    Thumbs up Speech

    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 the 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 I raq 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 p ertains 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 ****ing 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.

    From a currently serving, CANADIAN soldier, "You're Welcome". And if he were still alive, I am sure that my Granfather would say "You're Welcome" as well, after his sojourn through Western Europe, 1942-46. {Ya, thats right, 1946 - he was there for some of the "clean-up" in the Death Camps.}

    I was totally with you until you bashed Canada. Their guys are seeing a lot of action in Afghanistan (which is one reason the few troops we still have there weren't immediately overrun when most of our military left to go to Iraq). Their leaders and troops are also taking a lot of heat for being in Afghanistan from Canadian leftists. Don't judge the whole country on account of a few leftist newspapers (yeah, they struggle with balanced media coverage in their country as well). Believe me, as much as it is difficult for U.S. citizens to remain focused on 9/11, it is even harder for a country that wasn't directly attacked. They just reassigned tanks to their military (no more sardine cans with machine guns). They aren't ready to roll over and play dead, at least not yet.

    Maybe the U.S. could make this fight alone. I believe we could, but if I'm going in to a burning building, I'd damn sure rather have someone watching my back! I feel the same way about the Canadians and the help they've given us. I appreciate it fully.

    Maybe you should read this (I realize it is 34 years old, and the America that Gordon Sinclair was referring to was much greater than the one we have now, but it is a powerful read no less): The Americans

    Malahat bud, maybe I can't agree with you on gun control, but I've got your back on this one. I think our grandfathers who fought together on D-Day would beat some young 'un's asses if they saw the way our generation was behaving toward each other.

    Play nice, kids.

    a couple other countries with soldiers and or contractors over here that deserve some credit but don't get much are Peru, Nepal, and the Republic of Georgia. They have guys pulling guard duty and other services at a lot of bases in Iraq but you never really here much about them..

    Now that you mention it, I recall seeing that somewhere before, maybe even on these forums. I think it started as one of those anonymous chain email things. Sorry, I reacted out of haste.

    However, everything I said, I meant.

    Edit: On the topic of isolationism, I believe it is healthy in moderation. The younger, naive generations don't want our troops in their countries, so if they ask us to remove them, we should. If they get attacked once we leave (as in the case for North and South Korea), we'll just have to see what the international community (the U.N.) does in response. If they just pass resolutions and condemn things (like they always do), then we know that they aren't serious about doing anything about it, so we shouldn't be either. In WW2, our allies basically had to drag us out of neutrality, and I think at that point, we were perhaps getting carried away with the whole isolation concept. There is a balance, but either way, I believe we are too involved in private foreign affairs.

    As to the remark about drilling for oil in Alaska, I think we could do better by researching alternative fuels. We put a man on the moon, this ought to be a piece of cake, but no one has any faith in our universities and scientists. They'd rather just drill for oil because its so easy, and lucrative, at least until gas hits $5 /gallon here in the U.S., and people refuse to buy anymore.
