But in a wider sense the title should read are US forces cowards, yes as they only attack those who cannot fight back. You wont see the brave US attacking or invading China, India or Russia will we so yes its cowards.


You don't see the brave Chinese, Russian or Indians attacking or invading the US, either. What's their reason?

Hello Jerico, well the answers simple, they have as yet have no Global ambitions, out of the three China is the most likley to have them as they are rearming like its raining. And if and when they do and hopefully I am still around I will be saying the same about them as I do the US.

Modern man cannot afford the luxury of religeous ignorance and maniacs with global ambitions, we either fight the fanatics or we become extinct, and by fanatics I mean the super rich and powerful who run this Planet.

Burman, I think you have just proved my point


Listen, I have no intention of getting into an online pissing contest with you over this. Particularly considering it would basically be me repeating that which I have already posted in other threads. Military actions are intended to be wars of attrition and you always hit your enemy's weakest point. If we're "bullies" then so are Russia (just invaded weak Georgia, hasn't attacked us or China) and so is China (Uses their military to squash internal scoial unrest by weak civillians, hasn't attacked us or Russia.) What you're defining as "cowardice" is actually smart military strategy. Read Sun Tzu's Art of War someday if you can ever pull your attention away from blind America bashing. It touts the importance of striking your enemy when they are weakened and avoiding direct attacks (but remaining highly defensive) when they are at their strongest or of equal strength to your army.

I realize that "enlightened" individuals such as yourself have a hard time understanding simple concepts of warfare and battle espoused by "knuckle draggers" such as me... but remember, if it wasn't for us "knuckle draggers" you'd most likely be dead, speaking a completely different language than the one you currently speak, or being crushed under the thumb of an oppressive dictatorship.

Also, could you possibly put the 'd' into my name? It isn't "burman" (actually it's just plain old 'Burd' if we want to get technical...) It's a simple mistake anyone could make, but I wouldn't want anyone to mistake you for a knuckle dragging lug over it.

Burdman, I to don't want to get into a pissing contest but its simple, the Russians were provoked by the US/Israel in Geogia, can you not see that, how would you like it if you suddenly found out that there were Russian and Chinese "advisors" over the border in Mexico telling them how to take you out and arming them.

And as far as defending others from Dictatorships I'm living in the biggest one the World has ever seen or experienced to date.

And yes you are right you attack your enemies when they are weak, but some will always be weak wont they just as there are strong people and weak ones but that does not make it right for the strong to bully the weak.

And as to the gloves on the floor that was just a bit of tongue in cheek humour so don't take any offence to it.

Oh, forgot to add, both sides of my family have fought in the crimea, boer war, Zulu wars, ww1, 2, all the wars of independance and Korea after that we got smart and decided living was better than being dead. Every year we go abroad we go to pay our respects to our family members who were slaughtered in the sensless wars for the profit and gain of the few.
