Like We Really Care

As Great Satan announced her troops engaged in the benign intervention Haitian Invasion would prob be there for a "six-month window ... of intense support," Madame Sec HRC expressed distress about foreign faux pas that dissed Great Satan as she helped out pitiful Haiti in her hour of need:

"I deeply resent those who attack our country, the generosity of our people and the leadership of our president in trying to respond to historically disastrous conditions after the earthquake"

Aside from the Eyetye guy that has dissed events in Haiti, or the previous gossips of frienemies that were worried about the wrong thing, it all points to an incredible fact about Great Satan and American Exceptional Exemptionalism when viewed through jealous foreign eyes.

It also explains why Americans overwhelmingly do not really care what the heck foreign state or non state actors think of Great Satan.

"This inclination to do right has been virtually unique among the nations of the world, and for this reason we have been often misunderstood. How could a country so rich and successful be so unselfish and caring? We must have darker motives, critics say."

"We must be seeking to create an empire, to dominate everyone else, to grab the oil or the trade or whatever else for our own selfish purposes. People from more grasping, less-idealistic societies find it impossible to accept that we honestly believe that giving everyone opportunity is the recipe for abundance and happiness everywhere, not merely in the favored reaches of the United States of America."

Perhaps, instead Great Satan should think about implementing James S Robbins' recent idea:

"Make a useful point by cutting foreign aid going to the countries that are criticizing America's efforts and sending it to Haiti instead."

"Let's see how well some of the ingrates can get by without getting their cut of "Gringo imperialism."
