Have We Learned Nothing?
Yeah, yeah, I know the answer to that, don’t worry. So apparently a revered Shiite shrine has been bombed and in our usual, obliviously generous way, the US has offered to help rebuild it. What??? On what planet do we think that offer would be welcomed? Have we learned nothing over the last 5 years about how we’re viewed in that part of the world? I can’t see this offer being seen as anything more than completely offensive. Am I wrong?
