On June   24th the   Chinese cosmonauts had   performed the docking of the space   capsule manually   for the first time   in their space program and returned to Earth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNU1WCy2CVc.

   It was   broadcasted   through the whole world. With one exception- the USA. It is still no news here.   Just today they had shown a training replica of   the Shuttle to be delivered to the museum. But nothing about the   Chinese.   We cannot stand that those   laundry folks      are in space while   we are not.   We cannot stand, we cannot stand, we cannot stand.. so we are offered to get laid    and enjoy the   spiritual Kool-Aid before    July 4th. How   childish, stupid and mean. But that's what we are.

 

I came to this country in the Y1989.   I remember many independent states of that time, the ones which either do not exist now or exist   in a very different way: Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, Egypt    Instead of those countries there are territories now. Instead of nations there is population.   Instead of   a system of governance there is   a   controlled chaos. That's the way we   want   it.

US celebrates the Independence Day.   What is that all   about?   The primary essence of the   US   independence, the whole   point of   the endeavor   is reflected in   the following   sublime statement from the Declaration of Independence:

 

"Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.'

 

"And hold them as we hold the rest of   mankind".   That's the voice of the   nation   at its birth, the true voice of an equal.   The primary    cornerstone of any national independence is equality, the   paramount     standing on your own feet among the   "enemies in war, in peace friends'.   The founding fathers of this country understood it well. Their   modern descendants   had betrayed that   principle with dishonor.

  US never was very good in foreign policy. Foggy Bottom is   a proper name for the State Department;   there was a lot of fog and not much substance. From time to time, especially   during the   transformations, like after the Civil   War or after the WWI there were attempts to   develop at least   a consistent foreign   policy but those attempts   always   succumbed to the   legacy of greed and blatant   aggression. It was as if   new   generations of Americans somehow envied   the previous ones   in their murdering and plundering the world   and   pursued   even   more   on their way. All of that culminated   after the nuclear bombardment of Japan.
