You can't compare situations. I have certainly no beef with our prosperity, but then again Switzerland is prosperous too w/o the dick waving and delusions of grandure.
We had it all figured out during the 50s when we could simply arm the people we liked against the people we didn't and let them fight it out on their turf. It worked in Africa, Latin America, and yes, even Afghanistan during the 80s. The problem is after we toppled the Soviets we drank our own kool-aid into believing America can will capitalism and democracy into being over every corner of the globe. That, coupled with our insatisable material greed brought this about.
We can blow up the world 10,000 times over, that's deterrant enough. Why the fuck are we sitting here playing around and sweating over camel riders in Africa? Don't you think that's enough evidence that maybe we've stuck our hand in the oven too many times?
