America blind to hypocrisy of its own moralising

US SECRETARY of State John Kerry has criticised the Russian movement of troops into the Crimean region of Ukraine as breaching international law.

Is he representing the same United States government that daily sends drones over Pakistan?

That has had occupying troops in Afghanistan? That had occupying troops in Iraq for a decade? That assisted France and the UK with military logistics to invade Libya?

That still retains military bases in Germany and Japan 60 years after the end of the Second World War? I only ask.
