China and Russia... go figure

Sanction on Mugabe and his party were not passed. Apparently China and Russia thinks it would be best if Zimbabwe handled it's own problems without international interference. You know, like they have always done. We'll just have to go in and clean house, like we do with everything else the world lets get out of hand before any action can be taken. Hasn't anyone learned from Darfur, Somalia, Sudan, etc.?!?! Once again, history is our greatest resource and nobody seems to use it.

Even though isolationism is not the answer to all our woes, I wish we could practice it a bit. Fuck the rest of the world for a while. I mean, we're already struggling, why worsen it by adding trillions more in another offensive? Sorry for those poor people over there but my family comes first.

I agree we need to stop forcing, be like us, on the rest of the world. We should just lead by example and hope they follow. No country told us how create a country after the American Revolution, we did what was best for us. If other people in the world do not want to stand up for personal liberty, property rights and security, then too bad. If they are not willing to risk anything they will gain nothing.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Unfortunately, we will see more from them in the future. Remember a couple of months ago when Russia sold all of it's aviation technology to China? The Chinese will be able to accomplish what the Russians couldn't, mass production. In 20-30-40 years, i see Chinese aerospace being sold to different factions. I wonder how much knowledge they took from the Boeing projects?

I half have to wonder if one of China's big plans is that by accepting all of our contracts to make our stuff, that they'll eventually have all technology to just kick the crap out of everyone. They, after all, don't abide by international copyright and patent laws.
