Al Jazeera Editorial: Joe Biden’s America is a dangerous myth

By posting this I'm not attempting to tell people to vote for that knucklehead Trump. That said, I found this editorial interesting in terms of how one part of the world views the US and its policies regardless of who is in the White House. I'm guessing he is not alone on this viewpoint.

[www.aljazeera.com]

"The moral and righteous America Biden is promising to bring back never existed in the first place."

&

"The America that, he (Joe Biden) so proudly claims, provided “moral leadership” to the world.

The problem is, such an America just does not exist.

In fact, it never did – not under Clinton, Bush or Obama.

And America has never enjoyed any discernible “credibility”."

D & C

Let's just say we'd have more credibility without cheeto in the big boy chair.

I disagree with the writer calling Biden a "supposedly progressive" candidate. Nobody thinks Biden is progressive except Republicans. He's quite the centrist, which is probably why America seems to be anxious to get him in the White House and hopefully have four years of relative quiet. I read Biden's autobiography and he's in fact more conservative than I realized (although I do believe he is willing to listen to the left and attempt to incorporate their concepts into his administration, albeit in a milder version). He also believes in his mythical America -- which I am sure is based on WWII and the New Deal, not recent events -- just as the right believes in their own mythical America where everyone was happy to have the foot of the white man on their head.

Not able to go into detail, but I do wonder - Why is it 'dangerous'? Cannot be worse than the Other Option?

It's not dangerous except to the notion that America is The Great Satan… Why if Joe manages to turn that one around a little in the next four years. Who gains? Who loses?

Tafi Mhaka is "whatabout'in," "both-siding," and being about as cynical as you can be. I'm so sick of people like this guy.

I bet his kids can't play in the park without him degrading the stolen sand and the blood steel that made the swing set. He'd be right. But sofuckingwhat?

Purity + Righteousness = Destruction.

I'm not sure any country looks to us for moral leadership. Most of them would like a steadier hand at the U.S. tiller.

This guy has no apparent qualifications to give an opinion about anything. It's Al Jazeera (Qatar) yanking your chain.

Al Jazeera Media Network (AJMN) is a Qatari state-owned media conglomerate headquartered in Doha, Qatar. It is the parent company of Al Jazeera and its related networks. The chairman is Sheikh Hamad bin Thamer Al Thani, a member of the ruling family of Qatar, the House of Thani.

For most reporting I respect Al Jazeera more than FAUX. I do agree that the US has little credibility based on who they have backed in the last 60 years, but none of the current top 20 economies in the world is squeaky clean in every aspect.

This is an opinion piece, no pretense of reporting.

Also, a comparison with Fox is non-applicable in most false facts cases.

It's an unsurprising and candid view from outside the sphere of American politics.

Lots of truth, sure, but not relevant to the campaigns, per se.
