Yes that is why afganistan is still going on, and iraq is still going on, because you are the best of the best of the best .
I'll tell you why it's still going on, lack of resorces, equiptment, low protection level .
There are even voices down in Iraq that say, don't waste the shot save it for later, we have limited stock of amunition.
There is a big difrence, food is cheap, medicine is cheap, property is more afortable.
It would be a surprise for you to find out that people pay 2 dolars for a pack of malboro.
That is not true.
First of all the EURO is almost twice worth, so it is not equal, it's worth
The canadian dolar is worth more
1.97153 CAD = 2.00 USD
Not really, you got food cheaper but with less quality in it.
Of course a hamburger is going to be cheaper compared to a real cooked soop with non frozen vegetables with fresh chiken in it.

I think it is. Most of the Humvees in Iraq don't even have armor.There is a limited amount with armor on them, they cut back on the plate due to costs.
If a squad gets a bradley they are lucky.
That will soon go away.What today brings tomorrow will be history.
United States is heading in to recesion,
even the Canadian dolar is biger than the US dolar
I might not be sure about it but I think it's worth more, not to mention the Euro, it's worth almost twice.
And how is that true? .
Almost all the pipe lines with gas across europe do come from Russia.
They make more than you would think, plus Siberia is full of natural resouces, compare it to Alaska, Alaska is small.
Always remember, when talking about the US economy, that 80% of the US economy is generated from internal commerce.
and move to china or other places where labor is cheap.
Most of the products today on the American market are not even American any more, people need to have 3 jobs to be able to live a decent life and pay taxes.Where do you think money will come from? how would people be able to pay taxes to sustain the war machine since they are broke?
The US economy is down and broken, I think you are unrealistic.
why people live better in Western Europe because it's behind.
Some people in New York that have small bussineses are only accepting Euros
Other countries are changing from the US curency to other curencies when they make international deals.
China alone can dump the US economy at any time.
Just give it an year or two and you will notice if you visit Europe on vacation you will buy jack with your one dolar bill, since it's estimated that the Euro will be worth 4 times more than the one dolar bill.
That means that now 500 euros= 1000 dolars.
I can understand you, you are a die hard fan,
