To say that capitalism causes terrorism is horse crap on a grand scale.terrorism is and always has been, caused by religion.This fact is NOT open for debate. Secondly I find it interesting that it is always, with no exceptions, up to the united states to have to change and fix everything, but everyone wants us to do it their way. If they had the answers, they wouldn't need our help.

What a factless bunch of crap. People who hate this country so much should leave. There are plenty of people who would love you in their stupid hate filled opinions.

#11 I got it but I reject it. What we have is no longer capitalism,But a perverse socialized shell of what once was the greatest system ever devised. #12 Just say what you mean. "The world will be fair and just when the world has taken all it can from the USA and all peoples are equally poor." Wait to see who takes over who when the USA can no longer come to the aid and defense of weaker nations.If you think Russia,China,or any one from the middle east will treat you more fairly then you are too far gone to help.Sadly we are on our way out. GOOD LUCK world!

It's funny how things always revert back to human nature. We like living under oligarchies, either dictatorships, monarchies or plutonomies.

People are lazy, stupid, selfish creatures and anyone that comes along with ridiculous promises gets their support and total loyalty.

#10 which country?
You are aware that most of the comments written here are by foreigners from your point of view. Snotr users are from all over the world.

When i go to a restaurant in germany ( and i suspect the same goes for indonesia, new zealand, peru and the whole rest of the world) and try to get a water i get offered one produced by coca cola (called bonaqua) over here. When i visit the rest of the world i sometimes have difficulties getting something else to drink than coca cola.

And i can get on with nestle, monsanto, shell, mcdonalds, ikea and hundreads of other companies. It' not countries that are the root of this problem, it's companies that have billions of dollars for marketing and lobbyists, till they get what they want, which is usually lots and lots of money.

Capitalism is when the fittest company survives and the customer gets the best product. Nowadays there is no competition left in most industries. Small oligopols of 2-5 companies share the world market. What has that got to do with capitalism?

Well said. Well animated too. Ttoo bad you can't see the commercialized map of the world from outer space, how it really is.

All this would be worth watching is it weren't complete nonsense. The Iraq oil went to China. Look it up.
