Yes, I've heard it all. I don't agree that the U.S. does that. I understand the reasoning behind it, or try to, but I don't think we should do that anymore. It's the "I'll scratch your back if you scratch my back" idea. It's time to stop that and just go it alone. It's the same thing in Korea. I was shocked to find out that we are supplying Korea with most of their food or they would literally be starving. I've heard people say that all North Korea is doing is trying to get more food out of the U.S. like a spoiled child. See, itís that strategy of - Iíll give you food or money or whatever if you let us put troops t here, or be a good boy, donít nuke South Korea, or whatever the U.S. is trying to do. Itís time for the U.S. to stop that policy and let the world just be. Itís backfiring instead of helping. So, you see, I do read a lot and do know what is going on, I'm not as uninformed as I think you are trying to point out here.
