If we, as a nation, will not accept what we are doing to others, we are wrong! Instead of claiming the whole world “wrongfully” hates us, we might be better off to ask them why? Does anyone really believe we have no wrongs in what we have done to other countries? Today and for years and years our government has manipulated, bribed and bullied other countries into accepting our demands and beliefs.
Sadly, Mexico and her citizens are a prime example of the truth above while being pawns in our known failure called the “War on Drugs.” They have been bullied, manipulated and paid to follow our failed policy, and over 50,000 of their citizens have paid for it with their lives.
As we openly and arrogantly violate other countries and their people, ask yourself this question: Would we accept Mexico sending drones over our borders and killing innocent men, women and children while claiming it was “their right” due to the War on Drugs? We would not accept it from any country, for any reason, yet we demand and expect the rest of the world to shut up and watch as we violate their countries and their citizens.
Who or what gives us the right to force and manipulate our beliefs on all others? Who or what power gives us the right to force our beliefs as to what is wrong or right on those outside our country? How is it wrong for others to claim the same rights we have wrongfully taken?
Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh was a Baptist, and we don’t hold all Baptists responsible for his disgusting deeds, do we? Holding a country or a faith responsible for the ignorance and hate of a minority is wrong, period! Those who want to harm us, we should help them meet their God, but not in a way that makes us just as wrong.
That being said, if we took just 10 percent of what we give the world every year, every man, woman and child could have free health care here at home. If we can take care of the world, we can surely take care of our own first, for a change!
