To Orange. Yeah, it's the best!
To Marcc, unfortunately it's not about giving money. It's about control. When we give, we get, or we don't give. Let me explain. When we give aid, it's always under preconditions. When a country is starving, we give them aid... for the rights to place a military base on their soil or for access to their mineral rights. We don't help others. We just feed our own self interests, and have for quite some time now. Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, our interest in these countries is both for financial gain and for strategic military gains.
We've now spent something like 300 times the budget on these middle eastern wars than what we were originally sold. Also, we were originally sold a load of bullshit about going after Al Qaeda, when Al Qaeda is NOT a country or ruling power in any country. Hell, in Iraq, Saddam had Al Qaeda members imprisoned or executed. Why? Because he wanted his secularist government, because it meant more money and power for him. Do you remember being told that the reason we went into Iraq in the first place is because they were in cahoots with Al Qaeda. They would mention 9/11 EVERY FUCKING TIME that they would talk about Iraq, and there were ZERO connections! Then why? Why did we take out Saddam? Well, when originally sacked Iraq back in the 70's we... WE installed Sadaam as a puppet dictator and we got all the oil and strategic millitary bases. Then, Sadaam said, FUCK YOU AMERICA, and no more oil and military bases for the US. Well, we weren't having that, were we? It's a giant fucking load.
News from any major news source in the United States is coerced and sanitized of any real info that we might need to come to our own conclusions. Why do you think we are now obsessed with Kardassian sisters, and not with world news anymore? That was the whole plan. They slowly, but surely, switched all news cycles more and more to pointless entertainment news. Remember when you were young and the entertainment part of the news took up 2 minutes out of the hour? Now its, "BREAKING NEWS!!! Kim Kardassian has a fucking sandwich with Paris Hilton!!!" It's not like this outside the US. Around the globe, people are talking about America and all the fucked up shit we do, and all the new laws we've passed to take away freedoms of our own citizens. They won't even TALK about that shit here, but they ARE talking about everywhere else. Why?
I'd wholeheartedly suggest you all watch this:http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4Z9WVZddH9w
