Mr. Michael John Moroney
Honorary Consul General
Palau Consulate Hawaii
1154 Fort Street Suite 300
Honolulu, HI 96813
Dear Mr. Moroney:
In order that the United States not be the only country in the United Nations to refuse to condemn Israel for the massacre of peace activists aboard the Gaza flotilla, it will have to purchase Palau’s vote.
Palau can hold out for any price it wishes. The United States provided more than $7 trillion to the bank bailouts, and that’s chump change for us.
I suggest that you not settle for less than twice that amount. That should allow you to purchase Dubai, Monaco, Lichtenstein, Iceland, and Greece, along with a few less developed countries.
Congratulations to Palau on becoming the most powerful nation in the world, and I hope you will soon be the wealthiest. Opportunities like this don’t come along every day, so please don’t squander it.
Mark E. Smith
