I suggest one needs to start calling it out as one sees it, even if people don't want to hear the message or it's considered non-PC. We are subject to unprecedented amounts of propaganda every day and it's hard for busy people to have time to do the research to inform their own opinions. Since I've retired I've had the luxury of reading a lot and catching up and been rather surprised at some of my conclusions. For example IMO the US, through their arming of the Mujahideen (which morphed into Al Qaeda), sowed the seeds for 9/11 but obviously they have never admitted to same. To imply that 9/11 was in anyway self inflicted would get me strung up on Broadway. Similarly, IMO the US (aided by Tony Blair) started the process that created the environment for ISIL to thrive when they invaded Iraq. Equally, I don't like the US fiddling in the Ukraine. Kennedy was lauded for making a stand over the Bay of Pigs but Putin is slated for doing the same in Crimea.
Personally, I consider the US a loose cannon when it come to their foreign policy. Their biggest ally in the Middle East, Saudi, is an appalling country with judicial beheadings, amputations and floggings. Any vestige of morality flies out the window when US self interest is at stake. This just one of the reasons I want a strong Europe. I think the US is very, very dangerous.
