US planned and plotted with Hussein then when the time was just right, the US changed their strategy to get oil cheap and needed friends to back each other for the next take over invasion. People are not stupid anymore and history shows what happened. But, let's not let it happen anymore! Our leaders say lies and they must not be believed. I believed two Bush's lies and now I feel that I was duped, no double duped.

I truly don't think USA are based of Americans but rather UK. Indian Native Americans are still suffering on the hands of so called Americans & they are still trying to end there race in the name of oil, metals, land, etc. on supposedly Democracy. Last year it was discovered mass graves of Native children taken from there families. Can you truly say these are Americans.... America itself was invaded & they really never left... America's original people where only Indian Natives & Aboriginal. How can you discover land when that land was already populated... they exterminated most of them (whole America)

nope just the ones who do stand up get prosecuted, killed, threatened, beaten to submission are the ones who dare to take a stand against the upcoming orwellian government. Expose the truth and either get beaten and prosecuted like manning, chased like snowden, or killed like hastings. nope! no one like that in the US

Successive US governments are the worst in the world! They are supposed to be most educated, refined & upstanding, but even the very finest among them, have not had the courage & good old fashioned guts, to take back their country from the evil besetting their WH. The whole world will come to despise the US as a country of lameducks, able to kill other nations with their WMD, as cunning framers & liars, who spy on the world & smilingly spill the blood & gas others but cannot spill a drop to save itself from the designer suit terrorists ruling their United Stasi of America!

Still wondering why US is the most hated country? Where there's oil, there goes US meddling and destroying. All for what? Money!

don't travel abroad


Most Americans are on food stamps, the only way they can travel abroad is to join the army.

But just remember. Those in power will ALWAYS try to keep that power. By any means necessary. regardless of weather the people want it or not, they will be prosecuted, tortured, persuaded, lied to, killed, in order to stay on top. This is not just about the US, it is everywhere, EVERYWHERE! To wake up to reality is a huge slap in the face. then going through the real history ( not your high school books) hits the other side.
