    Less abstract bullshit, and more concrete examples.


    You were thinking of a nation or a group of nations, that are soooooo much more civilized than America when you attacked America for having policies that "served our interests".


    Give those examples so we can discuss your claims in context, instead of as airy empty generalizations.


    Do you need me to prompt you with civilized examples?

    Yes, I know. Standing by as the next war is planned, is also not the best thing to do, though.
    People are constantly exposed to disinformation, whether it is the silly stories the governments tell or the silly stories paranoid conspiracy theorists tell.
    But there is a way to get informed.

    THat is a nice strawman you have there. I am sure you are very proud of it.


    I respectfully decline your invitation to join you in playing with it. It is all yours and has nothing to do with me.


    Meanwhile, my final post stands, until one of you lefties grows the balls to address it.



    War, in all it's forms, is terrible. We should only start wars, be they formal wars, or more covert struggles, as a last resort.


    That being said, holding AMERICA to one standard of behavior while pretending that other nations never "do what America has done",


    is the act of a dishonest anti-American piece of shit.

    I never said other countries didn't do bad things. I only said we shouldn't do those things, and another country's actions don't justify our bad behavior.

    Was it illegitimate to bomb Nazi Germany?

    We joined that war for ethical reasons, and we didn't bomb Germany JUST because they had bombed our allies. We retaliated because Germany bombing our allies was unethical.

    What difference does "being informed" make? And when you say that I can only assume you mean "vote for the left". No candidate on either side of the aisle runs on a platform of "more foreign invasions!!" -but we get them regardless.

    Funny, a moment ago, you were acting like such "behavior" was something we should not do.


    BUt when I give a specific example, you get all nuanced.


    What's with that?

    Maybe, if people demand their governments to stop the endless war, it will be stopped.
    You see, millions march for the environment, but who demands an end of the bloodshed and suffering?
    We all would be better off without, by the way.

    No, as a general rule, we should not bomb other countries. However, specific examples require nuance. You don't understand that?
