    Written by an Australian Dentist

    To Kill an American
    You probably missed this in the rush of news, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper, an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.

    So an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is . So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)

    'An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish , Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.

    An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

    An American is Christian , or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan . The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

    An American is also free to believe in no religion.. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

    An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world.

    The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

    An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

    When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!


    As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan.

    The national symbol of America , The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America.

    Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11 , 2001 earning a better life for their families. It's been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

    So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo , and Stalin , and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world.. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself . Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.


    From an e-mail I received. Pass it on!

    They just can't hold public office and are expected to lie in court so they don't get charged with contempt.

    welll... White land-owning men, anyway
    Let's ask China, India, Cuba, Venezuela...

    Not really. We kept the Russians from getting stronger and left the Afghans with the aftermath.

    right... we wanted to kill our old CIA opuppet because he turned on us. We never cared about the Afghans until 9/11, just like we never gave a shit about the Jews until Dec 7th, 1941
    Let's open our textbooks and see how America treated the Chinese, Italians, Polish, Irish, and other immigrants in reality...
    Hitler never attacked us.
    Only after we invaded- or did you never actually read a history book?
    I swear I read some shit just like that, except 'American' was replaced with 'Proletarian' and they built the whole fucking world


    Whoever wrote that e-mail is a nitwit

    Pakistan is a problem.

    In recent surveys the majority of Pakistanis did not blame the Taliban or related Islamic fascists for the terror acts they commit against their fellow Islamic civilians, the majority blamed the US and their own democratic government.

    This idiocy is fueled by many of their politicians, like the former cricketer Imran Khan, those who fuel irrational xenophobia and play with an Islamic extremism for short term political gain but then find they really can not control such Islamic extreamism.

    So we have a dysfunctional society who blames everyone but themselves for their dysfunction and they have nuclear weapons.

    Not good.

    The most important international relationship, in my mind, is the US and India right now.

    This is the critical pivot point for democracy.

    Don't take it seriously, Australian dentists always make a mountain out of a molar.

    No true blue Australian takes dentists seriously.

    Which is why we never smile.

    Still, we are better than the British, who smile but should not.
