All I get out of this "screw our morality since its getting in the way of political profits "
just like corporations ignoring sweatshops for profits …

Given the history of support for people like Saddam and Pinochet all this proves is that Tillerson’s understanding of international relations revolves solely around corporation/state interactions.

That’s not what he said. And everyone agrees that what he said is absolutely correct, it’s just that you’re not supposed to say it out loud. From your cite (emphasis added):

Looks like he left out a conjunction in that last sentence. I mean, why the fuck do you think we’ve been cozying up to Saudi Arabia for decades? Because we love their sand?

Isn’t it about 40 years too late for “should”.

Longer than that. What we did to take the Philippines makes what we did to Mexico look like a visit from the Welcome Wagon.
