About 70 years ago, the world watched Nazi Germany massacre millions before anyone did anything to stop it.
In 2014, we watch the strategic elimination of the Palestinian people.
70 years from now, the world will look back and wonder how we did nothing to stop it before the damage was done.
Call me a terrible person but I firmly believe we need to get our own shit together before we go prancing into another country waving the red, white and blue like the police force for the world.
We keep helping these lesser countries and they will never grow on their own. Yeah, it may be cruel but we became powerful through force and they should learn to do the same or else they aren’t getting anywhere in the grand scheme of things.
Foreign politics needs to stay on hold unless we are directly influenced by ongoing issues. Domestic is more important.
This is like digging a bullet out of someone beside you when you just got shot 8 times by friendly fire. We have to heal ourselves, and let our president do so without blocking him at every turn in the house.
I may not like Obama, but we elected him for a reason, and we need to stop blaming him for not getting shit done when it’s the republican senate that bats down every policy, law or bill he tries to get passed.
So fuck foreign affairs until they are actively aiming the nuclear warheads at us. We are 17-some trillion dollars in debt. We got some shit to do ourselves before we can fix the shit of other people.
