The American Way

This is how bizarre our world has become, when even the comic books understand American foreign policy, while the leaders of the country do not get it.

In case you're wondering about this, the folks responsible for the Superman Action comic are having his character renounce his American citizenship. Yes, the symbol of American strength since the 1930's now understands that we're not the Good Guys anymore.

Here's why-- Good Guys do NOT break the law and systemically torture, kill, and falsely imprison innocent people, which is what our government now openly does, in defiance of human rights laws and the laws of our nation. Our leaders have become war criminals, and are openly operating as the Bad Guys.

To the rest of the world, over 6.5 billion of them, we have become the psychotic bully of the planet, stomping on anyone, for any reason. We'll drop a "smart bomb" into a wedding party of innocent people, and make a whole new crop of enemies out of their surviving families and loved ones. Can you blame them? Would you forgive a foreign government that carelessly killed and maimed your family?

For every enemy we kill, more are created. This lunacy had better stop soon. If we don't do something to stop the criminal actions of our leaders, we're headed for destruction.

Truth, Justice, and The American Way.
Superman might still stand for Truth and Justice, but since The American Way now stands for indiscriminate slaughter of innocents, he isn't going to be part of it. What does it say about us as a people when comic book heroes get it, but we don't?
