2 twenty foot hurricane fences with razor wire & 5000 volts separated about 50 yards with land mines in between should do the trick.
Don't forget the mote to keep the tunneling to a minimum.
Wow, what a great idea, I agre I agree so you don't have to call me asshole either... yeah yeah keep them dirty peole away yeah, I agree with you you are so brillant... Are you going to kiss me now that I agree with you?
Don't worry I will bathe before you kiss me so you won't catch anything from the foreigner.... yeah yeah am so proud of you at least you wrote your opinion instead of cut and paste as usual, and boy what an intelligent idea...
Oh I just remembered, I need to come and do some shopping for Xmas. Can you please sign my visa for sponsorship? I will make sure that when I get there I won't bother you much, I will even sleep in your garage so I wont desturb your pets or anything.... deal?
I apologize for intruding into what seems to be a private debate...
In your sacastic reply, you act as if you have a Right to visit a foreign country. Please describe from where this right originates--Do you have freedom to wander all over the earth? Are nations not allowed to have borders. You act as if borders are somehow insignificant.
Ah ah ah ah ah ah LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
Look who's talking! The last time I checked I saw US bases in the Saudi desert... Do you guys by chance have some Saudi bases in the Western Plains? Let me present it in another way: When an American comes here for a business visit it would take him five minutes to sign a piece of paper, no other questions asked, and he is on his way. When I send an associate to your country to negotiate a deal it takes him weeks of back and forth visits to your embassy and he will have to go through a background check worthy of a security clearence so he can get a one week visa to do his business. In the mean time the American can stay and extend his stay at will. In some other Arab countries say UAE or Jordan all an American has to do is pay a few dollars at arrival to have his passport stamped and off he goes. The last time I checked, Jordanians go through a lengthy process to go to the US.
So to answer your question, your administration made sure that you have the right to go anywhere which is a good thing but that same administration does not see it as a two way deal. Tell me if this not a superiority complex. Am I wrong with this assessment?
Now, why should I not have the same freedoms as you to wonder the earth, not just the US? huh?
Did the USA sneak across the Saudi border and set-up those bases?
Any American civilians out there setting-up IED's to dynamite Jordanian soldiers?
Don't mix the two issues Bot, he asked me about borders and rights not behavior and acts. So to answer your first question can the Saudi have the audacity to ask for a base within the US? I will give an example, after WWII the US set up bases in Germany, guess what! The Germans actually had military representation in Washington with unforms and vehicles that go with it, I know this for a fact. What's wrong with that picture? Are they better than us because they are Europeans?
Wrong analogy! We didn't have a war with Saudi so our basing military had to have been at Saudi invitation.
The Royal family asked for and received and paid for a huge military base in Saudi Arabia BEFORE there was a problem with Iraq (for you conspiracy theorists, does this mean that we were gunning for Iraq in the 1980's?). The USA did not invade Saudi Arabia. After GW I, we began scaling-back our military presence in Saudi Arabia and shifting in to Kuwait (conspiracy theorists, please interpret that!). By the time of GW II we had almost entirely left the facilities in Saudi Arabia.
Every government with which we exchange ambassadors may have uniformed personnel atatched to tehir embassy. These are called declared military (or something liek that). Sort of like legal spies. They must obey the laws of teh host countries but have limited diplomatic immunity. They are often invited to observe military activities. I remember seeing lots of foreign soldiers on base when I was in the USN, usually escorted by an officer or noncom of equal rank, except for NATO which were given pretty much free access.
The reason that we may have more restrictive requirements for entry to the USA from some countries is that some people from some of these countries have demonstrated the will, intent, and ability to KILL AMERICANS. We don't like that.
So if you're a middleasterner coming for a visit, I hope our INS and border people give you a thorough inspection and questioning. I hope they refuse entry to you if you don't have the proper paperwork. Or even if they just don't like the way you look.
It's a burden I can live with.
