Right, before I begin what I want to say, I would like to say I have no problems with Americans at all and if you are offended by what I am about to say, then I apologize.
I've been thinking a lot about 9/11 and the ensuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan recently, and have realised a small thing.
The Americans started the war because of 9/11. That is a well known fact. But how do they deserve to fight a war when the country itself is based on slaughter?
Let me give a few facts:
-The colonists who discovered America started a war with the Native Americans, and nearly wiped them out, along with the buffalo.
-They then grew unhappy with British rule, and started a war, and won.
-I believe it was peaceful for a while before they found the Africans and brought them back as slaves.
-They then proceeded to abolish slavery in the northern states; the southern states didn't like this.
-Cue civil war 2.
-Unhappy with that, they decided to join in with World War One.
-They then (although it was warranted) killed hundreds of thousands of people with nuclear bombs.
-Still not happy, they proceeded to invade Vietnam.
-They then decided to get angry with Russia and begin the Cold War.
After their scorechart of death, they had the balls to whine about 9/11?
9/11 was a horrific event, which should never have happened. But that does not give an excuse to go invade two countries, kill innocents, and try Westernize the countries.
Forgive me if I don't have all the facts, I probably don't, and feel free to correct me, as this is a debate, and I have only put this together through my own observations.
Please don't fill the thread with crap like "But Britain/France/Russia/insertothercountryhere is also based on war" or anything accusing me of racism etc. as I already know that most countries are based on war, and I am not racist.
But the question is, after that entire sheet of death, why invade the Middle East just because two towers were destroyed by a few men with turbans on their heads?
