their trance. They call that Post Traumatic Syndrome. What that means is that they have given up themselves to be used and have acted against their own nature. They have gone mad. Our government and all governments do not consistently care for soldiers after they have fought. That's universal, that's historically true. Soldiers are people who get used.
Something is wrong when those who protest these activities do so mildly for fear of offending, losing their jobs, becoming ostracized or marginalized. Something is wrong when those who do scream out are not heard. But very few are screaming. Very few persist. Something is wrong when MoveOn - born on the high ground -sells out and subcontracts it's protest work to a wimpy "faith based" organization that doesn't protest but holds "vigils". MoveOn is into power now. Move On has decided to play politics for power and profit instead of opposing the war.
That's so typically American.
