    meanwhile, OUR people were dying from cold weather and no electricity in OUR country. Wouldn't it have been great if OUR money and OUR manpower took care of OUR people and put up some sort of solar power to keep OUR people from dying?

    Not that I don't want to be a huminatarian, and i hate to see any people suffer, but all around the world THEY will accept OUR money for THEIR projects, but yet they will BLAME us if something goes wrong. Why the hell isn't THEIR government doing something to help THEMSELVES?
    best i have heard in months!!!!!!!!!!! way to go!!!

    Its not like the US Government will do anything from stopping them. Gotta get permission from the Boss, Soros.
    New World Order = open border.

    Locals will have to take care of matters on their own. Message sent loud and clear.

    Laredo Texas averages over 1 kidnapping a week. Many of the victims are seen in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Last time I was there they had 6 kidnappings in 7 days.

    If you give and give to a person without making them earning it they will not advance in life, and why should they if its just given to them and now they expect it from you.

    Countries are run by people so not only that they wont the give me give me mantallity, they demand it instead of instead of making there country self sufficient

    If I spend hundreds of thousands of dollars of my own money on a risky business venture, and it goes defunct, I only have myself to blame. If China buys into the failing banks in this country, and loses millions of dollars, it's not OUR fault THEY bought this crap. Sorry, no refunds.

    We spend money for countries throughout the world in order to bring them food, clothing, shelter, and protection, but we forget that these countries have been living without this stuff for the past thousand years or so. So, when a newly developed 2nd world country begins to sluff off back into the 3rd world again, everyone blames the US. It was the action the US took to begin to help these 3rd world countries and try to bring them into the new age. We didn't do it because we wanted to, but because we were expected to. Now, with everything going downhill rapidly, apparently it's all our fault because we were trying to help.

    I just love this world...don't you?

    I watched a show last night, "House of cards". It went into great detail explaining the economic crash that occured here in the US. What I see is the rest of the world blaming the US for it's problems. Apparently, traders on Wall St. sold the bad mortgages on the open global mkt. Now, there's bankrupt people all over the globe thinking all of this is our fault.

    Making his first appearance before the panel as President Obama's top intelligence adviser, Blair said the most immediate fallout from the worldwide economic decline for the United States will be "allies and friends not being able to fully meet their defense and humanitarian obligations." He also saw the prospect of possible refugee flows from the Caribbean to the United States, and a questioning of American economic and financial leadership in the world.
    Humanitarian obligations!

    That is the kind of crap drives me crazy. We waste so much money feeding people who want to kill us.

    Official: Economic Strife Poses Security Threat to U.S.

    By Walter Pincus
    Washington Post Staff Writer
    Thursday, February 12, 2009; 3:22 PM

    Director of National Intelligence Dennis C. Blair told Congress today that instability in countries around the world caused by the current global economic crisis rather than terrorism is the primary near-term security threat to the United States.

    "Roughly a quarter of the countries in the world have already experienced low-level instability such as government changes because of the current slowdown," Blair told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, delivering the first annual threat assessment in six years in which terrorism was not presented as the primary danger to the country.

    Making his first appearance before the panel as President Obama's top intelligence adviser, Blair said the most immediate fallout from the worldwide economic decline for the United States will be "allies and friends not being able to fully meet their defense and humanitarian obligations." He also saw the prospect of possible refugee flows from the Caribbean to the United States, and a questioning of American economic and financial leadership in the world.

    But Blair also raised the specter of the "high levels of violent extremism" in the turmoil of the 1920s and 1930s along with "regime-threatening instability" if the economic crisis persists over a one- to two-year period.

    In discussing terrorism, Blair emphasized the progress being made against al-Qaeda, saying, "We have seen notable progress in Muslim opinion turning against terrorist groups like al-Qaeda" as more religious leaders question the use of brutal tactics against fellow Muslims. He said that "al-Qaeda today is less capable and effective than it was a year ago" based on the pressure the United States, Pakistan and others put on Osama bin Ladin and his core leadership in Pakistan's tribal areas and the decline of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

    Despite these successes, Blair said al-Qaeda and its affiliates and allies "remain dangerous and adaptive enemies" and that the threat continues that they could inspire or orchestrate an attack on the United States or European countries. He told the committee there is still concern that al-Qaeda could inspire some homegrown terrorists inside the United States. He added that if al-Qaeda is ever forced out of the Pakistan tribal areas, it would have difficulty supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan. He said bin Ladin could relocate to other areas. For example, he said, al-Qaeda elements in Yemen now pose a new threat to Saudi Arabia, whose own efforts up to now have been successful in killing or capturing most al-Qaeda senior leaders in that country.
