Bush graduated high school with a C average...somehow he got into an ivy league school where again he graduated with a C average.... <--NY Times (I dont know if you consider that to be an anti-American source or not)
I know that grades dont mean everything but I think you should expect a little better from the leader of the most economicaly powerful country in the world.
As for pro-US stories, Im having trouble finding any, even from the American press (aside from the soccer team of course). Maybe you could help.
Bin Laden did win the war. His goal was to turn the world upside down and show the world the weakness of a superpower like the US. People are starting to see that the Palistinians are the ones who are suffering and when you see your wife and family killed by armed Israeli soldiers, your family house buldozed to make room for jewish immigrants from Argentina and its still illegal for you to have a gun to protect yourself you just might feel so low and so desperate that strapping a bomb on and blowing yourself and others up in revenge makes a lot of sense.
If Bush really wanted to end this war and the threat of terrorism in the US all he has to do is end all diplomatic relations with Israel, stop the sales of weapons to Israel and stop all public foreign aid to Israel. Even jewish people in the US and Europe are protesting against Israeli action and calling for a Palestinian homeland...So why on earth does the US continue to support Israel.........OIL. Israel represents stability in the middle east and gives the US a military base to protect oil interests in the middle east. If its not apparent to you yet that the Bush administration is connected with the Oil industry you should check out the US gov't website and see how many bills have been passed that benefit the oil industry (more then any other administration in the history of the US) with decreased polution restrictions, tax breaks (oil companies made record profits hense the need for tax breaks???), federal money for exploration and decreased regulations. This isnt comming from anti-US press this is comming from the US govt like the US energy bill S.517.
I am American and I'm not trying to be anti-american I'm just worried about my country and I dont feel that any private money from oil companies, telecom companies or any other business belongs in government. McCain and Feingold (sorry for my spelling) had it right on the finance reform bill but the public refused to listen and now we are paying for it. I fail to see how our current gov't is looking out for the interests of its people while it caters to lobyists and corporate financers.
But I guess disagreeing with the Bush adminstrations actions makes me anti-american.......strange I always thought that freedom of speech was one of the cornerstones of American life, but I guess even that has its restrictions when fighting the axis of evil.
KROC for pres. 2004!!!
