I will say this one last time
The sense of entitlement, exceptionalism and sense privilege contained within a perversion of the American Dream has reached its logical conclusion.
Reading this story - another version of the MSF Kunduz war crime:
The US military says it carried out a deadly air strike on an al-Qaeda meeting in northern Syria and will investigate reports that more than 40 [56 recent report] civilians were killed when a mosque was struck in a raid in the same area.
Jets struck the village of Al Jina, in Aleppo province, on Thursday at the time of evening prayer when the mosque was full of worshippers, with local activists saying up to 300 people were inside at the time of the attack.
The actual probable target:
"The US military is saying that they conducted an air strike in Idlib province and that this air strike was not targeting a mosque but a meeting of al-Qaeda members. They are saying that the confusion might be because the meeting was held about 15 metres away from a mosque but the US military is saying that the mosque is still standing.
The excuse that will be used by one and all [bar a few]:
"Even if we did and I am not saying we did, we didn't mean to"
Collateral damage, I feel like vomiting every time I write those words combined.
Whenever anyone else does the same, we become the most devout of god's servants.
Of course we meant it:
We are at war with a country that none of our representatives in congress can even be bothered debating or actually authorizing for that matter, just use an outdated AUMF and bomb.
We are at war with groups of "terrorists" we by and large created by our recent and historical actions in the region. These same terrorists are often funded and supplied by our supposed allies in the region.
The timing, we know the hours of worship.
We are the good guys, we didn't mean it! Move on, look forward.
We allow the rich and the powerful to asset strip our own country without hindrance. Hell many will even fight and die for their wars overseas. This is empire building. Geopolitics nothing more, nothing less. That people die and starve by their hundreds of thousands, that millions lose their homes and countries as a consequence, this is our right, we are the good ones.
Then they fling the absurd line of "why do they hate us" once "they" have lost everything.
I use "we" because in the end some responsibility trickles down to those that voted or not and saying "not our president" is not a coverall excuse based on party allegiance. Both parties are completely responsible for the current situation and past historical decisions. I noticed how compliant many democrats became as soon it was "their" President leading the maiming and murderous wars.
We didn't mean it. He's not our President. If only you had voted for "our" Imperialist Kissinger loving choice instead. If you don't agree with us, you are either Un-American or the currently popular Russian!!!.
Now going back to my first line:
The sense of entitlement, exceptionalism and sense privilege contained within a perversion of the American Dream has reached it's logical conclusion.
Donald Trump is that logical conclusion, all rolled into one odious ball. He is the perfect President to represent what America has become and that has nothing at all to do with Russia!!!. A spoilt rich brat in charge of a brat of a country, perfect.
When people in other countries ask "how can Americans be so stupid" when they elect yet another spoilt brat, they haven't been following the plot is my opinion, we have become/are a nation of brats. Just watch our spittle flecked excuses for debates, watch our infotainment programmes [as if you had a choice, our propaganda is everywhere]. We will proudly sell our Oligarchy as a democracy and desperately try to "win" the next elections so that we can gerrymander to our side of the duopoly's advantage. What difference will this make to you foreigners? Not one iota of real change.
The US has not grown to being the most powerful Empire and sole superpower on earth by hazard. It has taken the full concentration of the Oligarchs duopoly decades to get to this point. Vote for either, then you are part of the problem. The cost in blood and misery of building this empire? Not to be discussed, we are the good guys. God bless America.
The end of an Empire is always extremely messy and when one of this size fails the tragedy will be truly global. The driving factor for this tragedy, Global Warming/Climate Change.
