    Here is the trick of the question.

    YOU get to pick, your example of a nation, that is sooooo much better than US.


    And then I will cite it's history, showing that, surprisingly recently, it did just that, which you have claimed that no legitimate government does.


    SO far, you have listed, behaviors such as, "starving, bombing and suppressing the development of other countries".


    I'm not telling you that you have to defend, Nazi Germany or some such bullshit.


    YOU GET TO PICK.

    Name the oh so civilized nation(s) you were imagining, while you were putting America down.

    American citizens don't get to vote on foreign policy or whether or not US troops are sent off to another country or whether or not to drop bombs on them.

    Are you saying things like "starving, bombing and suppressing the development of other countries" are all just fine, and we should do them because everybody does it?

    I was responding to YOUR post which indicated you didn't think those things were so bad.

    Here, i will try to make this simple for you.


    War, in all it's forms, is terrible. We should only start wars, be they formal wars, or more covert struggles, as a last resort.


    That being said, holding AMERICA to one standard of behavior while pretending that other nations never "do what America has done",


    is the act of a dishonest anti-American piece of shit.

    Still you claim what has happened in the past is legit today. It wasn´t legit in the past and it isn´t today.

    Got it. America became so great by acting (mostly) honorable and with integrity, but screw that, we should be just as despicable as the worst country we can find. If anybody else does a dishonorable thing, we should do it too.

    Congratulations. All you proved is that people in shithole countries are dishonest and don't deserve American aid.

    You can sputter ineffectually now.
