That's just silly. If we have to point a finger, it's the media, and more to the point the Liberal media. They spin the news so people like the nurse think GWB is evil and Saddam is a friggin saint.Naughty Nurse said:I think it's GWB!

Absolutely not. You don't get it.Batman said:- They want to be the superpower we are, but can't..
No, fads are very American. More like intelligent people who've thought through the issues, who realise that if we don't oppose US imperialism and hegemony we're all doomed.Batman said:Here, I think some think it's the 'thing to do' - hate Bush; hate America. Like it's a fad or something.
Hello Fried Rice,Fried Rice said:Hello Urethra,
You are quite right when you acknowledge our dominance of the world. now we are in WTO, our growth exceeds even our greatest expectations. It seems every position in job market is for company supplying and supplanting USA control.
By the way i think Mr Bush is in your pretty city these days - will you give him warm welcome ?
Fried Rice is very cold today.
I would have preferred that we let Hans Blix & co. finish their work. I would have prferred that we support internal dissent. It was that which led to the downfall of dictators like Causescu and Milosevic, not imperialist US invasion. If you so care about freeing oppressed peoples, go invade Uzbekistan or Saudi Ararbia. No, you'd lose too many precious oil interests.Repubteen said:You know you make me laugh when you say the US is imperialistic. What about the terrorists,they want us dead and they don't like our views. Even the democrats are more imperialistic then us conservatives. Just look at what they do, they enforce everybody else's religion on you except for Christianity and Judaism,they say they support blacks(which is now a lie just listen to what Howard Dean said about them in the hotel). And they think we need to be more culturally united. So nows who more imperialistic. And another thing if your talking about us being imperialistic towards Iraq. You must have a mental disorder because any one who would prefere a ruler like Saddam Hussein over a President and a Free Iraq must have been brainwashed.
One day when you leave kindergarden dear boy............Repubteen said:Ya but when you say were imperialistic thats not true we were allowed to attack him if he violated any of the cease fire agreements of 1991. And he violated every single one during the Clinton administration and Clinton did nothing, we would not be in this war if Clinton had done his job when he was in office.But how much time could we have given the UN weapon inspectors, Saddam wasn't cooperating and the more time we give them the more time they have to hide the weapons. And they would have lied to the UN inspetors just like they did in on
Dec 7 2002
----Iraq submitted a 12000 page declaration on it's chemical, biological and nuclear activities, Claiming it had no banned Weapons.
Jan 16 2003---- UN inspectors discover 11 undeclared empty chemical warheads in Iraq
That right there tells you they cant be trusted.And keep in mind the US is looking for something the size of a garage in the land area of California.
Not at all.Repubteen said:Good response, the facts are staring you in the face.
LOL LOL LOL. Hmm, lets see - no free healthcare, tens of thousands of gun related deaths, inadequate elementary and high school education, food stamps (food stamps! I don't even know if they have them in the UK!), I seen the slums in the US - not pretty.Batman said:Overseas, I think some of it is jealousy - They want to be the superpower we are, but can't.

Whats the point in being superpower when you can't give good services to benefit the people? Truthfully I'd rather live in Canada to be honest.
If you spent less money on the military and more on social aspects like free healthcare, education etc. I might then be envious of the US.

Not until China gets its energy problem solved, it won't. It will be very interesting to see how that plays out. If it resolves into a scrap over oil, Katie, bar the door!Urethra Franklin said::rofl :rofl
Absolutely not. You don't get it.
Besides, China will soon be a greater superpower than you.
It will do Georgie good to realize that not everyone likes him all that well. In the US he is extremely successful in suppressing such public displays, and he makes sure that no one has an opportunity to ask him hostile questions. He has also turned the White House press corps into a collection of lapdogs (not that they weren't already). Vive La France!Urethra Franklin said:Hello Fried Rice,
Last time Dubya visited Paris many protests against him were staged. It ****ed me off because I was off out to dinner with friends and the métro stop I needed was closed due to him. Now you'd have thought he could afford a car?
We will not be warmly welcoming him. Sadly much public money will be wasted on security for this "con".
(Your lesson for today as you seem to be picking up French so well: con = idiot. Strange that in "their" language it's also short for "conservative" :rofl )
