The USA is too reliant on the world economy, we don't have factories or produce things other than weapons and aircraft that others want. We are overpriced on our stuff. Maybe you don't see what we have allowed to be created but I do. There is too much structure to this thing, it's almost like someone is controlling our downfall.

Who really needs the type of stuff we produce?

We have a TON of old factories laying around not being used. It doesn't take a lot to retrofit/refurbish some of this stuff to produce anything we want. Corporate and political US are masters of propaganda and influence, all it would take is a little spark and a news story to create a paradigm shift towards industrialism, just like the 1940s.

Also the entire world buys US weapons and food. Iran even uses American fighters, without the good stuff of course.

When push comes to shove we (the United States) has the know-how and means to be able to produce goods itself... More companies are going to be bringing their business back home soon enough, the world of outsourcing to 3rd world countries will eventually come to an end. The US tried that, it never worked, and now companies understand that it looks "better" when their products are produced state-side.. It may cost a little more, but its definitely worth it when yuo consider that people want to buy products from companies who produce here in USA and who employ american citizens

WW3 is going to be a financial war, we are already so far in debt that we cannot get out. We have lost the war already, all it would take is a world wide ban on imports and exports from the USA and we would crumble.


I don't think you quite comprehend where the US stands in the world's economy.

EDIT: Which is at the top. The world gets just as much from America as America gets from the world. In today's world of globalization, a ban on imports and exports from the US would absolutely destroy the world.

U.S. ~ 5% production, 40% consumption

We don't produce much relative to what we used to because we have transitioned to a mostly service based economy. If the situation calls for it (for example your "world wide ban on all things United States"), I have no doubt we would see a massive revival of the US's factories.

Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner...


This is controlled chaos in the making, set to unfold before our very eyes over the coming weeks and months. The US military will make the first move, against Syria. Susan Rice confirmed it the other day.

'They' (shadow rulers) want control of the globe - the USA is firmly in their grip, and has been for a very, very, very long time.

We owe to the allied forces (including the U.S.) because they freed our nation from the yoke of Nazi and Communist totalitarianism.
My family quite frankly owe them their lifes because they were politically persecuted during the NS regime.
We were only able to develop the excellent political system we have today because of them.
Other european nations owe them even more for the same reasons IMO.

you are a typical yank worshiping german. stop watching mtv and get with the program. russia and britain defeated the nazis, and we owe the americans nothing

americans are the only nation to sell their drowning friends a rope. if i was stuck in a swamp and my friend sold me a rope i would punch him in the face straight afterwards. europe should punch america in the face

they let their allies, including britain, be brought to their knees, so that they could take our economic power and influence.

america while helping europe was plotting against and trying to destroy the allied nations.

everybody who reads a book knows this happened. america used world war 2 to take down the european super powers and position themselves as the super power.

it's disgusting, that's why nobody except germans will thank them. because we're not brainwashed like germany.

I don't see a third world war being fought any time soon. In my opinion we're looking at a point in time so far into the future that one might as well ask whether or not the US and Europe will be fighting each other.

Without a recall of our money and restructuring it won't be possible, our national debt is too high. Our factories have been destroyed, leveled so the competition wouldn't get them. This is nowhere near the conditions that occurred in the forties.

Instead of trying to insult and down play the importance of the United States, a simple thank you and be on your way is sufficient enough.




thankyou for what?

I didnt click the link but is it nazi stuff? because I covered that already in the OP.

We are not scared and we owe you nothing.

You did not win WW2.

edit- Ha! what a load of crap.

If Australia doesn't owe the United States anything then we should send repo men over to take back your entire Air Force.

F-18 Hornets and Super Hornets totaling 95 jets
AP-3C Orions - 21
Boeing C-17s - 6
C-130s - 20

All should be repossessed and given back to their rightful owners. See how far your country gets without them.

Oh yeah thats right, you will just rely on China to supply your air defense needs. If they don't stab your country in the back first.

Charities can be evil and charities can be a part of capitalism but there are good honest ones out there.


Yeah for sure. My thread is on unions as well. I am against them as well.

Unions are a bad thing.

But the people are not all bad. Its just a bad set up for alot of reasons.

But I am anti-charity and anti-union and I am socialist. I dont think we need charity with socialism.


Pushing the bottom up by giving them a hand up, is all good and well for equality.

Pushing the top down for equality is disastrous for all involved. It just creates more laziness, more handouts and more entitlements that the people cannot afford in the long run. That is just financial retardation. The math just does not add up.

Did you really go to University?

This is LIFE, not Star Trek.

I do not see the factories except maybe in Flint and Detroit. Most stuff is made abroad. Most factories are gone.

Our national debt is mostly owned by Americans themselves. You are correct that the conditions are quite different than the forties, but there is one thing that is the same: American's resiliency.

As much as we hate the top, we want to stay there.

the difference is when we fought we did it for the good of humanity, and didn't try to destroy our allies in the process. when America fought you waited until we were down and forced to enter, then you economically took a giant # on us.

not something a friend would do.

I guess you are completely ignorant of what happened back then. You ever heard of the Marshall Plan or the fact that after we toppled the authoritarian leadership of Japan they experienced miraculous economic growth because of American born libertarian and democratic ideologies.

There is a reason the American colors are where they are at in this picture:


The entire world severely underestimates the US because all our skeletons and bad news are broadcasted and used as propaganda.

You understand that before the United States got involved in the war they were handling some major issues back home, maybe you heard about it, the Great Depression... You are giving us way too much credit....

Fought for the good of humanity?? Give me a break... You fought for your well being, just like any other invaded country would do......

You are so silly, you don't even know what your own government are doing.

thank you for your debt, that is just what we needed. could have joined earlier


but no, you did just what i said you did. you waited until we were crushed so you could hijack our economy with your "aid"

everybody knows there is no such thing as american aid, only economic poison

Fairly certain it was the UK that first intervened. It was it's Naval and Air forces that took the fight to the Germans. D-Day was their idea and operation, with of course some American units involved.

But of course UK counts even less in this case as "Europe" since it was not and was never going to be invaded.

Britain wasn't invaded you halfwit. We DECLARED war on Germany because that's how we roll. We don't let our allies get brought to their knees and then only join in when we're attacked, we stand up and say "Oi, me and you, outside, now!"

America hides in the corner, waits for the pub brawl to finish and then goes around picking the pockets of everybody involved
