“It is long time past that one important piece of fantastical rubbish be finally sent on its way: this is the idea that neo-cons maintain some kind of fastidious ethic and theological democratization when it comes to who they’re willing to work with on killing people.” -rdan, March 20, 2008
The US plays the ‘game of houses’ with determination, some skill, and lots of resources as every power has. We as an electorate do like to believe we are also enlightening and freeing others. Sometimes we actually do.
The US trains and funds extremists to send into Iran. But I also remember other places closer to home. And it was not to free people.
