I have often wondered the same. Are we really the bad guys? Are we on the wrong side?
Last night I came across a piece of information that chilled me to the bone.
Paul Wolfowitz and the Wolfowitz doctrine. During G.W.Bush administration Wolfowitz was called upon to draft a new foreign policy document. The Wolfowitz foreign policy draft contained very straight forward language for National Defense by the use of unilateral action, preventive and preemptive strikes, toppling regimes, preventing any other country state from becoming a new super power. The emphasis amounts to preventive war to maintain peace and superiority.
While the Wolfowitz draft was considered too harsh, too forward, too aggressive it was then edited by Dick Cheney and Colin Powell (We are all know these two Neo-Cons). The final and implemented document became the Bush Doctrine. The Bush Doctrine as I read it, is merely a rewritten, sugar coated, more palatable, and politically correct version of the Wolfowitz Doctrine... basically one and the same.
Fast forward to today and our current Commander and Chief. While He may claim His foreign policy is His own, events I believe demonstrate otherwise. IMHO the Wolfowitz/Bush Doctrine is in full swing and gaining traction.
One has to question and wonder the sanity of preemptive war to maintain peace and stability, especially when preemptive action is ongoing and there is no peace and creates even less stability.
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." --- Theodore Roosevelt
