|I have posted this messsage in several other discussion boards.
I am completely fed up with hypocritical, narrow-minded or just plainly naive American nationalists who keep accusing other countries of this or that, without having the slightest intellectual honesty to recognize the crimes of their country.
In order to restrain your unfettered jingoism (I am talking to the above-mentioned persons, not about every American here), I am organizing a survey consisting of only one question, it will take you little time. Here it is:
IN YOUR OPINION, WHICH COUNTRIES HAVE COMMITTED MORE CRIMES THAN THE USA DURING THE PERIOD FROM WWII (included) TO THE PRESENT?
This is a clear question demanding a clear answer. Please do not beat about the bush, for example by writing back to me asking: What is your definition of "crime"? That is where this survey is interesting: everyone answers according to their own conception of what a "crime" is. Just give me the list (you need not explain your choices, we will discuss them once I have all the answers, but you can if you will).
Anyone can answer, even non-Americans (but their answers will be treated separately). I do not intend to have a "representative sample" of American public opinion, just the opinions of the American visitors here.
Of course, all the nationalists (they will recognize themselves) are expected to answer. A refusal from them to participate would not only show their cowardice, but also their blatant hypocrisy and their obvious lack of honesty, together with a blatant incapacity to see facts in the face (but I am already curious to see what flimsy excuses they will find to elude that quite embarrassing question).
I am looking forward to receiving your answers.
