Obama called the U.S. ‘the one indispensable nation’. What a crock of shit that is. That’s on a par with the morons who say ‘we’re the greatest nation on Earth’. No, we’re not, not by any measure other than military power. In virtually everything else we’re lagging behind most nations in so-called Western civilization. Health care, education, infrastructure. We vote the stupidest of people into public office, expecting them to do miraculous things, when too many of them can’t even tie their shoelaces. Interesting how many of those are Republicans. Wannabe fascists.
The fucking idiots who voted for Trump are members of the know-nothing clan who want to be babied because oh my oh dear life just isn’t fair. They expect Trump to kiss their widdle foreheads and make everything better, and in return they kiss Trump’s fat, ignorant ass. And they’ll turn around and blather about being independent individuals blah blah blah. Assholes to a man. And woman.
Indispensable nation? Hardly. We’re a curse on the earth because we’re a stupid people, an arrogant people, an ignorant people. And cruel. The United States is responsible for far more deaths of innocents than any number of terrorists. We have destroyed countries, made homeless and stateless millions, slaughtered untold numbers of innocents, while the terrorists have blown up marketplaces and buildings and killed what… thousands? Terrorists breed in the places the United States has violated. Terrorists breed in the policies the United States has forced down the throats of small nations. Where the United States sets foot, terrorists rise up from our bootprints. The sound of American drones and jets raises terrorists from the rocket-heated air and the blasted craters left behind, from the body parts of children blasted to red paste and white bone by our missiles and bombs.
But Americans don’t know much about any of that. Ask them what they know about politics and they’ll tell you all about ‘Kardashian’.
Yeah, we’re the indispensable nation all right, just like in fairy tales designed to scare children the bogeyman is an indispensable character.
