Sorry, I should have been more clear…
The majority of this argument stems from people interpreting facts differently, based on motive: America attacks country X. America claims it attacked because of reasons A and B, but A and B are almost always incongruous with the benefits that we see America receiving due to such an attack.
It is, for example, difficult to deny that the U.S. involvement in Nicaragua is anything other than a crime against humanity. Much like the U.S. bombing of the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical plant in Sudan. There are numerous historical examples that clearly identify the U.S. priorities in terms of foreign policy. These are the facts and the truth and the interpretation of which you are obviously free to decide upon.
