Yes, it’s that time of year again. That time where the biggest nation of egotistical self-righteous bullshitters take time out to celebrate just how wonderful their great nation is…
The leaders of the Free World. The defenders of Freedom’s Future. The country that leads and defends by maintaining armed forces sufficient to fight two wars simultaneously.
Yes, America the Beautiful will keep you safe – but only if you do what they tell you.
The land of the free – as long as you do what their government tells you.
The home of the Brave – provided that they can rope their allies in to do the fighting for them.
And have you ever noticed? Americans don’t fight wars in their own country. They always go overseas to fuck up somebody else’s country. No wonder they got so wound up over 9/11. It just doesn’t happen in the good ol’ U S of A.
I have nothing against Americans per se. However I think their country stinks with hypocrisy and I’d like them to remove their bases from the UK. They’re trigger happy bastards and I don’t trust them to act in my best interests. I think it was John Simpson who, went he told his father he was going to be a war correspondent, was given this advice : “Don’t stand in front of the Americans!”
Yes, God bless America – and God help the rest of us!
