    The America bashing is disturbing. It appears there is a standard of perfection placed upon this country that doesn’t apply elsewhere.
    Sad. The bet and last hope for liberty is looked upon as fundamentally evil, while tyrants and dictators are championed.

    You literally disgust me! You and all you Liberal extremists that blame America for Islamic terrorism such as 9/11 or the latest attack on Boston! The countries you mentioned, and more, have not attacked us because of American actions on them. They do so because their radical Islam instructs them to kill ANYONE that is not an Muslim. An “infidel”. That’s why they do not discriminate who they blow to pieces, whether it be an 8 year old boy or civilians. It doesn’t matter to them!!! If you want to put blame on yourself for THEIR actions, leave ME and AMERICA out of it! And get OUT! Your cowardice and others like you is what’s making America weak and that’s what’s emboldening them more for more attacks. Cause instead of blaming them and stopping them, you’ll just point the blame at yourself.

    “Either perpetrated by the US, our allies (NATO) or in retaliation for what the US has done to others.”


    I have never condoned war. It’s wrong morally and I personally believe gives an excuse to the terrorists of the world to pursue their deadly agenda. If we are attacked in some fashion, that may justify striking back, but not this eternal campaign we have in the middle east to “save them for democracy.” Right or wrong, our military actions are initiated under the guise that we are at war with these people. I don’t agree with that and have regularly expressed my sentiments to my government.


    I cannot help but feel that you are somehow excusing this attack as some twisted form of evil “quid pro quo.” You equate the Boston attack with actions in the middle east, as if we set up regular terrorist activities with IED’s. You say we don’t know the “why” of the attack. You think this is some bored college student out to get his kicks killing and maiming people? One of these killers sat his backpack down next to two children. I hope I am completely misinterpreting your remarks, because I would hate to think that you could be so cold and heartless.

    “The US does engage in torture.”


    Yes they did, and we are cream puffs compared to our adversaries. It was “rationalized” at the time as being necessary for our national security. So was the patriot act. So was the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. So was Gitmo. I seem to notice that our current administration is continuing and/or expanding the above. Your “torture” report is a political statement that will make people feel vindicated in their hatred of Bush and Cheney and will do nothing to remedy the problem. What we need to do is step down our military actions and occupation around the world and rebuild our country.

    Well there’s your problem. We are SUPPOSED to be held to a higher standard! Looking around the world and saying “well, we’re better than North Korea” just doesn’t cut it.

    It’s the conservatives like you (not real conservatives) that hate America and everything it stands for. Look in the mirror.

    @PianoGuy24

    You want to turn this country into a tinhorn dictatorship that uses torture at every turn, but WE’RE the ones who hate America. You’re sick.

    @Mark

    Where do you get the idea I’m for a dictatorship? I don’t like torture, BUT if a KNOWN terrorist has information that we could use to stop a terrorist attack and save countless lives if otherwise they wouldn’t talk, then so be it. Why do you care more for the terrorist’s state MORE than saving innocent lives? IM the sick one? Get your priorities straight!!!

    “It appears there is a standard of perfection placed upon this country that doesn’t apply elsewhere.”

    This made me think. One of the common accusations from conservatives is that liberals don’t believe in “American Exceptionalism”. Seems like we should hold ourselves to a higher standard if we want to pretend the U.S.A. is a special place.

    So, are we exceptional? Martin Richard sure was.

    “And the US hasn’t started anything. Afganistan protected al-qaeda, which attacked us on 9/11. Iraq invaded Kuiat and then wouldn’t keep the peace treaty they signed. Go learn some history.”

    It’s incredibly naive to think the U.S. wasn’t trying to force it’s will in the region before 1991. We are looked at as the latest in a long succession of outsiders meddling in the region.

    The Boston police, the FBI, and the President all did a fantastic job in getting to where we are after this attack, but, and I know this isn’t a popular fact, but …the terrorists won. An entire city cowered in their homes behind closed doors and drapes for a whole day. THAT is terror. And as proud as we are of the forces that brought about the capture/death of the terrorists, they’ve once again changed the way we will live our lives forever. And all the shouts of ‘USA’ won’t change that.

    @narrowminded

    If the standard for the US is not higher than “elsewhere”, then we are not and have no basis for our claim and pride of “exceptionalism” … Conservative code for “WE are ALWAYS Right !” If we no longer hold our Government and ourselves to the “Higher Standard”, then we are NOT “…the be(s)t and last for liberty” we once were. When those who deride our Nation’s morality and principles, and Government, promote the dehumanizing of any, even enemies, within or outside our society, and the negation of their innate, human (god-given ?) rights, they abdicate ANY moral position of authority – social, governmental or religious. “He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach himself.” ~ Thomas Paine

    Excellent point!

    It amazes me that there are people who believe that the only way one can prove oneself better than one’s adversary is to mimic their actions and escalate the violence.
    .
    The U.S. and Allies were the ones setting the standard after WWII by trying and executing war criminals. Some of those criminals are still being pursued!
    .
    Today, our government utilizes the same practices of the Axis powers that were condemned back then.
    .
    What makes these once-condemned practices now acceptable to some in our society?
