"The citizens of this great nation generously give of their scarce resources in order to assist various other peoples of the Earth, and they get defecated upon for their trouble. If we take a hands-off approach, we are denounced as greedy and miserly. If we assume a hands-on approach, we are denounced as imperialist opportunists ([Brits] should be able to appreciate this); in either event, we are condemned. Frankly, we're fed up with it. We will no longer tolerate aggression and cowardice. We fully intend to call those responsible for such violence to account, and, if the rest of the world (or the French, for that matter) doesn't like it, to hell with 'em." -- " Lord Covington" speaking about the United States on the Citizens of the Imperium boards
