If the US has 1000 military bases abroad and outspend the next 17 Nations combined on defense, isn’t that proof the US empire, the hegemon, are trying to take over the world, for lack of better terms? That’s what the US would say, or anyone, if any other country were doing it. If you say Communism was trying to take over the world, that’s okay, but if the US does it, you’re a conspiracy theorist. Yet people who say that are only pissing on their own feet because the CIA created that term to circulate in the press to try and discredit people who questioned the assassination of JFK.
The Pentagon calls it, “full-spectrum dominance” if that’s not a call for world domination than I don’t know what is.
Further, if the US use torture techniques copied form the Nazis then how are they a legimate government? If everyone tortures, but only keep it as a secrete, rarley or never, mentioned in the news, then why aren’t we trying to abolish torture, and why are there international laws against it, as well as our own laws?
