It may be dangerous to be an enemy of the United States, but in recent decades it often has been almost as risky to be a friend. There was Ngo Dinh Diem, the first president of South Vietnam, overthrown and assassinated by his army in 1963 after losing American support. Or the thousands of Iraqis and Afghans who assisted American troops a decade ago but are still waiting for the visas for safe haven in the U.S. The uncomfortable truth is that America has too often treated former allies as expendable.
The drama that played out this year around Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova is a reminder of what can happen when time passes and Americans forget. Gen. Vides was El Salvador’s minister of defense in the government of José Napoleón Duarte in the 1980s. Duarte was an American favorite, with plenty of backing from the Reagan administration and Democrats who understood his commitment to democracy and human rights. . . .
This is a country being run for the sole advantage of the people in charge, just like some Central American banana republic. If I were some other country right now, I would be extremely wary about entering into any deals with the USA, as the Democrats seem to think that "foreign policy" is equivalent to giving blowjobs to your enemies while ignoring your friends.
Actually, when you remember that most Democrats don't actually like America very much, their foreign policy becomes much more clear. Why have a foreign policy that helps the racist, capitalist, patriarchal, 1%ers anyways?
This is why Obama caters to illegal aliens to flood across our borders, but doesn't do a damn thing to help the Afghans who helped us who are now in mortal danger from the Taliban. Since America is bad, people who helped America are bad, and don't deserve any kind of support.
You feeling sick yet? Stock up on ammo, people. There's no guarantee that Hillary won't be the next President, and she hates this country just as much as Obama does. Think about that fact, and weep for your country. The actual possibility of Hillary as President convinces me that this country is in a death spiral, the parasites outnumber the producers, and there's no voting our way out of this.
