The problem with America is we take over countries and then give them back without payment. All the oil in Iraq needs to go right onto US tankers for 25 years at a 20% discount for repayment. Our geologists gave Afghanisasssholystan a map [new, paid for by us] of the mineral wealth of the country worth about 500 billion dollars, and now the mining rights are sold to the Chinese - to build missiles to eradicate us in the near future. Every ounce of Lithium and copper should be reserved for US mining companies in perpetuity. We need to wake up a few dead English who knew how to fleece a country of its resources before cutting out in the name of 'freedom' All of our fantastic weapons are of no purpose if we cannot derive benefit from their use. We get shot at while building roads for Afghanistan. I wouldnt give them a 20 year old porta potty.
