Think outside the square - Mundine's kernel of truth: A few questions for you to ponder: 1. Which country has been the most warlike in the past 50 years, counted in invasions of other countries, assasinations of foreign leaders it doesn't agree with, and meddling in public affairs. 2. Which country has the least accountability when it comes to transparency over its nuclear arsenal. 3. Which country relies the most on "political donations" (aka bribes) to fuel its "democratic process"? 4. Which country is the most virulent and obtuse when it comes to foisting its "culutre" on the rest of the world? 5. Which country exhibits the greatest gap in its official "morality" and said "culture" and "art"? 6. Which country was responsible for creating the political vacuum in Cambodia filled by Pol Pot and therefore the genocide of 6 million souls (the same number as in the nazi death camps)? 7. Which country currently puts its commercial interests ahead of sane foreign policy? (eg invading Iraq wehich has no WMD whilst millions starve under the autocratic Mugabe regime or takes a hard line on North Korean and Iranian nuclear policy whilst cosying up to the more commercially lucrative nuclear powers of the PRC and India)? 8. Which country has a one-eyed foreign policy on the issue of the Middle East, applying double standards to the state of Isreal as a sop to the limited "thinkers" of right wing, Christian Conservative America who are all twiddling their thumbs waiting for the mythical Armageddon? 9. Which country is the home to the majority of multi-national corporations guilty of sweat-shop exploitation of the two-thirds world? 10 Which country espouses "freedom of speech" whilst enjoying the most hardline stance on sedition under the "Homeland Security" legislation? etc etc etc Was Mundine wrong to say that America bought 9/11 on itself? Does anyone seriously believe they've improved the world climate in the five years since?
