While you may have thrown the word "if" in there, the rest of the post indicates that you were trying to estimate, not make some hypothetical, the amount of people that believe the garbage spewed from CNN.
Read my post again properly and stop being such a dramatic little baby..
Notice the word "If" before the 2/3's part? That means its a hypothetical situation.. Do you understand that concept? Or do you want me to break that down for you..?
Notice how I mentioned a number of countries in the statement.. not just yours..? So am I now anti UK & anti Chinese as well? Maybe I should also turn myself in as a traitor for saying that we also get media propaganda.
Okay, first, I don't remember a single post where you declared yourself to be from Ireland so I think European was an ACCURATE description; so your little tantrum about how you aren't European was sort of an incredibly dumb post.
"European"..? Im not European you North American. The English speaking countries of the EU dont have anti US propaganda.. Would this not seem obvious to you?
I have my own opinions from spending time in the US, having an interest in the world and regularly conversing with American mates of mine.
I have met many of the 'US Stereotypes' you mentioned.. they were all stupid, angry, ignorant to the world and thought that because Im from Ireland, I live in a little run down farmhouse where i farm leprechauns, drink whiskey all day long and pray for a half an hour before I eat my potato sandwiches... the other half of US people I met were great fun, intelligent and had some social composure.
I don't mean to be obtuse, but what in the hell are you talking about?
He means American people are blind and dumb, believeing every thing that they get told. Throw in the name of god, then you have the most ignorant un-informed people on the planet.
Thats a little bit harsh
I didn't mean ALL of them.. just a lot...
Do you really want to stick to this statement after things I have said from above? There is way more that you have said too, I just find it unnecessary to beat my point all the way down to hell. But let us recap:
Finally.. How did you miss that you are the one spewing the "hate talk"? - I have not said one anti American thing in this thread.. if I have, find it please..
Otherwise.. cop on to yourself.

So, in what respects was I wrong? You know what, I don't care. Your ignorance is a waste of my time. Enjoy living in your hate.

so stepping into Europe would be accomplished in a matter of weeks and moving out across a large area would be accomplished within just a couple of months, if that.

I'm glad the Australians feel the need to build up their Navy. In my humble opinion that's a good thing. The US has been shouldering the responsibility for more than a few decades. It's funny China wants a deep water navy I say have at it. It's not like the US and her navy will shrivel up and wither away.

At least Westerners believe in something greater than themselves...
China in charge would be materialism and consumerism... but with no
No wonder they put industrial solvents in food stuffs...

I think you meant to say "believing" and "uninformed." Also, ignorant and uninformed mean the same thing, O great judge of other peoples' dumbness. If every American truly believed everything they were told, I doubt there would be an ATS. Last I checked, the Amigos were Americans.
You know what really bothers me, even more than that? Being called dumb by somebody who's never met me, based on nationality. To pass judgment on an entire country of people without knowing them is ignorant.

And you're a damn fool if you think it's only in the US. It's the same group of people pulling the strings behind all the native English speaking countries. I've been to Australia, nice place. The people I met there worshiped America
