Well if we are going to use historical data then I suppose one can argue that all races at one time or another have perpetuated some form of genocide. However let me clear up what your position is as it seems to me from your posts. Are you saying that the US is no better a nation (or regime) than that of Taliban Afghanistan or North Korea or The Sudan etc.? Are you saying that it is just as evil (this was I believe the original reason for my involvement in this thread - i.e. the question of evil)? I do not believe the US is perfect by a long shot (my view is not skewed in this regard, heck I am not even an American) BUT RELATIVE to what we see all over the world I do not subscribe to the view that it is as evil as these countries. If that is your view then just like the Philosophy of Religion one can argue either case.
