I mean I realize my country has done a lot of questionable and sometimes outright bad stuff but why do people insist on telling me I live in a country that ‘only exists to make others suffer’ as one person said to me recently.
Their example of the US being unprovokingly evil was the bombing of Hiroshima and the other city
My response was “If the US had no justification for bombing Japan, then what justification did Japan have for attacking Pearl Harbor, when the US wasn’t even in the war at that time?”
I don’t get it, I know my country isn’t great, but I also know that without the US a lot of these people who are posting this stuff would likely be living under Nazi rule or worse. One of these people lives in a certain country (I wont say which see if you can guess) that is only protected from Russia by the alliance they have with the US, through NATO.
any one have thoughts on this?
