American belief in its exclusivity: from Obama to McCain

American belief in its exclusivity: from Obama to McCain

American politicians argue fiercely with each other on many issues, but in one they can always agree: America is such an exceptional and distinguished country that there are no equal to it and never will be. And therefore, no matter what it does, for all other nations, America is a model of wisdom and integrity, and this pattern is destined by fate itself to point the rest to the right ways.


In this sense, the President of the United States, who declared in his message on Syria that the American nation is “exceptional” in the spirit of the concept of its “manifest destiny”, is no different from its predecessors. With all the assurances of Obama that he conducts "respectful to others" foreign policy, he is not able to abandon this "sacred cow" of the political class of the United States. Obama does not want to see that this idea is one of the main reasons for instability in the world, when Washington seeks to impose its line on everyone and everywhere. It is American pressure that ultimately causes the majority of modern-day conflicts.

Few printed material has attracted so much attention in America lately, like Vladimir Putin’s article “Russia calls for caution” in The New York Times. Especially its place in which he entered into a controversy with Obama, stating that he considers "very dangerous to lay in people's heads the idea of ​​their exclusivity, whatever the reason."

Representatives of both parties on Capitol Hill, this absolutely fair and correct remark simply infuriated. Their response was thoroughly irrational, and at times obscene. Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boner said he was offended by these words of the Russian president. Democratic senator Bob Menendez, who holds the post of chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, said that when he read the article, he was "almost sick". And the praise of America overcame all bounds of common sense. Marco Rubio, a GOP senator, wrote in the National Review: "History teaches us that strong America is the source of good in the world. No country has freed more people and has done so much to raise the standard of living throughout the world ... like the United States. We remain a beacon of hope for people all over the world. ” Peggy Noonan insisted in the Wall Street Journal that “America is exceptional not because it has long been trying to be the force of good in the world. She is trying to be a force of good because of her exclusivity. "

Senator John McCain, Barack Obama’s rival in the 2008 presidential election of the year, felt that the Russian president’s column was “an insult to the mental abilities of every American.” And then he demonstrated by his own example these same abilities in a reciprocal address to the Russian people. Having lost his way in time, for some reason, McCain considered that the “Truth” is still the main information mouthpiece in Russia. His article, posted on the Internet resource with this title, is exactly in line with the canons of "Pravdist" journalism during the Cold War. McCain does not even try to prove anything, but only denounces, threatens and unexpectedly declares himself a pro-Russian politician. It looks like this: the interests of the Russian people, McCain broadcasts, are to follow the interests of the American, already reached unprecedented heights of civilization. Here is such a "pro-Russian". He sees no independent interests in Russia, since its people, they say, are held captive by one person, Vladimir Putin, whom McCain draws with absolute universal evil. After all, only shaped monsters can doubt American exclusivity. What is, for example, McCain’s passage that “people in Russia no less than the Americans are endowed by our Creator with the inalienable“ rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, ”but“ President Putin and his associates do not believe in these values ​​” . And after all this nonsense is pronounced by a politician known and influential in America! In an interview with CNN, McCain already spoke directly about what really concerns him most: “This whole comedy of mistakes (around Syria) has greatly weakened us. Putin opened the way to the Middle East, where there have been no Russians since 1973. ”

Rare voices, recognizing excessive American self-confidence as a hindrance to soberly and objectively assessing the rapid changes in the world, are drowning in a sea of ​​indignant protests. American elites have little simple exclusivity. They argue that this is “exceptional exceptional”. New York Post columnist Rich Lauri contrasts, for example, the “good” democratic American exclusivity with the “bad” autocratic Russian, calling it a curse. At the same time, he was unaware that the refusal to recognize the equal rights of other countries compared to America is a sign of autocracy. Dana Milbenk, a Washington Post columnist, in a commentary on the article “The Answer of the American People to Putin,” noted that the Russian president’s arguments about the “exclusivity” of Americans do not affect them: “When you question American exclusivity, you will find some support among all of us - Liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, pigeons and hawks. ”

Of the thinking minority, few can be mentioned. So, Jill Dougherty, a correspondent for CNN on international issues, tried in one of the reports to translate the conversation into a more serious plane, noting that she had heard such statements from US citizens: “But who is this Russian president to read the United States notations about international law?” and diplomacy? ”However, in fact, as she points out, Putin wants to convey a simple idea: Russian foreign policy is based on the principle of state sovereignty, and the United States cannot decide for the rest of the world, and such organizations As the United Nations is crucial. “And these thoughts ... really cause a response in some countries. For example, in China, which agrees with Russia that the US should not tell others what to do. This is their argument. And that the United States should not try to overthrow regimes. Now Russian foreign policy attaches great importance to this. ”

American political telecoms writer John Stewart openly laughs at the fact that the American channels see in the development of events in Syria around only a loss of prestige. He, for example, responds as follows to the words of Fox News columnist Stuart Varney: "President Obama led us to a humiliating defeat."

