ethnocentric us us us

So why is it any time another country gets bombed or attacked, the United States automatically avers that it was to target Americans? Are there times this is true? I am sure it does happen (especially since we do not really have that many friends in the World). But, come on, it is not always about us.

It's almost like saying that a bomber was targeting dairy cows if he blew up a grocery store. ("Well, milk and steak are frequently on the shelves, moo. So they must want us cows dead!....moo.")

Heck, the U.S. is almost as ethnocentric as one of my exes is egocentric.....okay, maybe not that bad.

Thanks for reading my early morning mini-rant. I needed that. Now go relax and listen to some Pavarotti.
