So Barry, here's wot y'all gotta do: Y'all gotta make sure we don't do the Nigerian, free market, swindle the po folks an take all the money to Switzerland model that the good ol USA seems to like so much.
'Wot's the big deal, anyways,' yo may say. 'The corps got the money and we got the muscle - so full speed ahead.'
Here da deal - jes think on an Afghanistan wid ten times the money now and xactly same income distribution, graft and wot all.
Think the Talis pissed now, jes y'all wait til then.
Barry, wot y'all gotta do is make sure ALL the money stays in Ghanistan - course it'll be crooked, but they be some cash for the Talis and the police and the schools and wot not.
Bout our national security Barry, if'n we don help them folks, they gonna come kill us.
Pretty simple, Barry. Help us out here.
