Blum-Langtry 2008?

This morning I came across this great interview with William Blum. His account of what he imagines the first 4 days of a William Blum Presidency is exactly like how I would imagine my first four days (as I sometimes do, as embarrassing an admission as it is):
The first day, I'll apologize-publicly and sincerely-to all the widows and orphans, the impoverished and the tortured, to all the many millions of other victims of American imperialism. I would announce to the world that America's global military interventions have come to an end The second day, I would tell Israel that it is no longer the 51st state, but, oddly enough, a foreign country ... On the third day I would reduce the military budget by at least 90% and use the savings to pay reparations to the victims and repair the damage from the many American bombings, invasions and sanctions. There would be more than enough money. One year's US military budget is equal to more than $20,000 per hour for every hour since Jesus was born.

On the fourth day, I'll be assassinated."

I would hope that Blum wouldnt last for four days.Taken out in the woods and be lost forever in a hail of bullets and napalm.

America doesnt hate You.You hate Yourself.America has a very violent past indeed.It has this past because of the Hitlers and other Madmen who would take You and make You their slaves.You wouldnt be allowed to post on the internet because there would be no internet.You couldnt worship to whatever God it is that You worship.You would more than likely end up being in their military where You would kill for the hell of it.You people need to open Your eyes to the madness of whats really going on.The United States of America will never back down from a fight.She will however try to talk peace and show these madmen like saddam the errors of their ways and then she will punch them in the mouth.Being a retired 82nd Airborne Ranger and a retired Firefighter I take great offense at people like You and your hero blum.We still fight for your right to run your mouth's.Who knows,Maybe America will one day get tired of people like you and punch you in the mouth.Thats what you need.I would recommend to people like you to go to church and get some love in your heart.You talk crazy like this out in the real world and you run into a patriot like Myself there and You will have some real trouble.You know like America punching you in the mouth.good day ooohhrrraaahhhhh.United States Second only to God.Also doing Gods work since 1776.
