I am disappointed by the United States government in their response to the hostage crisis. All they can say is that they do not do deals with terrorists. If they have the best military forces in the world why can’t they save the life of de la Cruz and the other hostages or even stop these Iraqi militants?
Because of the Philippine government’s action I bet the US government will bully the Philippines yet again. Bullying as an action they do best especially to poor republics.
While I am disappointed by the Bush administration I do not hate the United States and its citizens. It is sad to realise that the great United States of America is being used for the selfish interests of a few.
