How rude of you! To insult those who believe that there is more
to winning freedom than going to war. How is it that so many think
that it is the Liberal cynics who march the streets asking for
peace that are the enemy; in all those countries you speak of are
our troops not considered the enemy? It has been the American
foreign policy for far too long to decide it is our men and our
sacrifice that needs to be the Conflict Manager for the rest of the
How can you allow yourself to see through such a small spectrum?
Our politicians that are in office today are sending our armed
forces out to the aid of the world, and they are sending young men
and women to their deaths. It is absurd and irrational to accuse
all Americans of living sheltered lives; in fact it is insulting.
Look around your own country, your blessed country of freedom and
glory. The glorious lives you speak of do not make up the mass
Before you attack the dignity of the American, look around. Look
into our country’s cities and into their ghettos. Look into the
poverty rates and the number of children who go hungry in America
everyday. Look at the homeless who walk the desolate streets at
night. Look at the families where abuse is custom and lives are
threatened. We do not have to leave our country to see poverty,
abuse and wrongdoings. Warlords are our own criminals. Crime and
murder are commonplace among our citizens. Maybe it is this
government you signed your life to who needs to look first at the
crisis’ Americans deal with day to day as well.
Suspend your insults on your fellow Americans that you imply are
insensitive and weak. It is not the mass public of whom you are
attacking that is against foreign aid. The average person, and yes
Liberals too, care deeply about what is going on in countries
outside of our own. Maybe we are just sick of the solutions the
military decides on. What good is it to drop bombs and start wars?
How do you expect nationalism to come from that? It is not selfish
of the mothers who want their sons safe. It is not selfish of
Americans to want to better their own country first. It is not
selfish of the commoner, who lives a life of simplicity, to try and
make it for him or herself. It is rude of you to attack them.
Before you write your extreme opinion next time with the goal of
offending the average American, look around your own country. Count
the death tolls; count the numbers of lives lost everyday fighting
these things that are not controllable by our military alone. Stop
and think, refrain from the accusations and keep your rudeness in
