Withdrawl all troops and monetary assistance from all parts of the world. Let them sort out their own insignifigant crap. Since we're such bullies, such bad people who only want to set up an empire, I say we just pull out our military from everywhere and hold the fort down while the rest of the world turns to a big steaming pile of crap without our help, or at least until they all come crawling back asking us for money or weapons.
We're the ones in a big steaming pile of crap crawling back asking for money and weapons.
1. the strongest economy in the world
2. the most powerful military in the world
3. the most freely expressive society in the world (despite all of your doomsday prophecies about the usa patriot act)
4. the highest immigration rate in the world
that has got to be the best steaming pile of crap i have EVER seen.
Bob was quite correct in his statement, even if the first 3 points were correct, the US *is* asking for Money and Weapons. It seems being "biggest", "most", "most free", or some other "...est" does not make one Omnipotent.
I am sure it will be debated at the UN and france will veto.
Notice the amount this fiasco is going to cost us? Hundreds of billions of dollars!
Next year's deficit, which the White House previously claimed would decline after this year's record $500 BILLION, will actually INCREASE DUE TO BUSH'S IRRESPONSIBLE INVASION OF IRAQ TO AN ESTIMATED $525 BILLION.
When will you people EVER wake up. Obviously NEVER.
