Rambles about stuff I like.

The US has no credibility when it comes to foreign conflict

Why does the US still have any credibility on the world stage when it comes to foreign affairs? Especially when war is concerned.

I see now that John Kerry, Obama’s new secretary of state (y’know, ’cause the old one got shitcanned for getting American citizens killed and then covering up what really happened so she didn’t get subpoenaed) is saying that the Assad regime in Syria used chemical weapons on its own citizens.

Meanwhile, Assad is saying that he didn’t use chemical weapons.

You know who I think is more trustworthy? Assad.

Remember how the US invaded Iraq because they had weapons of mass destruction? Except that, of course, they didn’t. That’s minus one credibility point for the US.

Remember how the US invaded Vietnam because North Vietnamese patrol boats fired on American ships? Except that, of course, they didn’t. Minus another credibility point for the US.

Remember how George Bush said, after 9/11, that they wouldn’t make a distinction between the terrorists and the countries that harbour them. And then they (allegedly) found Osama Bin Laden hiding out in Pakistan. So naturally the US attacked Pakistan, right? Except, of course, they didn’t.

Remember how the US said they were committed to democracy around the world? Then they assassinated Salvador Allende, Jacobo Arbenz, installed the Shah of Iran and supported various dictators around the globe?

The US has lost all credibility when it comes to conflict around the world. I haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of all the heinous shit the US has done. 

The US should shut the fuck up before they drag us all into WWIII – although I’m sure this is what the military industrial complex wants.
