Land of the Free – WITH CONDITIONS

Oscar: Americans love freedom, huh MacIntosh?

MacIntosh: Yep.

Oscar: Sos they want the Egypt peoples to be free from theirs dictator, huh MacIntosh?

MacIntosh: Not everyone.

Oscar: Some people don’t want Egypt to be free?

MacIntosh: Neocons, the oil industry, supporters of Israel…they have conditions.

Oscar: Like whats?

MacIntosh: They want the new guy, if there is a new guy, to be “our guy”.

Oscar: Whats he gotta do?

MacIntosh: Cheap oil, act as a buffer between Israel and the Arab world and, from time to time, torture the hell out of someone we send to them.

Oscar: Whys would they do that?

MacIntosh: Billions of reasons.

Oscar: I think them neocons and peoples have a different history book.

MacIntosh: How different?

Oscar: In their book the Declaration of Independence says We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…WITH CONDITIONS”

MacIntosh: Yep.

Oscar: And it says That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…WITH CONDITIONS”

MacIntosh: Maybe they thinks it’s true just for them.

Oscar: Then theys got a different Abraham Lincoln that says Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves…WITH CONDITIONS”

MacIntosh: Yep.

Oscar: And theys got a different John F. Kennedy who says Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty…WITH CONDITIONS.”

MacIntosh: The neocons think we should put America’s interest first…or at least third after Israel and oil profits.

Oscar: I thinks the American peoples, all of them, the liberals and the teabaggers, should get together and make them neocons take a time out untils theys remember what it means to be an American.

MacIntosh: Good idea. Maybe they can make them memorize what Ricardo Flores Magon said in 1914.

Oscar: Whats did he say?

MacIntosh: We are free, truly free, when we don’t need to rent our arms to anybody in order to be able to lift a piece of bread to our mouths.”

    Cold war us and them… With Iran…

    Like the old NASA joke our Nazi rocket scientists are better than your Nazi rocket scientists.. Miss the cold war 🙂

    Actually I do keep out of the two party mindset…ROFL
    I do this as a game trying to take the opposite on the posts with Don, a fun mental exercise. Both parties aren’t worth a brass farthing ….

    Still think the Salmon joke was priceless.

    The United States has no problem with dictators or corrupt regimes of any sort as long as they play ball. If Wall Street is happy then the US will just do a bit of lip-service to keep the people placated about the human part of the equation. Economics trumps human rights and all ideologies in our governmental policy.

    We would not have given two shits who lead Iran in 1979 as long as they were economically compliant… obviously the new regime did not play ball.

    Our neo-liberal economic policy is just our old imperialist policy in a shiny new veneer.

    “Uncle Stevier”, your silly little dichotomies are hilarious… try to think outside the false two party monopoly mindset… Glad to see you are back. 🙂

    Lynching is a Democrat tradition in these parts…

    Bush was freely elected twice… Don’t see any of you liberal types Singing “We are the world” when his name is brought up…

    But its only freely elected governments that follow liberalism, socialism that matter I guess. But all of those liberal socialist governments are morally and fiscally bankrupt LOL

    Like most real Americans I support self-determination…the notion that governments should derive their power from the consent of the governed. Chavez was freely elected in a UN supervised election.

    How do conservatives, who spend so much time hating our democratically elected government, accuse liberals of country hate without drowning in a pool of hypocrisy. If criticism of government is a traitorous act, the teabaggers and conservatives should all be hung from the nearest tree.

    Carter the man that lost Iran. Obama the man that lost, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt to radical Islamics. A liberal who blames all the evils of the world on his nation of birth, who no longer resides but cast as aspersions.

    Hey hypocrite liberals, weak up – Bush is out of the White House LOL, and regarding liberty and freedom your great and most unholy Messiah Obama did NOTHING to support the uprising in Iran under that despotic regime…
    Besides current undercurrent goes back to Condi Rice in her 2005 Cairo speech. “Sorry Charlie” your tuna stinks….

    The canal is but also isn’t that important to international shipping. It was 30 years ago in fact shorty after America voted out that incompetent bastard Carter. The Suez was again opened up for general transit use. the AMERICA battle group transited west-east relieved the INDEPENDENCE on Gonzo station and they sailed west to east the following week.. Cape of Good Hope would add an extra couple of weeks, but modern transports are diesel not boiler powered and the overhead cost wouldn’t be that large.

      Hows does one lose something you never had the right to in the first place. These countries, these people, were not born to serve the interests of America..they are not ‘ours’ to lose.

      Your concern seems to be about the outreach of American power. We have supported tyrants throughout the middle east, 30 years and 600 billion to Mubarac alone, to get our cheap oil. This is support of democracy? If you are still American enough to respect our ideals, you will support the rights of people all over the world to self-determination. You will want American power withheld…you will remove the conditions you have fostered for freedom and democracy. Otherwise you’ve become just another power broker…its about controlling the Suez canal, its about controlling and stabilizing a region so we can get our oil and get it cheap.
