Why Do Americans Think Too Highly of Themselves ??

Why Do Americans think too highly of themselves....
The Americans are always underestimating and despising other nations ,,, They think they are the best .....
Desrcibing Iraq as a POOR country ,,,
Iraqis as POOR ,,,uneducated....
PLEASE bear with me ,,,,
Read this article ...

I think that all this is a BIG LIE & HYPOCRISY as I wrote in many articles previously ….The whole world is now aware that whichever colour , race and origin – the president of the USA still the same ,,,,different faces for one coin …. As for the American people they , themselves, can be good or bad; righteous or not; hypocrites or not just as all other nations….There is not any nation that has 100% perfect people ….However, there is a point which is worth mentioning here: most of the American people make generalization and believe in whatever said or announced to them without rationalization or shall I say they are always drifted by the media and whatever is shown on their TVs ; take what is happening in Iraq …it is a pity that most nations have known Iraq after the invasion ,,,,29 years ago , I was in England studying for my higher degrees ,,,,once I visited a school and the principle introduced me to the students as an Iraqi who has come to England to complete her study ,,,then he asked the students : “ Do you know where Iraq is ?”Very few raised their hands ,,,,the answer came as Iran ,,,,so I had to explain to them the difference between Iraq and Iraq,,, though there was a war going on between those two countries then ….However, the same fact goes now to the American people who do not differentiate between Iraq,, ,Afghanistan ,,,,or any other country in he East ….BUT ,,,now that the invasion occurred ,,,,many USA soldiers were recruited to serve here ..they started knowing Iraq ,,,,but all of them have very bad ideas and wrong pictures about Iraq …they all picture the Iraqis as savages ,,,uncivilized,, ,brutal ,,,dirty, ,,,uneducated ,,,,in short whatever bad things ,,,,connotation you can think of : what amazes me is that even those people who should be knowledgeable and educated such as those who are in authorities as mayors,,, governors, ,,,programmes introduces such as Operah Winfrey and Arnold Schwarzenegger who appear on TV speaking badly about the Iraqi people and describing Iraq and the Iraqi as DIRTY …or Mel Odom , the author of the TV series NCIS who describe the most beautiful and luxurious IZ ( International Zone) – previously named GZ( Green Zone) ,,,,which are , in fact , the presidential palaces and which is now occupied by the American authorities here in Iraq ,,,as well as the USA Embassy , British Embassy and others …. It is so strange that that author describes this place as the dirtiest and most primitive place as shown in one of his series ….not only this but the way he describe how the USA tanks enter Baghdad is really stupid ,,,shall I say funny or odd ,,,,,,which can not be believed by even an idiot …. We were so surprised to watch a scene wherein the USA tank entering Baghdad ,,,,exactly in the GZ and a man who was supposed to be a Baghdadi citizen ,,,,standing in front of the tank and defying the soldier who was driving the tank ,,,,mocking him ,,,shouting at him and cursing him ,,,,preventing him from entering the street ,,,,?????????????????What irony ,,,what a joke ,,,what a strange scene which can only be seen in cartoon maybe ,,,or dreams ,,,, not only that but all over Iraq men of the cities put either modern clothes or what is called a dishdasha – similar to the gulf states outfit …..usually bare headed and the same iqal – head cover- of the gulf for those of the rural areas or villagers ,,,,,sometimes few old men in cities put on that outfit which is exactly as the gulf clothes ,,,,women are either fashionable as western fashion without a head cover or they wear Islamic long dresses wit a head scarf … in some of the rural and the religious places , nowadays, women wear the abaya – which is a black cloth like a cloak but it covers the head as well as the body …..what that odd author did was he pictured one person who was supposed to be a Baghdadi wearing an outfit of those Afghans ,,,to mix everything up and complicate matters ,,,by degrading and despising Iraqis , the author has made a false untrue picture …possibly to satisfy his ego … he then called the sister of that so called friend of the American soldier who was supposed to have helped her own brother and therefore she came over to help him ,,,,,,anyway then his sister appeared and she was a teenager who dropped school because her father refused to let her continue her studies ….her name is Tabeena …..I have never heard such a name neither in Iraq ,,,nor in any other Arab countries ,,,,, so the US soldier came over and gave this girl a laptop to let her know what is around ….of course , herein, many sentences were said indicating the ignorance of the Iraqis ….For years and years the Iraqis know how to use the computer and the lap top ….But it really hurts to see that Bush has transplanted all the malicious wrong poisonous ideas about Iraq and the Iraqis by this bloody war …..I would like , here, to say to any one whether American or not that the Iraqis are educated, ,,,knowledgeable and not savages as you think …..I would like to remind those pompous names such as Oprah Winfrey, Mel Odom , Arnold Schwarzenegger and others who despise other nationality ….I want to remind them of the proverb : If you know three languages you are trilingual If you know two languages you are bilingual If you know one language you are American ….I am Iraqi and I am trilingual ……..
PLEASE STOP thinking of yourselves as you are the elites …the best ,,,,because you are not ,,,,,By the way ,,,I am not one of the best people in my country ,,,,there are better ,,,,After all ,,,,you Americans are so fussy about superficial matters such as appearance,, ,make up ,,,,clothes ,,,,you adore actors,,, pop stars ,,,,in short ……you have never been more realistic,,,, more humane ,,,,more true than any other nations…
STOP BRAGGING ABOUT WHAT OR WHO YOU ARE BECAUSE you are nothing but FOOLS!!!!!......??????
