KERRY: Arabs Will Finance Our War - Video

“With respect to Arab countries offering to bear costs and to assess, the answer is profoundly yes,” Kerry said. “They have. That offer is on the table.”

Asked by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) about how much those countries would contribute, Kerry said they have offered to pay for all of a full invasion.

“In fact, some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we’ve done it previously in other places, they’ll carry that cost,” Kerry said. “That’s how dedicated they are at this.

That's all I have to say about that

US Mercenary Military ?

A mercenary is a person who takes part in an armed conflict, who is not a national or a party to the conflict and is "motivated to take part in the hostilities essentially by the desire for private gain and, in fact, is promised, by or on behalf of a party to the conflict, material compensation substantially in excess of that promised or paid to combatants of similar ranks and functions in the armed forces of that Party". (wikipedia)

Where have I heard that before?

Echoes of "Iraqi oil will pay for rebuilding the country."

The those nations should

Then those nations should issue Letters of Marque and Reprisal, let privateers do it.

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

can't do that

then people would realize we don't need the state for these things. The "Protection" racket is still the primary scam of the state. They must protect the racket.


Liberty = Responsibility

How disgusting

“In fact, some of them have said that if the United States is prepared to go do the whole thing the way we’ve done it previously in other places"

I mean I thought we were ashamed and embarrassed about "the way we've done it previously in other places".

Just crazy stuff right here.
