These idiots want a political, economic & fiscal union?

I've said that Germany will be the cause of Europe going up in flames once more...

Nice one Germany

As many have prophesied the imminent demise of the Trump Presidency, I believe Germany will implode far faster. Critical mass has been achieved.

German weekly magazine Stern also pointed out the boot's name, Polar Fox, shares a name with a World War Two military operation.
Polarfuchs, or Polar Fox, was an operation in which German and Finnish soldiers captured Salla, Finland from the Soviet Union.

Oops:)
"Fjällräven" http://www.fjallraven.co.uk/ meaning Polar Fox also shares the name.
LOL.

BTW. The Polar Fox is now an endangered specie!

China doesn't understand this: It nothing more than a Large Walmart. Which doesn't control the 'Means of its Wealth' - Its Consumers (they can shop at another store) and Energy.
Which is why the incoming POTUS is going to remind them who the customer is...........and what happens when they quit buying.

I still feel that *everyone* grossly underestimates China. 'We are just all sooooo powerful and superior' 'they are weak and can't survive without us buying things'.


-They have superior public education to the US and likely many other nations.

-They have approximately 4 times the manpower (population) of the US and 8 times the manpower (population) of Russia.

-China's military manpower is roughly 50% larger than the US's.

-They have superior manufacturing ability and superior manufacturing infrastructure. (to the US). (i.e. they have a much better high-tech manufacturing ability than the US)

-Without China, there's a much smaller chunk of the world that will be able to make quality affordable high-tech goods for the US and rest of the world. This would have a negative affect on the US (and our military- how much military technology do you suppose is built in part with Chinese components?)



My point is I don't agree with this pompous attitude of superiority the US has taken towards China, and I think that keeping good relations would have been in everyone's best interests.

I think you must have this thread mixed up with some other thread on some other planet. Or perhaps you are having pipe dreams.

I stated an opinion (my opinion that maintaining good relations in in everyone's best interest), and backed it with facts.


I apologize if I am anti-war and this bothers you. But it's my opinion. No one said you have to accept it. That's why this is a free country! (for now)

So far, all you've done is post B/S & rallied against practically all groups - YET when questioned has not answered with either a possible solution or even your own opinion.

Unless you're prepared to do so, go populate your bathroom as everyone knows, that's the best place for B/S.

Wilson was anti-war until the Lusitania, FDR was anti-war until Pearl Harbor...........and the reason this is a free country is the blood shed by Patriots so you could have an opinion not supplied by the Government.

Everyone(who has actually been there) is anti-war, that doesn't mean you hide under the bed when threatened. It means you stand up to bullies and thugs.

The thing is that the US has been 1 of those bullies and thugs stirring up unrest around the world for decades now and it's about time it was stopped by all sides.

No cheers for stupidity.

I didn't read much about the US bullying and being thugs coming from Australia during WWII. Perhaps when China comes to call on Sydney the US will 'refrain' from 'bullying' them.........no, we don't abandon friends. [edit] With the exception of the last 8 years.

Enjoy your vacation but on your return, before you post, strip down your computer, clean out the dust bunnies then run a scan as it's pretty certain that your computer is infected by an A.I bot that thinks it's human.

Oh & while you're down there, let the Argies known that it's the Falklands Islands not Las Malwinos :-)

Now let's see, WWII, oh yes you Yanks sat on your arses while we were evacuating British colonials out of SE Asia and holding the Japs back until the Japs did Pearl Harbour, then your generals wanted to use us as cannon fodder to protect your troops (yeah nice allies).

U.S. policies since have done nothing other than trying to bully others into doing what yous want and if yous don't get your way yous just become thugs, no different to Russia, but seeing as you wear blinkers I guess that you just tend to ignore those things.

Cowboy culture or Cossack culture, it's all the same in the end and you wonder why China is gearing up with 2 idiot nations either side of it.

That's good to hear Clyde as we'll have less pointless gibberish posts to wade through for a while. :-)

Still no cheers here.

Don't forget the worst American military sycophant who ran & left his command behind. Where did he run to - Australia leaving behind General Wainwright in overall command.

Wainwright had no choice but to surrender his forces to avoid senseless bloodshed. On his release from captivity, Wainwright still agonised over his decision asked a question: What did they think of him back home. He was stunned to be told he was a hero & awarded the Medal of Honour.

Here's the kicker:

The proposal for Wainwright's CMH was made in 1942. However it was rejected due to the vehement opposition of General MacArthur, who felt that Corregidor should not have been surrendered. MacArthur did not oppose the renewed proposal in 1945.
