A good opportunity for Obama to ditch out of his Strategic 'Pivot' to Asia which he regrets he has commented on it. There is no place for us in Asia anymore. Too much of a burden. It is better that China takeover.

you want to know the truth. most of these asian countries don't really give a shit about the usa.

we are just an atm to those countries. no more. no less.

when we need their help, they always want us to pay them money up front for any assistance.

then, when the roles are reversed, when THEY need us, our politicians throw themselves at them. our politicians send in OUR troops to die for THEM.

where's the logic?

the usa should stop pandering to all these other countries like we are their slaves.

we should make our country strong. and when others need our help, we should make them pay dearly for it.

that's the way they treat us. that's the way we should treat them.

obama wants to help syria? tell those in syria how much land they are willing to give us for our help.

I'm tired of all the freebies we give out to foreign countries only to get hated in return.

bring back our troops to protect our own borders. that's the way it should be.

the idiots on capitol hill don't even know we are being invaded. that's how brain dead stupid they are.
