People polled all over the world consider the US as the greatest threat to world peace.
Here in the US deceitful indoctrination starts with the very young "Pledge of Allegiance", saluting the flag then reinforced with propaganda, conjuring of "enemies", Communists, terrorists, fear mongering of immigrants, the triumphalism of war, "we're number one" banality and all the "kool-aid" apparently swallowed by many that prevents them from seeing the truth; their countries sinister machinations to exercise hegemony over all others.
Consciousness of such a reality may be too much to bear for many, most? in the US.
That still doesn't prevent the truth from being evident to others, especially those who have been on the lethal end of US firepower.
We're the greatest all right, sadly the greatest aggressor.
