USA: Remember, karma is a bitch.
Thanks to your gov’t and your CIA, today 38 years ago begun one of the darkest chapters of the history of Chile. Your gov’t sponsored and did nothing for the thousands that were tortured, killed and “disappeared”. Why? Because your gov’t (and most of you, I hate to say) hate socialism. And you not only sponsored the coup d’état here in Chile but also in Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia and so on, and helped, by action or omission, the dictatorships and the genocide and other atrocities that they did to our people, just because we thought different than you do, because we’d (and have) a different ideology than you have. And what was the reason behind the terrorists attacks of 9/11? Yep! you’re right: the same fucking hatred and intolerance.
Obama visited Chile last March and although he had THE golden opportunity to ask for forgiven in name of the US gov’t but he didn’t even mention it.
The US attacked Libia because of Gaddafi’s dictatorship, because he was killing innocent people, because YOU’RE (allegedly) the protectors of FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY. My ass! Where were your Army, your Air Force from 1973 to 1990 when tens of thousands of Chileans where tortured or killed. Oh! that’s right! your gov’t was behind Pinochet’s dictatorship! And don’t you dare to say that the “Historic context” justified your actions.
Many of you say that you respect life, some of you might be against abortion because of that, some of you might be against death penalty because of that… but let me ask you something, is human life only important when is an American life? when is a Chilean, an Argentinean, a Brazilian, an Iraqi life is not important? Last time I checked we all were homo sapiens, human beings, ergo your life is not more important than mine, we’re all the same and both your and mine life deserve respect. it’s more than ok to despise other’s person opinion, but you must never despise that person’s life. Never.
I’m not saying that is good nor fair what happened ten years ago, all I’m saying it’s that if you were shocked and condemned that horrific action, what could we, the 17 million of Chileans, say about your actions on our country against our people almost 40 years ago? Think about it.
Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we?
Without Muslims you wouldn’t have:
Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons
Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.)
Treatment of Cowpox
3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts)
Gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen.
- Mariner’s Compass
- Soft drinks
- Plastic surgery
- Manufacturing of paper and cloth
It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.
It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.
It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.
The list goes on………..
Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!
I agree with all of this. However, I would like to imagine a world sans religious fanaticism. These people have invented and discovered wonderful things, regardless of their faith. It’s when religion gets in the way of progress that the worst in us is revealed, and barbaric zealots acting in the name of their faith and their book kill others they deem ‘evil’ and ‘satanic’…
