The assumption here is that Oliver Stone is presenting verifiable

That the Third World (an invented word of the Left) is deserving
of deep respect, and is presumed blameless in all things, as well.
I notice the avoidance of blaming Islamists for jihad actions in
the world, or do you feel we should have sued the Afghan
government in the Hague, rather then invade? Secondly, in
Afghanistan, should we have allowed the Soviets to remain
unchallenged during their involvement there? Another element of
the neo-Marxist is to avoid speaking to Soviet actions in the
world that was.
It just depends what we want to do. If we want to try to be the last
empire on Earth, then we should continue lying, cheating, and bombing
the most territories that we can into submission and hold on to it as
long as we can. If we do that, the current trend of degradation and
corruption will likely be amplified and we will go the way of all
failed civilizations. If we took another route and rolled back the
empire, then we would have a lot of intense social dislocation and
readjustment but ultimately maybe have a chance of joining the rest of
the world as an equal partner nation.
If you know of anything that Stone is presenting that is false I would
be interested in hearing what that is. While he is obviously
presenting his narrative of what happened, he makes no secret of it. I
don't think that any of the events he depicts are in dispute. I will
say that he de-emphasizes the transgressions which do not support his
narrative, but it is ridiculous to say that these Neolithic-hut
dwelling people did something to deserve being invaded and
destabilized by American black ops.
What about all of the other possible theories of history? What
makes Stone's theory any more credible than my own? Is it because he is
famous? Famous people are well known to be just as wrong as any one else.
