The savage Americans

with 3 comments

Did you know that only 46% of Americans believe that intentional attacks on civilians are never justified? Glenn Greenwald has the story. FWIW, 80% of Iranians believe that attacks on civilians are never justified. Indeed, the American distaste for attacks on civilians is much less than in any of the Muslim countries polled.

  1. It’s probably an artifact of our relative inexperience with such things here at home, 9/11 notwithstanding. Muslim countries wrestle with these issues in a much more up-close way.

  2. Or its an outright fabrication.
    Really, Michael, I guess it’s OK to hate America, but to grow fat on her excess while doing it is shameful.
    You (and those you support) have yet to offer ANY true options to the American people. You offer links to Liberal papers and blogs, your elected officials are campaigning against a lame-duck President. In the words of H. Dean: “Shut up and Move On”.

  3. Any evidence that it’s a fabrication? No? I thought not.

    I suppose if you must hate America, you must, but why bring it up to us? Or is it not America you hate, but any facts that disturb your worldview?

    The liberal party has offered much, but since you operate in a fact-free zone, I expect you don’t realize that. This past week, for example, the minimum wage was raised for the first time in a decade—the GOP stoutly resisted that. The Democrats also offered a supplemental appropriations bill with timelines to get the US out of Iraq, something that around two-thirds of Americans want. The lame-duck President showed how little he supports the troops by vetoing the bill. In the presidential campaign, some candidates are offering national healthcare reform. The Democrats passed an ethics reform bill that restricts the activities of the lobbyists who grew fat with the GOP (and fattened quite a few GOP members of Congress, you’ll recall). The Democrats in Congress are also working to re-establish the rule of law.

    Really, you have no idea of what’s happening, do you?
