If that does happen, will America & indeed Europe be prepared for the shockwaves?

As far as I see it, the problem is that people, including leaders are only looking short term in solving issues.

It's the long term that needs to be looked at.

Nice attitude - I take it that you don't care for any offspring or relatives?

Just a fact, the long term is when all factors have time to change. I do try to take a long term view not that it will benefit me but I view it as the right thing to do.

What? You don't think the American people chose the leader that's going to prevent that from happening?

Careful, there are people in here who are going to start labeling you a racist. From one white guy to probably another, I'm just trying to help you.


That'll be very stupid of them, as should the events suggested actually occur, it'll be those racists that they'll need to protect their way of life....

....today of all days confirms that....

...then again, there are those who continue to state that it never happened.
