How about this.
How about we pack up and come home.
How about we tell them were not giving them another dime,
How about we tell them to go screw themselves.p
How about we leave them to live their Stone Age lives with their savage culture and their fanatic religion.p
Weve been bankrolling and defending any number of Muslim nations over the last decade and where has it gotten us? Our ambassador is dead, our embassies are under attack and our allies are shooting us down.
Its time to take the hint.
Its time to give them the finger.
Weve spent years trying to win their hearts and minds. Its about time we realized they have neither.
Its about time we realized its every man for himself, and America has got to take care of itself.
If they ever crawl out of the Dark Ages, maybe we can re-engage. Until then, to hell with them.
We have in recent days seen protests across scores of nations, people assailing our embassies and burning our flag. Shouting their support for a dead terrorist and waving aloft his flag. Nations we liberated and fund repay us with hatred and condemnation. Soldiers and police whom we have clothed, paid, trained and armed turn their guns upon us in acts of contempt and cowardice.
We have given them our blood and our treasure and they have given us the back of their hand.
And its time to cut them loose.
If the Russians or Chinese want to make allies of them, let them try. If we fear Iranian or Islamic expansion, what has anything weve yet done done to slow them? Its all a perfect mess and its time to scrape it off the sole of our boots.
This isnt invective and frustration. This is a policy proposal.
More likely, this is the will of the American people.
Cut the aid, pull the troops, stop the gravy train. Leave the sandbox to the cats.
No more foreign aid for any of them, pull our embassies out of half of them, wave good bye to most of them. We dont need Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Egypt or any of them. They are a noose around our neck and they want nothing more than to dance on our graves.
It is clear they dont like us, and are never going to like us. It is clear our foreign policy elicits their contempt, not their respect. Lets buy oil from the ones we have to buy oil from and ignore the rest. We dont need them. They serve absolutely no useful purpose.
So kiss them good bye.
Lets keep our homeland defenses strong, work even harder on intelligence, and do our best to keep them and their suicide vests on their own side of the ocean.
We tried. It didnt work. Lets write them off.
How about deporting ALL of the Muslim Imans and any known radicals from the U.S.
The Russians and Chinese will have no problem becoming allies with the dictators in the middle east. They do not care about the human conditions there (i.e. people living under dictators), they are not traditional allies of Israel, the only State in the area with whom we share political ideals etc...
In fact, it’s probably accurate to say Iran, Libya and the others are as natural allies with Russia and China as we are with Israel.
Give Israel a free hand to a good portion of the ME for them to do as they please with it not limiting them to ridding the ME of every goat humping Arab over there.
The western world needs to isolate itself from Islam. But, that is only possible by stopping them from immigrating and deporting known radicals. It will never happen. PC is king now.
Okay, so we wait 4 months...
We have all the oil and gas we need in the US for the rest of the century and we know how to get.
Our commitment to the mideast should be limited to standing by to protect Israel and sharing the duty to protect oceangoing shipping through the region.
We don’t use that much mideast oil anyway and those who do can waste the lives of their own soldiers on it.
I’ve been saying that for what? 20 years?
But I’m a bit more radical. End all non-emergency foreign aid, and make all emergency foreign aid volutary by charitable donation. Want something from us? What’s in it for US? < /rant >
They will take out Saudi Arabia next..
It has been clear to me for a LONG time that everyone in The Middle East, except Israel, hated our guts and tolerated us only to take our money. It is probably just as well, because we are broke, and now Hussein (in typical muzzie fashion!) has gone out of his way to even alienate Israel!
Dianna West suggested bringing our troops home 2 years ago. sadly, many (including Freepers), misunderstood her, and criticised her then.
she was simply ahead of most...
You can lead people to freedom, but you can’t make them free.
Civilization and civilized would work in that sentence also.
As long as we need imported oil, we’ll be involved whether we like it or not. Our economy can’t handle $150/bbl oil or higher. American families are under economic attack.
Walking away sounds good but as long as we’re financing the Middle East and terrorism through oil purchases, we don’t have a choice. If we pursued a national strategy of using natural gas for vehicle fuel, it wouldn’t be long before the drop in demand for oil would transfer the financial problems to the Middle East.
Where’s the goofy picture of Obama saying “Did I do that?”
It’s for sure we need immigration reform
Book of Revelations ping??
Yep, and kick the ones here OUT.
Lonsberry in Rochester radio NY!
The originator of FUBO!
sooner and/or l8r things are gonna get bad enough to where the the good guys are gonna reveal themselves....and listen to the little people vs the bigmouth geniuses !!!!!
But we can’t get to it and use it effectively here.... unless or until we dismantle the EPA, which, along with the current Democrat Party.... represents America’s “enemy within”.
Saudi Arabia is the pulling strings. Don’t fool yourself, they are in the funding up to their ears.
It's pretty easy to foretell the future. All we have to do is look back at Jimmy Carter and the Shah of Iran.
Yes, we have let the cancer of Islam invade our nation. Contrary to the Muslim sympathizer in the White House, they had nothing to do with the founding of this country, do not understand or want our freedoms, and will never assimilate as they wait for the day when they can take over and rule the USA according to Sharia law and the Koran.
