Western Condescension

The whole Ash episode makes me wonder about Western Condescension to anything non-Western. I think that's what bugs the rest of the world about the Um-ericans. I remember having dinner with some family friends and there was an American couple there. During casual conversation, they happened to mention about having heard of the Nuclear tests in India and Pakistan, back in '98, and how they watched with 'concern', over developments in the region.

While the whole conversation might have been innocent, I couldn't help but think, that this 'concern' was coming from the country that had performed the maximum number of nuclear tests, and also, the only country that had ever - used the weapon. yeah....I just realized I don't have much of a point. But that's rant of the day. :p
