The speech we've all been waiting for....?

WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO TURN ON THE TV AND HEAR ANY U.S. PRESIDENT, DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN GIVE THE FOLLOWING SPEECH?


My Fellow Americans: As you all know, the defeat of Iraq regime has been completed.

Since congress does not want to spend any more money on this war, our mission in Iraq is complete.

This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be complete within 30 days. It is now time to begin the reckoning.

Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries listed there.

The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world's nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war.

The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world Hellholes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the future, together with Congress, I will work to redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home. On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your friends from the face of the earth.


Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.
I am ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.


I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid parking tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don't care about whatever treaty pertains to this. You creeps have tens of thousands of unpaid tickets. Pay those tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world. I love New York.
A special note to our neighbors. Canada is on List 2. Since we are likely to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change.

Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I will have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I am going to put em? Yep, border security.


Oh, by the way, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty - starting now.

We are tired of the one-way highway. Immediately, we'll be drilling for oil in Alaska - which will take care of this country's oil needs for decades to come. If you're an environmentalist who opposes this decision, I refer you to List 2 above: pick a country and move there. They care.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying, "darn tootin."

Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet. It is time to eliminate hunger in America. It is time to eliminate homelessness in America. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thank you guys. We owe you and we won't forget.


To the nations on List 2, a final thought: You might want to learn to speak Arabic.


God bless America. Thank you and good night.
If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you are reading it in English, thank a soldier.

That's a really SCARY speech. The likes of David Duke and Joseph McCarthy would be capable of saying that. Can you just imagine them being presidents?

Ah yes - laisser faire

We, the US that is, tried that once. Helped to create a small problem called WW-I and II.....

Though - looking at a spectrum - immersion on the left and isolationism on the right - it's palatable to me for the pendulum to swing closer to the right - for awhile....

Hi Wes, bored again?

I'd honestly like to think that we could "redirect this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home." But I don't think that can happen as long as we stand by and "watch our own government leaders grow fat on corruption."

Nice theory, but you might as well just say "Wouldn't it be great if we could all just get along and stop all the fighting? Then we wouldn't need the military at all."

That has about an equal chance of success.

So no, I'd say this isn't the speech we've all been waiting for.

Nice try. Next.

Well Wes... congratulations on finding WMD in Iraq, since that was the reason for invading another country instead of going after the real terrorists who hijacked airplanes and crashed them onto our lad...

Instead of retaliating against countries who did not fall for the WMD lies and didn't want to break the law let's focus on securing our borders, building schools, and creating jobs for the workers in the good ole US of A... Let's create business partnerships that will profit the country and not just certain global conglomerates that outsource jobs to India, Pakistan, China, et al...

Another feel good thought.

As far a WMD lies. We should know he had them, we sold them to Iraq.
Not really a lie.

Good ole Saddam had enough time to move Bagdad 30 miles in any direction before we or any one else was able to inspect and attempt to find WMD.

I personally hate war and violence. But what is the right answer? Sure we all have great Monday AM answers for Sundays game but what is the right thing to do about terrorists, and the countries that harbor and allow them to flourish?

What about the conspiracy therorys going around about the whole 911 attack was not done by terrorists? And the pentagon building was not hit by a plane but bombed?

How may of you have voted in the last election? Just wondering? Especially those that oppose the war. It has been my experience that those that oppose our current presidents actions any or all of them did NOT vote and are not even registered. Just my observation.

How about a poll on this. Oppose the war Y or N Voted Y or N

Do you actually believe in this propoganda?

Yes, the US gives "aid" to many countries but do you have any idea about
what kind of conditions, sales contracts (ever heard of "vendor financing"?),
Christian preaching contracts, rights to setting up military base contracts and
what not is tied to those "aids"?

Mantan,

I will add to the list of strings attached to foreign loans. IMF World Bank "Conditionality" specifies how recipient countries should be run. For example, orders to devalue currency, reduce government spending, reduce tariffs, liberalize your banking system, increase taxes, and abide by the "Washington Consensus" of open market liberalism.
In reality it is not aid, but economic imperialism. Are we really superior at managing economies? The U.S, nor any of the developed countries had to deal with this type blackmail in their developing stages, so our development will surely produce different results. Supposedly we want them to be a mirror image of us, but I think this is a product of optimistic free market liberalism.

I was in South Korea when the Won collapsed a few years back. They loved anyone who had "Amelican dollars" and I got some great holiday presents.

On almost every street corner and shop, there were huge signs proclaiming "IMF Sale." The average Korean just knew their money was rapidly becoming "worthless" whatever that meant, and suddenly the IMF turned up so it must be their fault. They had no concept that it was caused by their own corrupt government who forced the banks to loan huge sums of money to Korean big business who had no intention (or capability) to pay it back.

Explosions usually start on the inside, and most people haven't a clue until the shock waves get big enough to encompass them. They usually don't have much of a clue afterwards, even if they're lucky enough to be left standing.

His car or yours?

Or if you prefer you could just go riding with Laura Bush but I doubt that would increase your chances much, as she had a six year head start. Even her grandmother-in-law didn't fare so well with automobiles.

What was your point again?

But that's what happens when logic and intelligence falls short. That, and more cut & paste politics with no grounding in reality.

But he never argues, Gunny, or even debates with his own opinions. He just posts & runs. If he actually contributed anything useful on occasion, I'd be a bit more forgiving.

At least Wes didn't stoop to name-calling to make his point.
