This is going to offend a hell of a lot of people but after watching the BBC, NBC, CNN and hearing about the bombings in India, the renewed fighting in Israel, and the fact that the International Red Cross is pulling most of their workers out of Baghdad, when the will the United States just leave them to it and let them all just blow each other up?
I have to be honest here: I don’t really care about Israel or Iraq, or the Middle East in general. They can’t seem to think of civilized ways of dealing with each other beside to bomb innocent people in cowardly ways. It goes back to my saying that if you want freedom and stability, you need to earn it yourself and not expect someone else to hand it to you.
Personally, I think the US should pull out the Middle East and say: “Look, forget about you and you acting like animals… we will not shed another drop of American blood nor spend another American dollar on your issues. And if ANY of you think that you will solve your problems by using a nuclear weapon, we the United States will just nuke the hell out of the first person who tries it. This is our plan for ‘non-proliferation’. Until you can stop the name calling, bombing, anon shooting, you all can just rot in the hell you are making for yourselves.”
Yeah, I know things are not this simple and that this is a very callous statement… but sometimes what people need is a good kick in the butt and slap in the face to sort themselves. The US needs to get rid of its dependency for oil and stop playing nursemaid to the crybabies in the world. As I said before… make them work for it just as the US did in 1776.
In the meantime, why doesn’t the US spend this effort within its own boarders for once? Protect our jobs and our industry instead of everything being sent to Eastern Europe or India. When will we cut down on the illegals streaming from Mexico? When will we take a step back and just take a look at the State of the Nation… from top to bottom… From the infrastructure to the glossy outsides? People fail to believe that there has been the slow decline of the US because we are still stuck in our “WWII, we are the champions with a car in every garage and a TV in every living room”. Our ancestors would be appalled, I believe in how we have become a nation of blaming our problems on someone else- sue McDonald’s because my coffee is “hot” and Frito Lay because junk food made me fat… There was a time when it was true… when hard work and effort would get you something better in life… Now, it seems we must always blame someone else because our energy bill is too high because we just let the energy companies mismanage without being monitored, or because children are homicidal maniacs from too much rap music as opposed to too little time with the parents.
Where will it all end? Or is this the end… The end of the Pax Americana as was the end of the Pax Romana… The slow decline of a great nation into dust? JFK said once “Ask not what your country can do for you but what can you do for your country.” And he was right to an extent… how we got to this state is by not really watching or seeming to really care what our elected officials are truly doing or saying. What have we done for our country to bring us to this state of affairs?
But, don’t listen to me… worry about thinking how you are going to make a quick buck off of some large company while shoving McDonalds down and watching other people’s boys and girls die for other people’s causes.Powered by Sidelines
