Find your balls, PLEASE

Dear Brown, Bush, Harper, Koehler, Koizumi, Napolitano, Putin and Sarkozy:

To Whom It May Concern (being that you guys seldomly think on your own)

Where are your balls?
You did not get elected, STOP, let me rephrase, you did not manipulate your respective systems, democratic or otherwise, to slap erstwhile governemnts on the cheek. You are all wimps, sanctions don't really accomplish anything in the near future, so in a situation were lives are being lost, one would think that you would take a personal interest and not leave it up to your foreign policy speech writers.

I normally do not openly scold current leaders of nations but the 8 of you combined would not stand up against my 3 year old nephew in a spitting contest. Honestly, you do nothing.
You have nukes and bitch about those who want nukes because you are scared that they might actually have the guts to use it.
You have money and bitch about those who want money because you are frightened that they will stop looking up to you.
You have power and bitch about those who want power because you KNOW that given the chance they will actually be worthy of their paragraph in the history books.

I've been doing this whole political thing for about two seconds, okay let me be truthful, it has been 5 years but you have been breathing politics forever since law school or your years in the KGB, CIA or whatever 3 letter acroynm your country uses to justify torture. You know the stats, you know the history, do I need to be the one to tell you that there were fewer coup attempts in the era of sanctions than in the previous decades? Do I need to remind you of the genocide that took place in Rwanda, 4 months, that was all it took to kill over 700,000 people. It takes you two weeks to create a foreign policy statement that shoots an elephant with a BBgun.

I'm done.

Let me be poetic

Economic sanctions did not make Iraq fall
and just so you know, Iran is still standing tall.
Castro has outlasted the son of JFK
and all you can lay claim to is Gitmo Bay
Sanctions do not work

If you goal is to starve the average person
and let innocents get hanged for treason
If you want to fractionalize the future central government
by making thugs and warloads permanent
Keep on.

If fueling the propaganda machine
is your greatest wish and fondest dream
If the increase in rape victims gives you pleasure
and you revel in the blackmarket sale of a country's treasure
Keep on, keep, keeping on.

Sincerely and furiously planning to ...
Your dearest friend and greatest critic

PS: Brown and Bush stop rubbing your crotch and giving each other pats on the back, I arranged the names alphabetically, not according to perceived power.



Tell me though, what option does the US have to save face on this issue?

I doubt if the US can do a thing to salvage the situation.I like what you wrote and how you wrote it.It has strength.
It is amazing how strong emotions can bring out the poet/writer in someone.

@ Solomonsydelle: i dunno seriously. I am trying to remember the days when people actually got their hands dirty for altruistic purposes but i can't. After the isolationism of the 30s and pre Pearl Harbor 40s i wonder how did we really deal with the Iron Curtain want really prompted the cold war to end was it really embargos against Mother Russia and the USSR?
so yeah
i am going to have to do some history research and find out.

@ stuck in my throat o: what is stuck in your throat.

I agree with solomonsydelle.
and truth is, Bush and all those ppl you mentioned arent exactly virtuous people so i doubt they'll do what they think is right. They have their pride to protect and unfortunately, to protect their prides will cost thousands of innocent ppl their lives. But like i said, they dont care.
this is going to get much worse before it gets better (if it ever will).
