"America's policy in the Middle East ignores basic facts"
October 24, 2007
The more "democratic" another nation is, after all, the closer the rich and the powerful can work together, the greater the pickings and the booty available, and the less controls there are on their actions. The rich can grow richer and the poor can grow poorer because, after all, the rich think, it's the survival of the fittest.
American presidents can be a very bloodthirsty lot, as well as terrific liars when it comes to getting their way, while they criticize other world leaders who commit similar crimes. They have to account for their actions, or their war crimes, no matter how they may try to justify them.
