A right on article.
One of our readers (going under the screen name with initials TJ) will often take me to task when I speak about the corruption of the Government of the United States of America wondering why I do not acknowledge that there others that are worse.
This author states my mindset very clearly.
The Governments of Russia or of China or of North Korea do not send their militaries the world over to prop up despots and thugs while lecturing others on freedom liberty and democracy. They do not claim to be the worlds one indispensable nation and claim they are exceptional over all others . They do not claim that human values like peace and liberty and justice are uniquely their own as Presidents of the United States of America do.
They do not spout phrases like "America does not have to apologize for anything".
The words that come out of the mouths of leaders of the US government , that shameless hypocrisy that is expressed each time one of them speaks , is seen in the same way by this author as I and billions of people the world over see it .
This hypocrisy is about the only thing that is exceptional about the Goverment of the USA which has one and only one purpose, that to steal all of the resources on this Earth for the benefit of the one percent.
