  •  Yes, how about something different? (12+ / 0-)

    How about:

    not getting involved in another country's civil war?

    not supplying arms to rebels linked to Al Qaeda, whom we have been fighting (unsuccessfully I might add) in Afghanistan for 12 years?

    not toeing the line dictated by the most autocratic, theocratic, feudal, anti-democratic regimes in the Middle East: Saudi and Qatar?

    not being the country that has started more unilateral wars of aggression than any other since 1950?

    not being the country that has wrecked Iraq and Libya and caused endless death, misery, displacement of people, and wholesale destruction for the last 12 years?

    not being the world's biggest supplier of arms?

    not being a non-ratifier of the ICC, so that our own war criminals will get away scott free?

    not being the country that has castrated the UN by vetoing every motion concerned with Israel?

    not being the country which used agent orange in VN, white phosphorus and depleted uraniam in Iraq?

    not being the country with a drone program that has killed infinitely more innocent civilians than allegged terrorists?

    I could continue....

    We're shocked by a naked nipple, but not by naked aggression.
