Mamduh from Egypt - I Support You, America

Dear America,

Some people misunderstood my last letter and thought I meant to attack America, and that was not the case.

In fact, I'm one of the few pro-US and pro-Israel people here, and I tend to support the US in its wars.

Because, I mean, without the US going to Iraq, those who are now complaining and attacking the US would still be attacking it anyway, but then it would have been for the reason that the US did NOT help them.

Iraq is now a democratic country, they have cellphones, satellite channels, newspapers, political parties, political debates, political differences, and even political fights. But would they have ever dreamed of any of that if it wasn't for America?

Same thing for Afghanistan. They wouldn't have even been able to dream about being a democracy, or having even if just a little bit of religious freedom, and being in contact with the world around them. Women would still be made to cover up from head to toe.

Some people in here like to treat America as if it's their mother or something (maybe because it's a super-power). They just like to keep complaining under all circumstances, and America is expected to always make them feel better.

Carmen from New Zealand on Democracy

Dear America,

Thank you for this opportunity to "voice my thoughts" as a non-American on this site....

I've become brave enough now to venture over to the American Perspectives window and check out letters submitted there....wow, I guess my initial reaction to some views were, how shall we say unlady-like ( haha..)....then as I took the time to mull over some comments I relised as much as we identify as being either American, New Zealander, Australian, Iranian, British, somehow that quiet (and sometimes loud) Patriotic streak overshadows that for the main part we are all like sheep subtley controlled by a much stronger body called "Government".....I don't always understand my own countries Political System and much less the U.S.A's.....my question is "Does Anybody'?...really.......My best friend happens to be an American or should I say A citizen of the U.S.A...(see I'm learning to be Politically correct)...hehe....and he has some very strong Political views and opinions etc...I suppose to remain positive after some discussions my perspective has broadened somewhat, not because of enlightenment but more from the point of view of just how
unstable Governments are...and that emotionally/mentally it is not wise to swallow information just because .......we heard it on C.N.N.....or "they said this".....or my daddy believed that...or our forefathers believed this...or in my case pilgrims fought for this n that.....yes to all those wonderful heroes who sacrificed much for my freedom....I will always strive to educate my sons intellectually and spiritually ,that is how I can be accountable and honor men and women who sacrificed for me.... It's not the fact that men and women disagree( tween cultures particularly), that bothers me its the often angry responses ,ya know the attitude "if you dont agree with me ya can't be on my side, therefore you're an enemy, so I must shut you down, or screw you up......isnt that how power games first begin then develop nationally????.....now my American friend says...I don't understand...I gotta be American to understand....next he will be telling me
I gotta be a man too???....ok I wont go there..hahaha...Take Care All.......

P.S...Appreciate the reply comments to a previous post, made me smile.....

Ottavio from Australia

Dear America,

A stated on my weblog, I believe America plays a critical role on the world stage. For all intensive purposes, current "World Order" is stable and predictable in-part due, to the economic, technological, military and diplomatic superpower we know as the The United States. Whether acknowledged or not it is in the world's interest that the U.S. continues to exact its present worldly economic, political, cultural and military influence. An influence that extends to leadership in scientific and technological research and the production of innovative technology based products and services. Our democratic way of life, our economies and our national security, are irrevocably tied to a secure world order - an order, to which the present day United States is at the heart, as the pre-eminent driver of internationalism. Compare this, to the global instability that existed in the first 20 years of the past century and its link to the two world wars that followed.

My blog, although new, shall hopefully serve as a platform of advocacy for the continuation of American dominance because as stated before me, America must remain strong.

Just briefly, I also wish to add that I am proud of my Federal Governments unwavering support for America's war on terrorism.

T.A.I.M. S.O.D.S. from South Africa - Take a Stand, Realize Your Freedom!

Dear America,

Firstly I would like everyone to know that I am most certainly not anti-America in anyway. However what we are currently seeing is exactly what happened in my own country of South Africa for 50 years. We are dealing with right wing dictators under the guise of democracy. It is the work of few that are casting a dark shadow over a land of so many. Mr. Bush the most powerful man in the world and his back up crew seem to have a hidden agenda. I say this due to the fact that the cracks in the mighty America are starting to show...big time. Popularity of the country and how the world(ordinary people), perceive America has declined massively. Now due to PIRACY of DVDs and CDs coming from China, America wants to tighten trade with them...because why? I am sure the mighty rising economic empire of China does not endorse illegal trade over its borders on purpose. Is the Bush administration picking a fight with a sleeping giant? My point is this...GOVERNED BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE...is that not the backbone of democracy? It is obvious to me that national pride is still at a all time high and it is what Bush feeds on. No matter what blunder(evil plot) he comes up with, Americans stand firm in the love for their country. Admirable but dangerous...weed out the problem, the very cancer that surely will destroy democracy! Corruption is one thing but blatant disregard for the peoples rights to freedom is a very different one. One that should not be tolerated...why are young boys still being blown up along side roads in Iraq. I am sure these boys would rather be sipping a Millers lite and puffing a Malboro with his/her partner AT HOME!! Our sympathy goes to the American people, it took us 50 years to reach democracy. America always had it but in 50 years it seems you have finally reached your national socialistic state. South Africa and America have merely traded places....so I urge the people of America to take a stand as they did against apartheid! Fight the wrongs happening in your very own country, the world sees it surely you can too. For the most part we are positive that the bright shining torch bearer of democracy will return to us. Question is will this happen before that dictator does anything everyones going to regret?
