    Seems to be a rather accurate depiction of our mental geography, I'm sorry to say.

    Actually, scratch that - I don't think Americans know enough of our own history to draw the parallels between Vietnam - Cambodia and Afghanistan - Pakistan. Clearly that one is an inside joke for non-Americans. :P

    Mocking Americans for, say, believing in UFOs, is not constructive. Also it is no surprise that allegiance to US interests against rival imperialist powers such as Iran, Venezuela, Brazil, and Bolivia, just as an Iranian proletariat may be easily sold a mass-manufactured anti-American and pro-Iranian ideology. This T-shirt is an elitist joke that doesn't help in spreading clear messages to smash false consciousness and rally the international class struggle. Rather it enforces anti-Americanism which is counter-productive.

    <i>rival imperialist powers such as Iran, Venezuela, Brazil, and Bolivia</i>
    Are you really saying that those countries are imperialist?

    "imperialism is not the creation of one or any group of states, but is the product of a particular stage of ripeness in the world development of capital … and from which no nation can hold aloof at will" - Luxemburg, Junius Pamphlet
