    From the founding of the country, the United States has committed innumerable amounts of atrocities upon humans for the profit of the rich.
    From killing Indians for land, gold, and oil. To slavery. To the creation of the largest terrotist organization on the planet, the CIA. To countless military and CIA exploits. It is clear to all that the USA is the single largest terror on the globe today.

    Does anybody have a good list of all the atrocities the USA has committed throughout its history?

    I think the CIA tried to assassinate Fidel Castro 618 times.

    Terrorism usually involves deliberately targetting innocent civilians.

    To call the CIA a terrorist organisation is stretching things, isn't it?

    Terrorism could also be using violence and fear, to gain power.

    Couldn't quite rule that out from the C.I.A. since they do use fear and violence.

    But even still you're right, it's a pretty big stretch

    Just wanted this quoted...

    Perfect is something America isn't

    But how about you get a list of all the "astrocities" committed by other countries. I'm willing to bet every single one of them has some major problems.

    That's right. Instead of admitting the brutality and greed of the US just change the subject and ask why OTHER countries aren't examined for atrocities.
    They are. The US seems to believe they are above scrutiny.

    No, that's simply statecraft. You can define that as terrorism if you want, but then all states in history would qualify as terrorist organizations, since they govern by monopolizing the use of violence. Violence and fear are simply too broad of terms for that definition to have any use.

    Much better to define terrorism as targetting of civilians to achieve political ends. That isn't to say that the CIA hasn't been guilty of such acts, but it bears mentioning that any state that deploys weapons of mass destruction is guilty of much worse terrorism than the CIA has ever pulled off.

    WTF?
    That's exactly what the CIA does.

    And no that is changing the definiton of terrorism.
    Terrorism is any act of terror against anybody.
    If a bully tries to bully a kid at school that is terrorism.

    The terrorism that we are talking about is the bullying and killing of others for specific purposes/profit.

    The CIA targets civilians more than they target anybody else.

    Perhaps he is talking to himself. Maybe he is the communist. Or worse. A capitalist.

    Irrelevant. Presumptuous. I'd like to see your proof that I ever bullied anyone.

    Life feeds on life.

    Someone wins, someone loses.

    If you think that's unfair, the Universe could care less.

    You must be having "it" too good to have to worry much about saving your own ass from the serious consequences of predation.

    Living off the largesse of others because it's easy.

    Since you prefer the low road, you must be a natural bottom feeder.

    Can't go out and kill something because you must. Gotta wait for yo mommie to properly prepare yo meals for yu.

    Unfortunately this tantrum rant is not a list of USA atrocities.
    Try listing them or providing a link to a site that describes the history rise of the United States as a result of mass murderous terrorism accross the globe, and the foundation of the master organization of world terror, the CIA, which has conducted act after countless act of terrorsim. All for the sake of regulating USA economy for happiness and freedom of the rich. One nation under God with liberty and justice for the rich and only for the rich might makes right.

    Who was discussing other countries? We are discussing the USA here. Please refer to thread title.

    Did you intend to bring that up in a "everyone else does bad things too" way in order to try to say that it's OK that the US has done these things because other countries do bad things? I really hope not, because that is the way 9 year olds argue.
