I do not think you can get an American opinion from a three Americans (I am excluding my dear Canadian curly, the moderator (and co-founder
) since she did not give an opinion and my opinion since I am half Brasilian and sort of have an “outsider looking in” view).
There are many Americans who support the war (I am not one of them), there are many Americans who do not support the war, and many who care about the lives of the American and British troops (I care about them as well as the innocent Iraqis who die because of this senseless invasion).
Since this is not one of the main boards you are not going to get as many posts and the varied American views. Using posters who wrote ad hominem fallacies is not a good way to formulate an opinion about the entire American culture and its view on the war. Everyone I know does not support the war however many of them support the troops fighting there and are mad that their loved one has to participate in this senseless invasion (most people I know are well traveled and have experienced different cultures while growing up). And BTW, the war is not only about keeping the United States safe.
Look forward to the Egyptian thread. I have a few Egyptian and many Arab, Persian, and Kurdish friends and they love to share their culture with me as I love to share my Brasilian and American culture with them
And remember tolerance, empathy, and understanding is needed from all parties involved.
