    This post of yours is interesting. I don't have tabs on the total number of tyrannies deposed by the combination of every nation other than the US. However, I would care to guess that the majority of these tyrannies were placed by the US. This is also true of many of the tyrannies that the US deposes are placed by the same. For instance, the US government, through CIA agents, assisted Saddam with taking over the day to day operations of running Iraq, starting with the 1963 coup overthrowing Qassem. The US has placed a great many tyrannies in power. You have Augusto Pinochet, a number of dictatorships in Central America, the Shah of Iran, The Saud Family, other despots in Kuwait and Indonesia. In the march against communism the US racked up a score of tyrannies. We really have the game cornered. Another note, you pointed out Al Qaeda?s human rights abuses. As it happens they were spawned by the Mujahedeen who was trained by none other than the US in an effort to combat the USSR

Friendship is not about the possession of another, in soul and body. (Illustration)

This Valentine's day, celebrate not love, but the sublime bond of friendship

Friendship is free of the indignities, suffering and drama that characterize romantic love; it doesn't have an expiration date; we rarely suspect it to be a figment of our imagination. But love is what fuels our economy.
