I think the problem is is that mentality of "We're America!!!". We think we can do whatever we want...we can commit war crimes and feel we don't have to answer to anyone. Of course if another country does that then we run crying to the UN. Or we just invade. We're a bully nation that takes what we want with no regard for the people that are trampled under our well trained feet.
My point is...we are NOT the "good guys". Despite what our ads say.
“The line between good and evil does not lie between “us” and “them,” between the West and the rest, between Left and Right, between rich and poor. That fateful line runs down the middle of each of us, every human society, every individual.”
