There are 500,000 babies dying each year due to the hare-brained American
foreign policies in Iraq and to this day (10 years later) the educated masses
in America cannot see past the hypocrisy of their own Government.  So, I am
wondering if the uneducated masses in India are a greater threat to world's
liberty than the educated and almighty Americans with their power to silence
the world through use of military force?!

You see Mr. Barun, a real libertarian would be worried more about the power
that Americans wield and the tendency to abuse it all over the world rather
than to fear the powerless uneducated masses within India!!
