Isn't it fascinating, the way our current administration seems able to rationalize on the basis of 'don't do what I do, do what I say'?
If a nation is run by a corrupt dictator and his equally corrupt bunch of cohorts, if it represents a possible nuclear (or WMD) threat to others, shows a blatant disregard for human rights and plunders the resources of its own country and her people, that is a bad, bad thing and has to be rectified ... if necessary, by invading with massive armed force and killing indiscriminately until the balance of power has been altered.
Unless, of course, that country happens to be the good ole U.S. of A ... then it's just business as usual and it's fine because God is on our side.
No wonder Jesus wept!
We are the biggest threat to world peace and the environment currently in existence.
When will we get it together to change this, hum? Before or after we have obliterated life on earth? sigh.
