The idea rejected by later Empire builders, leading to two world wars largely brought on by the British Empire’s machinations.

Kerry calling the kettle black. 

The man has no decency, and the whoremedia no professional pride of any kind left, if they ever did.  But the hypocrisy is not new; it’s been an integral part of the American way of governance, especially in foreign policy, for over a century.
