Ungreatful Indonesia

From Boortz:

After weeks of pouring millions in humanitarian and military aid into their country, the government of Indonesia has decided in their infinite wisdom to thank the United States. And how is the world's most populous Muslim nation going to do this?

They're kicking us out. That's right...having used us for what they needed, the America-haters are purging the great Satan. How nice. Vice President Jusuf Kalla announced that all foreign troops must leave by the end of March. The insults continued, as he said: "Three months are enough. The sooner, the better. In the future, there will be no need for the foreign military presence." Oh really?

We'll have to remember that the next time Indonesia needs something, or another natural disaster occurs there. Already, in response, the United States has scaled back plans to base Marines in that country and pulled out the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln that was off its shores. Indonesia is seeking debt relief...perhaps we should think twice before helping them any further?

Thanks for nothing, Indonesia. We'll have to remember this one. And we should also remember that no good deed goes unpunished.

Also ... remember that Indonesia is the world's largest Muslim nation. Think about it.
