America celebrates its 235 years as an independent country today, 235 years since they fought a bloody war against their British masters to ensure they were no longer just a colony but an autonomous self determinant state.
The irony of course is since their inception they have waged war and occupied vast swathes of the world, without thinking twice that perhaps the countries that fight back against the yankee’s do so for the same reasons the americans fought the british – to live free from a foreign power dictating terms to them.
America’s export of its bankrupt culture has led to it’s former master – now minion –
Great Britain putting up a statue of the devil himself, Ronald Wilson Reagan. The media have of course been giving him the sole credit for ending the cold war, no mention of an archaic USSR crumbling in on top of itself.
Reagan had alzheimer’s while in office which allowed him to be manipulated by the “sleeper cell neo-cons” of Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and Donald Rumsfeld.
Decades later the very same triumvirate with Dick Cheney added, would control the other Manchurian Candidate that was supposedly running the show – the blundering buffoon that was known as George “Dubya” Bush.
While everyone is forthcoming with gushing praise of the devil, The Akh remembers him as the father of Crack and as a supporter of Apartheid.
As a man who launched the “war on drugs”….let me know how that one worked out?
And for launching acts of war in Lebanon, Grenada, Libya, El Salvador, Nicaragua, while using the Afghans to fight the Russians and getting Iraq’s american agent, Saddam Hussein to go to war with Iran.
Quite a list of achievements.
God bless America….and damn the rest of the world.
