  • Another side of the American viewpoint...

    Some of the denizens of this forum who hie from Europe and don't have
    first-hand experience with the U.S. occasionally express incomprehension
    and amazement at the political actions of the U.S. government, and
    sound perplexed about the degree of complicity of the populace at large
    in that government's actions. They might find this little essay in irony
    and sarcasm interesting and (perhaps) illuminating.

    The author is both insightful and entertaining. He doesn't like to pull his
    punches, either. His remarks have been known to infuriate some
    American readers, as one of the letters he quotes in the text should
    make abundantly clear.

    Take this as a counterpoint view, to help understand the divided nature
    of the American public on a lot of the stuff that's happened.

    Interesting, amusing, and scary... Morality as a cover for hate - how true. The left in Britain thrives on illusions as well (+nostalgia). :(

          You may want to ask Mamdouh Habib and other incarcerants at Guantanamo Bay if they have been tortured.

          Of course Habib was originally tortured in Egypt, so I guess if it's outsourced....

          Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.
