Middle east fast foods from America…
It’s really surprising when I speak with some people about the countries that are having to live without electric, water and normal things that we in America take for granted.
How so many people believe that these countries are still living in caves or grass huts and when there told that they live in places such as we do. Many homes much nicer even as well as have all the fast food places that we even have. If and when Russia decides to attack then all of us will see exactly what we have done to others when it hits here at home. When will this take place? Oh, just a guess it will be before the next president takes office in January 2017. In fact I feel it will be sooner than that, but why not give a few months just to be sure.
Many of us will not live of course as the world will be in a major change as well as a take over by mobs of people fighting one another until the waring countries come in and clean up what is left. Which countries? Russia and China of course. Nuke’s? No afraid we will be hit with something that will knock out all electrical power systems. After all no power no launches. So many people say we have much more than any other country. We sure do, but not what will be needed when this goes down. All I can do is warn you so enjoy the time that you have left and good luck in the future. Here is a reply from one of the fast foods that departed when the war was taken by the USA to Syria. The one Russia was to protect?
In 2006, Kentucky Fried Chicken opened Syria’s first American restaurant in Damascus. The franchise weathered more than two and a half years of war, but this month, it became one of the last foreign businesses in the country to close its doors.

The picture of a quintessential American brand thriving in an “Axis of Evil” country currently targeted by U.S. sanctions may seem contradictory at first blush. Yet, in the Middle East, people have spent up to seven times their daily income on a bucket of fried chicken. Even in the Gaza Strip, where the average income hovers around $2 (U.S.) per day, KFC remains popular. The KFC branch in Al-Amish, Egypt has smuggled in deliveries through Hamas’s tunnels for $30 a meal. The United Arab Emirates, a country that has roughly the same population as New Jersey, opened its 100th KFC branch this May. Libya and Iraq crave KFC no less: Knockoffs of the restaurant— “Uncle Kentucky” in Tripoli and Fallujah—thrive in places where American ideas may not be winning hearts and minds, but they are winning stomachs.
