One of the most perverse things about America is that no matter how many countries the USA bombs, invades, exploits, threatens, regime changes, or colonizes around the globe, many Americans still cling to the delusion that their country is a “force for good” in the world.
As most people know, Arizona recently passed the immigration law SB 1070 that effectively legalizes the racial profiling of illegal immigrants in the state. In particular, the law mandates that immigrants carry identity papers authorizing their immigration status and requires police officers to detain people they suspect of being illegally in the country, among other things.
Not to be outdone, Barack Obama has ordered 12oo National Guard troops to the US-Mexico border, quadrupling the number of US troops in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. Despite criticizing Arizona’s law as unfair, Obama himself is militarizing the border with this new troop deployment.
But what is most interesting is the widespread support that the Arizona legislation enjoys among the freedom-loving American people.
