Sixty years is six decades, unless I missed something.
Basicaly it was counted from end of WW2 I almost lost a friend thanks to "humanitarian bombing" of "Serbian military stuff", witch mostly killed civilians, so... I somewhat can't forget the lies and it also show a nice comparsion to the Russians (you know, Russians = evil commies) behaviour after WW2.
One have to realize that altrought they are very bad, they are nowhere near what US of A did... Quite a surprise it was to me...

Well, you got a point. England was in past a shining example of imperial collonialism True enought.
However in last 60 years aren't nowhere near as bad as US. True, Britons helped Americansl like lapdog's almost everywhere, however their contribution to the deaths of innocent are rather small and I would call them more civilized...
My point, however, is, that every nation did pretty ugly things in heir past. It won't help much bringing it all up and making it as sort of "de-demonizing" of USA, since they are rather new country and probably did not even last enough.
I compared the last 60 years, because this is the last 60 years when people can break or fussion (or fission) atoms. The atomic age. Manking now have the power to not only destroy themselves, but perhaps destroy the whole planet - or at least kill every higher life form on it for pretty long time.
Therefore one should expect that people take their responsibility and won't push each other to do bad things. However it looks like there is certain nation of murderers, who systematically igniting conflict's all around the globe while permamently talking about freedoms, democracy and human rights - while at the same time taking freedoms, lives, destroying democratic governments that did not seems fit to them, installing dictators and then occupating countries to get rid of these "tyrants". Meanwhile steping upon every basic human right. That is why you can't compare past crimes with todays ones.
Besides, into the collonial years was everyone doing it. If England was not doing it, then someone else could take the place. We just need time to learn how to live with theirselfs, respecting others and did not starting wars for profit....
And that could be called civilized.
What US of A is doing is the exact oposite and the arrogance of all the lies surrounding their goals makes someone rethink if Hitler was as evil, as they are now.
Because with Hitler - it was apparent. No hiding. He said what he think openly and admit the goals and won't call killing people "liberating"...
Maybe it is just me, but I can't stand these lies.
I quess I prefer murderer who stands for what he believe, instead of murdering lying thief.
