What a weird thread! I wish the destruction of no country ; what I deeply wish is the immediate transformation of petroleum into water, so that clean energies may triumph. I'm pretty sure that these technologies are far much advanced than officially admitted, but that the geopolitical consequences of a "We don't need your oil anymore" to the OPEC countries are deemed too frightening by the Western leaders, thence, that this knowledge is quenched until further notice. Call me paranoid or conspiracies-obsessed if you want.
Kosovo is spelled with one 's', liblabdog. Women and children suffer in any war. I doubt that americans solved anything over there... Look at all the racism and hate crime in America, neo-nazis, KKK and all that...seems like it is creating much sufferering amongst the minority women and children in the states.
As for the way you addressed Murphee, it is very rude and mean-spirited, a gentleman wouldn't speak that way to a lady.
I don't think any country deserves this fate. There are always repercussions....and everyone is affected one way or another.
About many voting for america, it proves that people are unhappy with its policies. But no matter how BAD it is, it could be WORSE! Can't it? There is a saying that goes, "the devil you know". It is an empire like all other empires, it will crumble, but what will be the next empire.... (maybe for another thread)
You must have chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star. ~ Nietzsche
You're paying USAGE taxes. The R&D was provided for by Uncle Sam. ...A simple Thank you would suffice.
Hey, guns or no guns, you Europeans are going to be overrun by Muslims. They'll use box-cutters, or whatever else they might find. ...Or their most potent weapon, having lots of babies on European soil. I doubt any one of their children will employ your eventual "child".
...You'll be LUCKY to get Chinese immigrants in a few years after we finish upgrading their economy. ...Hope you buy lots of Chinese goods, because those are my Stocks your boosting up.
Don't worry too much. Europe will always have a place in our hearts, (and in our mail-order bride industry.)
You guys are sickening cowards. You have lots of fancy names for your inaction. But it's really just cowardice.
Even if you stick a European in a United Nations uniform, and put them within 1 mile of the problem, they will continue to sit there with their thumbs up their butts, just like they did in Sarejevo.
It's not Nationalistic Yugoslavians who died. ...It's innocent women and children. Civilians. ...There's no universal sense of Justice in war. Just the worst kind of racism enacted upon, where decent people die, and vicious killers live to propagate their DNA.
I'm so glad you're comfortable in Europe's complete ineffectualness. ...It's part of the reason, we're pretty much going to let the Muslims colonize you.
Yeah, we're multiethnic. But we all speak the same friggin language. ...You might be familiar with it. It's the one you're reading right now.
...And I think you can look to both Japan and Germany, as examples of two countries that didn't mind loosing a war to the United States. ...And South Korea is one of the most advanced countries in the world, for a country it's size, it has a lot of power.
In fact, the countries that loose wars to us, do better than the ones who win. ...Look how long it's taking Vietnam to improve. ...And only after they let American industry back in.
Oh good, we can use all the friends we can get. ....Who aren't pussies.
stop acting like a pigheaded american ;D i'm sure other countries are capable of puttin together their own internet ... its so complicated and all *rolls eyes*
LibLabDog, stop making us look like idiots. You sound just like the ignorant upper middles or trailer trash, who go to other nations and disrespect their culture, and walk around like a bunch of idiots while we decent working people support either your trailer culture, or your leeching effete upper middle class sensibilities.
(Ironically I used to live in a trailer park)
America will have a difficult period due to the looming peak oil crisis that will force us back into localized living, and sustainability. Many of us Americans do live luxuriously, and do not realize it. The economic downturn or collapse won't effect the EU as badly as Asia but it will hurt...alot, it will cripple China, India, and other places more. Also, overpopulation will end as people no longer have access to foreign aid, cheap fertilizer, and other things from other nations.
(Maybe not China, because they are working extensively on non-Petroleum energy)
I also don't like diluted Americanism fed to our children and then spread to other nations in turn destroying their cultures like it had what was once ours. The rising Paganism in the US, and the EU fills me with hope. What was considered a resourceful "can-do" attitude, and working ethic has now been replaced by McDonald's, jeans, and bad movies, and music.
