Invasion? Sorry, humanitarian intervention.

Destruction? No, we’re countering ethnic cleansing and genocide conducted by the Georgians.

Regime change? Well, if Hussein had to go, so must Saakashvili.

The USA had to be taken down a notch and that’s exactly what’s happened. But rather than learning a lesson about hypocrisy, the Americans are even more intent on engaging in American exceptionalism, as Cheney, McCain, Rice, and Bush indicate with their poor arguments.
