No we in Canada on a national level would have reacted the same way. Evidenced by the fact that our PM was the first world leader to condemn the events in Boston. Which I do as well. But the question remains, which of the same leaders condemn the bombings in Iraq. It is easy to say it happens all the time...it shouldn't, and people there should know we don't tolerate it, and support them as well. Especially when we are trying to help them become of nation of freedom and equality.
I'm pretty sure every world leader condemns every bombing in Iraq. I get that you have an issue that it isn't front page news all the time, but that's a consumer/media issue & not a product of us being a "3rd world" country.
If you felt offended by me and what I said, then perhaps it struck the right chord. Your country is looking 3rd world, and not just in the case of shootings and bombs, your countries education is in decline, its health system is broken, its economy is in shambles, it has an irreversible amount of debt. Your country is broken, and things like this happen to broken places.
My country has been arguably the toughest, most resilient, & most fiercely independent ever since Patriots battled at Lexington & Concord over 200 years ago, yesterday. If our country was broken more people would have run from the blasts rather than towards them, yesterday. While certainly not perfect, our education system trained many, many people on how to protect & save lives that wouldn't have been saved otherwise yesterday - and if it happened anywhere else I can guarantee the loss of life would have been worse. The victims were treated at some of the best hospitals in the world where some of the best doctors & nurses in the world trained at the local schools that are also some of the best in the world. This little city has more higher education, more world class hospitals, & more highly trained Doctors than most countries. Our economy is improving & any and all dollars needed to deal with the aftermath of this tragedy are being allocated & distributed.
Ya, we've got a lot of debt, but despite Ron Paul's opinion we're actively paying it down. The plans Obama set in his first term should get us $2.5 trillion payed off, more than halfway to his 10 year goal of $4 trillion.
Your country is broken, and things like this happen to broken places.
You really are trying to be a cunt
, aren't you? If our country was broken, the red cross wouldn't of had to stop blood donations yesterday due to having too much.
This is the hypocritical west I talk of...we say its routine, happens all the time..a non-story. In iraq normal folks, like you and I who just trying to live life, take care of their kids and family, they get hurt just as much by the events of evil intentions. We want them to be friends with us, we want to show them that we are with them, if they are with us.
But I see no condemnations of bombings in Iraq, just more of the same "it happens all the time" sh*t.
? Sure, western coutnries tend to put western news first, just as I'm sure Canadian news puts Candian news first & Iraqi news puts Iraqi news first.
This is a consumer/media issue, not a product of a broken country.
When the world stops comforting America for its acts of evil intentions, maybe you will see my point. Maybe not. I don't care if you understand either way to be honest.
Oh this is cute. When has the world EVER "comforted" American when we've @#%^ed
up? Just because we fuck
up doesn't mean we have evil intentions; it just means we're human.
I may be a whacko conspiracist, but at least I am not a naive rationalist.
Oh, you're certainly whacko-ly naive when it comes to your understanding America & my city in particular. Edited, Apr 16th 2013 11:12am by Omegavegeta
