There is evil in the world. There are those who want to take what others have, fanatics bent on eradicating modernity and Liberal democracy, power hungry maniacs with genocidal intentions
Thank you! Yes! I couldn't have said with better words myself the reason that America must be restrained. Was America a force for good when it attacked Mexico? Spain? Germany? Germany? Korea? Viet Nam? Afghanistan? Iraq? Libya? Syria? Yemen? How long will you go on kidding yourself?
America is a sick country, always has been. From the good old days when we importing Africans as slaves and murdering Native Americans so we could steal their land; to our nefarious role in overthrowing democratic governments in South America and Iran and replacing them with horrible dictators; to our imperialist adventures in Korea and Vietnam to the unneeded and uncalled for invasion if Iraq, which has destabilized the entire Middle East - we've shown the world that we are indeed exceptional we've actually accomplished what Napoleon and Hitler only dreamed of - setting up a nationalist empire that dominates much of the globe.
The faux "Pax Americana" brought us unprovoked wars, illegal coups, regime changes, shock and awe, ultra-right wing or jihadi proxy armies, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, agent orange, CIA backed mujahideen, death squads, torture, assassinations, extraordinary renditions, black sites, Guantanamo, drone wars, big brother and the surveillance state, etc. Countries that don't waste their resources playing world cop are able to afford social protections for their citizens and wind up with more prosperous, secure, and successful societies. For example - Canada, Norway, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Switzerland.
