The United States of America being the parents and other Countries are the children! You should really try it, its beyond hilarious, it is almost a perfect analogy. Some families have children they favor over others, so they will get a different type of punishment or reprimand.
I heard that the new president of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, promised not to fire any missles for any reason. For this promise he would receive some 240 tons of food aid.
When we look at other countries and apply this analogy, you will see that what I say is true! Other countries are treated like the child who is disowned and thereby being totally cut off from all love and assistance.
Just thought that I would share this insight with my fellow Americans.
