Kerried Away by jollyjack Kerried Away by jollyjack
I'm constantly astounded by how bat-sh*t crazy politicians actually are.
We all know perfectly well that, after the Iraq debacle, the rest of the world doesn't trust the West. And quite rightly. As far as they're concerned, we're a bunch of bloodthirsty war-mongers that spin lies to justify the invasion of other countries. Some call us "Those who drink blood and oil" (which is so f**king poetic I'm going to have to plagiarise it at some point).
In light of that, you'd think the U.S. might, possibly, wait for U.N. collected evidence (seen by the rest of the world as impartial) to be analysed and presented, before trying to start World War 3?
The British PM was all ready to drag us along, but thankfully The House of Commons gave him a slap and asked "What the hell are you doing?!".
If action is going to be taken in that region, in this political climate, your case must be f**king bullet-proof!
WAIT FOR THE U.N.'s REPORT!!
If all is as claimed, Russia and China will be shamed into silence, and action can be taken without exacerbating tensions in the Middle East....

....and if it's not, the more vocal western politicians can kiss their careers goodbye.

You can always tell when a politician lies, their lips move.

MY theory is that America is having a case of "has been" syndrome. After WW2, we felt, with a fair amount of justification, that we'd played a major part in defeating the evil forces of the world. With the boost to the economy the war brought and the power of the atom in our grip, we felt powerful, a force of good in the world. Since then, we've been sliding downhill, waging increasingly over-the-top wars against increasingly ill-equipped enemies. I think the American government is like a washed-up prize-fighter trying to prove he's still got it.

You're crediting the upper echelons with way too much nobility.
The general population may fight the good fight, but those that put them in harm's way only think War = Business = Money.
Need money? Find a war.
No war? Start one.

But you have to be an unfathomably ignorant jackass to favor them.

I'm sad to say I agree with that. I used to think U.S. Government wasn't COMPLETELY corrupt, that  few bad apples had tainted the public concept of them. Know I realize corruption isn't just rampant, it's pretty much a  job requirement. Anyone smart and noble enough to lead towards good wants nothing to do with politics.

Over here in America, ignorance is considered a virtue by many. Some purposely follow idiotic trends and act like their excrement doesn't smell. And a great number of those who find fault with this either remain silent and loathe in peace or post their displeasure on the Internet and call it quits. Kind of like what I'm doing right now.

As an example, look at the recent events that transpired on social media sites in dealing with Coca Cola's commercial. It has "America the Beautiful" sung in a multitude of languages and a great number of Americans posted hate about Coke, saying things about how, "because we're in 'Murica, this commercial should be in American." I'm paraphrasing of course, but it just goes to show that there are ignorant people all over this country.
