Rumsfeld in Munich and monkeys on Mars

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Okay, I heard this a while ago but I have not found any news articles or transcripts relating to it until now, so now I am posting it.

First, the link.

Then, a nice quote from it:


"Any monkey looking down from Mars on Earth knows that the countries in NATO and North America are the bulk of the countries on the face of the Earth that have the same values, the same concerns, the same hopes and aspirations for the world, the same lack of a desire to impose their will on somebody else," [Rumsfeld] explained. "We're the bulk of the democracies in the world. We have common interests. And that is what the interest of the United States has been and is today."

The rest of the conference notwithstanding, this quote just seems like the biggest load of horseshit I've ever seen. How can anyone say that we're not imposing our will on other countries with a straight face?
