The World Looks Up To America With Good Reason
Startingwith this thanks from an Australian blogger...
2005-06-09Thanks America Where do I start?
I've wanted to say this for a long time. It is unbelievable that America gets badmouthed all the time. America has helped the cause of freedom more than anyone else. First of all I'd like to thank America for saving Australia's butt at the Battle of the Coral Sea in WWII. This prevented the Japanese from landing here, and bringing with them the concept of "comfort women". I think Australia's nature is such that we would have sacrificed 90% of our population rather than hand over any woman. America's intervention meant that we were never required to make that terrible choice. Thanks America!
Then of course there's the fact that you saved Europe's butt, not once but 3 times - WWI, WWII and the Cold War. I don't know why we don't hear more thanks from Europe for this. But in the absence of thanks from ungrateful recipients of American largesse, let me say it instead - thanks America!
And then there's all the foreign aid you give. And all the technology you provide. And all the knowledge that is provided for free. And the Mars rover images, also provided for free. And the GPS system also provided for free. And why don't the third world countries thank you for all the stuff they receive from America? I don't know. But let me thank you instead. Thanks America!
And something that is far more important than foreign aid is the security umbrella you provide, that the entire free world lives under. If there was any justice in the world, the rest of the free world would provide money to fund the American military, and hand over a cheque with a BIG SMILE. Instead, what do we see? Protests in places like South Korea. Unbelievable. How you can put up with the South Koreans is beyond me. The fact that you do put up with them, with a smile, exemplifies the inner beauty of the American soul. Thanks America!
And then there's the fact that after defeating an enemy, instead of rubbing his nose in the dirt, you instead show great magnimity and help him to his feet, immediately, ala Germany and Japan. You show that the best way to defeat an enemy is to turn him into a friend. You teach that we should judge people by their current behaviour, not past bad behaviour. If only the rest of the world could learn from America. But instead most of the rest of the world maintains grudges for centuries, transferring guilt to perfectly innocent people, and pretending to inherit suffering and permanent victimhood. If only people would adopt the American way, the world would be so much better. What can I say? Nothing. I am humbled in the face of American largesse. Thanks America!
And then there's the glorious imperial measurement system that you still cling to, in honour of the glorious King George, long after the rest of the world, including Australia, has metricized, which even caused one of the Mars probes to be smashed to smithereens. Hmmmmm. Hmmmmm. Ok. Hmmmmm. Let's move on folks, nothing to see here.
And then there's the fact that you give money to others in the event of a natural disaster, such as the Tsuanami, regardless of race or religion, yet no-one ever gives you a dime when you have a natural disaster. Both the government and the people individually have unmatched generosity. And even rich people in America tend to give their money to charities instead of passing it on to their kids, like people in most other countries. Thanks America!
And then there's the fact that after 9/11, instead of nuking the entire Middle East in response, you instead freed 52 million people from state-slavery/holocaust/institutionalized rape, and then poured BILLIONS into those countries, on top of the BILLIONS that the war cost itself, plus the sacrifice of your countrymen. All while everyone is accusing you of stealing oil. I don't know why these ingrates don't thank you for all you have done. Maybe it's because they're ingrates? Maybe with education their children will thank you. Just like European children thank you. Hmmmm. Hmmmm. Nevermind about that. Let me thank you instead. Thanks America!
From across the globe, countries are grateful to America...
Grand Duke Jean, the constitutional monarch of Luxembourg since 1964, will make his first official visit to this country Nov. 11- 19 (1984).
Luxembourg's Ambassador to the United States, Paul Peters, said 1984 was chosen for the visit because this year Luxembourg is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its two World War II liberations, both by the United States Army.
The Ambassador said the Grand Duke wanted to thank America for the liberations. The first was on Sept. 10, 1944, and the second was actually in January 1945, after part of Luxembourg was retaken by German troops, then taken again by the American Army in the Battle of the Bulge.

Below is a statement from the Interim Prime Minister of Iraq Awad Allawi.
..."The second message is quite simple and one that I would like to deliver directly from my people to yours: Thank you, America."
Below is a TV ad from Iraqi's to America
"Saddam’s goal was to bury every living Kurd…
“Thank you, America.”
The Kurds of Iraqi Kurdistan just want to say ‘thank you’…
for helping us win our freedom.
“Thank you for democracy.”
“Thank you, America.”
KURDISH HERO GIRL:
On November 30, in Charlotte, Consul General of France in Atlanta presented "Thank you America" Certificates to 28 veterans and members of the families of those who passed away recently. France also presented America with a little statue saying "thanks" following WWII that stands in the NY harbor to this day.
btw- There is plenty more from virtually every free country on this hateful little rock on which we reside.
