Projection

I get upset when I read about our politicians blathering about the atrocities of these terrorists of whom might be considered freedom fighters by their own people.

Might this just be a Projection? One definition: Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against unpleasant impulses by denying their existence in themselves, while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.

Have we forgotten what we have done to some other peoples of the world? I’m afraid that the rest of the world is fully aware of our not too perfect record in the past.