“To defeat ?! Who do we lose ?! Common sense? This round is yours, rational thinking. ”

Analyzing American claims for exclusivity, Stephen M. Walt, a Foreign Policy columnist, a professor at the Department of International Relations at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, points out five main myths well established in this field.

Myth one. In American exclusivity there is something exceptional in itself. But for the great powers to consider themselves "special" - this is the rule. Americans have not invented anything new in this sense.

The second myth. The United States behaves better than other countries.

However, the fact remains: faced with an external threat, American leaders have always done what they considered necessary, without thinking about moral principles. The idea of ​​a unique “nobility” of the United States, perhaps, hurts the pride of Americans, but, alas, does not correspond to reality.

The third myth. The successes of the United States are due to a special "American genius."

America owes its past successes to a successful confluence of historical and geographical circumstances no less than to any unique qualities of a national character. The young country was lucky that the continent is generously endowed with natural resources and a large number of navigable rivers. She was lucky in that it was located at a distance from other great powers, and the indigenous people of North America were at a lower stage of development and did not have immunity against European diseases.

Myth Four. The world is changing for the better mainly because of the United States.

The Americans ascribe to themselves excessive merits in ensuring progress around the world and are not ready to admit their guilt in cases where the United States makes mistakes. Americans do not notice their own flaws, and so much so that it is already dangerous. Remember how the Pentagon staff officers thought that in Baghdad, American troops would be greeted with flowers? In fact, American soldiers are “given” mostly RPG grenades and improvised explosive devices.

The fifth myth. God with us.

Ronald Reagan told fellow citizens that America appeared in the world according to "God's Providence" and once quoted the words of Pope Pius XII: "The Lord gave America the fate of long-suffering humanity." However, Americans would also have to listen to the warning of Abraham Lincoln, who said: “We should be most concerned about the question:“ Are we on God's side? ”It is appropriate to recall the aphorism attributed to Bismarck:“ God helps fools, drunkards and the United States of America ".

“If Americans really want to be an exception to the rule,” writes Stephen M. Walt, “they should start with a much more skeptical look at the very idea of“ American exclusivity. ”

Irrational, not based on anything, belief in its exclusivity prevents Americans from realizing why others can reject US hegemony, why Washington’s policy so often provokes outrage in different parts of the world and is perceived as hypocrisy, whether it is a question of respecting international law or a United States tendency to condemn the actions of others, turning a blind eye to the blunders and flaws of their policies, the vices of their society or the crimes of their servicemen ...

    Something seems to me that Barack Husseinovich did not himself come to the idea of ​​US exclusivity, but became a victim of his own propaganda. Most likely, this thought was hammered into his head in elementary school, and then continued to maintain this confidence throughout his life. If you watch their films, you yourself will come to this conclusion. Victory in the Second World War is their work, Jesus will appear to the people in Manhattan, aliens will appear in Washington to establish contact. I heard that half of the Americans know from geography Mexico, Canada, and Europe, the rest of the country for them almost on another planet.
    In this situation, try to say that an American is equal to a Palestinian, and you will be "pecked". Such beliefs can only be eroded from Americans by war, financial collapse, or other cataclysm.

      The effect of the hundredth monkey - this is the name of the phenomenon that describes the instantaneous spread of learned behavior to the entire population when a critical number of individuals with this skill are reached. Generally, it means the paranormally rapid spread of an idea or ability throughout the population, from a group that has heard of a new idea or has a new ability. The description of this phenomenon is supposed to have been made by Lawrence Blair) and Lyall Watson in the mid-late 1970s, they claimed that the effect was observed by Japanese scientists.
      Unknown scientists studied macaques on the Japanese island of Kojima in 1952 and noticed that some of the monkeys learned to wash sweet potatoes. This new behavior began to gradually spread through the young generation of monkeys in their usual form, through observation and repetition. Further, Watson claims, the researchers noted that when a critical number of monkeys were reached (the so-called "hundredth monkey"), the learned behavior instantly spread to the entire population, as well as to populations of neighboring islands.
      More ..
      The claim that the number of monkeys with skill has suddenly and significantly increased has been exaggerated. The skill began to spread among the younger generation of monkeys who studied with adults; at the same time, adult monkeys who did not know how to wash sweet potato had no such tendency. With the death of old monkeys and the birth of new ones, the proportion of trained people naturally increased. The time interval between observations was sufficient for this process.

      Allegations that behavior suddenly suddenly spread to isolated monkey populations can be disproved, given the fact that at least one monkey swam across the island to another population and spent about four years there. It should also be noted that sweet potatoes were not available to monkeys until human intervention.

    In the twentieth century, there was already one country whose people believed their leader that this country and they were absolutely exceptional. That they, together with their country, have the right to teach the "barbarians" to live like a human being. True, the idea was different and the words corresponded to it, but the meaning is the same - exclusivity. We all know how it ended. I hope that this time it will all end the same. But just before the "exceptional" people realized they were wrong, there was a big war. I don't want her ...

