Imperialist junkies
Geoff Simons charts the wars of a country bent on world domination.

The election of Barack Obama represents a seismic shift in US and world politics. The contrast with George Bush, a semi-dictator who ignored the constitution and pretended that he was a war leader in order to rule by diktat, is plain.

But even before Bush there were plenty of lies, torture and invasions.

Obama is trapped in a culture that regards military aggression and subversive operations as normal tactics.
