I get quite tired of the notion that there is such a thing as "American exceptionalism" (which Mr. Putin wrote about yesterday).
Or Mr. Putin's own statements that the Russian people are by nature a victorious people...and that it's in their genes.
Or Mr. Mahathir's proclamations about Malaysia having special attributes that set it above all the other countries in Southeast Asia.
Or the Thai's belief that King Bhumipohl is a preeminent international leader and that their country is the best country on the planet.
Aren't all of these just examples of nationalism?
Don't all (or at least most) countries have some special attributes and some dark chapters?
