Since taking office, Obama waged war on Islam. Bush did before him. Ravaging one country after another is policy. Millions died. Millions more suffer horrendously. Human misery never is taken into account. Grief isn't in America's vocabulary.

Obama outrageously claimed America "has not and will not seek to dictate the outcome of democratic transitions abroad. (It's) the obligation of all leaders in all countries to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism."

Washington deplores democracy. It won't tolerate it at home or abroad. No nation in world history committed more violent extremism than America. Countless millions of corpses attest to its record. Viciousness defines its agenda. It long predated Obama's term in office.

Its unparalleled and unconscionable. Obama continues America's sordid tradition. He urged remembering that "Muslims have suffered  the most at the hands of extremism." He omitted explaining who bears most responsibility.

America's culture is violent. Its roots are longstanding. It's reflected worldwide and at home. Among all Western nations, it has by far the highest homicide rate. It has a passion for owning guns and using them.

Violent films are some of its most popular. Similar video games crowd out simpler, more innocent street play of earlier generations. Its society isn't called a rape culture for nothing. Women experience extreme violence. Usually it's committed by a husband, another relative, or someone they know.

Major media largely suppress it. Child and elder abuse are largely ignored. Imperial wars are called liberating ones. Peace, tranquility and safety are illusions.

Foreign wars, homeland repression, and domestic violence crowd them out. It begs the question. What kind of country glorifies mass killing, assaults and abuse? Why is pacifism considered sissy and unpatriotic?

What gives America the right to claim exceptionalism and moral superiority? How can it call itself indispensable? No nation anywhere matches its deplorable record.
