I had to deal with these people almost 40 yrs ago when we were training "their Best and brightest" to operate Missile systems we had sold their counties trying to buy friends in the middle East. It wasn't working then either.

For those of not from Rochester, Bob Lonsberry is a former

D&C reporter who now is an independent writer!

How about this.

How about we pack up and come home.

How about we tell them were not giving them another dime.

How about we tell them to go screw themselves.

How about we leave them to live their Stone Age lives with their

savage culture and their fanatic religion.

We've been bankrolling and defending any number of Muslim nations over

the last decade and where has it gotten us? Our ambassador is dead,

our embassies are under attack and our allies are shooting us down.

Its time to take the hint.

Its time to give them the finger.

We've spent years trying to win their hearts and minds. Its about time

we realized they have neither.

It's about time we realized its every man for himself, and America

has got to take care of itself.

If they ever crawl out of the Dark Ages, maybe we can re-engage.

Until then, to hell with them.

We have in recent days seen protests across scores of nations, people

assailing our embassies and burning our flag. Shouting their support

for a dead terrorist and waving aloft his flag. Nations we liberated

and fund repay us with hatred and condemnation. Soldiers and police

whom we have clothed, paid, trained and armed turn their guns upon us

in acts of contempt and cowardice.

We have given them our blood and our treasure and they have given us

the back of their hand.

And its time to cut them loose.

If the Russians or Chinese want to make allies of them, let them try.

If we fear Iranian or Islamic expansion, what has anything we've yet

done done to slow them? Its all a perfect mess and its time to scrape

it off the sole of our boots.


This isn't invective and frustration. This is a policy proposal.

More likely, this is the will of the American people.

Cut the aid, pull the troops, stop the gravy train. Leave the sandbox

to the cats.

No more foreign aid for any of them, pull our embassies out of half

of them, wave good bye to most of them. We don't need Afghanistan,

Pakistan, Libya, Egypt or any of them. They are a noose around our

neck and they want nothing more than to dance on our graves.

It is clear they don't like us, and are never going to like us. It is

clear our foreign policy elicits their contempt, not their respect.

Lets buy oil from the ones we have to buy oil from and ignore the

rest. We don't need them. They serve absolutely no useful purpose.

So kiss them good bye.

Lets keep our homeland defenses strong, work even harder on

intelligence, and do our best to keep them and their suicide vests on

their own side of the ocean.

We tried. It didn't work. Lets write them off.
