I am definitely one of the 87% and I think you are a total fool for being one of the 13%.
Prove to me, without a shadow of a doubt, that 87% of Australians want an American nuclear carrier group parked in Perth and I will eat my feet, take
pictures of it and plaster it all over the Internet.
Seeing as proving that is an impossible task, I stand by my opinion that the statistic is wrong and congratulations on being fool enough to believe
Here is a statistic for you.
$40 billion per year EXTRA is what Australia would have to spend on defense if we did not have the USA as a close Allie. Currently our military
spending is at $25 billion per year. So it would be $65 billion without the USA.
Defence against whom? Nasty "tewworists"? How many terror attacks have happened on Australian soil since 9/11?
I like Americans. They're a good people. Sure they have their crazy Presidents, but that's it. Good Friends.
That's not the only reason I like them, but anyways that's all i;m writing for now. Peace out.
Congratulations on falling for the Americans game of labeling me as some sort of "America-hater". I guarantee you that if you went through every
single thread and post I have made on ATS since I joined over 4 years ago you will not find a single instance of me 'hating' on the average American.
I have ALWAYS said that this is about the government and, by proxy, the people that allow these monsters to stay in office. I have even pointed this
out several times in this thread alone.
Jesus H Christ does nobody actually READ threads?
But go ahead, keep making false assertions that I 'hate' the average American. It is meaningless to me considering the mountain of evidence I have at
my disposal to prove that wrong.
P.S. I had an American flatmate several years back for a year. Nicest bloke you could ever meet. Sorry to burst everyone's "Kryties is an
American-hater" BS bubble.
