Anyone else miss being the good guys?

I really cannot say this enough.

i don't know about politics. Yes i will vote. We not only have done severe damage but also good. Don't ask i don't know yet. Would i be siding with isolationists if is said that we should take care of our own problems before worrying about others. I have mixed feelings about the video, but there is one nagging feeling that i do have. "We have done some good." Women can vote over there now. More people vote over there than over in our own country. That is some good.

Yes i do miss being one of the good guys. I hate being thought of as greedy, well yes i kinda am but i also am willing to give something up if someone else needs it.

I think that Americans should start playing a bigger role in their comunity, working outside their comfort zone. Yes that includes me... I don't work outside my comfort zone. God help us all...

Thank you for reminding me that not ALL Americans are narcissists.....
that some common sense still exists and that some individuals can still think for themselves.

Hey Peter,

I like your site. Good articles and videos. I moved to Los Angeles from Astoria Queens a year after 9/11.

Peter, tell me. Can you still smell that toxic noxious oder from the towers when they fell? I don't think I can ever get that smell out of my head.

In response the "women can vote over there now." Iraqi women were given the right to vote in 1980. Since the "regime change" more conservative islamists have gained political power and women are actually in danger of losing rights/ freedoms. Many women are afraid to leave the house without a veil.

The U.S. did help the women of Afganistan, however. The right to vote for women was reinstated by the U.S when the Taliban was overthrown. (Women's suffrage was revoked from 1996-2001.) Unfortunately, the country is a security nightmare right now, so it will take more that the right to vote to help women and children there.

I love your blog. You have a way of addressing the issues with clarity and grace.

I keep thinking that eventually the American people will get fed up with this administration. I don't know, maybe we're all just too removed from what's actually going on. We can ignore the realities too easily while driving around in our great big Hummers, talking on our tiny little cell phones. (sigh)
How do the people get the powerful elite to stop lining their pockets with blood money and stop the madness?

I'll be voting come the midterm elections, but how many others will?

P.S. somethingsphishy and lametemp, I was at the WTC on 9/11. I'll never forget that smell either.

"Women over there can vote now"... it's statements like this that make me nuts.. people are sooo ignorant and the stupid politicians spew lies all the time... I can't tell you how many times I've hearf dick cheney, tom delay and rick santorum say the same knowing that they are repeating lies and leaving out the truth that they've been allowed to vote for 26 years and that in Iraq, women had more rights than most middle eastern women. Of course, that's changed now that women are being pushed back into burkas. Now they're saying they found WMD. It's criminal.

I am ashamed to be american. Ashamed.
