Which country are you from that isn't corrupt? It's probably Britain, and I guess we'll have to overlook a few centuries of imperialist oppression and a couple of world wars (caused by squabbling with the other European imperialist powers) to give you a "brownie button". Britain? France? Germany? Spain? Italy? Russia? Not exactly using Gandhi for a role model.
Indochina, Korea, Eastern Europe, Pakistan, Afghanistan and the rest of the Middle East messes? All caused by the failed projection of European military power and it's failed imperialism. Israel? Because you guys scared the Jews so bad they went to live in a desert that wouldn't grow a good scorpion.
