Allahu Akbar, Motherfuckers

From LiveLeak:

More and more war videos like this are uploaded every day.  Videos like this one and the one below,: http://www.orbscorbs.com/2015/06/hard-novorossia.html, remind me of the Prime Directive on Star Trek:

"In the fictitious universe of Star Trek, the Prime Directive is the guiding principle of the United Federation of Planets. The Prime Directive, used in four of the five Star Trek-based series, prohibits Starfleet personnel from interfering with the internal development of alien civilizations. This conceptual law applies particularly to civilizations which are below a certain threshold of technological, scientific and cultural development; preventing starship crews from using their superior technology to impose their own values or ideals on them. Since its introduction in the first season of the original Star Trek series, it has served as the focus of numerous episodes of the various series. As time travel became a recurring feature in the franchise, the concept was expanded as a Temporal Prime Directive, prohibiting those under its orders from interfering in historical events." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_Directive

It's not as bad as giving loaded machine guns to monkeys, but it's not that far away.  Most of these people led a simple life. Hostility with other tribes was common.  Enter the U.S. and other countries looking for oil.  Of course, the indigenous people resent this intrusion.  They quickly learn how to operate weapons of war.  Never-ending war.  Then our troops are landed and charged with regaining control of the people and the oil.

So many of our troops develop PTSD from these "non-wars." More than all the other wars combined.

Given these facts, I've  decided to run for President on the "Pull-Out Platform."

The platform is simple: pull out all of our troops from foreign countries and return them home.  Let the other countries solve their problems and we'll solve ours. And no more foreign aid, period.

I believe that the National Guard and the Coast guard should watch over our boundaries.

However, we should also keep the largest standing army and the best.  The same goes for the Navy, Marines, Army, and Air Force.  They should always be kept on the cutting edge of technology.  They must be large and technologically advanced enough to discourage any attack against us, and to annihilate our enemies of they're foolish enough to attack.
