As we round up the Slobodan Milosevics of the world and haul them off to the Hague to stand trial for war crimes, it’s helpful to reflect on our own past misdeeds as a nation (I’m speaking to Americans here, my foreign friends). I’m not saying that we shouldn’t try current war criminals for their crimes against humanity, but I am saying that in the future, we ought to consider what we’ve had other people arrested for when planning our own foreign policy. Perhaps I’m naive, but I think that our current, media-saturated culture would prevent our government from blowing up millions of people in Southeast Asia and keeping Americans in the dark about it today.
