At a time when the US is operating long term jails for the non-guilty on land taken, at gun point, from the Cubans, and regularly engaging in wars of aggression, the advice offered here by Mr. Cohen qualifies as rank hypocrisy.

The “self-proclaimed” international law is an invention of the European West and the USG hasn’t been much of a “law abiding citizen” of international law. Ask the Hawaiians, the Filipinos, the Haitians, any Central American, the Vietnamese, the Cambodians, the Laotians, and on, and on, and on…

Ask Huntington.

The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World OrderThe Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order by Samuel P. Huntington

“The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion […] but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.”
“In the emerging world of ethnic conflict and civilizational clash, Western belief in the universality of Western culture suffers three problems: it is false; it is immoral; and it is dangerous.”
― Samuel P. Huntington, The Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order
