Your comprehension of a culture you do not know is just astounding. astounding!   You must live in the West and understand how they are and are a little like that yourself to know them so well.

Let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

I thought our conversation is is over. Well, its not particularly about Westerners, its more about my views about human-beings, in general. I believe human-beings can act like angels, but usually, they act very selfishly (irrespective of acting morally or immorally).

Bismillah,

Lameese, I agree with you.

Mockba, I agree with you that it is better not to use these definitions of the East and the West.

GWB is in the West and so am I.  Is he the West?  Am I?  This is inaccurate grouping terminology mixing him and me together! Let's fix this also.  (Along with never using Jihad or Islaam in terrorist organization's names.  We rename them Death Cultists as B suggested, or other things as others may suggest.)

Only rich people have been elected president for the longest time.  How are they relevant to me???  Bush and Kerry were just two rich guys without a care or a clue. 

The people at the poll didn't even know how to tell me to write in a candidate!  Fortunately, I figured it out.  This was not a democratic election because of this lack of education on the process and our rights and choices as voters.

West bashing?  I could East bash easily, but that wouldn't be accurate, because it's just some of the people in Jordan (maybe a lot of them) who I could write mean stuff about.  So there would have to be two new forums to be fair; and an active interest in such "discussion".
