I do hope Amena and VoA are reading this:
The Voice of America channel just broadcast a testimony from Amena, a Pakistani American, about her life in America, and how wonderful it is to be a Pakistani-American, and what Pakistanis should think when they think of America (i.e the US of A).
First of all, sorry but this reaffirms the feeling that it is typical of Americans, even when they are Pakistani-Americans, to dictate to others what to think.
Next, she says when the Pakistanis think of America, they should think of her and her family, and that she is not a bad person.
Who said this was the issue?
The good in you, Ms Amena, is not the issue at all.
The issue, Ms Amena, is that the US of A is a greedy Imperialist country,
which has caused coups bringing criminals to power in other countries,
human rights violations in the third world,
conspired with criminals to thwart the will of common people in the third world,
actively supported the subjugation, torture and murder of millions,
and has been directly engaged in this itself.
We are not impressed, VoA. Kindly give the advertisement money back to the people of the
US, and go back to the drawing board.
