    Banality and crudeness on display in Washington

    The latest turn in attention in the U.S. in recent days has been somewhat away from imperial pretensions and overreach, sanctions on other countries, threats of attacks on Syria (and Iran) and any other country, including even Venezuela, that fails to bow to U.S. demands, whatever they may be. Long gone are the days (as when George W. Bush launched the so-called “War on Terror” to believing citizens), when the U.S. government could claim to be spreading (militarily, which is an oxymoron) some sort of enlightened “democracy” across various flashpoints and countries, particularly in Asia.
