...but accept their share of the responsibility and teach their children to do better.true man but they some murderous fucks out there its in them..when they got power holy shit and quite a bit always heard about the clintons..kennedeys (the perfect family) letting cubans from here die.
Yes. Humans are a murderous lot.
All that horrible US stuff already listed above, the Tiananmen Square massacre, Pol Pot's killing fields, Hitler's 3rd Reich, the Rape of Nanking.... How about the British Empire? They went around enslaving and mass murdering and giving themselves medals for it. That was only a few hundred years ago, not a few thousand. Look up medieval torture devices on wikipedia that stuff will give you nightmares. The kings and queens who were literally, personally, the state, all had dungeons and people employed as full time torturers.
The church went around burning people (particularly young women) alive as a means of furthering their own ends. The Roman Empire made sport of having people eaten alive by lions. After they had whipped them all their lives, the ancient Egyptians had all their slaves buried alive with them when they died - that was supposed to be an honor...
Want to know why the are no Australian aborigines left in Tasmania? It's quite simple - the European settlers (us!) hunted them all to extinction for sport. The "native" Maori population in New Zealand arrived there in boats about 700 years ago and ATE the original inhabitants. In south America they built huge temples for the ritual sacrifice of children.
No matter where on this earth you are from, or where your people originate you don't have to look very far to find the most horrible brutal heinous acts imaginable. Does this excuse any of it? Most certainly not
. We are supposed to be civilized now, and should know better. We have gotten better, but sadly, as a race we have a long way to go yet.
At least, these days, in some places, the murderers at least have to pretend
they don't do that stuff. America is one of the countries that has been at the forefront of that particular brand of bullshit, and it is a very GOOD brand
. It is the reason we all have the luxury of being surprised and outraged when we hear about such things.
Not very long ago the news that one's countrymen had committed mass-murder in another country would have been cause for cheering and festivities in the streets - anywhere in the world. Now our children grow up believing that this is abhorrent behavior that should be stopped.
It's one of the most important first steps in the history of life on earth.
