d12, your idea is basically sound, and I don’t want to discourage you, but…don’t think the US won’t pursue action against you. You have no air defense to speak of, and the pilots need their proficiency flight time anyway. But don’t mind them, they’ll just be testing some new ordnance ON YOUR ASS!
So dig a deep hole, stock up on water and jerky, and get ready for quite a few weeks of shelter living. Don’t rely on cable TV, it’s always their first target. I suggest you lay in some DVDs for entertainment, minimally Showgirls and Patton are the two films no lunatic dictator can be without.
May as well start grantwriting while you’re down there. Don’t forget plenty of big envelops and postage. Some possible money sources:
[li]The US Army - many of your citizens can find menial employment with the occupation forces. [/li][li]The CIA. Rat out your neighbors, vote faithfully the US line at the UN, and receive a comfortable annuity.[/li][li]The EPA. Superfund waste site cleanup. Make this one your first one out the door.[/li][li]US Agriculture Department. Ideally, you can get a contract NOT to grow certain crops.[/li][li]The US DEA. Let them pick among the craters for any remaining coca plants.[/li][li]The US pharmaceutical industry. Allways looking for test subject populations.[/li][li]Toy makers world wide. Perhaps Kaplan Evil Action Figures? The point being, you need to diversify.[/li][li]Work a deal with the Catholic church. Cooperate with their “save the souls of Kaplan’s Pagan babies” campaign for a cut off the top. [/li][li]Hollywood. Don’t even TRY to guess what half-baked Kaplan-related scripts will come out, just go with whoever can hand you a certified check. Even your rubble will look better after their set people dress it up. [/li][/list=1]
Good luck! I’ll look for you on the Learning Channel!
