Reading this article makes me ask the same question that pops up whenever I read about American involvement in other countrys' affairs: who made them the world's policeman? Who gave American the right to judge who could have weapons, who could be at peace and who could be at war.
America was founded on the principles of genocide, theft and murder, and it seems rich for such a nation to have the audacity to try to 'lead' others! I will never understand this notion that no one is evil or corrupt or an enemy UNTIL they are on the side of the US. I could go on forever about the US and its twisted ideals, but I feel too disgusted at this point.
