Wow. Man, everyone is laughing at us. Our stature has really fallen.
You know, it used to be we could make fun of the USSR and China, in that sort of respect for 'might', disdainful kind of way. Now, the USSR has been replaced by a mostly chaotic group of poor countries. And NO ONE laughs at China anymore.
They maybe too busy laughing at us, Inspector Lohmann
"America is definitely the brunt of jokes in mainstream Canada; I suspect America is the brunt of jokes throughout the world. I'm glad for it, since humor is the little guy's weapon against bullies. I'm also glad that it's still possible to laugh at America: as long as it's possible to laugh at something there's always hope. But I don't know how much longer that'll be possible: America and the world made fun of Germany and the Nazis for a while until they stopped being so funny."
The sad part is, I can't really muster up much indignation. We've done it again. We've gotten our selves in a yet another mess for no good reason. And we bragged about how we didn't need help anyone's help.
But if that's true, why is everyone upset that all of our allies, except the anglos, are dropping out of our 'coalition of the radically inept
? Why should we care?
Look, ya'll just send your sons and daughters down to the recruiters, and we lick this little problem in no time. It's true, we really don't need any outside help, we just need all you patriotic, flag waving patriots, citizens and non-, to get off your dead asses, and join the military for, say the next ten, fifteen years. That will solve it.
Remember how well that worked for the USSR in the first Afghan, and our success with the tried and true body count method of measuring the progress of war? How can you shy away from the opportunity?
So who's with me? Send your spoiled brats down to the recruiter of their choice TODAY!! We will make fighters out of them one and all. And when they come back, you will see immediately that they are not the same old cocky kids they used to be (Warranty not included).
And, what about you? Under 30? Consider it as retraining for a growing employment sector. With benefits including free training! I see palpapate with excitement at the thought. Go. Go now. Demonstrate your personal support for our efforts in Iraq.
So go ahead now and laugh you foreign bastards. You wait and see. When hundreds of thousands of Americans volunteer for military service, well you guys are on the short list called 'All Other Countries'.
