SIRâ€”The United States has rejected $10m offered by Prince Al-Walid of Saudi Arabia towards the Twin Tower Fund. The reason why the United States rejected the money is that the prince negatively commented on Americaâ€™s foreign policy. Although the Talibans should be condemned in the strongest terms for killing innocent people who had nothing to do with their countryâ€™s foreign policy, it is a fact that Americaâ€™s foreign policy of hegemony and favouritism will follow her like a bad smell. America is a giant, there is no debate about that. However, while it is great to have a giantâ€™s strength, it is a tragedy to use it like a giant. The military option the United States and her allies have chosen are going to be a nightmare because Islamic fundamentalism is not exactly a cup of tea. So, while America is busy pontificating about freedom and justice, it will be necessary to re-examine her conscience in the past and honestly assess whether she has practised the freedom and justice she preaches.
Is Americaâ€™s conscience clean?
