In the Ukraine, for instance … where Olympic grade brutality is on display.
In Syria…where gassing, shelling, and starving citizens is government as usual.
And while America chides Putin for gay-hate; Africans try to rape people straight without our notice?
Venezuela is igniting, and we don’t care?
And everyone in those horrible places sooner or later, askes “Where are the Americans?” Even here in America, people who do read the news ask how we can stand by, hands in pockets. We got rather used to being a “world cop” somehow, but the truth is we cannot afford it any more; we spent too much on Iraq and Afghanistan.
So, before everyone screams about Obama not caring about America’s reputation or suffering abroad? Just remember who left him an intolerable inheritance of not one, but TWO messy wars that had virtually NOTHING to do with America’s well-being. We have no more money and not enough military forces (without a draft) to prosecute any more long wars. So all the right-wing shitheads blithering about moral superiority? Have a nice stiff shot of shut-the-fuck-up!
