It's grand that our new 100 million dollar Haitian embassy is useful for something other than a bribe center for Haitian politicals with the goal of securing Haitian oil reserves.

So, let's invade another country under cover of 'humanitarianism.'

We're ruled by gangstas.

Get real. Our country is fueled by oil. We don't have enough of our own. Any nation, if it's going to survive needs to look out for its own interests. Our interests unfortunately include flexing our muscle to ensure that we get what we want. And it's why we've kept our greasy paws on the middle east for over 60 years.

Human nature dude. Any other group of people in the same situation with the same capabilities would do the same. It's how humans have operated for millenia. America's no different than any other successful empire, and eventually it'll fall like all the others.

No use getting bent out of shape over it. Better to accept the truth of it. It is what it is, and we are what we are.

Well, at least you tell the truth. Trouble is that the masses of airheads are clueless, and muddled deep in emotion, an emotion sparked by our Tass media wh*res.
