not a day goes by where you don't say something incomprehensibly stupid

You mean like how we removed a democratically elected President in Cuba and installed Castro. Or how we stuck our noses into Vietnam to "stop communism". Or how we removed a democratically elected leader in Iran and installed a theocratic one. Or how we then trained and supplied Iraq to fight Iran. Or how we trained and supplied bin Laden and the Taliban to fight Russia. Or how we trained and supplied Noriega in Nicaragua. Then we trained and supplied the rebels in Nicaragua. Then we went after bin Laden, Saddam. Or how about our sabre rattling at Iran recently? Or sticking our nose in Korea, over and over. Or us sticking our nose into the Chechnyan-Russian Federation conflict and sending terrorists from Saudi Arabia to interfere.

As a nation, we deserve this kind of treatment.  More accurately, our government deserves it.  If the terrorists really want to get back at those that they feel have wronged them, American citizenry should not be the target.  They should do some research and go after the big money entities that fund the military industrial complex and back government leaders with shiat-tons of money to get what they want out of the world.  And then, go after the leaders themselves.

Attacking a pretty farking ignorant populace that is only too eager to suck up the government's assessment of things is not going to accomplish a single farking thing.  They attack citizens, the government tells the citizens who did it and who to hate, the citizens believe it, and the government goes on doing whatever the hell the rich entities tell them to.

I know! John Bolton was an assclown and brought shame to the organization!

And screw all those kids who learned to read or were treated for diseases under UN programs, not to mention the absolute waste spent on rebuilding impoverished countries after natural disasters. we all know the US has done far more for Haiti than the UN ever did.

And Bush I, with the First Iraq War - what a joke that he used the UN to build a coalition of over 100 nations to give legitimacy to his invasion. His son sure learned what a waste the UN was when he went in with a coalition of the willing - it turned out way better!

I'm only insulted that you think I'd pay attention to infowars or Glenn Blech or Gleen Beck.  Just because I'm conservative doesn't make me willfully blind and stupid. Like I said I'm not terribly informed about the U.N.  I only know them mostly from pop culture references and these kinds of news stories. I'm sure the U.N. does plenty of good at the ground level, but there seems to be a disconnect with reality as far as many of the speeches given at the general assembly.  Though it is possible I just live in a bubble or something.  As if someone set up this place where I could just say whatever I wanted, often purposefully against the presiding authority, and get away with it.  Huh...interesting.

In 1939, FDR called for the combatant nations in WWII to agree to never bomb civilians.

By the end of the war, the US had killed 500,000+ German civilians through bombing. In one raid on Tokyo, we burned to death 100,000 civilians. We used two nuclear bombs on Japan--the only use of nuclear weapons in war to date--and killed more than 250,000 civilians with them.

It's understandable that SOME people would have a problem with a country that went from saving millions from starvation in the Soviet Union to annihilating civilian populations of enemy countries. The Nazis championed that tactic from the start; we began differently.

However, as someone once said, the greatest moral failure the United States could have made in World War II was to lose the war. That we didn't do.

The fact that we, as a nation, are incapable of realizing our foreign policy dick-waving is the reason so many people around the world hate us is why things like Boston will continue to happen. It's much easier for us to believe they hate us because we're so damn awesome since the alternative would require some empathy and introspection, and perhaps the possibility of shattering our puffed up exceptionalist view of ourselves, and we can't have that.

I guess that's why I'm so numb to this and other tragedies. Yeah, they suck but they'll continue to happen until we take a real hard look at why they happen. Until then, don't ask me to give a damn and I won't say I told you so the next time it happens, and it will.
