The Big Storm has wreaked havoc on the USA. Once the waters recede and the fires are quelled, the true extent of the damage will become apparent. Then the USA needs to take stock and begin rebuilding damaged lives and infrastructure. No one should resent the fact that the USA should concentrate on itself for a change.
The USA should look at its involvement in many countries and pull back. The need at home is huge and the resources it expends on overseas ‘adventures’ is needed at home. For many USA citizens, the next few weeks are going to be tough. I know they will dig deep and pull together. Has not history shown that once challenged, the American spirit has few equals when the chips are down?
Is this not a time for a reassessment about the USA’s place in the world? Some of its massive foreign ‘aid’ package could be seen as a form of imperialism, driven by industrial and economic needs, owned by a tiny segment of the American people. Those who pay are the struggling lower and middle classes who have been duped for decades about the real intent of the backers of USA foreign policy.
Now it is time to rebalance and give back to the majority. Rebuild for American jobs and pull back from failed policies. No one thanks the USA for their ‘policing’ of the world. That job belongs to the ‘collectivity’ of nations---- the UN!
