Mr. Troxel’s letter (Sunday, July 25) exhibits the kind head-in-the-sand ignorance that seems to typify most Americans. Even if you only watch the FAUX NEWS channel, you can gather that the U.S. is the world’s largest buttinski.
We are currently butting into the internal affairs of half of the Middle East, several Asian and African nations and have interfered in the internal affairs of every one of the nations Mr Troxel listed. I know. As an intelligence operative, I helped. That was back when I was younger and foolish enough to believe that it was my “patriotic duty” to do so. Any American that criticizes other nations for “butting into” American affairs had better take a good look in the mirror.
