Into the World in Search of Monsters…

What did Russia do that America has not done?

Election rigging or attempted election rigging? We have done it and do it still.

Influence peddling? We have done it and do it still.

Cyber warfare? We do it. Europeans do it. China does it.

Invading and annexing? We have done it. We do it. We will continue to do it.

Exactly what sins have the Russkies committed that the US and our CIA, NSA and Military not also committed.

I find it odd that Americans believe that the Russians are evil when they are doing nothing different from us.

Are we evil with our actions that are exactly the same as Russia’s actions?

Are we somehow the great and good nation whilst others are evil? US Foreign Policy has sowed chaos around the planet since World War II.

We have supported the most evil despots in history. We actually gave support to the Khmer Rouge while they were murdering millions as a way of poking at the Vietnamese. We weren’t going to accomplish anything with that bit of hijinx but we did it anyway. Those actions allowed the Khmer Rouge to stay in power and murder many more Cambodians who might otherwise have survived.

Americans love to look beyond our borders and conjure monsters whilst ignoring the monstrous actions of the officials whom they allow to run rampant committing terrifying atrocities around the globe in the name of Freedom and Democracy.

If Putin is evil. If the Russians are evil. So are Americans. So was Obama and Bush. So too then are we all.

You don’t trust them. Why should they trust us?
