When it comes to being an American ally, you never get rewarded for doing the right thing. After compiling a lengthy list of what Romania has done to try and get on America’s Visa Waiver Program, I realized that I needed to produce something a bit more visual.
Therefore, here’s a graphic that anyone can understand:
|Joined “Coalition of the Willing” to attack Iraq in 2003|
|Year withdrew troops from Iraq||2009||2005||2008|
|Allowed CIA torture centers on its soil|
|Supports 2% of GDP for NATO|
|Soldiers in Afghanistan in 2017|
|Has American missile base on its soil|
|Regularly praised by American government officials|
|Russian taught in public schools|
|Opposes sanctions against Russia|
|Received Putin on state visit post-Crimea|
|Member of Visa Waiver Program|
You do the math, folks!
