Bashing U.S. on foreign soil

Posted By on Mon, Aug 17, 2009 at 10:40 AM

The basher? That would be Mike Huckabee, wading into the Israeli settlement issue on the side of the far right. Glenn Greenwald writes:

Apparently, insisting that Israel stop occupying and building settlements in land that doesn't belong to it is "telling Jewish people where they should and should not live."  Every country should invoke that standard -- Russia should have responded to American objections to its 2008 invasion of Georgia by insisting that the U.S. has no right to "tell Russians where they should and should not live."  It was terrible how the U.S., opposed to Saddam's 1991 invasion of Kuwait, tried to tell Iraqis where they should and should not live.  And immigration opponents in the U.S. should really stop telling Mexicans where they should and should not live.
