They don't hate us for our freedoms - they hate us because we are destroying, looting, and enslaving. The American citizenry has lost control of their government abdicating their power to greedy corporations whose insatiable thirst for ever more power knows no bounds.
Videos below for your consideration. As you watch I would encourage reflection on the motivation of corporate news, the reasons you are given for occupying foreign countries, the ever escalating debt you are responsible for paying, the war, the torture, the lives lost. Are these the desired actions of the government you put into office? Are these deeds consistent with the campaign rhetoric you were fed by the corporate media?
The first video may help you recollect some of the falsehoods you were told. One such disgrace involves the looting of the museums of Baghdad. First please pay attention to the rhetoric in the video at time marked:
Bush Invasion Announcement - see time=2:06 where he claims to respect their culture
but later....back at the ranch....the story is different....
Now please consider THIS PBS article where at first glance it seems like the FBI is on their way (what this has to do with their mission is beyond me) to help. But as one reads on :
"Looters ransacked and emptied multiple museums in Baghdad and other cities in the final days of the war, completely destroying some of the most ancient, rare, and valuable artifacts in the world.
At the National Archeological Museum in Baghdad, looters smashed and stole artifacts dating back to the days of ancient Mesopotamia, considered by historians to be "the cradle of civilization. ...Before the war, Gibson said he and several other scholars met with Pentagon officials to express concern that the museum could be in danger if a conflict erupted in Baghdad. He said U.S. officials assured them the National Museum and others would be protected."
One ancient artifact I've found fascinating from Iraq is the 2000-year-old "Baghdad Battery" shown in the picture. When I first saw this amazing find it made me realize more than any ancient artifact how little we know of the sophistication of our ancient ancestors. Here is a link where you can see more about this amazing clay pot. Here is a link to the Baghdad museum project.
Actions speak louder than words. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Both sayings apply to the corporate-controlled American government. Their actions during the invasion - send the Navy SEALs to guard the oil wells after Bush told the Iraqis not to burn them. Send nobody to guard the museums resulting in the ruination of the cultural heritage of the occupied country. Then later waste American taxpayers dollars sending the now international FBI to track down what wasn't destroyed.
No, they don't hate us for our freedoms. They hate us for our rogue government's actions which speak much louder than their words. Finally please watch the Economic hitman video for more on why our freedoms are the least reason others have to hate America.
...let's face it - these neo con-artists knew exactly what they were getting us into....."a quagmire"...
...but rest assured.....everything is under their control.....don't think for yourself.....
.....let them do your thinking for you. Don't think I'm partisan here....the self-proclaimed dictator now on the throne agrees with his fake-opposition predecessor.......
.....so - just don't worry your simple mind about these complex matters - they tell us. They've got everything - they hope - under their control.
