Every country is exceptional however when you have to declare yourself exceptional is like a woman saying that she is a woman. Chances are she is not. Politicians always manipulate a conflict to convince themselves that there is a need for war and there are people who are convinced and sold on this lie. You never see a politician taking the first gun and head to the battle field.
Exceptional countries have exceptional leaders. No country is clean in this conflict and there lies the problem. Countries are following their want for blood like vampires. I am not convinced , no matter how exceptional the orator or letter or speech that exceptionalism is at play here.Calling on your desire to spill blood does not make the exceptional leader so Syria and the US are liars.
The world has only one exceptional leader to follow and whoever you choose to call him or refer to him as, he has only one exceptional rule to solve all problems- love one another. Unfortunately love is the exception than the rule hence people will always be at war. God made us exceptional beings capable of doing exceptional things. In all nations an exceptional man exists that compensates the deficiencies of the rest. In those moments, when humanity is found collectively in a state of decadence, there always remain those exceptional beings as point of reference.
