Poor Aruba

Email Print

The tiny Dutch island has been subjected to the full power of those adjuncts of the US state, FOX and friends, and there is growing resentment. There apparently was a horrific crime, and the missing girl’s mother wants her daughter’s body found, and the guilty punished. Good for her. But there are horrific crimes in Alabama too, and they get no massive press attention. What’s different here is the exercise of power in the cause of distracting the American booboisie from the failing anti-guerilla wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. There is also the contant drumbeat that Aruba (and apparently other places too) need to get with the program, and adopt the US justice system. How dare they be different from the hegemon. How dare they make rssentful TV blabbers learn something. (Link via Drudge.)
