Penalizing American Torturers
Washington long has placed sanctions on other governments and officials of other governments. Now Russia is striking back. Reports the Moscow Times:
Of course, the Russians are play-acting. And the authoritarian Russian government is not one to complain of human rights.
Nevertheless, as U.S. dominance continues to fade, Americans are likely to find themselves subject to more of the policies which their government long has practiced abroad. If that happens, U.S. citizens may come to better understand the problem of blowback, and the ill consequences of promiscuous and foolish foreign intervention.
