    I've met American exceptionalists like you before.

    "We had to destroy the village in order to save it".

    You would have had a blast in Vietnam.

    We don't have the moral right to demand that people stop infanticide

    If you think that US military-engineered infanticide in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iraq is justified because of your "noble intentions", we don't have anything to talk about.

      I'm not an American exceptionalist; I actively opposed Viet Nam, and over a dozen other US military operations since then. I oppose every war we're in right now, and I'm comfortable going out on a limb and saying that I oppose the next ones, too.

      If you think that military force is the only way to influence the events in another nation - if you discount the humane efficiency of trade incentives, targeted diplomacy, and non-violent action - then indeed, we don't have anything to talk about.
