For all of my European readers and the others too, I implore you to read this essay, reposted by Mustang over at Social Sense.
Some of you that read it, will certainly not agree with it. But that does not make it any less true. You can parse it, dissect however you want, and even call it an outright lie. But, that will not make any less true, either.
But if you already know and understand the events and principles put forth in this piece, you will find it an excellent review and very poignant commentary.
And if you are not sure or sit on the fence, you might learn something you didn't know before and have a deeper understanding of things that have not made sense,up to this point in your lives.
