There are a myriad of ways people get the shaft in every day activities, because some asshole decided we weren't safe enough and needed to be restricted for our own protection, instead of turning the middle east into a sheet of glass and solving the actual problem of a culture rooted in nazi fascism and a religion founded by a pedophile teaching murder and enslavement of anyone that wont join it.
Err... are you really advocating genocide as a solution?! And in the same sentence saying THEY are nazi fascists as a justification?!
I'm not even going to discuss that.
But I will say this (and keep in mind I am not politically correct, in fact, I think too much PC is one of the evils of this world - virtue is, always is, in the middle, never in the extremes):
While everyone - and I mean everyone without exception - is capable of aggression and murder under the right circumstances, some cultures are way more aggressive than others. Unlike what the advocates of political correctness and multi-culturalism want to make you believe, we are NOT all the same.
Some cultures are ready to live and thrive in Democracy. Some are not. Some are able to live in peace. Others seem to constantly seek strife and conflict.
Everywhere there is a tribal mentality (look at nearly all African countries, the Gypsies and most of the Middle East) Democracy will not stand. It's a 'everyone for himself' mentality, a 'us against them', 'them' being anyone that isn't 'me'. In countries and regions like those, a King's or Despot's tyranny is better than Democracy. Why? Because, bad as it is, it is still better than the alternative: total chaos, everyone fighting for power - not for the people, but for themselves. And it is the people and the poor who suffer and die because of this.
Democracy cannot be imposed. It must come from within.
Just look at what happened to Iraq after being invaded by the US. The death toll from 10 years of the “War on Terror” since the 9/11 attacks is at least 1.3 million, and could be as high as 2 million. Many more than if Saddam had stayed in power. Even the direct Iraq/Iran conflict, which lasted 8 years, was not as deadly: 'only' 160,000 to 240,000 causalities on the side of Iraq.
In the movie Lawrence of Arabia, a film loosely based on the life of T.E. Lawrence, Lawrence says to Sherif Ali: 'So long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people, a silly people - greedy, barbarous, and cruel, as you are.'
And so they are. But lets not forget that they would still be too busy bickering among themselves to even remember we exist if it weren't for our need of oil, of which they have plenty. And it has been our policies to control that oil that, directly or indirectly, have caused the present situation.
So do not think for a moment that we are totally blameless. We aren't.
