I don't know why you're "wasting your time" with us. I find this quite interesting, and I'm saddened to know that you consider the exchange of opinions a "waste of time."

However, once more, I believe that you're missing my point. The Senate voted to go to war with Iraq based on the belief that they held WMDs, not because they broke the cease-fire. The pretenses under which we went to war were false/fabricated.

As for the last part of your post, some people view us (meaning America as a country) as "evil" and "aggressive." It all depends how you look at it, and the circumstances.

I fail to see how not saying that America is the world liberator is unpatriotic. I'm not telling you what to do. Rather, I'm asking that, when referring to America in general, you avoid assuming that everyone agrees with you (as evidenced by your constant use of "we" in place of "USA/America").

It groups many people that disagree with you into one group, and I, for one, would request that you stop stereotyping America. We're a group of many people, with a multitude of ideas, not just a single collective that shares the exact same thoughts.

Source? Assuming that this is true:

What you say has merit, but Saddam was feeding his people (just not all of them. As you say, he was only feeding the military). So, because Country "X" makes a deal with Country "B," and people are harmed by this, you say that they are morally wrong?

So, these gifts aren't just altruistic in nature? It's a shame that our aid comes with strings attached, as if the recipient country didn't accept the terms, people would suffer. And then wouldn't that be the fault of both nations? And therefore morally wrong?

Yes, many citizens agree with you. However,

If I remember correctly my geometry correctly, the Transitive Property property stated that, if A=B, and B=C, then A=C (variations apply).

So, God (A)= Knows what's best (B). And the US (C)= knows what's best (B). Therefore, does A=C? According to my math, you're saying that the US is equivalent to God in terms of power and influence?

Please, correct me if I've interpreted you incorrectly.

I'm immensely grateful for our Constitution.

What makes this generation the greatest (I assume that you mean our generation, in this case). Also, what is the point of this statement?
