If you set yourself up to be the policeman of the world and demand that other nation states act as you deem fit, then you have only yourself to
blame if you set yourself up for a swift kick to your gonads.
As far as I know, the USA is the only country to have ever used weapons of mass destruction - by bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. (The USA, prior to
GWI, called biological and chemical agents WMDs, simply because it suited their purpose to do so at the time. They are not!)
The US is hell bent on blaming everybody else for the state of the world, a world which I might add, the US attempted to make in it's own image, from
Former friends and allies in the Far and Near East rail against the US because of it's misguided foreign policy and the ineptitude of it's military
leaders in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan.
Don't you realise that Saudi Arabia hates you with a passion? Are Americans that stupidly blind to what is happening in that kingdom?
Because of that ineptitude and often ill-concealed contempt for people often regarded as her inferiors, the US has suddenly found itself an 'enemy of
the people' of the world.
That is not to say that we Brits are not blameless but, as somebody once said, "One maqn's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter!"
Your covert support [NORAID] for all things IRA during the 30 odd years of murder, rape and terror in Northern Ireland and your apparent support for
the Muj in Afghanistan during the Russian occupation are, two sides of the same coin.
To my mind, the USA cannot make up it's own mind. It says, "Don't do as I do, do as I say!" and then lambasts others who dare to step out of line
when they decide to "do as I do!"
Much like Iran and North Korea. Perhaps Iran does want it's own nuclear weapon, but that is up to the Iranians. They are a Nation State and THEY
should be in charge of their own destiny, not the US of A.
North Korea has nuclear weapons, well not that many, but enough to make America think twice about taking military action.
But where was America when Israel and South Africa developed their nuclear weapons? Oh I forgot. They were supplying the enriched uranium, via
Now we have the Yanks and Brits doing another double act in yet another country that American wealth cannot buy.
Now we have a new administration in the US. I for one hope that Americans can finally wake up and smell the stuff that's coming their way and
realise, finally, what it is.
The brown stuff has hit so many fans that I fear the US will drag we Brits deeper and deeper in to the abyss - hence the world recession.
Just another thing that was 'made in America'.
