    A great article from one of the most intelligent journalists at CNN:

    One of Rick Perry's more lucid comments was that we should cut this country off. I agree 100%.

    Well some would argue they've been a benefit in helping root out Terrorists but i can't support that argument. They obviously hid Bin Laden for years. They hid him while we were giving them $Billions in aid & weapons. That is partly on us though. We gave them all the Taxpayer cash and weapons. And this cash and these weapons may very well be used against us someday. So our foreign policy is a terrible disaster. It's time to bring our troops and our money home. The War has been won. And besides,we're broke anyway.

    Well the only way they'd be used "against" us is if we invade them..or they engage in terrorism.

    In any case..you are right about your post.

    You read the article?

    Yes and he is pretty good. But he's still too much of a Big Government Globalist for my liking. He is spot on with his take on this though.
