    WE ARE NOT THE WORLDS BABY SITTER.
    Patraus said he almost reigned when Obama pulled down troops in Afghanistan. If we cannot win a war in 10 years in small countries like Afghanistan and Iraq, we cannot win at all. We are just “baby sitters.” If these people wanted democracy and freedom bad enough they will fight for it. Evidently it does not mean much to them. They have been fighting for thousands of years and the strongest always win. Any time we leave these counties will revert back to old habits. Old habits die hard and we cannot force freedom down their throats. Iraq will always need a ruthless dictator unless Kurds, Sunni and Shiites forget they hate each other. They are not like Republicans and Democrats. Christians and Jews. They will kill each other and enjoy doing it.
    We need to think twice, like Colin Powell said; “if we break it we own it.” before we invade another country and try to force democracy and freedom down their throats. Corruption is wide spread in theses countries and in Mexico, which we should have been concentrating on the violence and corruption spilling over our borders and has been for a long time.

    Our true masters, the MIC, have decreed that we shall fight and die to fill their coffers. We will be in a perpetual state of warfare somewhere for the rest of our children's lives.

    Domination is the goal not democracy. Corporate america does not feel safe without knowing the USA military will be abused aka protecting their investments.

    For example:

    "Rebuilding America's Defences," openly advocates for total global military domination” (Very dangerous position which threatens OUR freedoms and the nations security)

    We seem to have forgotten the essential elements of the Reagan Administration's success: a foreign policy that boldly and purposefully promotes American principles abroad.


    Our aim is to remind Americans of these lessons and to draw their consequences for today. Here are four consequences:

    • we need to increase defense spending significantly if we are to carry out our global
    responsibilities today and modernize our armed forces for the future;

    • we need to strengthen our ties to democratic allies and to challenge regimes hostile to our interests and values;

    • we need to promote the cause of political and economic freedom abroad;

    • we need to accept responsibility for America's unique role in preserving and extending an international order friendly to our security, our prosperity, and our principles.


    Legendary War Mongers aka signature proponents of global military domination:

    Elliott Abrams / Gary Bauer / William J. Bennett / Jeb Bush /

    Dick Cheney / Eliot A. Cohen / Midge Decter / Paula Dobriansky / Steve Forbes /

    Aaron Friedberg / Francis Fukuyama / Frank Gaffney / Fred C. Ikle /

    Donald Kagan / Zalmay Khalilzad / I. Lewis Libby / Norman Podhoretz /

    Dan Quayle / Peter W. Rodman / Stephen P. Rosen / Henry S. Rowen /

    Donald Rumsfeld / Vin Weber / George Weigel / Paul Wolfowitz /

    Behind the scene:

    Newt Gingrich / George Herbert Walker Bush / James Baker / Vice Adm John Poindexter

    Some of the names abroad seem to have history such as Iran-Contra and financial institution scams.
