I am going to play devils advocate here and say how come its perfectly acceptable to Americans for America to invade/terrorize/back terrorist regime in a foreign nation but when they do it to us we are incensed and disgusted. maybe if we quit doing it to other people they would stop doing it to us. Just a thought ya know... think of how great this world would ben today if America had not have in some way backed Saddam, Osama, Pinochet and so on.......

it's easy to look back and say we shouldn't have done this or that. But keeping our hands out of everything, while it is what the world claims they want, isn't good. Should we have stayed out of the first gulf war? Should we have stayed out of WWII?

If America has have cared about the all the lives the Nazi's were taking they would have intervened earlier and helped stop it quicker but no they chose to ignore the atrocities for almost 5 years, as for the first gulf war we should have left them to fight it out amongst themselves as they have been doing for thousands of years, we just had to interfere because of oil greed. We need to forget the rest of the world exists and focus on America and our own issues. Then once thats done, focus on helping our neighbors to the north and south showing them we are decent folk, then with their help spread it further and further. Become what the world once loved and admired not what they see as a crumbling cesspool of ignorance and threats.

It's all a matter of perspective. Unfortunately the majority of humans see a "black and white, good and evil" world. The reality however remains that the world is actually a very grey place.

There's an old saying that goes something like this. One man's terrorist is another man's hero.

Not to go off-topic, but the world was pretty much oblivious to what was happening to the Jews until the final few years of the war.

Also, as for the Gulf War, if we had stayed out then Hussein would have owned the Middle East. He rolled thru Kuwait in what, 1/2 a day? Saudi Arabia, which has no military, was next. The only countries in the ME that had the power to fight him was Iran, Israel and Egypt (does Egypt count as the ME?), if he was smart enough to avoid them then he would have been mostly unchallenged. In spite of the fact that most of the world hates us for it, the Gulf War protected the world's oil supply, not just the US oil supply.
