    That is a wonderful story, and an excellent example of the way in which simply recognizing the shared humanity of our enemies can often be enough to end suspicion, dispel unreasoned hatred and even end wars. Or prevent them from ever starting, if there is a willingness on both sides to forgive and atone for past transgressions which is heartfelt, genuine, and matched by an understanding that war as a means of social policy is basically murder.

    Unless it is in self -defense, of course. But America doesn’t fight those types of wars much any more. Since we profit so mightily through starting them ourselves nowadays, we no longer need wait for someone to actually attack us. Increased quarterly productivity demands we not waste that valuable time, so we now apply ourselves nationally toward a goal of being universally-hated and feared assholes to everyone overseas 24/7, under the guise of saving the world from itself.

    Yes indeed, we’re number one at that, hands-down. That we protest and pretend so hard otherwise, in the face of so much damning evidence, is just another manifestation of American Exceptionalism.
