Then too, just maybe, its time to admit that the U.S. does make some bad moves as does every other country & human being walking the face of the earth. Even if some refuse to accept that & truely believe that they are perfect. Most of that was directed at our attack on Iran for no reason(the second time) we as a nation are not the police force of the world, there is no world laws that I know of, just opinions as to what is fair & right & we can`t even do that in this country. There have been a lot of mistakes & probably will be more(every body is human) if you are too concieded to admit & learn from mistakes then there is no hope. A lot of mistakes are just greed driven & then if it worked the montary award far outways any thought of being unjust & everything in fine unless caught. As a country we just share this planet with others, keep our beliefs & share with others that ask instead of trying to force them on the world. As a country we are starting to colaspe from with-in, we have allowed ourselves to become dependent on others for our everyday needs & it didn`t happen overnight its taken decades but as long as you aren`t personally hurt nobody really cares. The country acted as one for a brief while after 9-11 but it didn`t last long, you don`t hardly see a made in China American flag flying anymore. Just MO.

Well put! I'm just as patriotic as the next guy but have never subscribed to the "My Country-Right Or Wrong" mindset. I think that a country, like a person should be mature & honest enough to admit mistakes, learn from them & move on. As an example, I would suggest that our use of torture (on prisoners after 911) has done much damage to our security for very little (if any) benefit. Even General Petraeus has come out against uit, as well as agreeing with the need to close Gitmo.
