America The Violent

A brutal and accurate Think Piece from The Black Commentator (the best graphics on the web).
America The Violent, Part II:

Only a society accustomed to war-and predisposed to the use of war and violence-would accept war so quickly.

War and Imperial expansion have been the “central engine” of American economic, social and cultural development.
As a peace-loving people, “it is an article of faith that their wars have been forced upon them by those who would destroy their freedom,” and thus, “Americans tend to believe that by winning wars, they made the world a better, safer, freer place.”
