Which possessive pronoun? Could you gimme the sentence and highlight the word. I am thinking it is the work "our", but I am not sure. I disagree that it implues culpability, merely that I identify with our government, for good and bad. Hell, I wasn't even born then.
What in this post:
has anything to do with Anglo-Saxons?I never said benevolent interest. But given the times, "Mossadeq's hostility toward all varieties of foreign intervention" was reason enough to replace the regime with our own. We ended up with a compliant regime in our interests for a time.
That others are also interested in happiness and have an aversion to suffering is secondary to the needs of my country. I'm delighted when they are congruent.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
