A confrontation that will accomplish what? Not a damn thing. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see the United States government held accountable for the international laws it breaks with ease. The USA is a rogue nation led by flat out murderers, people guilty of war crimes on a grand scale. It respects no international law, no federal law, no law at all. It doesn't meet the standards it inflicts on others and the other nations have not the power or the will to force it to.
Can you imagine the other countries banding together – or at least a powerful few – to force a “regime change” here, like this nation decided it had the right to do to Iraq? That bizarre preemptive strike war is not just against international law, but it is also a crime against humanity, a massive human rights violation in progress. Yet, never is this nation held accountable in any meaningful way, not for spying on allies, not for the wholesale slaughter of innocents, of women and children. What a disgrace.
