Saddam's Half-Brother and 29 Other Baathists Turned Over to Iraq By Syria | Main | Sean Penn Responds to a Chris Rock Joke About Why the Chicken Crossed the Road

Ahhh... Memories

I used to post quite a bit in The Perfect World. One of my favorite past-times there was to insult Europeans and Canadians.

If you'll indulge me, I wrote this not at all fair-and-balanced reply to a European correspondent whining about American power and unilateralism:

Europe is safe because you are a weak-willed, disarmed, defeated people who have are in the strange position of not needing a military only because America has served as your defacto army for 50 years.

You have the childish idea that your freedom and safety come through your "enlightened views" and "diplomacy" and "mutually-reassuring treaties." Nope. Your freedom and security derive from the United States.

You think that your fairy-land solutions can work for us. No, they can't work for us. We are not born appeasers like you are; we have not been emasculated by living for 50 years as client states. You gave up your sovereignty and nationhood long ago; we held on to ours, and we intend to keep it.

Canada, like Europe, puts great faith in being a "soft power." A "soft power" is dependent on the power and strength of America for its freedom and security; and it also doesn't have enough military force (or economic force, for that matter) to make a difference in the world. Hence, Canada is safe. Who would think of attacking Canada?

Who, for that matter, would notice if Canada were attacked?

We do not have the luxury, as you do, of being not-worth-attacking. We ARE worth attacking (as was rather demonstrably proven through the nineties, culminatinat on 9/11), and our thinking must of course be shaped by this reality.

Our reality. Our reality in which we are the First and Last Targets of Terrorism.

Not your pitiful, wretched, ultrafeminized reality, in which no one would bother attacking you at all, because frankly, you don't stand for anything at all. Destroying you would advance no cause, for you neither champion nor thwart any cause.

You simply continue to live in your socialist, America-subsidized dream-world. And that's fine.

But do me a favor. Stop telling Americans to join you in that dream-world. We don't have the fucking luxury.

Edit: I thought better of reposting something else. Funny, yeah, but bound to be taken the wrong way by some.
