56. No one limits your offense, there are big issues with how it is reacted to.

Things like taking over countries, drones wasting folk, blowing up their people by the tens of thousands, destroying infrastructure, and installing puppets and murdering folks in an embassy, or blowing up skyscrapers and nightclubs, chopping off innocent peoples heads are not the best ways to react. All one is doing is piling the shit up higher so more falls on all our heads.

We need to get the fuck out of their lands and leave these folks alone but there is the oil and other resources so that isn't happening so the cost is some blood greases the wheels to keep everything moving but there is no acceptance of the costs of doing business factor so every day actually bears more bad blood than the one before and the cuts go deeper and deeper.

I get the impression you don't get that the things you are offended about are reactions to hundreds of years and ongoing offenses. We (the west) have a shit list gong back to the Crusades too and have almost inarguable killed and injured more. I have no doubt that there have been days where we did more damage to innocent people in Iraq than your whole list. How many have been killed, hurt, impoverished, and dislocated just over the last hundred years, 50, 20, or even 10 years?

There is no right not to be offended, for anyone. Not only CAN you be offended, you'd best expect it and channel your reaction rationally as circumstances allow.
