Don't forget to put Dubya Dumbo Bushkunt at the top. The difference is that not one of those on your list set themselves up as the moral guardians of the planet and purveyors of all that is great and good. I think most of them knew they were kunts. Yanks have this delusional idea that they are 'goodies' (they have this absurd 'movie' fixation where they think movies are real, and real life is secondary).
Bush and Blair attacked Iraq because they had intelligence reports advising them that Iraq was harbouring weapons of mass destruction. They have always insisted that they believed the intelligence was accurate and you may think I'm naive but I sincerely think they were telling the truth. Even the thought of a rogue Islamic state like Saddam Hussein's Iraq holding a stockpile of WMD was enough to frighten the shit out of every man,woman, child and black dog in the West. After 9/11, Bush was simply not prepared to take even the slightest risk, (can you blame him??!!) nor was Blair ( who was, if you recall, hardly a neoconservative, rather a "dripping wet, leftist "Labour" Prime Minister of Britain). AS it turned out the intelligence re Iraq's WMD was faulty, but the way I see it, Bush and Blair were placed in a situation where to the very best of their knowledge the intelligence was accurate, and doing nothing was not an option.. On top of this, in the lead up to the Gulf war Iraq was repeatedly in violation of UN resolutions, for refusing to allow
(UN) weapons inspectors into the country to check for the presence of any hidden WMD.
With regard to the issue of moral guardianship of the planet. Totalitarian Marxist-Leninist regimes like Mao's Red China or the USSR were thoroughly immoral (very morally BAD). Like Reagan said, in the 1980's they were "Evil Empires", and they were very determined to export their brand of evil all over the world (NB: after the Cold War ended, this was confirmed for a fact in USSR archives), and like I said, between them they annihilated so many innocents that your head spins just trying to grasp the enormity of the brutality and murderous inhumanity we are talking about. So, I say to you, THANK GOD the West, and in particular America, DID assume the role of moral guardianship for the planet during the Cold War; THANK GOD America did stand up to defend the moral values that underpin Western liberal democracy. THANK GOD America did stand up to wicked communist bullies like Nikita Krushchev and Mao Zedong and say "Don't you DARE fuck with us or ANY of of our allies/friends; if you do, you'll regret it BIG TIME."
Finally, with respect to your view that Americans "think movies are real", Shakespeare was under the same "delusion" In "As You Like It", he wrote:
"All the world's a stage ( i.e. "movie set"), and all the men and women merely players (actors)
How very true.
In conclusion ,let me tell you that "GOODIES" and BADDIES" are very real, girly. And you better believe it, because if you don't; you'll end up in dire straights for sure!
