You’re not voicing anti-USA sentiment? That’s the best one I’ve heard yet. I’ve already mentioned that I’m not here to defend the U.S. government. You are so deeply entrenched in your bias that you laughably say the opposite. It’s blatantly obvious what you’re doing here.

Regarding your statement that the U.S. military has no business in many countries around the world — you’re preaching to the choir on that one. I agree with you. It really bothers me that our intelligence agencies and government decision makers have put us in many wars and conflicts throughout the world

That said, the problem with those like you who harbor anti-American sentiment, is that you base it on the actions of a select few people in the government who make decisions to go to war. You conflate this with the American citizens, who have little-to-no control over what the government decides.

The USA is the greatest danger to world peace? If you believe that, then I have a bridge to sell you. I cannot possibly speak to all of the decisions that this country has made. Though I can assure you, I’d never want to live in a country whose government and military simply sat there and did not respond after getting walloped by a terrorist attack. Even France — a country who would seem to be more in line with your thinking — viciously struck back at the terrorists who harmed its citizens and also escalated its bombing of countries in the Middle East. It’s all relative.

What you painfully fail to understand is that you cannot equate the actions of a few rogue terrorists whose sole intent was to murder as many people as possible for no logical reason, with the government of the most powerful nation in the world.
