Delusion or denial?

Reader comment on item: Terror & Denial [by Hadayat at LAX]

Submitted by Sam B (Canada), Dec 12, 2004 at 20:16

"The vested interest of the US is usually the vested interest of the world. "

What was the 'rest of the world's opinion on invading Iraq? Missile 'defense'? The humanitarian crises in Rwands, Congo, Sudan? Israeli crimes against Palestinians? The Kyoto protocol? And those are just some of the recent topics.

... For the most part, US interests are against those of the rest of the world's, regardless of stripe. You name them: democratic, authoritarian, industrialised, developing, poor countries... they almost all (for the exception of Israel, ... ) wholeheartedly disagree with the vast majority of the unilateral decision-making that goes by the name of 'US foreign policy'. What little sympathy the rest of the world had after the Sept 2001 incident in New York has long since been spent.
