Alas JTT perhaps a slight exaggeration. Today it's generally acknowledged for instance that my hero Roosevelt was right even though against majority and even somewhat underhanded
Even if it is a "slight" exaggeration, Dale, it's a damning indictment of what the US actually is, especially, ESPECIALLY when you compare it to the propaganda.
And of course, I was not referring to internal US policies. I've asked before for someone, anyone to offer an example where the US does something without expecting something in return wrt foreign countries. There has been no takers.
However as I implied we might have been misled while most of our hearts were in the right place. Few of us are as militant as the typical Eastern fanatic in such overwhelming numbers without the slightest chance of redemption
You have been mightily misled. Why you stand for it, when y'all supposedly stand for government by the people
is the great mystery.
It's cold comfort for the 10 million slaughtered, not even considering the multiplier effect for overall suffering when 10 million are murdered, that y'all aren't militant.
Wasn't it 88% of you idiots who were for the invasion of Iraq?
Consider just how militant y'all would be if you had another country interfering in your country for generations, another country brutalizing your people, stealing your wealth. For dog's sake, 20% of Americans polled thought that the Japanese race should be exterminated. Small wonder that they believed they had to fight to the death.
Remember the Japanese had seen the incredible brutality that the US heaped upon the people of the Philippines, people who the US made a huge pretense of liberating from the Spanish.
