Plainly, what you Greenwich believe happened during the latter part of and following WWII, and what I believe happened, same period, differ markedly. Enough that one of us, perhaps both, must believe it wrong.
I don’t see value in arguing over that history here and at this time. I simply want to note that you believe that several high ideals of that period should be enforced on the USAmerica, even if they were never adopted in a treaty following the war. Such as
- No nation (meaning the USA) shall attack its own populace.
- No nation shall attack (meaning the USA and Western nations) shall attack another nation without getting Security Council approval.
- No nation shall possess or use poison gas.
- No nation shall torture anyone.
- Every nation (particularly the USA) shall get rid of nuclear weapons.
- Racism is evil, and USA must mend its errors.
- Every nation (particularly the USA) must provide healthcare for all its citizens (Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
- Every nation (particularly the USA) must protect the right of workers to form unions to demand better conditions.
- No nation shall possess landmines.
- And more, etc. etc. etc.
Progressives are sharp on demanding that the USA live up to those high standards. They seem blind to anyone else violating them. (Perhaps for Chomsky reasons that the don’t want the USA doing anything militarily to other nations that do violate them…)
