Is it important to discuss genocide?Submitted by 1988vote on Tue, 10/22/2013 - 13:11
No links here; I have none.
How can *we* discuss genocide without attacking any particular country and still be self-evaluating as Americans?
Dr. Paul said that the CIA was complicit; he blames/blamed the CIA for a lot of the trouble in the world--
He said he hoped that if he were president he could get rid of the organization--
*we* have former CIA agents who were fairly high level who mention that the U.S./CIA has been in countries all over the world fomenting and creating revolutions and wrecking havoc and . . .
Can it be agreed that all cultures and all nations are implicit but that *we*, as Americans, have a responsibility to clean up *our own* backyard?
Finding the truth is important.
Yes, it's difficult when so few true journalists even exist anymore--
but is this important?
There was a discussion about a country that is not supposed to be mentioned and the right for a nation to limit who comes across its borders--
I agree that that is a problem, but in every case, as *I* see it, where illegal immigration is a problem, U.S. foreign policy seems to be behind it--
As an American, even if I have very little power, shouldn't I be aware of what *my* tax dollars are doing?
Shouldn't we all?
Sorry to use "should", but I really am asking an honest question.
By the way, this can be discussed without talking about the nation that shall not be mentioned--
here is a classic example:
France is having to deal with middle eastern refugees, which were created by U.S. interventions (directly or indirectly)--
but France is not "innocent" in terms of meddling around the world either--
how/where/when do *we* say, "enough!"--
here is another:
How many of *us* are naive enough not to believe (based upon the escapades of the Clintons, etc.) that the U.S. has not supported chaos in Mexico?
Why the randomness of rounding people up and deporting them?
I am undecided on immigration, because I don't think a country that has lost its integrity (from the beginning) as much as the U.S.--
can make wise decisions about who should stay and who should go--
How can this be discussed so that the revolution can involve not only bringing troops home (progress is being made in waking up many military members)--
but stopping the international thuggery of the CIA?
Thank you if you read this; thank you even more if you respond--
