I can tell by your avatar that you support the States. Then tell me, why does not the USA condemn or speak out against Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Bolivia, Tajikistan, Egypt, Israel, etc, but instead actually fund these pro-torture, corrupt countries military and economically? This is where the great saying with the stone and the house made of glass comes in.
I'm not trying to blame anyone or any nation here. I'm just trying to get a little perspective on the whole situation.
I acknowledge the criticism. Let me make my own feelings perfectly clear. The US ought to speak out emphatically regarding all nations that promote murder and chaos. That includes Saudi Arabia; Egypt; France; Sudan; Syria; China; North Korea; and many others. I do not know enough about the particulars of Bolivia and Tajikistan to add them to this list. Nor do I agree that Israel is corrupt, or in my words, promotes murder and chaos.
Now, my feelings are not government policy, nor will they ever be government policy.
And whereas, I desire the US to condemn these countries, to answer your question "Why does not the USA condemn or speak out
," it is because the United States government has to decide which "bridges it is willing to die for."
There is much injustice in the world, and any person, any nation, has to decide which battles to fight. To declare all the world corrupt when you need good relations with some of these corrupt nations is foolish.
No one does this, including Sweden. Every nation has its corruptions and its own "weasley ways" of not offending other nations that it wishes to do business with. (Even Sweden).
The other side of the coin regarding "condemning" what you might believe is corrupt is to condemn no one at all, and to believe that everything is the same.
This leads to the immoral equation of saying and believing that religious Islamic fascists publicly slaughtering an innocent Jewish American citizen in the name of their G-d is the exact same as Israelis assassinating the leader of Hamas, who has publicly vowed to destroy Israel and who has sent killers to murder innocent Israelis.
All things are not the same.
There is a difference between the deliberate act of murdering innocents because you believe G-d approves of your actions and acts of war, which you believe are necessary to preserve your country.
The first is an immoral, evil act.
The second could be misquided; could be wrong; or it could be the best possible course, but it is not immoral and evil if you are not deliberately murdering innocents.
When a nation or people believe that all death; all war; all corruption is exactly the same as any other, then that nation or people is, by definition, an immoral people. They have rejected morality in the name of equality. And that is a false paradigm.
Therefore, whereas I might wish the USA to condemn all immoral acts, I understand the need for accommodating nations that may be less immoral than others.
I also believe that those who choose not to condemn the most immoral acts of any nation or peoples in favor of "understanding" why these nations or peoples choose to commit the most heinous crimes, are themselves without a moral compass and have forfeited all right to condemn anyone.
