America – a country who claimed the most powerfull country and super power country of the worlds. May be because they have the biggest amount of nuclear weapons and they can use it against any country in the name of terrorism war, like they are doing in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan etc. But have you ever thing what is the true face of the country who claim the superpower? America want to change Islamic counties in their living style and rules, which are horrible and today i am going to show you little horrible facts about America. Let me show you from the eye of a normal person.

Before writing anything i would like to mention that the meaning of this post is not a personal attack on Americans, but their Government.

Drug Addiction: Drug addiction is one of the most common diseases in the United States. It is estimated that over nine million Americans need drug treatment, making addiction more prevalent than coronary heart disease and stroke and as prevalent as cancer. Addiction exacts an enormous burden on the nation, costing an estimated $69 billion in lost productivity, $12 billion in health care costs and $10 billion in spending on child welfare systems. There are more than 9,000 drug-induced deaths each year; and 25% of the nation’s AIDS cases result from injection drug use. Further, drug related arrests have significantly contributed to the doubling of the nation’s incarceration rate since 1985.

Suicide Rate:

Do yoy know 1.5 million people slit their wrist, shoot their heads in U.S. every year. 1.3% of all deaths are from suicide. On average, one suicide occurs every 16 minutes. Suicide is the eleventh leading cause of death for all Americans. Suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people aged 15-24 year olds. (1st = accidents, 2nd = homicide) Suicide is the second leading cause of death for 25-34 year olds. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students. More males die from suicide than females. (4 male deaths by suicide for each female death by suicide.) More people die from suicide than from homicide. (Suicide ranks as the 11th leading cause of death; Homicide ranks 13th.) There were over 800,000 suicide attempts in 2005

Prostitution/ AIDS:

Estimated 5-10 million prostitutes walk US streets everyday. Absolute prohibition of adultery, prostitution and other forms of sexual promiscuity. In 2001, it was estimated that about 293,000 American youth were at risk of becoming victims of commercial sexual exploitation. Approximately 55% of street girls engage in formal prostitution. Of the girls engaged in formal prostitution, about 75% worked for a pimp. Pimp-controlled commercial sexual exploitation of children is linked to escort and massage services, private dancing, drinking and photographic clubs, major sporting and recreational events, major cultural events, conventions, and tourist destinations.

Rape Rate:

Every 32 seconds one rape takes place in United States of America. According to the Justice Department, one in two rape victims areunder age 18; one in six are under age 12. (Child Rape Victims, 1992. U.S. Department of Justice.)

  1. One of every four rapes take place in a public area or in a parking garage.
  2. 31% of female victims reported that the offender was a stranger.
  3. 68% of rapes occur between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m.
  4. At least 45% of rapists were under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  5. In 29% of rapes, the offender used a weapon.
  6. In 47% of rapes, the victim sustained injuries other than rape injuries.
  7. 75% of female rape victims require medical care after the attack.


Abortion:

Do you know 1.5 million children are killed in the womb every year in united states. A complete spontaneous abortion at about six weeks from conception, i.e. eight weeks from LMP

Divorce Rate:

According to the current divorce rate statistics, 50% of the marriages end in divorce. National center for Health’s divorce rate statistics foresaw a downward trend in US divorce rates i.e. up to 43%. But in 2002, census bureau revised the predicted divorce rate in America back to 50%. However, some recent divorce rate statistic shows the predicted US divorce rates as approximately 40%.

These are just few real facts of America. There are big list who make America a failed state like:

  1. Education is not free in America
  2. Medical is not free in America
  3. 45% of Americans don’t go to college etc.

American Government should correct their own country first before interrupt in other countries problem. Specially Muslim countries where rape rate, education rate prostitution rate, divorce rate etc are very low
