It is so head scratching why the USA cannot keep it's nose out of so much in the world even taking in the corporatism of it. Imperialism is a historical thing apart from that corner.  That would get so much more respect if it looked after it's own people a bit better. Now that would be a principle worth playing on.

Good to see you've renounced imperialism, Mr. Howie. Next you'll be acknowledging the atrocities of the BE, if we don't watch out.

let me firstly say Colonel that I am making considerable allowances for the fact that you have an ex-colonial education and that there is a government awareness of that long standing issue.

Secondly empires are a thing of the past  and the Commonwealth is a very  enlightened progress that you lot could not produce at all. That came from Empire days. But you lot cannot accept that and yours is very fly, improper and does not are a damn fig about the countries it subjugates.  You maintain an empire based on very heavy corporate control and your two parties show that too. Time after time you have tried to take places over either militarily or by the money men and where there is  a challenge find a way to intimidate, block or tear apart. As I have also pointed out toy spend over half the world's military bill for the sake of the corporates who run your mess of a country - doesn't matter whether Democrat or Republican the tens of millions of poor and bottom of the pile remain there. Every party here supports the Welfare state and other helps.

Your money men do not supply colonial experts but the countries you dominate are financially and subtly militarily subdued. So instead of trying to do a daft body-swerve and slope into the distant past trying facing up the empirical stuff your country gets up to in today's world. Any place that dares to challenge your imperialism based on money is in for a swipe, blocked or put down. Instead of helping the tens of millions of poor in the land of nonsense you are the No 1 imperial crowd in today's world and little to how in that except the pockets of your corporate controllers.

President Eisenhower was so damn right all those years ago warning you lot but your so damn nationalistic and call it patriotism (groan). A friend of mine when brought up here married a fellow Glaswegian then went to live in California decades ago. She is frustrated and head shakes at what is called a political system. Her son and his wife are emigrating here.  Meanwhile the rest of you will continue to be brained by a rubbish media and an even worse system. Try facing up to your own empire lot.  :hat:

Two torturists facing court.
The NYT article reads like a bad tasting farce to say the least.
In 2003 the USA is invading and bombing a sovereign state in breach with international law.
As a result, hundreds of thousands are loosing their life, damages of hundreds of billions, an entire region pushed into chaos and now we are told that two psychologists may face trials because some people have been tortured after 9/11 2001?

As for prisons abroad, their first goal was to facilitate torture in places where US law doesn't apply.
Those prisons weren't neither commissioned by psychologists nor were those prisons operated by psychologists.
Those two psychologists could serve at best as scapegoats distracting from really responsible people sitting in high ranking positions like the President of the USA, the chief of the CIA and some high ranking generals.

Wonder what the NYT will tell us next?
That an American nurse (sexual abuse of detainees) and an American cook (shit like tasting food for detainees) have been sentenced because of their contribution to torture in those shady prisons abroad?

"Trump doesn't seem to understand what an alliance is, and doesn't seem to consider his ally when he says those things," said Lee Byong-chul, a senior fellow at the Institute for Peace and Cooperation in Seoul, the South Korean capital. "No American president has mentioned a military option so easily, so offhandedly as he has. He unnerves people in South Korea, few of whom want war in Korea."
Fire and Fury, says Trump.
A simple slap will be enough to him to shut up.
Another slap to the North Korean idiot will serve as well.
A matter of attitude.
