GG090415 "sovereign immunity," really?

April 15, 2009

For some liberals . . . Afghanistan was always the ‘good war’ . . . because it overthrew a hated dictatorship, because it deposed sectarian religious rule, because it liberated women from misogynistic terror, and because it was the proper war of revenge against ‘Al Qaeda’. Of course, these excuses for imperial violence are outrageous and ignorant, hedged by simplistic notions about the sociological potency of overwhelming violence, and rooted in uninterrogated assumptions about America as a force for good in the world. — Read LENIN’S TOMB

    and guess what…Afghanistan is still run by corrupt Kabul politicians and sectarian religious leaders who terrorize women while the Taliban re-group in the mountains.

    USA! USA! USA!
