Joe Biden: "No nation has the right to take land form other nation" But, the US government took more than half of the Mexican land, with the approval of the US Congress. This sounds highly hypocritical when we go around the world invading countries and toppling down governments that we don't like! And wont listen to the UN or any body when we are told not to do it. I think it is time for our government to be honest once and for all and stop playing double standards. How long can they go playing this dirty game of Big Brother? Have we forgotten the harsh history lessons of the Roman Empire...and others, that collapsed under their own weight?
