The speech Bush and Powell should make

The speech Bush & Powell SHOULD make:

To ALL the assembled representatives of the United Nations...

Maybe, just maybe we, the United States have reacted too emotionally to terrorist attacks over the past 12 yrs. (Going back to the first bombing of the US Marine barracks in Beirut, the World Trade Center, our embassies, The USS Cole, the Pentagon, etc.)

What we have now decided, is to take the advice of all the opposing nations and stop interfering in other countries' affairs.

So as not to be accused of imperialism, we will, effective immediately:

1) Withdraw ALL our military peacekeeping troops from around the globe, so that we may more effectively protect our own people and borders. To put this into effect ASAP, we must regretfully ---

2) Stop ALL financial foreign aid. You know -- heartless, capitalistic, self-serving things like sending nutritional and medical aid, supplies, personnel, and other forms of assistance whenever natural disasters strike (earthquakes, drought, famine, disease). No nation even comes close to the charity we bestow on others.

Yes, I'm fully aware that the US is guilty of waste & polluting, as are other nations around the world -- but no other nation shares their wealth and puts forth the amount of time, money, research, and effort in trying to resolve (and solve) these problems, worldwide.

3) We will use the money given previously as foreign aid to develop alternate energy sources, so at long last we can tell the middle east where they can stick their oil.

Giving peace a chance... Hmmm... 12 years and 17 UN resolutions, I would call that giving peace a chance. Surely you understand history better than us. Far be it that we stubbornly try and share freedom & democracy with the rest of the world. You go your way -- we'll go ours. If terrorists topple your buildings, murder your populace, force a religion on you, demean your women, and force your children into the military, just call for yet another peace summit. Or sanctions. That'll bring justice.

Oh, and by the way, we're taking our building back. You are hereby evicted immediately. We're giving it to the homeless. Y'all don't come back now...ya hear?

Oh, and one last thing.... About your debts??... Pay up!!!!

Thank you, and God Bless America!
