Can we at least get one with a pair of BALLS?
All the sabre rattling we did at Iraq, and are doing at Iran & N.Korea, and the evil glances we cast at Syria, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Saudi, Jordan, Liverpool…What is all that? The whole damned planet knows where the U.S. leadership is heading, why drag it out? It’s too expensive to strike & occupy, and it kills our guys.
Condie: "Now lookie here N. Korea, if you keep up with this, you’ll be isolated some more. And you too Iran! Just put those filthy nukes down and step away from the stockpile. Or else. " Yeah, or else what? Or else we’ll smack your country upside the head anyway? Like we did to Saddam…you should be thankful we got him off you back doorstep, nevermind who put him there in the first place. Now hand over the oil & tahini like the good little bootlickers we might let you be.
We got TONS of nukes just rotting away, a world that doesn’t trust us anyway, and apparently we also have an agenda that includes smacking down anyone who dares aproach us at the top of the hill. We haven’t been about “human rights” since Carter packed his bags in the 70s, why not just take off the mask and admit it–we want to run the world and enslave it in various flavors from outright oppression to political/financial extortion. The honesty would be refreshing.
Old Kim waving nukes in our face? Didn’t anyone ever tell him the first rule of concealed carry: the only time someone knows you’ve got a weapon is when they’re seeing the muzzle flash! Show the little bitch what a REAL nuke power is capable of. Iran wants to keep nuke weapons open as an option? Let’s send a few to their leadership too. House of Sod? They’re up to no good, coy bastards, let’s sterilize the place and move Nabisco over there–only a few degrees more than the ambient temerature and you can bake all the goodies you want–think of the energy savings! The world will turn against us? Big whoop. Bring the boys back home, seal up the borders give the cops some better guns and some REAL power–we’ll be safe from the foreigners!
Honestly, has NOBODY in the Whitehouse ever played Risk? Allies are a waste of time. Just set your borders, attack the threats, expand your turf. Any populations rise up from within, squish it and behead any news execs that allow it to air. What’s so damned hard about that? Shit. At least nobody can call us anything but ruthless, and when hasn’t that been a quality held in awe by history?
Come on Mr. Bush, I just can’t respect a man who won’t out with his agenda and stand behind it. Stop pissing down my back and telling me it’s raining!