    American so-called exclusivity is an ideological indulgence that allows Americans to commit crimes against other countries and peoples with a "clear" conscience, that is, we can do anything, we are exceptional. Nothing new, any criminal is looking for an excuse for himself, at one time the crusaders robbed and killed, hiding behind the name of God and the idea of ​​freeing the tomb of the Lord.

    She was lucky in that it was located far from other great powers, and the indigenous population of North America was at a lower stage of development and did not have immunity against European diseases.

    This is yes.
    If the United States were closer to Eurasia, all its success would have ended at the time of the attempt to gain independence in 1775, and they would have come out from under England, like China or India, already somewhere in the 20th century.

    America is such an exceptional and outstanding country that it has no equal and never will be. And therefore, no matter what she does, America is an example of wisdom and decency for all other peoples
    it's late to drink "Borjomi" - when the kidneys have failed ... there was no need to give a reason - to one specific "chess player" tongue and now, get it, sign ... the whole world is buzzing about "exclusivity" ... and he said OH-that this is good ... wink

    The United States is undoubtedly an "exceptional" country due to its geographic location, the Yankees do not have strong aggressive neighbors on the continent who can kick their ass.
    The Yankees are protected by the oceans, so they are not afraid of anyone and boldly attack countries that cannot give them a decent response to cowardly and vile attacks.

    The USA and the Yankees have nothing more exceptional.

    Quote: "God helps fools, drunkards and the United States of America." Obama’s statement about America’s exclusivity is already a warning to the nations, that the political elite of this country declared itself to be such gods on earth and has the right to decide the fate of world civilization - individually. If the president of America decides that the leader of any country is a villain, he has the right to remove him by any means. So in the 21 century, America is trying to return earthly civilization to the Stone Age.

    American politicians argue fiercely with each other on many issues, but in one they can always agree: America is such an exceptional and distinguished country that there are no equal to it and never will be. And therefore, no matter what it does, for all other nations, America is a model of wisdom and integrity, and this pattern is destined by fate itself to point the rest to the right ways.

    “It’s very dangerous to lay the idea of ​​their exclusivity in people's heads, no matter what the motivation for it.
    They have long been brainwashed by people. Politicians probably themselves believe what they say. If the amers talk about their exclusivity, then the Wahhabis say that there are only infidels around, and they are the most, the same. Some kind of distant similarity between them.

    If you constantly provoke such speeches of elite, political, American idiots and widely cover them, with the right comments, in the international press, then the United States will very quickly remain without strong allies, and in the future, countries will begin to unite in anti-Yus unions. Picture of the future world: USA, Poland and the Baltic states vs the whole world.

    Each nation is unique in itself, but this does not mean that we need to talk about it from the rostrum of the UN General Assembly. And if the people do not see in themselves something else for pride, except for exclusivity, then this already leads to thoughts.

    I'm not sure if the words about exclusivity can be attributed to the Americans. There is not a large religious section that preaches Judeo-Christian values. You may not believe in such an oxymoron, but it's true. It is more common for Americans to hack off the shoulder without really thinking about the consequences. If we take the Jewish component which is the same "Americans", then of course, these are exceptional, like the Zionists. All media misinformation appearances have nothing to do with Americans. The owner of these SMD, all have dual citizenship for ALL Zionists. Like all Zionists at the head of England. The last offspring was circumcised by a rabbi. This should speak about something .... Rather, there is a deadly fight of some "Israelite tribes" with Ashkinases. And as always by the hands of the goyim of the whole world. P.S. Obama has a mother who is completely white Jewish. So Benya, a kosher Jew. His words about Americans refer to American Jews. That's all . And if you thought that he was talking about American goyim, then you did not understand anything at all. hi

      "And if you thought that he was talking about American goyim, then you did not understand anything at all."

      If I understood you correctly, in the states the Jews are in power and with money, and the goyim have been wheeled in a hefty dose of "opium for the people", a tale about their exclusivity and God's chosenness, so that they are boggled, looking at their reflection in the mirror. Well, what can you do, you should have listened to the "founding fathers"!
      : “No matter where, in the country where Jews settle, regardless of their number, they lower its morality, commercial honesty, isolate themselves and are not amenable to assimilation. If we, through the Constitution, do not exclude them from the United States, then in less than two hundred years they will rush in large numbers, take over, swallow the country and change the form of our government. If you do not exclude them, then in less than two hundred years our descendants will work in the fields, keeping them, while they will rub their hands in their offices. I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude the Jews forever, then your children will curse you in your graves. ” Benjamin Franklin (American scientist and statesman, 1706 - 1790). As he looked into the water, apparently kosher already then got this man.
      And here's another instructive:
      "It is very unfortunate that no country older than this
      "did not humble them like the plague of society and its greatest enemies, the presence of which America was blessed with." George Washington (1st President of the United States, 1732 - 1799, from his book Maxims of Washington)
