"Stretching all the way back to the dawn of the American empire, when Teddy Roosevelt and his crew of 'progressive' imperialists planted Old Glory on battlefields from Cuba to the Philippines, the pattern of US overseas intervention has repeated itself down through the years. We 'liberate' a foreign people from the bonds of what we regard as tyranny, only to find that the presumed beneficiaries of this policy are lacking in gratitude -- and blame us -- us! -- for their subsequent problems. Although, you’ll note, that doesn’t stop them from seeking aid and assistance from the US Treasury: in fact, it encourages them." (04/13/11)
