I have traveled this world much more extensively than either Obama or Romney, and I still do. I find everywhere, even in areas of conflict and economic difficulty, the vast majority of people are friendly, even kind, and have very similar aspirations, across cultures, to personal development and emotional [fulfillment].
The striking thing about [the] US Presidential “foreign policy” debate, is when it did occasionally discuss foreign policy, the world out there was discussed not as a place of vast potential, but as a deeply disturbing place full of foreigners who are, apparently, all evil except the Israelis, who are perfect. …
The correct attitude to all these foreigners that God so unfortunately and inexplicably placed on this planet, is apparently to maintain incredibly large armed forces, murder people with drones (they were both very enthusiastic on this one), place sanctions on them and declare them “currency manipulators”. The only surprising note was that both agreed that they could not kill everyone in Iran.
But “We can’t just kill our way out of this mess” was spoken with regret, rather than as an affirmation of the possibilities of cooperation instead. What a grim and joyless world view.”
“All the time you were inside of me all you could think about was being inside Iran.”
“Governments have a lot of war with each other because they have benefits but there is no war between the people.”
If only all Americans could see this excellent documentary on Iran.
I’m reblogging this just in case anybody wants to learn more about Iran and the Persian people. Maybe send this to somebody who thinks war is a good idea?
“I think we are the only country with the moral authority sufficient to do that [be allowed to launch preemptive strikes], the only country that doesn’t seek hegemony in the world. I do think… Iran deserves to be annihilated. I think they’re lunatics. I think they’re evil.”
How deliciously absurd. The USA should preemptively “annihilate” countries that we deem “lunatics” and “evil”, because only we have “the moral authority” to do so, since we do not “seek hegemony in the world”.
Tucker Carlson is a fucking idiot.
