What is it with this country, why does the U.S. so actively engage in this kind of foreign adventurism?
There’s a long history of this throughout Central America – it’s as though the U.S. considers Central America to be a possession, or some kind of suburban “bedroom community”.
At one point or another the U.S. has backed every despot and every corrupt government throughout the entire region – but that’s par for the course and apparently part of “foreign policy”.
For all the talk of terrorists and nations that harbor them the reality is that among the global population the U.S. is seen as THE terrorist nation.
As the middle class declines, infrastructure erodes, wages remain stagnant, and public assistance programs reach record levels the U.S. talks about nation building as it pumps untold billions into other countries and into the pockets of those who can only be referred to as criminals.
Conservatives figuratively flagellate themselves attempting to convince everyone that the more money that wends it’s way into one percenter and corporate coffers the better off everyone will be, while liberals adore the impoverished and disenfranchised seeing them as a political base requiring little more than a few additional “programs” to set things right as they play the same game chasing the buck.
The singular greatest social commentary about the political climate, the political naivete, of this country is that two one percenter clowns lead in the polls…Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
