Right, totally not a result of neo-liberalist interventionist policy. How many barrels of crude have been exported from Kosovo so far?
Was that supposed to rebut the quote? Because I thought Kosovo was full of white people. I think the US only got in to the extent they did because the others in NATO did anyway. I know they mostly rule nato, but ocassionally you have to go along, especially when you don't have to commit ground troops.
It rebuts the quote, dipshit, because it shows an example of a war without a resource goal.
But the quote, asshole, only says the US needs a resource interest to fight for nonwhites, because it doesn't care about oppressed nonwhites. The implication, I would have thought from that quote, was that the US would care about oppressed white people, like one might find in Kosovo.
Right, when they commit troops to former yugoslavia its because they're white. Why they'd care about that is never actually explained, but lets go on the assumption that the US congress is made up of KKK members.
What resources does kosovo have? fuck nothing. Yet, with no real reward, we felt the need to STOP THE HORRIBLE GENOCIDE, including committing, for the time, pretty new hardware. (so there could have been a desire to test shit out ala the Nazis and Spain. It was the first time the B-1B and the B-2 were used in combat IIRC. Unsure about the B-2 there.)
What resources does the Sudan have? It's about the same status as Kosovo. Lots of stuff, but nothing in HUGE quantities you can't get from somewhere else. Yet from 1955 to 1972, there was an active civil war there. That's actually longer than active combat in Vietnam. Four presidents were in office for that, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon. They did? Fuck all nothing.
The current problem has been running since 1983, with the exception of a six month cease fire negotiated by...Jimmy Carter, but in 1996. So now we have as US presidents: Regan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama. They've done? Fuck all nothing. Oh, we say "tut tut" a lot, and make the sad face. But really? commit actual troops to that shit?
Honkey please, it's just a bunch of darkies with nothing we need. Killin' each other's what they like to do. It's african foosball or something, fuck if I know.
Pick any one of a dozen countries in africa. The assholes in charge could eat babies in a press conference, and we'd do naught but Robin Williams' joke about British Bobbies: "STOP! or I'll say STOP again!"
North Korea? Anyone? anyone? fuck, there's confirmed cannibalism. Them yellow bastards is EATIN' EACH OTHER 'CAUSE THEY'S STARVIN' and we do????
So yeah. If the population aren't honkies, and there's no natural resources, or they didn't attack us, aka, intimate we have smaller dicks, then no, we won't do shit.
