He killed way more than 3000 Americans. Not only that, he was proud of killing those people on September 11, publicly claiming worldwide his sole responsibility for it. We(America) are/ is responsible for “killing hundreds of thousands”? The killing you describe as what Americans are responsible for in the War of Terrorism is completely different from the killing of one man is proud of doing.
“God knows it did not cross our minds to attack the towers but after the situation became unbearable…I thought about it. As I watched the destroyed towers in Lebanon, it occurred to me punish…to destroy towers in America…”
- Osama Bin Laden
Wide-spread, systematic torture….2-3 trillions of dollars wasted..? America lacks humility? You question your safety?
Americans “kill” overseas so desk-jockeys like you can criticize them. Are we safer? Let’s see, you have the freedom to sit in your fucking seat and draw pictures online and parade over Tumblr about how righteous you are for taking a holy stand against America’s military/foreign actions. How safe are you? Seems pretty safe to me when you’re able thug the Internet in your comfy, little chair while millions of people in other countries fear for their lives every day because their leaders insist upon an Anti-American/Democratic agenda. Americans “kill” to preserve a little thing called Democracy. A little thing called a Republic. They kill so people like you can choose not appreciate it and get away with it.
In America you are free to vote. You are free to speak. You are free to voice your opinions. You have these freedoms and safety because of everything America has done up to now. Because of every little decision made by our forefathers up to the Obama administration, you are alive today, you are where you are now, and you have everything you have now.
If you don’t feel safe in America, try living in Iraq. Try living in North Korea. See how safe you feel. See who it is truly lacking in humility. If you don’t feel safe in America then get the fuck out, lol srsly.
War is not pretty. But it is a timeless fate humans are destined to deal with whether they like it or not. If war never existed, we’d all be speaking British English right now. If war never existed, you’d be typing in Soviet Russian on a government-monitored Tumblr, if there was even enough freedom for Tumblr. Yes, we “killed” one terrorist. He is not just one terrorist. He is a proud terrorist responsible for the murder of innocent Americans living their daily jobs. The Iraqis/Afghans that were “killed” by America were militants who were trying to kill your brother’s friend’s friend’s friend in the uniform.
But in all honesty, I respect your opinion. Killing is indeed bad at the end of the day. Hey, let’s try your idea. Let’s pull all of the troops out of Iraq. Let’s pull them out of Afghanistan, Libya, and wherever the military is deployed. It doesn’t matter if the terrorists gain the balls to nuke that school across my home, at least Iraqi and Afghan terrorists weren’t killed! So what…my best friend’s cousin’s girlfriend’s family was in that 2013 bombing of some US Landmark…so what??! At least terrorists weren’t “maimed”! At least we’ll have our humility and we’ll be “safe” to roam Tumblr!
“Killing” won’t immediately end terrorism, nor immediately create peace in the middle east, nor educate our children nor provent global environment collapse. But there is a big difference between killing and preserving America’s freedom. Killing Osama Bin Laden? You sure are an incredible dumbfuck with a ridiculous, major malfunction if you think that taking out Bin laden is nothing helpful. You don’t want to celebrate? You’d rather take the time to create some image/drawing full of text criticizing America for its “mistakes” than “celebrate?” Someone died on the morning of September 11, 2001 because of that man you proudly drew. Someone died that morning, (actually 3000 including firemen and 6000 injured), but for this statement’s purpose we’ll say that someone died that morning. Someone died that morning in a cubicle that someone like you should’ve been sitting in….not them.
American foreign policy is based on hypocritical values. But that’s the way uh huh uh huh I like it. If it wasn’t so hypocritical, we’d all be dead. Sure we stand for democracy, freedom, liberalism, and all that gobbly-gook stuff. But we HAVE to do it at the expense of other nations to protect ourselves.
We need Israel. We need Pakistan (barf). We need to protect Afghanistan, Libya, and Iraq. People, OPEN YOUR DAMN MINDS. We live in a world where not everyone can be trusted. At the expense of a few deaths here and there, it is done to protect YOUR lives. Every night, a soldier dies for YOUR freedom to speak. And how do you exercise it? By criticizing that soldier for killing.
On the morning of September 11, 2001, our nation was insulted. Our nation was attacked. Our nation needed to retaliate and protect our people. Our nation needed to preserve peace and protect our nation.
