# Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit your question.     The term you're looking for is "imperialism". – Bregalad 2 hours ago     @Bregalad It is weird that you give me objective term that I asked and, at the same time, say that it is subjective and not answerable. – valentin 1 hour ago        In the context of this website your question is opinion based which isn't what this site is about, as I would take it as a rant which I could only assume to be about US or Donald Trump. It is indeed answerable but in regards to the term you ask for, but not for the historical example. As that would be one person's opinion against another whether it fits the context of what you are asking. – Bradley Wilson 1 hour ago      Please be more specific. What is a problem with assuming US or D. Trump, what is the problem with having historical examples? What has it to do with persons? Just say that this question would be legitimate if imperialism would not be the current US policy. Do not try to hide your ideas behind verbiage. – valentin 1 hour ago        At best I'd say that this question is off topic here. if you really are after only the term to be used, you should ask on english.se. – Federico 1 hour ago     These are not my ideas, I didn't vote to close. This website is a forum for questions to be asked in a way where you have to atleast done some research into the topic you are querying about, that can be answered with verifiable facts in a partial setting which is more specific to government processes and policies. Asking about imperialism is more of a question for History.SE, if you are looking for examples. – Bradley Wilson 1 hour ago      @Federico Why should I try opinion-based question at another site? Who says that single term questions are off-topic here and on-topic there? Might be it is vice-versa. – valentin 1 hour ago    2  because there single term questions are on topic, they even have a tag for them: english.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/single-word-reque‌ sts But ONLY if you are after the term. – Federico 1 hour ago      @BradleyWilson My primary question is a political term, not historical example. My question applies to the current state of affairs, not just history, as you have spotted yourself. – valentin 1 hour ago        Because I said the term can be answered doesn't mean its on topic here, I would follow federico's advice if thats the case. I spotted a rant in which i made my assumption clear. It still doesn't make it on topic as is. – Bradley Wilson 1 hour ago      @Federico But terminology tag here does not say that single-word terms are banned here. Who says that it is unreasonable to ask for political term in the political forum? – valentin 1 hour ago    1  "The purpose of my question is to make people think a little" <- definitely="" off="" s="" span="" that="" topic=""> – Federico 1 hour ago     @valentin Personally I voted because it's off topic, even if it says "opinion based", that's just because the majority of voters choose that (why, I have no idea, I don't think it's opinion based). I think the question could be on topic on English SE as Frederico advised, definitely not on History SE though. – Bregalad 11 mins ago

Donald Trump has attacked Syria impulsively, based on Ivanka watched news. Why such double standards. He tells about fake news in western media all the time when they portray him as terrible guy but trusts them wholeheartly when some another guy is portrayed as evil. Why does Assad uses chemical weapons against its civilians and never against the ISIS? Is he crazy? Only anti-Assad jihadi groups were interested in the chemical attacks. Assad gains nothing but looses everything using chemical weapons. Nevertheless, this simple idea never visits the head even those people who notice how flawed western media is. How is that possible? Why violate the international law, in classical imperialist style, and be afraid of investigation? How can you repeatedly say that media lies and be its brainless puppet at the same time?

This is more a rant than an actual question. And if you don't like the site (I did read the profile) you are free to not visit it. – SJuan76 1 hour ago
