Washington’s Brazen Hypocrisy

John Glaser, February 25, 2013

Over at the Lew Rockwell blog, Michael Rozeff makes a fine point on Washington’s skyrocketing hypocrisy:

Obama supports a UN treaty on what a US official terms “illicit arms trafficking and proliferation“. At the same time, the US and ally Saudi Arabia are sending heavier arms into Syria.

How could the government be so brazenly hypocritical? you might ask. George Orwell explains the logic of nationalism:

Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them, and there is almost no kind of outrage — torture, the use of hostages, forced labor, mass deportations, imprisonment without trial, forgery, assassination, the bombing of civilians — which does not change its moral color when it is committed by “our” side.
