The Bush speech I would love to hear

I found this tonight and it gave me a great lift. In a better world, we would have already heard this and it would be part of our national heritage. Perhaps if enough people read it, we might see some changes occur. At any rate, you owe it to yourself to read this and imagine what it could mean.

It has been circulating for a few months and there are at least 15,400 references on Google for it. I could not identify the original author, but it sounds like something almost every American has wished that George Bush would consider doing.

Imagine turning on your TV to hear the President saying this:

My fellow Americans:

As you all know, the defeat of Iraq’s regime has been completed. The discovery and destruction of all weapons of mass destruction have been covered thoroughly in the press. A new Iraqi government has been established and appears to be stable. Our mission in Iraq is complete. This morning I gave the order for a complete removal of all American forces from Iraq. This action will be completed within 30 days.

It is now time to begin the reckoning. Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries that have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, and Poland are some of the countries listed there. The other list contains everyone not on the first list. Most of the world’s nations are on that list. My press secretary will be distributing copies of both lists later this evening.

Let me start by saying that effective immediately, foreign aid to those nations on List 2 ceases immediately and indefinitely. The money saved during the first year alone will pretty much pay for the costs of the Iraqi war. The American people are no longer going to pour money into third world hellholes and watch those government leaders grow fat on corruption.

Need help with a famine? Wrestling with an epidemic? Call France.

In the next few years, together with Congress, I will work to re-direct this money toward solving the vexing social problems we still have at home.

I am ordering the immediate withdrawal of all US forces from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and all other Middle Eastern nations. Leave us alone. Solve your own damn problems. Need help? Call Germany.

On that note, a word to terrorist organizations. Screw with us and we will hunt you down and eliminate you and all your relatives from the face of the earth. Thirsting for a gutsy country to terrorize? Try France, or maybe China.

Regarding the nation of Israel, I have this to say:
It seems like everybody has forgotten what happened to European Jewry during the 1930s and World War II. Our nation will never permit the destruction of Israel. No way, Jose. Nevertheless, to Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Hey, fellas, work out your own peace deal. Just note that Camp David is closed.

Also, bear in mind that Israel is on our first list, Palestinians on the 2nd. Yasser, if you continue to insist that Israel be completely destroyed, you will have presented them with their only defense being YOUR complete destruction. We will no longer restrain them.

I’m ordering the immediate severing of diplomatic relations with France, Germany, and Russia. Thanks for all your help, comrades. We are retiring from NATO as well. Bon chance, mes amis.

I have instructed the Mayor of New York City to begin towing the many UN diplomatic vehicles located in Manhattan with more than two unpaid tickets to sites where those vehicles will be stripped, shredded and crushed. I don’t give a damn about whatever treaty pertains to this. Pay your tickets tomorrow or watch your precious Benzes, Beamers, and limos be turned over to some of the finest chop shops in the world.

While we’re on the subject, that big, beautiful glass building on the East River would provide some fine office space that is much needed since the destruction of the World Trade Center. The ridiculous debating society of America’s self proclaimed enemies who are now our guests there will be encouraged to find a new “host Nation”. They are no longer welcome here.

They have proven themselves to be a bad joke. Every time we follow the U.N. we are forced to fight a limited war that we are not permitted to win. We leave a brutal tyrant still in charge who slaughters multitudes as soon as we leave. It has meant eternal chaos, protecting tyrants and penalizing free nations.

How many disasters of epic proportion must be suffered before we understand that International Government is a bad, unworkable idea. “World Peace” is not to be found there but in simple mutual respect and “minding our own business”.

A special note to our neighbors:
Canada is on List 2. Since we are going to be seeing a lot more of each other, you folks might want to try not pissing us off for a change. Mexico is also on List 2. President Fox and his entire corrupt government really need an attitude adjustment. I have a couple extra tank and infantry divisions sitting around. Guess where I’m gonna put ’em? Yep, border security. Oh, the United States is abrogating the NAFTA treaty—starting now.

It is time for America to focus on its own welfare and its own citizens. Illegal aliens will no longer qualify for government assistance. They will be deported.

