America’s “righteous” wars have been launched in the most unrighteous ways, belying the notions of American exceptionalism and goodness. From Boyd D. Cathey at unz.com:
Raskin is not just any ordinary Democratic congressman; he’s an important member of the special House commission which has been busily investigating that dire threat to “our democracy,” the January 6, 2021 “insurrection.” Yes, he’s a far Leftist and Jewish and his message is often just as frenzied and fanatical as that of any member of the Squad. But with one major difference: he’s highly placed and well connected, part of the Democrat establishment, so when he speaks, he speaks with some authority for the party and its leadership.
After praising his fellow Leftists for withdrawing their plea for negotiations to end a cruel and vicious conflict—oddly, is that not what Leftists traditionally claim they do, demand “peace” and an “end to violence”?—and jumping on the jingoist and warmongering bandwagon, a spiraling path which may well end in nuclear holocaust, Raskin uttered his most important and revealing paragraph and the real reasons the US is deeply involved in a faraway conflict in Eastern Europe.
