"Take up the White Man's burden And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better, The hate of those ye guard."............I cannot claim with certitude what Kipling meant by this. But the poem does in fact remind me (not in racial way, of course) of Europe and America.; the fact that it was US who got rid of Milosevic, the fact that it was US who dropped the bombs in Pakistan (this, in a successful raid to foil the terrorist plans that were targeted for Britain and France), the fact that it is US who continue to house 50,000 soldiers in Eastern Europe to protect the folks/spare them the cost, and of the way that the Europeans continue to not only not appreciate it but to denigrate us as well. I am telling you here, if it were strictly up to this guy, I'd inform them, "You're frigging on your own, peeps."
