far more technologically adept countries, such as Japan, and also quite a few European countries...
Some would argue that military might is nothing to be proud of if you use it to intimidate your allies and murder thousands.
I'd rather live in a country that's not in a constant state of fear, paranoia and war, where if I'm seriously injured or ill I don't have to pay
to be treated, and where the people are passive, open minded and liberal.
Ask yourself this, if America is the greatest country in the world, why do we all hate you? And don't tell me we're jealous, because I have no
interest in living in or even visiting such a socially backward country as the US.
There's a big difference between the drop of a hat and 3000 dead innocent Americans and the heart of the western financial system being abolished.
Trying to downplay the significance of that is insanely ignorant.
Yeah there's a bit of murder that happens in big cities, when you have 5-6 million people in a small land area they're not going to all get along
especially if the economy isn't doing very well. Poor jobless people will have more free time and less to lose. But it's not like the problem is
being totally ignored.
War is hell, innocent people die. Do you have a better idea of how to deal with terrorists murdering 3000 innocent people? You're big on the
criticism but not so big on better ideas over there buddy.
Japan is very technologically advanced, wonder why? I think part of the reason is they don't have a huge military budget. They are under the
protection of the US and that gives them the freedom to invest more into technology and less into military might.
Did we intimidate out allis with military might? What allis? Did we threaten to invade a European country if they didn't help us or something? What
are you talking about?
I live in the US, I have never had to pay a medical bill in my life, although I pay $9 maximum per prescription. Big deal. Where I live no one is in
fear or constant paranoia, in fact I haven't noticed a difference between pre 9/11 and today, everything is still the same where I live.
You're a scott and your ancestors helped found the US. If we're societally backward you should take it up with them lol. Everyone doesn't hate us,
we just got a bad batch of leadership in the white house and I think most people understand that.
