Found this story from last week funny (see below). Although it's a spoof it just about sums up America's foreign policy on, well most things. Why have they suddenly stuck their oar in anyway? I mean the FBI throughout their investigation still haven't worked out that the F in FIFA doesn't stand for Soccer! FIFA has been corrupt for 20 years or more and then all of a sudden when they realise RUSSIA are hosting the next world cup they develop a sudden interest in football and how corrupt it is.

McCain Urges Military Strikes Against FIFACalling the Obama Administration’s actions against the soccer organisation “weak and ineffective” Senator John McCain on Thursday proposed military action to “dismantle and destroy FIFA once and for all.”
“These are people who only understand one thing: force” McCain said on the floor of the United States Senate. “We must make FIFA taste the vengeful might and fury of the United States military.”
McCain said that he was “completely unimpressed” by the Department of Justice’s arrests of several top FIFA lieutenants this week, calling the action “the kind of Band-Aid solution that this Administration, sadly, has become famous for.”
“Rounding up a few flunkies in a hotel is meaningless when the leader of FIFA remains at large” he said. “I will follow Sepp Blatter to the gates of Hell.”
McCain requested a four-billion-dollar aid package for moderate elements within global soccer, and said that the United States should be prepared to put boots on the ground in Switzerland.
Calling the use of force against FIFA “long overdue” he placed the blame for the group’s alarming growth squarely on the shoulders of the White House. “Barack Obama created FIFA” he said.
