Re: [ujeni] news
- To address Bill's concern: I think the sum total of the media,
politicians, and attitudes expressed by a lot of citizens do a good job of
advertising that the US is the epitome of a free society. We're the land
of the free, after all. And we have a very successful propaganda
machine. We do not do so well at advertising that we don't always live up
to our grand claims. In that respect, we're probably like every other
country in the world.
I can think of other times when the US has oversold itself. Remember the
bombing of Belgrade? The world heard so much about our surgically precise
military planning and hardware. How could we blame anyone then if they
didn't believe that the bombing of the Chinese embassy was an accident?
