    American's Journey: Are Americans only hearing one side of the story?


    Are Americans only hearing one side of the story?
    There are two sides to every story. Is it possible that Americans are given access to only one side of the story involving struggles in the middle East? I wonder if we knew the whole story our perspective might change to one reflecting more balance. I wonder if it is our business at all - except that it seems wrong to stand by while people slaughter each other when one has the power to stop it. But are we doing that? Can Americans form a reasoned opinion based on the information presented to the American public through normal media outlets? The American federal government ignores President George Washington's warning stated in his 1796 Farewell Address : to stay out of foreign entanglements - Why? Are they wiser than he?

    Maybe if you went to the link and read and listened you would know?


    Its time to listen to all sides wether you agree with them or not. Just listening to US news only will cause us to fail in anything we do because we will be uninformed as to where the world really stands on things.

    Maybe you need to wake up. People aren't uninformed because they don't agree with what YOU think is right; which, is ass-backward from the facts.

    So are you accusing the mainstream American media of being biased? You know sorta like when they syncophantically followed Barack Obama around like a happy puppy and reported nothing about his marxist policies, his long list of secrets, and his radical associations? That kind of "uninformed"?

    I read as much as I can find on everything. I dont have to agree with waht I read but I do find it a very good idea to read the side I dont agree with.

    This link is not what I beleive but it is some of what Ive read.

    Are you willing to truely try to understand all the sides?

    Maybe we can avoid having to ask "why do they hate us" again.

    Of course it is. The fact is, there are no such things as "Palestinians" and haven't been for centuries. These people are Arabs. They can go anywhere in the Arab world they want.

    They are there by choice. THEY chose to be represented by a terrorist organization and they choose to use terrorist tactics against noncombatants and they choose not to just take what they got when they certainly didn't deserve it and shut up about it.

    This is all about choice and the consequences thereof. People trying to paint them as some kind of victims need their heads examined. The only thing they are victim to are their own misdeeds.

    I didn't see anything in the text, and it gave me no reason to spend time on the videos. So I'm asking what YOU think, not what the vids say. So let's try it again:

    So are you accusing the mainstream American media of being biased? You know sorta like when they syncophantically followed Barack Obama around like a happy puppy and reported nothing about his marxist policies, his long list of secrets, and his radical associations? That kind of "uninformed"?
