It is Time to Say NO!
BY RU Rob
Over the last week I have watched the insane, murderous uprising of extremist Muslims over a silly movie. I have watched terrorist groups use this opening and cover of civil unrest to further their individual agendas and have mourned the loss of American lives who were genuinely trying to help these countries we fiscally support. This whole mess really got me to thinking, maybe the good ole USA needs to use this uprising as a lesson to those who seem to want to abuse us and our generosity.
Now before you get all fired up, let me explain. When you were a child you really had no sense of wants and needs. When you went to the store with your parents and saw that really cool toy, you just had to have it. Most of the time your parents would say “no” as you really didn’t need it; it was more of a want. You were upset about it but in the long run you learned that there was a definitive difference between a need and a want and most of the time, wants could wait.
It is time for the US to be the parent and to teach the rest of the world the difference between needs and wants.
For example, in the wake of the uprising the US State Department wanted to bolster the security of its mission in the country of Sudan. The US had requested to send an additional 50 Marines into the country through normal diplomatic channels. Sudan’s response: “No.”
Well, little baby Sudan, why don’t we just remind you of a couple of things. For 2013 you have requested $40.6 million dollars in aid. And, just in case you didn’t know your average annual income per person, it is $2,400. Now, look at your estimated population of 40 million people and you can see that you are requesting that we give you enough money for a lot of your people’s annual income.
Ok so there is a civil war going on in Sudan, and the Darfur region is a hot mess. But it isn’t like we don’t have our own problems here to deal with. I am sure we could use that $40 million to help pay down our national debt, or something. Here is a start, maybe a pay raise for the 2.7 million federal civilian employees who haven’t seen one in the last 3 years.
Moving right along…
I am not going to spend a lot of time on lil’ brother Pakistan, they have more than $2.2 billion in requested aid for 2013. They have a couple of stellar accomplishments, like harboring the #1 terrorist in the world for years; jailed the doctor who helped us end the reign of said terrorist and had the balls to talk back to mommy and daddy when we decide it is time for Osamie to die. If I had the ability to bitch-slap a country, Pakistan would be the tops on my list.
Do you see where I am going with this? This aid is only through direct payment to individual countries. Let’s not even get started on the amount of economic assistance we provide through other means, like the influx of American dollars where our Armed Forces are stationed throughout the world. I guran-damn-tee you it is a shit-ton.
It is time for Mommy and Daddy to say NO, and not just a little no with a pat on little Jimmy’s head, but a firm and resounding NO. It is time to bring EVERYONE home, lock the doors and have some mandatory family fun. Let’s just see how the world reacts when the wallet of the United States closes. I am willing to bet the farm that behavior improves and these fucksticks just may learn a lesson in manners. Remember 25 years ago when Libya got out of line? We spanked their ass, sent them to their room and they were good, until we fucked up and started getting all apologetic. Just sayin!
Oh, and for all of you intellectuals out there…my numbers came from here. Because I just know there is someone out there who is incapable of googling it for themselves.
