Questions On My Mind

1. The first question has been on my mind since the September 11th attacks, and that is--

Q- What are the aspects of United States culture, society, and foreign policy that are legitimate cause for re-action from non-American countries? I do not mean 'Is there justification for killing thousands of innocent people', my question has to do with the legitimacy of the re-action, not the action itself.. I hope this makes sense....

2. The second question has to do with a BBC news article that was posted late Saturday night, PST, concerning UK Major General Tim Cross, an officer that was a part of the post-war planning, who told the 'Sunday Mirror' that US policy was "fatally flawed" (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6974611.stm):

Q-- Doesn't the United States of America need the rest of the world to help understand itself from an outside perspective?

I recommend reading Confessions of an Economic Hitman by John Perkins. Has some ideas in regards to both questions, and is an interesting fairly easy read.

Random that I'm reading your blog...I just saw that you updated your profile on facebook and it said to read your blog, so I thought why not...

Sweet that this comment form is in Spanish...is it like that for everyone or does this website somehow recognize me and put it in Spanish?
