When will the United states free itself from the Moral Policeman Mindset (MPM) and stop warning and advising other nations what they should and should not be doing?
This warning to Syria is appropriate and needed, but why doesn’t it come from China, India, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Australia, or better still, from the United Nations?
Why should the U.S. assume it is the only guardian of international morality and peace?
Its MPM often strikes others as a Meddling Power Maniac.
Don’t the U.S. Embassies all over the world relay this image of the U.S. to Washington and urge the President and other spokespeople to keep their mouths shut when it comes to the internal affairs of other countries?
Then again, if China threatens to use biological weapons against its own people will the U.S. preach to or warn China? And to what effect?
