I think the most interesting thing to happen in the last 20 years is the fact, our governments keep claiming WE ARE AT WAR...
Yet, have any of us seen a foreign troop on our home soil? o_O
True. Absolutely true.
Of course it was absolutely true that not one Nazi solder stepped foot on US soil either. It's also true that not one Nazi bomb was dropped on US
Japan however did attack US territories.
So I guess by that reasoning, what the US should have done during WW2 was go to war with Japan, but ignored Nazi Germany (the problem being of course
that Japan, Germany and Italy were in a alliance, etc, etc).
Then again, maybe we should have gone back more and just not done the Lend-Lease Program
I mean, it wasn't our problem. Germany wasn't invading or bombing us.
And maybe we should have just ignored Japan too. No Oil Embargo
at all. Just kept selling them oil and let them do what they wanted to do (bomb and take over areas of Asia), so long as they just left us alone. I
mean they were not invading and taking over our places before that, right?
I mean, seriously, think of just how happier the world would have been. It's quite possible that Germany at that time would have finished bombing the
UK into submission, and without all that equipment and support from the lend-lease, and of course the US entering the war, Germany would have been
able to more fully support their eastern front against the Soviet Union.
Who knows? They may have captured enough of the USSR that there would have been no more Stalin.
Just one big Japanese Empire in Asia (Australia too), and a huge Nazi Europe. They would have possibly had more time to work on their
program and had the "Bomb" instead of the US and other countries......
I'm sure the world would be a happier place now.......I mean, Israel would never have come to be. And the middle east? I highly doubt a powerful Nazi
Germany or Imperial Japan would have left that place alone. All that oil you know.......and I'm sure that either empire would have been very tolerant
of Islam.........or not and just wiped it from the face of the Earth.
But I guess we'll never know. Because we did get involved, and things did happen to where the world is what it is today. A place where America is
viewed as a big bully, or a New Nazi Germany by others. Again, it's just like that statement says:
Damned if you do. Damned if you don't.
But seriously. I get tired of all the hate, so IMHO I really believe that my country should just pull up stakes everywhere. Refuse to aid anyone for
anything. And just basically give the rest of the world the middle finger and turn our back on it. Keep our own people safe here, and let the rest of
the world deal with itself.
Another country becomes powerful, stars invading, or even starts using nuclear weapons? Did they attack us? No? Well sorry, good luck with that.
Another huge disaster with tens of thousands of people killed from a earthquake / volcano / tsunami, etc, etc?
Sorry to hear about it. What? Aid? Not only no, but hell no. Deal with it. Go pester some other country for aid. It didn't happen to us. Not our
A plague of some sort broke out in some country? Oh, yah, our CDC found a cure for that one. But we keep to ourselves here. What? Help you cure it?
Sorry. Find a cure yourself. We don't want to get involved. Matter of fact, our borders are now closed to you, we don't want it to get here.
I really don't think the US is all that. I mean it's quite obvious we're not wanted in many places. Hate for our country has been growing even before
9/11, and so many of these other countries have been around a lot longer than the US (as they like to point out again and again).
So again, I think we should just tell the rest of the world to "Zark Off." and when bad things happen, just look at them and say: 'Wow. Too bad. Sucks
to be you." and go about our own business.
