This is my stance on the issue. Let them handle their own affairs. I don't care if they are smaller and have little means of defense. Whatever
happened to "survival of the fittest?" Let Russia have Georgia for lunch. Let Iran have Israel for lunch. Our being involved is merely political and
a "show" of might which is not what this country was supposed to be about.
There were good reasons why our foreign policy was originally not intended to be one of "making allies."
I am not concerned for the ppl over THERE (sad, maybe.. but what/who is in front of me is my main concern). If they were meant to be my concern, then
the 'powers that be' would have put me over there. My concern is with what is going on OVER HERE and our dwindling free market and our dwindling
rights that were laid out in the ORIGINAL constitution.
I know many ppl will say "but what if russia tries to attack us..." Well, goddammit, if we step even more into this pile of *snip* we can be almost
guaranteed that they will.
If we don't step into this and start thinking more about our defenses here at home, when and/or if russia comes after us, then we will fight.... If
we lose, then apparently they were the "fittest".
I just see no more good coming out of helping georgia than I do coming out of us helping Israel. (yes, two different circumstances, but same
disastrous outcome if we don't mind our business). Bad things are up ahead and this lull is filled with dread that rests in the pit of my stomach.
Get our men home and lets start preparing to protect OUR ppl on OUR land!
