What a freak show the past few days have been. Americans are now swept up in an orgy of righteousness unseen since the post 9/11 years. A massive echo chamber of hyperventilating talking points written by a bunch of rich people whose political interests are threatened and repeated ad nauseam by the media.
It's weird how, in spite of all evidence to the contrary, Americans still choose to view themselves as delicate and innocent. That the odd time someone allegedly fucks with them, it becomes a crisis of unprecedented proportions. It never occurs to Americans that shit like terrorism and political interference happens everywhere in the world and is, in many instances, initiated by their own government. Imagine punching someone in the face and being surprised when they punch back.
Suddenly the tables turn (if you choose to believe the story) and America is reduced to a screaming, raging toddler in a supermarket. What a bunch of pussies. Imagine how flustered these people would be if they actually found themselves trapped in a repressive puppet regime, like those of Pinochet or Suharto. Picture a United States powerfully transformed by a coup initiated by a foreign government, rather than a scenario in which a political dynasty loses a presidential seat to a degenerate businessman.
America's elite class is a bunch of privileged, spoiled dopes. But even dumber are those that embrace their new war with Russia, without question and without profit, a conflict where all the American money will go for the foreseeable future in lieu of the kind of economic redistribution that would actually help most people. This is a stupid fucking country.
