From the book that GGGGGG-men sent me, if these guys go against the natural order (that "we" want) it will not end well for them.
    Do keep in mind that the US has long supported the corrupt dictatorship these people are rebelling against. Our realpolitik approach to countries like Tunisia and Saudi Arabia is one of the things that makes many Middle Easterners laugh aloud when they hear us cite our support of democracy and open government as reasons for invading their neighbors.
    Young black males in recent years were at a far greater risk of being shot dead by police than their white counterparts 21 times greater i, according to a ProPublica analysis of federally collected data on fatal police shootings.

    But racism is dead. Right?

    I know, as i said i have been reading a book that GGGGG-men sent me. We have a long history of propping up non-Democratically elected leaders by replacing the Democratically elected leaders (which we labeled as "socialist").

    Saudi Arabia is actually a great example, the book details our involvement in the Saudi government.

    Our relationship with saudi arabia is just insane. I know a lot of people don't take him seriously and I don;t agree with everything he says, but some things he has a point on is michael more in his movie Fahrenheit 9/11. Did you know that saudi embassy is the only embassy in the united states actually protected by our own secret service? they have a lot of influence in this country and I can't remember the exact percentage, but saudi royal family owns like 2-5 percent of this country. it's really an eye opener when you learn about the influence they have in this country.

    I believe in Why We Fight, or another documentary did a nice job of compiling clips that show every, single President in the last 60 years going TV and telling the American people that we're going to war "for peace", "freedom" or to "spread democracy"; every, single one. It's really some 1984 type **** when you're going to war yet saying your desire is for peace.

    But yes it's a shame more of the American people don't know our history of overthrowing and meddling in a long list of countries(democratically-elected or not)

    agreed..... it's astonishing on how much we have tried to impose on other countries and either over threw or tried to over throw a leader and put our own guy in there.
