a7xbass, the only reason why most of the world hates the US isn't because of your economy or wealth or whatever. It is just because you can't stop yourself walking with your army in other people's country to dictate your views. And this is far from being always the right attitude. This isn't something new that came up with Bush Jr.

If more people had proper education in the US, election results would probably be very different. You have no idea how the world laugh at your presidential campaign. Problem is that it is a short and sad laugh, because consequences never fails to follow.

Again, don't get me wrong. The US is a great country, but most of its people did not receive a proper education that allow them to think by themself. When you can't think, someone else do it for you at his advantage. And this has happened for decades... US talking about freedom is just like Saddam talking about human rights, pathetic.

Freshmint, you have a point with Saudi Arabia, and I'm not denying the oil factor in the Iraq war, but if the U.S. is out fighting the wrong region, and the rest of the world hates us so much, why hasn't the U.S. been attacked in the last seven years. You can't say no one wants to, because as long as Islam is a major religion, there will be the radical conservative Muslim muhajideen that believe their jihad is to sacrifice themselves to punish the U.S., and face it, it is much easier to get away with terrorism in Iraq, even if most radicals are in Saudi Arabia. It's undisputed that Iraq has been one of the world's largest terrorist havens, and thats where the threat was coming from after 2001, so thats where we are going after them. And I'm not saying we are arresting terrorists, but if they are in hiding they can't hurt us and the second we leave Iraq will be the perfect place for radical groups. And they will not be coming after your country. It will be mine.

a7xbass, with all my respect what terrorist got jailed from invading Iraq? Afghanisthan fair enough, but Iraq... c'mon!

You invade their country, they defend themselves. Terrorist or resistant is just a matter of point of view, History will decide. But these guys aint threatening any American at home, they just want your troops out of theirs.

However, this is giving plenty of reasons (good or bad, I am not judging anything) to all extremist around to world to plot against the US.

So no, the war in Iraq doesnt make anybody safer in the US. And the bottom line is that most of intelligence around the world agree to say that the main nest of terrorist threats seats in Arabi Saudia. They are also the only one to be able to fund terrorist actions, do you really think Saddam had the money to raise Islamic armys? No, he couldn't even afford firepower for his own official army.

But hey, you need Saudi Arabia's oil don't you... And your governement perfectly knows that.

Freshmint, this is not a war on the Iraqi people. This is a war on terrorism, and the whole world thought Osama was a ghost from the past until the World Trade Center was burning. That's why both the Bush and Clinton administrations overlooked the evidence of the future attacks.

Iraq is the perfect terrorist haven. It had little to know border security, a weak national government, and geographically easy for radical terrorist organizations to hide in. There was little to know doubt these groups existed in Iraq. I agree with you that the U.S. federal government is hypocritical in saying they are there to defend the Iraqi people and give them a better life, but what we did was send the radical terrorists into hiding from us, which has prevented them from attacking us again. That is why as an an American I feel safer that we are in Iraq. America will be hated by some no matter what, we are over there making sure no one acts on that hatred.

a7xbass, Iraq did not assault the US for a simple reason - they just had no way to do it. Best proof is the ridiculously poor resistance your troops faced with Iraq's army, completely outnumbered, and with no proper equipment or vehicules (couple of tanks and 1 copter...).
There is not much wonder why Bush's governement entered country... And 'free' Iraq is certainly not on the top of the list, most of the veterans agree with that.

I don't mean Iraq was a 'free' country, but certainly the people can't justify your action. They did not ask for anything from the US or anybody else. And clearly, US troops are not ultimately there to help on rebuilding Iraq.

Again, US is policing the world. No wonder why those guys burn US flags... Not that I support that, in any way, but I can understand why. If you give someone all the reasons to hate you, you can't be surprised he end hating you.

Not to mention that the US created Bin Laden, just a ghost from the past...

I don't like to re-post on the same topic but, this one hit a nerve. There is a difference in "being ashamed of your country" and being ashamed of the actions of your nation. The first disrespects all that have died to allow you to continue on. You can disagree with your nation but, their is a way of doing so without condemning it.

"buttersrules" I will not share to much information about myself on the web but, I have been around the world in some very unpleasant places. I will say I wish you the peace in your life because you have earned it and you don't need anyone to say it.

But to be fair, I enjoyed the video, I thought it spoke to me, but 'the day we lose the will to fight is the day we give up our freedom' is crap.

freshmint, i respect your views because you have the right to those views. whether you think the Iraq war is the U.S. overstepping its boundaries or not is your opinion. i agree with you there is a great uneducated percentage of people in the U.S.

But to say we don't know about freedom is ignorance. We're not trying to spread our viewpoints to the Iraqi people. We are keeping ourselves safe. And tell me, just because people to not live in this country, does that mean that it is wrong to look after them and free them from tyranny. Vietnam was a war where we tried to force our views onto others. In Iraq we are spreading freedom, regardless of what the rest of the world thinks.

what im saying is we are in iraq and so the radical terrorists are in hiding. iraq has served as a terrorist haven for decades. if we leave, they will come out of hiding and their hatred of the U.S. will be itensified. If we pull out, they will come after us. Is Bush a good president? No. Has Bush made bad decisions? Yes. But since 9-11-01 Bushs primary mission has been to stop that from ever happening. Thats why, although I am not a Bush supporter, I have respect for the man.

if people werent so brainwashed by their religions then 9-11 probably wouldnt have happened. along with this war. but yea were in war and were probably not putting our all into it either. i say we step it up a few notches make iraq know that were not just dratin around and end this poo once and for all so our economys back to normal and were at peace again. but yea im probably missing a peice of the puzzle here so feel free to point it out to EVERYONE and make yourself feel like a big man.

Yeah very smart video, not to mention that Iraquis had water, electricity, and somehow education before your country decided to send troops there... F#cking ignorant.

What do you think you gonna make them free from, extremist and fanatics? D#mb #ss, they never been so powerful since your country doomed Iraq.

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying Iraq was perfect, or in anyway that I agree or support anything that Saddam Hussein's goverment has done there.

But for f#ck sake, how can you possibly say that it is better now than it was before? Most of them lost security on the basics: food, water, electricity, security. Their economy is on neutral, not to say reverse -can you tell us who is holding on relaunch oil exploitation by the way?

Your country messed up Iraq much more than it ever has been before. How can you call for freedom?

Whatever if you are a veteran from Iraq, you are a f#cking idiot.

Wow! you americans are totally screwed, i dont see how sending troops to iraq helps iraqi people aquire freedom by making sacrifices,(pretty damn unspecified sacrifices)

I'm surprised america isnt involved in the georgia vs russia conflict, y'know helping out, making sacrifices etc etc, not like they're going to iraq for ANY other reason, right?

Have you even been to Iraq, to make the comment that the coalition hasn't been forcefull enough? Cos I have. I was there the first time round. And the second. And I am ashamed. I am a veteren and I AM ashamed. Ashamed of the illegal war that my country has entered into at the instigation of the united states. Ashameed at the atrocities commited both in Iraq and Afghanistan in the name of "freedom". Ashamed at the blatant abuses of basic human rights in both countries, by soldiers of all the coalition nations. Ashamed that I joined the services to defend my country, only to have my oath of service corrupted for political and economic greed.
I am one ashamed ex-serviceman.
