So the US bends over backwards to prove that its Israel's best friend in the whole world while, at the same time, never fails to howl about how shamefully Islamic countries treat their women.

I'm going to give it a  :horrormirth: :horrormirth: :horrormirth: out of 5.

Israel isn't our friend.  It's more like an abusive spouse.  Demands everything, gives NOTHING.

I despise Israel and our support of it. It's shameful and was shameful from inception. Of course, everything the West has done in Africa and the Middle East for centuries has been shameful.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

And Asia.  Mark Twain had something to say about the vile behavior of our "Missionaries" during the Boxer Rebellion in China.

Yeah, actually, come to think of it, everything the West has done everywhere has been pretty fucking nightmarishly awful. I think maybe Christianity is defective.

I don't think it's anything most other nations wouldn't have done, at the same time.  If China's 12th century industrial revolution had taken off, we'd be sitting around today complaining about how fucked in the head Mongols were.  And so on and so forth.

Twain's essay (above) goes into that in great detail.

I don't know... I've wondered about it, but I really just have no idea what to make of it. Of course, I haven't read Jared Diamond yet, so who knows, maybe he does a perfectly good job of explaining it.
