There, I've said it. Can't wait to see the responses.
squigly1 is this what you were looking for?
Something some of you seem to overlook, the US will forever more be in a pre emptive mode to prevent another attack. And frankly if you don't like it perhaps if the mother country were the site of an act of terror of that magnitude would change your perspective.
Iraq: oil issue aside, is and will always be a threat to it's neighbors which of course include Israel and I don't see any other country standing up for them. ( deserved or not )
XM has said all that needs to be
"Suggesting that the innocent slaughter of thousands of civilians from Canada the US and some fifty other countries was in any way shape or form "understandable" is outlandish.
57 do you think that you can negotiate with a regime such as what exists in certain terror laden countries? Not me but more power to you.
Yes USSR and USA made gains. Of course either one could still Nuke the world ten times over couldn't they?
"Defense Shield &#8211; USA will do what it likes&#8230;"
And why not? It's called defense.
"Tariffs on Steel &#8211; keep those inefficient USA mills running (get the vote) "
I suppose you are blind then to the Japanese dumping of steel.
"SUVs &#8211; keep on trucking and burning that gasoline as fast as possible."
I like living in a country where I am given freedom of choice. What someone does with it is their business.
If you wish to drive a little car good for you. Doesn't mean I have to. Although I am really keen on the new Mini's. But I suppose they wouldn't pass your efficiency standards as they are to much fun and fun equals MPG. Little car or not.
Funny thing though those F1 cars huh? How do you step down to watch that utter waste of fossil fuels while watching thanks to some coal powered generator plant.
Talk the talk, walk the walk.
Freedom not Marxism for me thanks.
Lets say China invaded Japan. Who do you think goes in? Would the US not live up to it's obligations?
What if Canada were attacked? Who do you think would step up?
Sorry if you don't like the way of life you currently enjoy. I know I do.
Of course greenhouse gases etc. are a concern but one could also live with the Mennonites to further the cause.
I suspect kingsclear will be weighing in with his anti US views now. Oops, we have already done that some time ago during the Supreme Court dealings.
