Review

All the mistakes in your arguments, besides your ignorance of history ( latin american instability was mostly created by american interference, Iraq was created by Colonial order, Japan and Germany were coherent self determined states and germany was a democracy in the 20s: Weimar Republic, frankly it bores me to go over this stuff ad nauseam, read a history of Europe and the world not written by an American, and see if you can spot the differences), stem from one idea. That what happens, history, morality, pain, suffering, death, only matters if it affects Americans or at a stretch Europeans. Clearly you could say that the fate of Americans is the only important thing in the world, but then you would be an evil fascist, a title Americans have never desired. If your argument about the strategic importance of oil is taken to its logical conclusion, then America should invade the whole Middle East and set up a series of puppet governments (not so far from actuality). I think that this is one of the ideas that antiwar people reject. We really do not want to return to the days of The British Empire. You see non- white people do hae some other value besides what they can supply us with.
