“No nation has the right to simply grab land from another nation.” — Vice President Joe Biden
Except if the nation having the land grabbed from it is Serbia or some other nation whose government the US ruling elite doesn’t like. Then it’s perfectly fine to grab land from other nations.
Because imperialism is only okay when we do it.
Along similar lines, egging on demonstrators to storm and occupy public buildings is also only OK when we do it. If we do it, it’s promoting democracy. If someone else does it, it’s instigating a coup.
Again, because imperialism is only OK when we do it.
If imperialists didn’t have double standards, they would have absolutely no standards at all.
