Perspective please

Why does the United States think bombing is the only solution to the problems in the world?

Is there now more freedom and democracy in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya since the bombing? How can supporting “blood-thirsty jihadists” (as George Galloway refers to the Syrian rebels) be helping to safeguard our liberties?

Why is it the United States is giving ultimatums to other countries regarding their use of chemical weapons when the United States has used chemical weapons recently in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya?

Who is Obama to take the moral high ground when he oversees the deaths of hundreds of innocent civilians each year from drone strikes? And how is it that all this should take place without proper perspective from the mainstream media who seem to have forgotten past disasters and whose only purpose seems to be to legitimise the crimes of the wealthy and powerful in the world?
