Id never heard of this place before but after a quick look on Google maps it does appear to be much closer to the Phils than China. Im guessing this place must have Oil or Gas or something.
If thats the case why dont they just say the Phillipines is run by Terrorists or building a Nuke, go in bomb the crap out of them then install a friendly puppet government that will sell them the resources for practically nothing
Thats what civilised countries do isnt it
"If I had to choose sides today, I'd choose the Taliban,"
Have you noticed that nearly ALL of the Iraq oil is being drilled by Chinese companies? Did you know that the US did not get ONE SINGLE oil contract?? Of course you didn't. Admitting that voids some of your talking points. Do you really know anything that you didn't read on the internet?
It is easy to look at a country, at war for many years and make statements like yours. Very easy...
The US calls people Terrorists or says they are building a Nuke, go in bomb the crap out of them then install a friendly puppet government that will sell them the resources for practically nothing.
Puppet Govt. Afghanistan?? Karzai has openly told the US that his country would side with Pakistan in a war with the U.S.
Are you under the impression that the National Libyan Council is a friend of the west? If you hold that opinion, you should to some research.
You are probably a caring person, that would stop all violence if you could.
You look to the country that has done the most killing, and try and make their cause seem sinister. If you thought their wars were justified, you'd experience internal conflict, knowing the wars are for the greater good, meanwhile still wanting peace. Some people can't handle internal conflict, so they are easily swayed to make it "their story"
So to summarize, you implying that the US benefited in resources, from either Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan are blatant lies. Likewise, you implying that the Govt's in said countries are "puppets" are nothing more that forum talking points, for those that lack the heart and courage to revolt in the real world. The keyboard crusaders are having an internet revolution, that will do or change nothing!
You obviously approve of constant warfare so who do you think the US should attack next?
