Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

58,000 Americans dead and probably over a million in the area (no way to know for sure, people are still dying thanks to the millions of pounds of mines and bombs dropped there) over the "non event" or false flag, whichever you prefer, that was the Gulf Of Tonkin incident.

You have the deaths under the Shah (put in by the USA) and another dozen or so dictators, you have COINTELPRO targeting minorities and those that didn't follow the system, so yes the USSR killed more of their own people, the USA prefers to kill brown and yellow third world people.

Look up the "CIA and military interventions post WWII" map and look at how many countries have gotten a taste of that USA way of doing things, whether you think its better to kill your own people or kill other people? Well dead is dead, and while I doubt anybody will top Stalin on body counts just because you can't beat the champ doesn't make those deaths not count.

As an American I can say the country certainly doesn't look anything like what I grew up in, you go to the flyover states and frankly it looks like the depression, boarded up buildings and closed down business districts, its really scary. It would be too easy to get someone like the crazy Austrian in power here, we even have our own replacement for the Jews, the illegals.

There does seem strangely little remembrance for the dead at US soil... (for example from the labour struggle )

PS. And about "the country certainly doesn't look anything like what I grew up in" ...that's still while consuming way more resources than anybody else ( ), what will it be once they dry up?
