Also bear in mind that the Russians won't hesitate to stick it to the Americans if it looks to them like Europe is going to become the next great power bloc.
ROTFL. A nation starved for hard currency like Russia won't "stick it to" the one nation that, more than any, that can give them that hard currency-the United States. And guess what, Europe has not, is not, and will not, become the next great power. Together, they don't even equal the power of the United States. You're really having delusions of grandeur these days, aren't you, SAS23?
Without oil, your industries grind to a halt and it's sayonara buddies!
And that's what you want, isn't it SAS23: the U.S. crippled, incapacitated and on it's knees-ISN'T IT?? Why is that SAS23? Do you have the testicles to even answer that question? WHY? It's an obsession with you almost as strong as that against a certain mideast country? Why this desire to see the U.S. humbled? Not that it will happen, bright boy, but why this incessant hatred? Enlighten us, will you?
As for the much-touted US involvement in the last two world wars ... don't forget that your Ambassador here (Joe Kennedy) supported the IRA and the Nazis...
You are a propoganda machine, I'll give you that. 1. Our "much-touted" involvement in WWII saved Britian's rear end, even with their heroic stance against the Nazis. 2. Without our "much-touted" involvement, Western Europe would not have been liberated-at least not the way it was. Britian, for all it's courage and resiliance, did not have the military might to free the continent by itself. It's possible the Iron Curtain would have extended to Calais. 3. Joe Kennedy did not run American foreign policy, did he? Many Americans supported the Nazi's-Charles Lindberg comes to mind, but in the end, the U.S. sacrificed equipment-and more importantly, the lives of many young men, to defeat the Nazis, AND save Europe from Nazism.
So much for your lame propoganda.
Roosevelt from bringing America into the war. Another ardent Nazi supporter was of course Charles Lindbergh. Of course, you guys are trying to make up for being so late for the last two world wars by starting the next one!
We weren't late for anything, SAS23. It seems that Europe just can't help itself in starting World Wars, and we didn't want to get involved in YOUR messes, did we? But we did, when thus attacked, and both times, we helped bail your asses out didn't we? Stick it up your SAS, bright boy. Europe leads the world in starting World Wars, so deal with it.
Incidentally, it was Roosevelt who sold out Polant to Stalin at Yalta ...
Nice try, SAS23, but by the time Yalta happened, it was a fait accompli, unless the U.S. wanted to see millions more of their young men-and the U.K.'s-killed in a war on Russia. The sellout came from France and the U.K., who appeased Herr Hitler from 1936 until 1939, and by that time, Poland was history.
Yes, we do have to bear some responsibility for the creation of Israel, which includes reneging on promises made to the Palestinians.
You bear THE MAJORITY of the responsibility. It was YOUR meddling that led to this mess. YOUR COUNTRY-not ours, SAS23. Scoff at that if you like, but you guys screwed up, didn't you, bright boy.
9/11 was indeed due to US policy in the Middle East - including its policy on Israel.
9/11 happened because the U.S. is the big boy on the block. Even OBL scarcely even mentions Israel, and Israel was NOT a reason for 9/11, even though it makes wide-eyed apologists for terrorists like you some comfort to think that way. You're wrong on this point, and you'll continue to be wrong on this point.
We've been living with terrorism in Europe for many years, and are slowly but surely getting it sorted out.
HAHAHAHAHA!! The only thinkg you're "slowly and surely" doing, is learning, once again, the art of appeasment. Other than that, you don't get any credit for sorting anything out. What a crock of crap that is.
The important thing is that we realised that an empire was no longer appropriate in the modern world.
Didn't you just say that Europe is becoming the next world power, SAS23? I could have sworn you did? Europe will NEVER be over trying to build empires. It's still trying to build a new empire.
Consequently, it incurrs considerably more hostility than Europe does around the world.
Maybe that's because the U.S., in almost every category-except maybe trying to talk its way out of everythig-is superior to Europe in such matters as economic power, political power and military power. That's why the U.S. is the target, and not Europe-because the U.S. is the big boy, and Europe is just a pretending wannabe.
SAS23, more than ever, you have shown yourself to be a man full of this unexplainable hatred of the United States, which is so hard to fathom? You've show yourself to be a man thirsty for the days when Europe ruled the globe, and you inexplicably, at the same time, want to see the U.S. humbled and embarrassed before the world. It's almost paranoia with you. I think you've embarrassed yourself on this post more than you ever have to this point, SAS23. All you've done is make a mockery of youself. Well done.
