Yeah, much like Iraq I suppose. The Western Powers seem outstanding at breaking things...but fail somewhere in the process for fixing them afterward.
After all, 'better nations' for the "people" have been the supposed reasons why previously stable nations have been turned into free fire war
zones that are left to their own devices for the long term, right?
I think people in the future would prefer not having this kind of help, eh?
Well unfortunately this is just disinformation, I don't think in this case it is meant to be though. Fact is we did not break anything. For the
first time in their history they were free and could vote for their leaders. Were there problems, of course. The people who are breaking things
are the Iranians and other fanatical muslim terrorist groups who do not want democracy to succeed.
Second it is history. You must understand these people have been killing each other based on clan or tribal allegiance since beginning of time.
You did not have this under the dictators because they crushed the opposing groups.
No we don't break things. We give them the opportunity, they have to do something with it.
This "opportunity" thing? is it like greatness?
Some a born great... some achieve great...some have greatness thrust upon them... etc.
Because in my eyes that is what I see from imperialist mind set of opportunity given from the western world, opportunity thrust upon the less
fortunate. Usually for the profit of the ones doing the thrusting, imperialism for lack of a better word.
Call it what you will but I see it as naughty capitalism.
Hey guys, we are gonna build a big canal through your country. Yes it will be messy and yes it will not look anything like it did before we arrived
but hey, at least you will have some finance to play with and lots of new farm land available to grow things and sell to us
So yes opportunity maybe... but opportunity for whom?
A foreign policy doesn't need to physically break anything to be damaging. 1 Million Libyans displaced to foreign nations or nearly 2 million Syrians
doing the same thing is quite damaging enough as far as I can see it. Our western nations collective foreign policies are not damaging at all and
didn't break anything in Libya did they? Or Syria for that matter.
Nope everything is hunky dory, round of applause for the free world.
