America can be self sustaining, we have oil, we have food, we have water, we have the strongest military, we have 300 million people, we have a very large amount of land.... What we lack is common sense to use what we have "globlaztion" has killed America. A boycott on American goods? whats the point its all made in China.

Actually the boycott would only affect big box store business, and those are owned by transnational mega corporations. I think boycotting them now would help nuture the local economies, and make small hometown USA thrive once again.

As an American, I think it should be boycotted.
So, exactly where are you badasses going to get your high technology fighter aircraft, radar technologies, cruise missiles, and then have the benefit of falling under the umbrella of the United States military?
That would mean you'll have to significantly increase your navies, your air forces, and your armies.
As an American taxpayer, maybe everyone should look out for themselves.
And I'll be damned if we're going back the THIRD TIME to pull Europe's bacon out of the fire.
Statements and postulations like this just burn my ass.
Take care of your own crap then, if you're able, and leave us out of it.

Why would the rest of the arab world retaliate? They didn't when Iraq invaded Kuwait. They didn't when we went into Iraq. They didn't when we went to Afghanistan.
