This blog has pointed out several situations where other countries in the world are schooling us in the ways of democracy.
We have people in the U.S. who exhibit a banana republic mentality, mixed with contempt for traditional American values, who have been spouting off tortuous nonsense on the public airwaves for several years.
One wonders if the war colleges, where they indoctrinate the intellectual warmongers, ever teach the warmongers what it is they are "fightin' to purtek"?
In the next issue of the warmonger textbooks, perhaps MOMCOM could include the example of what happens to murderous thug types in real democracies:
Argentina's former military ruler Reynaldo Bignone has been sentenced to 25 years for human rights abuses committed almost three decades ago ...(BBC News, emphasis added). Wow, they must have good security because that is bold democracy.
Gen Bignone, 82, ordered abductions and torture while second in command of the country's largest torture centre between 1978 and 1979.
That would be like trying Dick Cheney in the year 2030 in the United States (or perhaps Bush II ... whoever was "second in command") for torture.
I guess this case renews the meaning of The Department of Just Us, because only the wee people seem to be punished for real or imagined wrongdoing.
