US Decider-in-Chief George ‘Walter’ Bush is visiting “moderate” Indonesia, a land where seething Islamic idiocy is boiling just under the surface. And sometimes- more and more often it seems- that idiocy is on full-frontal mode.
Today’s reminder of the Indo-Islamic Insane Asylum was the usual and predictable cauldron of anti-American sentiment Bush had waiting for him:
…Bush drew a different reaction Sunday at his upcoming stop in Indonesia, where thousands angrily protested America's policy in the Middle East and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
While President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono is a close U.S. ally in the war on terror, Bush is highly unpopular in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation.
Here’s something those ungrateful Indonesian bastards should try to keep in mind as they go stark raving mad (yet again) with Bush Derangement Syndrome…free medical care given to the masses of the poor in their miserable country, courtesy of the evil imperialist US military, to the tune of over $17 million this year alone:
Earlier this year, the (US Navy Hospital ship) Mercy spent six months in Indonesia, treating 61,000 patients. Most of the Indonesians received some medicine, or some dental work. But about two percent involved some surgery. As a result of the Mercy's visit, favorable attitudes towards the U.S. by Indonesians doubled (to 30 percent, so more work is needed.) The Indonesians were getting American quality medicine, which explains the average cost for treating each patient; $280.
61,000 Indonesians times $280 equals $17,080,000.
That’s right America…here are your tax dollars again at work, underwriting medical care for poor Muslims who still end up hating us. Now the Indonesian people, by these figures, are ‘only’ 70% anti-American. But if the US Government can’t scrape up enough resources to keep sending back the medics, the ‘disapproval rating’ is sure to creep up again.
Can you say ‘jizya’, folks?
