Great piece Manny. I liken it to America's 'Manifest Destiny ' and the arrogant ignorance toward the indigenous people of North America.

Savages all.

No differentiation between a developed system of laws and culture the Cherokee Nation and the more brutal warrior/horse culture of say ,the Comanche.

All native tribes, lumped into an indistinguishable mass, ready to be dominated and or, eliminated. Whichever was more expeditious. I see very little difference between this and the foreign policies toward the middle east , Arab , Persian , African or Asian tribes.

Pax Americana.

* (I believe you are being generous at 75%. Most Americans can't even find Afghanistan or Vietnam on a world map, let alone identify, cultural or religious distinctions. This is the most ignorant ,so called 'Developed Nation' on the planet.)
