Have we become morally bankrupt as a nation, in the last few years?
It's not happened over the past few years, but the past many years.
It's boiling frogs. You can't throw a frog into boiling water - he'll jump out. You have to put a frog in room temp water and the slowly bring it to a boil.
But no, we're not all morally bankrupt, just our war monger corporate government - that's what is morally bankrupt.
The entire whole of American mass media - that's a completely morally bankrupt coterie there too.

We became morally bankrupt long ago, back when we decided using nuclear weapons was a good idea.
After we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it was the Japanese emperor who decided that it was in the interest of HUMANITY for Japan to surrender, because the Americans were actually planning more attacks and had no plans of stopping anytime soon.
"Moreover, the enemy now possesses a new and terrible weapon with the power to destroy many innocent lives and do incalculable damage. Should we continue to fight, not only would it result in an ultimate collapse and obliteration of the Japanese nation, but also it would lead to the total extinction of human civilization. Such being the case, how are We to save the millions of Our subjects, or to atone Ourselves before the hallowed spirits of Our Imperial Ancestors? This is the reason why We have ordered the acceptance of the provisions of the Joint Declaration of the Powers. "
