Relishing Mindless Conquest

I find it deeply disturbing that the vast majority of Americans have no shame at all that they attacked Viet Nam, Afghanistan, Iraq… unprovoked, slaughtered civilians and plundered. Alexander the Great was mad, sadistic and unbelievably brutal. He is the most revered of all monarchs. Perhaps this relishing mindless conquest is just human nature.
