28. funny thing is, it would seem that the US public indeed thinks

behaving like judge, jury and executioner doesn't make sense, given the response to possible war on Syria.

Be it in discussions about the US, Russia, or Germany in the eurozone crisis, I keep reminding myself to differentiate between the governments of a country and its people. I don't know when the disconnnect between those two has ever been so great. It's very worthwile to check out the comments on the (conservative quality newspaper) Frankfurter Allgemeine.

I have strong doubts we live in democracies. But I don't doubt that people are waking up.
