Wasn't pointed at you. Sorry if you got that wrong.

But it's pretty disgusting to watch some people seeing patterns, terrorists, threats, ghosts or whatever really everywhere.
It just needs a little brain to realise that it is mostly all totall bollocks but those people keep on talking about that stuff like those stuff are facts and not only assumptions.

Nobody here really has a clue do they?

Before any war between the Rest of The World and the US was to take place, there would be a myriad of economic measures and counter-measures taking place.

The US depends on the Rest of The World for it's resources. Economically, it would be choked to death before any military conflict. And in all liklihood, judging from some of the US posters here, once the economy hit dirt, the US people would be more likely to turn upon themselves before turning against anyone else.

Economics plays a massive part in warfare - it always has and it always will. You only need to look at Iraq in recent years to see how choking a country's economy chokes it's military ambitions. The US would have to make a pre-emptive strike against Europe. This is clearly a war that could only end in a nuclear winter or the destruction of the US through a devestation of it's economy.

Still. It's nice to see all the Yanks dreaming of their world superiority. It's just a pity that they don't know what The Rest of The World is actually capable of.

Maybe if you actualy took the time to read what was posted prior to your response, you would see that not "all the Yanks" are dreaming of their world superiority.


Get a clue yourself.

America is the supreme power in the world without a doubt. Not just with armed forces but in every aspect of the modern world. The entire economic system of the world is based on and relies on America. Look at the Tiger Crash in 1997/8, Greenspan himself alone prevented a major global recession by changing rates etc, on the verge of a global recession the world experienced the biggest boom in history.

All money in the world flows in and out of America or has some involvement with America at some level, 99% of entertainment, both films, music, tv shows (do you even know how many USA shows are in syndication around the world in more than 55 countries???) diet and restaurants and food (America feeds the world with grain...not forgetting Mc Donalds and Coke) fashion with Levi and the like. American culture IS the culture of the world as it is now.

And what exactly are you using to read and access this information? American software, at most operating system on Windows, at least some driver software or application..and the net itself? off spring from the American Military and Universities!!!!!

im not American
LOL and you really gotta read my earlier posts first


Japanese economy, erm who created it? Like the Germany economy..who created that?? After WWII?? WHo funded these economies? Both are still in recession.

China is growing but no where near America. The dollar is down now but still USA is the richest nation in the world. Highest GDP for the size of her nation.

You cant deny the cultural power and clout of the states, you see people wearing Chinese fashion? Watching Chinese TV,Movies, MTV???

North America accounts for something like over 60% of WORLD GDP
No # there its a fact. Research it!

And you hit the nail on the head...game cube..without the American consumer...the world is screwed. Americans consume just about every product in the world.

America may be an economic giant but that could also be it's undoing. It's population isn't used to hardship. Any economic downturn is going to hit the average American harder than it would in a country with lower expectations.

There are many countries in the world where people survive without Gamecubes, cars, consumer goods, etc. Luxury items elsewhere are classed as necessities in the US.

But anyway, the US doesn't supply the rest of the world with the majority of it's technology. It pays the money to develop it - but only because it controls the market. Take away the market control and the US would be in dire straits.

Heh, I think many Americans have seen just as much hardship as the next guy. The vast majority of people haven't seen or had to go through what many people have, but there has been plenty of hardship...

Look at where America came from and how it got started...

Good one! And sooooo true.

I think if you look at our past, Americans are pretty adaptable and when hardship does hit on a wide scale, we get pissed off and toughen up really quick. I think if anyone tried to invade the US, it would just solidify the American people and then look the **** out. Like I said earlier, and as America haters are fond of pointing out, we all have guns....

you'd be surprised, i mean most americans arent rich with a great life and we do struggle with every day like anyone else...you are ill informed here, cars, game cubes, are luxury items in the US still and most i ever met had used cars with parts from junk yards, in many areas we are poor and used to hardship(those areas are probably the heaviest armed parts of the country due to the necessity) heck mexico has more cars per capita than america so its not as you say over here.

umm ok..but our gdp 10 trillion per year, we earn 2 trillion in revenues per year, we are the biggest importer and exporter of everything, our air force is the largest most advanced force on the planet, our army is the 2nd largest with training as good as any if not the best, our navy again is the largest on earth with the best ships there are and we have bases and troops in over 100 countries and most technology has come from us, that all doesnt just happen by luck or for no reason, it happens because the US is a world power.

money = power and advancement in the world, the US has the most so its only logical....
