pdee: Isitoveryet: pdee: Its their money. Its theirs to spend how they choose. Unless you think we should go over there in force to change their government to suite you. And its still not our fault that the money stays at the top. If I buy an product its not my fault the CEO makes 500 times more money than the guy sweeping the floor.Translation:Our money does not make them poor.you are right, it's not our fault! we just give them our money then it's their to do with what they please, we are just innocent little angels here, we can't make the money we spend be used appropriately as a matter of fact, we are forced to deal with the bad guys, we didn't have any control over anything once we let go that money!& by the way you're a lousy capitalist if you think your money has no influence.I stand by this commentintelligent comment belowThey hate you because your oil money corrupts their countries and causes such huge poverty and ignorance of the population.So if we did not give them money they would all be rich? If not for our dirty money they would all be peaceful secular progressives? Without oil money they would have long ago switched to democracies and treated their women as equals?Giving some people money does not make other people poor! Giving 1 person money does not put another person in poverty.Are you so dense you can not understand that?
Happy Hours: The My Little Pony Killer: No, they hate us because we bomb the bajeezus out of them, and you know what? I don't blame them one little bit.When was the last time we bombed Iran? Or Syria? Or Jordan?
Gyrfalcon: We supported Samuel Doe because he agreed to let us use Liberia as a staging port against the Soviets and so he'd license our leaky oil tankers out of his country to avoid US regulation. We supported Mobutu Sese Seko because he agreed to fight the Angolan communists in the jungles of Zaire and save us the trouble. We supported Saddam Hussein when he agreed to fight Iran in the 80's, and agreed to support the Shah in Iran in the 60's because Mossadegh was too "populist" for the CIA's palate at the time. We installed Pinochet in Chile after making sure the "populist" democratically elected Allende was assassinated. Saddam, the Shah and Pinochet all got airdrops of cash from Uncle Sam for their agreeable stance.
beta_plus: The difference between Romney's supporters and Obama's 47% is that Romney's supporters just want to be left alone.
beta_plus: They actually don't have a problem handing over their money to buy peace, but 45 years of doing so has not brought it and it has become obvious that it never will.
beta_plus: Not only does Obama's 47% want every last dime of Romney's supporters
beta_plus: they want to kill them as well.
beta_plus: But Romney's supporters are clearly all elitist racists and deserve what's coming to them.
beta_plus: That's the crucial difference between America and Sweden. When a rich Swede signs his tax bill, he doesn't worry if he's paying to raise the kids that will murder his children.
Jackson Herring: They hate us for our long, girthy, veiny penises.

Lost Thought 00: FarkedOver: Frankly, I'm surprised central and southern american countries don't hate us with more passion. The U.S. has been farking with them for as long as we've been a nation.Everything comes down to money. Most of them make their living selling us stuff (food, mainly). Those that don't depend on the US for money (aka, Venezuala due to their oil) can afford to be more flexible with their foreign policy