Some people will accuse us of xenophobia as if our concern for the well being of our own families means that we hate foreigners. We don’t hate foreigners. We just want you to mind your own business and we’ll mind ours. Because we do not wish to support you forever does not make us Xenophobic. Some will accuse us of isolationism. I answer them by saying darn tootin’. Nearly a century of trying to help folks live a decent life around the world has only earned us the undying enmity of just about everyone on the planet.

We will develop energy independence. We will restructure our nation for its isolationist destiny. I will be sending legislation to Congress tomorrow proposing the first actions that that august body should take as we move in a new direction.

To the nations on List 2, a final thought. Drop dead. To the nations on List 1, a final thought. Thanks guys. We owe you. Call us any time.

God bless America.
Thank you and good night.

Thanks to Candy for leading me to this treasure.

    Heh. The american stockmarket and bond market are both floated largely by foreign investment whom invest in America because it is a large stable and virtually low barrier market. Saudi Arabia alone could devistate our bond market by pulling out its considerable holding. Or have you not noticed how the government always handles that country with kid gloves. Forcing other countries to chose between investing here and in the burgeoning new markets might find us in a much worse position. Particularly if Greenspan, or other top analysts are correct in stating that only by keeping a free and open economy can we hope to keep up progress and prevent a debilitating recession.

    Furthermore the NAFTA treaty has been more damaging to our partners than us from what I have heard. Yes we ship low paying jobs outside, but these virtual slave houses are owned by american interests whom take the profits. Not much good to the working guy whom lost his job, but even less to the person getting a couple dollars a day and no benifits.

    I do agree that I wish politicians would actually focus on meaningful issues instead of gay marriage, political campaigns and meaningless wars. What really needs to be done is fix problems such as trade, childcare, medicine, and employment. But the current administration has proven itself incapable of dealing with substantive issues. Tax cuts it can handle, expecially if it benifits wealthy people over those whome need assistance the most. And the lost revenue almost guaruntee the collapse of Medicare, Social security, and other governmental programs that needed stabalization now.

    By targeting the wrong enemies repeatedly this current aadministration has disgraced us. Why did we attack Afganistan and Iraq when the cell that attacked us was largely Saudi Arabian? Why is it that they feel that international treaty and law are meaningless and we can torture and kill as we please?

    I fear we make ourselves enemy number one but are blinded by patriotism as we do so. If another country was doing what we are doing it would have already suffered for it. I expect our economy will be feeling the fallout from this administration for decades to come.

  2. Why do I feel that Zack is parroting the ideology that permeates academia? Either that or he didn’t read the post.

    I didn’t see any reference to making our economy less open. The reference was to stop foreign aid payments to those who have not supported us.

    NAFTA is either good for the US or it is not. What is his point? In many countries, a couple of dollars a day is fantastic pay, benefits or not. Comparing US minimum wages to Third World country salaries ignores the differences in international cultures.

    Polititians focus on the issues that their constuents find meaningful. That is their function. If you don’t find these issues meaningful, get elected or better yet, help somebody else get elected. There are always choices to make. Either participate in the process or accept the results.

    There are those who are still waiting for a “just” war and believe that the terrorists are misunderstood patriots. Fortunately, there are many who ignore the sly gibbering of the news media and put their lives and reputations on the line to make the world a safer place.

    Even the presence of a few degenerates in the vast ranks of servicemen fails to deter the rest in their daily duties. The same is probably true in the Catholic Church, our universities and in Hollywood. Bad apples are a fact of life. You spot them, remove them and move on – unless you are a journalist.

    Our media shows its true colors by fixating on things that will reflect badly on America, while terrorists shoot a pregnant woman and her children, mutilate US civilians, and behead an American citizen with only a passing mention. Witness the fact that the only way you can see what progress is being made in Iraq is by reading blogs and a few local newspapers.

    However, I do agree with Zack on at least one point. I expect our economy will be feeling the fallout from this administration for decades to come.

    And I say, it’s a good thing, too!

    you are a one sided single minded person and need to learn to look at both sides of an issue. you arrogant asshole

  4. jake again says:

    however I do agree with you on the terrorist point if they screw with us we should not be nice and try to give them a far chance we should blow them up.
