      Where does it end, Howard the Hypocrite? Are we going to go to war with China because they are doing everything they can short of genocide to wipe out Uighur culture in northwestern China? Are we going to invade Saudi Arabia to liberate women from Islamic patriarchy? Kuwait? The UAE? Are we going to invade Burma and topple the Buddhist military dictatorship there to save the Rohenga Muslims? I sure don’t hear you bleating about any of those ongoing human rights violations.

      To answer your question directly, America does NOT have the responsibility to unilaterally intervene in another nation in the name of human rights, period. In fact, we didn’t go into Afghanistan in the first place to liberate Afghan women. We went in for revenge after 9/11/2001, and to destroy Al-Qaeda, neither of which have anything to do with your precious human rights.

      So please STFU, Howard.

      Our white “leaders” sure have in for people of color the world over, including here.

      Enough already.

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.

      We lost again.  Get out.  Get over it.
