From Ted Rall.

Arthur Silber has a lengthy article about the myth of Americans as THE Good Guys, a myth which prevents most of us from recognizing the otherwise obvious fact pointed out by Rall in the cartoon above: Everything we accuse other countries of doing we are guilty of a hundred times over.

Silber's article discusses the brutal U.S. occupation of the Philippines at the start of the last century and how the same excuses for American crime and brutality which were used then are being recycled for use now.
