I would blame profound European policy failures more than American ones…. Sure, they have a role, but not everything is about US politics, nor should we pretend it is. There is enough blame to go around…
Im not saying Europe is 100% innocent but it is the United States that is bombing these countries, starting wars, interfering with their politics and destabilizing the region. All so we can maintain our trillion dollar military industrial complex.
ISIS is using our own weapons and vehicles to kill innocent people. Im ashamed to be American.
American exceptionalism is bullshit. It’s just another excuse for our trillion dollar military empire to bomb more countries. Because we need to spend our tax dollars and our lives to impose our values on other countries. We need to rig other countries’ elections while our own democracy and republic is dysfunctional.
Thomas Jefferson is dead. All we have left are Bush, Obama, Hillary and Trump.
We need to be exceptional, but at the same time we need be a humble giant too.
