War Protestation Standards by avary War Protestation Standards by avary
Debate time! A lot of people [where] protesting an hypothetical US war against Iraq and maybe rightly so. (Time will tell, remember Chamberlain's 1938 "Peace in our times" declaration?).

But since all wars are bad, evil, and immoral I'm still waiting for people to protest the french invasion of Ivory Coast (why are they invading this small country anyway? Is it to gain a monopoly on cocoa, or to exact revenge for their World Cup defeat? Beats me.).

I think I have an explanation and I don't like it. Maybe people will show me that I'm wrong and start protesting France. And they will also remember to protest Russia, China, Zimbabwe and Burundi while they're at it.

Ma participation à un projet du groupe ~francophones Et voilà!

Beacuse no one gives a crap about France and Ivory Coast, and it's easier to protest against a nation that's big

Invasion of Ivory Coast? France had respect its protection agreement signed with the Ivory Coast, in case of foreign attack and / or rebels. The Ivory Coast has not been invaded by French army.

Let's see here for a moment, shall we? Be it England, Spain, France, or Portugal, Europeans have always taken great pride in their colonial past even if all the colonies did was kill the locals through direct attack or disease. There was one documentary made by a European that was sharply critical of colonialism but the person who produced it got chewed up pretty bad by pro-empire critics.
But hey, what's an empire without torture and misery for the locals? What's a government without lies and corporate ties?
It's like an army without solders. It's like a gun with no ammo. . . It's like a world without empires.

IM just throwin this one out there... but is it possible, that people just see America as sort of a scape goat, for lack of a better word. Like whenever something is wrong with an area on Earth one way or another someone tries to blame it on America.... Than when we dont do anything about it they complain that we are being slefish and lazy. So we go and do something about it and all of a sudden we are war criminals. Theres really no pleasing anyone anymore. It kinda seems like they all blame us because maybe way deep in the back of their minds theyre a bit jelouse of everything we have going for us here in the awesome USA. God Bless us I still say. Ill always support my country.
