Exceptionally Imperfect Empire

FrostedLeaves9_1229
“One of the strengths that makes America exceptional is our willingness to openly confront our past, face our imperfections, make changes and do better.”
Barack Obama (from official statement about the torture report)

If the word exceptional continues to be used as a standard element in the top talkers talks, I suspect we will soon be seeing it on dollar bills: In exceptionality we trust. BO now tells us that this exceptional nation has had imperfections in the past.

The devastation of Vietnam and the three million plus murders was an imperfection?
The devastation of Iraq and the one million plus murders was an imperfection?
The murders in Panama, Indonesia, Detroit, Cambodia, Laos, Nicaragua, Panama, Afghanistan, Philippines, Libya, Syria, etc. were imperfections?
The drone-killed women and children in Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen were imperfections?
Mass torture for decades, an imperfection?
Cops shooting unarmed kids, an imperfection?
Taking from the struggling multitudes to give to a handful of obnoxiously wealthy, an imperfection?
… and so on…

I’m beginning to understand what is meant by American exceptionality.

    Exceptionally dangerous, more like it; cruel and chillingly contrary to the “freedom & democracy” rhetoric perpetuated by their complicit MSM portraying America as a global cop with its super power bullying the world into submission albeit via use of their “imperfections” that you’ve astutely pointed out, of course.
