Everbody keeps asking me, 'Old Knudsen, how do you build an Empire' and I tells them, hard werk, lies and oppression.
The Romans had an Empire, the British had one too. You go to other cuntries, fuck them up, get whatever resources they have and then when they get sick of it or your power starts to slip you get the fuck out. Or like Obama you say you are getting out but keep some troops there and when times are better you increase the number.
You don't talk about the increase so people only remember you going on about bringing them home.