They all must go back to their Muslim countries and try to change them enough to have the good life they’ve had in the USA. Good luck on that, “moderate” Muslims. Your heads will roll before any reform of your 7th century religion will take hold.
Because of this we will never be completely clear of them.
We can’t leave just yet because Obama’s going to need a place to live once he’s kicked out of office.its too bad we can’t just send him into exhile like the French did with Napoleon.
Another notch in Obama’s “anti-colonial” belt.
His goal is to reduce America’s influence and standing in the world.
Drilling for natural gas on the mainland hasn’t stopped. We’ve got more gas than we can use and more coming.
80% must be by land are. Because when you look at the Bbl and Tcf, It looks like the really big fields are being developed and the rest doesn’t amount to diddly squat.
American companies should be out of the Muslim world as well because they are just endangering the lives of their American employees who sometimes have to travel on business to these very dangerous parts of the world. Muslims are barbarians with an irrational ideology that defends their barbarism as if it was something holy and we should not be putting our citizens within harm's way by sending them to these danger zones against their will.
Take American money out of the Muslim world, take American business out of the Muslim world and let them go back to their dark age economies without electricity, computers and modern travel. No food assistance and no modern medicine either, treat them as the enemy. You do not feed the enemy. Withdrawing assistance from our enemies will send a strong message to the rest of the third world—if you want the goodies from the United States, you had better act like a friend of the United States. Do not appease Muslims, they have been our enemies for 1400 years!
But...but...we have to fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here. /impersonation of a prominent FR argument
As far as I can tell, no muslim nations have the capability of reaching us here without our help.
“Saudi Arabia is the pulling strings. Dont fool yourself, they are in the funding up to their ears.”
Since our country has had no effective energy policy for over 45 years, or, the policy seems to be keep buying Arab Oil, every elected official in DC must be getting a wwekly check from the Saudi King.
It’s the same with the drug war. There is more money for graft, payoffs and coruption by keeping drugs illegal. But I digress.
You’re right on the money.
It is easier to teach a goat to surf than to lead them to water and make them drink
(applies to also to sheeple )
“How about deporting ALL of the Muslim Imans and any known radicals from the U.S.”
Won’t do. What you’re suggesting is removing the cadre of senior officers (of Islam), but the *troops* will still be here, still under the thrall and control of their highest leader.
Stop and think for a moment — just who *are* “the foot soldiers of Islam”? (even if they may not be “on active duty” at any given moment)
And who is “their leader”?
And what is their “field manual of operations”?
Hint: their leader is not anyone alive. In fact, he’s been dead for 1,400 years. But he remains “in control”, through his manual of instructions which keeps the soldiers of Islam under his thumb.
Let’s put this another way — a way even Bob Lonsberry is afraid to talk about.
Assume that your body shows a tumor within. Upon examination, the physician advises you that the clump of cells could be cancer, but at the moment do not appear to be malignant. Nevertheless, they are there.
What do you do about this?
Do you take the “diverse” approach, and deem “all cells equal”, equally deserving of life within your body?
Or, do you realize that at any time, the unwelcome cells could metastasize within, and grow with the potential to destroy you?
What do you do about this?
The West faces this very dilemma.
What will it do?
Based on The West’s behavior over the last eleven years, what’s the prognosis?
The Bush family has been close to that country of crooks for years.
And those two coasts probably use the most oil of all of flyover country. They have the ‘not in my backyard’ attitude. I wouldn’t care if they drilled for oil in my backyard! I would just put white Christmas lights on it and celebrate! Maybe even start a reality show called “Mailbox Money”. /s
I see nat gas as the future, but it will take many, many years to build the refining-fueling infrastructure, vehicles etc to make it happen. We have to get rid of the damned EPA and DOE, first. Then, the Saudis etc and Venezuela can go eat used kitty litter.
It won’t take that long. Refueling equipement is already being installed in a lot of truck stops. Last year 44% of the garbage trucks ordered were speced for natural gas. Congress could speec the process through Senate S 1863 & House Bill 1380.
With the exception of the compressors, the infrastructure meaning the pipelines is already there. Offering tax credits would make it feasible for many more families to install a home compressor for overnight refueling.
Thanks; I didn’t know it’d progressed that far.
What about auto mfgrs? Can internal combustion engines be readily-modified or will all-new engines and vehicles be needed? Gas stations? Will they become obsolete?
Sorry for all the questions. Do you have a URL which explains all the fundamentals & intricacies of this nat’l nat gas conversion?
I just became convinced of nat gas over the weekend, after these ME riots etc - yeah, I know I’m late to the party - that it’s the future for us and the West.
They’ll still come, and we’ll still have to kill them eventually, or surrender and BE killed.
I know nothing about motor vehicles, could you tell me if truck engines or automobile engines for that matter, can be easily adapted to liquified natural gas? Would it be necessary to make changes in the engines? I have heard T. Boone Pickens on the radio talking about putting the country’s trucks on LNG.
Here’s what I found so far. Cost in 4th paragraph:
I’m still poking around; if I find something more concrete, I’ll copy you on it.
This doesn’t bode well:
