Let's get to the point:
US needs it, China needs it, Russia doesn't want the US or China to have it.
Oil is the lifeblood of all economic stability and expansion. Economic power controls military power. Military power helps to sway political
The US wants to eliminate dictatorships. It's good business since dictators switch allegiances to the highest bidder (Zimababwe is now accepting
Chinese help, Venezuela is now looking to Russia, Cuba, and Iran). Democracies are more stable and the people hate wars. Russia and China like
dictatorships because when the US asks too much, then they can step in and gain power.
The US is hated. Fine...you built the beast world. You allowed Germany, Italy, Japan, and Russia to come to power. The US is the warrior that
hasn't come home to peace. It lives in fear because it is always fighting, it is a warrior country until the rest of the world can help convince it
to return to a calm state. The stakes are much higher with nuclear weapons...the warrior US knows that.
Insulting the US is like yelling at the soldier coming home from war for being too blunt, irritable, controlling, violent. It is a psychological
state and someone who grows flowers and sips coffee will never understand the stresses of what the soldier has gone through. The US can't relate to
why the flower grower doesn't pick up a gun and stop things at the first sign of trouble.
The American terrorist is false...it is the American warrior psychological state that needs to be reduced and calmed down. Some Americans get this,
some don't and protest that all war is bad...grow flowers! Some say the sky is falling; invade this country, blow up that country...why?...because
that's all the US knows. Why talk when you've got 20 stealth bombers that can change your mind? Of course this is unexceptable...but the US has
been forced into this way of thinking because it worked on Germany, Japan, Italy, and Russia.
This world is getting crazy. The US needs the democratic world's help, not to unite and kill things, but to calm the US down. Give and take.
Insulting people and being anti-American is childish. Just as I think Americans that insult the French or other countries that don't want war is
childish. You can hope the US gets in a war with Russia or China and satisfy your hate, but the winner will be the survivor among the three and that
country will now dictate to you just like the US did...you've accomplished nothing.
The key is to unite and logically, empathatically, and reassuringly calm the US down...convince the US people that life is good, we are all on the
same side, we all want to breathe fresh air, laugh, see our family, and live happily. I don't see that in this thread. I see more inane
confrontational talk...more macho talk, more accusations...all a waste of damn time and tied to egos wanting to put their stamp on the world.
