They may abandon non-violence later but I think it was a very good move for them to be seen using it to begin with.Comment Posted By getreal On 20.06.2009 @ 16:15
I also do not agree with many of Obamas economic policies, but I cannot be the only person who has become very jaded with the way both Republicans AND Conservatives pay lip service to the "Free Market" only to ignore it when it benefits them and their political contributors.Comment Posted By getreal On 14.05.2009 @ 18:54
and is not home to millions...
sorry ... I meant IS home to millions of ethnic Russians whose loyalty lies with their “homeland” and not their home.
There was no comparable "fifth-column" of pro-American Iraqis. Even our allies were Iraqi-loyalists who sided with us because they thought it was in the best interests of Iraq, NOT because they were loyal to America.Comment Posted By getreal On 13.05.2009 @ 09:12
B. Poster -
None of the countries you mention can project any meaningful force for any real distance outside of their own borders. None of them are in any real position to project force into a resisting country, even an adjacent one. For example, Russia took 15+ years to get results in Chechnya remotely comparable to those we've achieved in Iraq - and that was an adjacent country that has long cultural links to Russia and is not home to millions of ethnic Russians whose loyalty lies with their "homeland" and not their home.
The only wars that Russia, China, or India, could win against the US are defensive wars inside of their own territory or, maybe, the territory of an adjacent nation that invites them in and doesn't feature any substantial resistance to their presence.
As long as we don't make the stupid decision to invade Russia, China, or India (or an adjacent vassal state) we really shouldn't have a problem.Comment Posted By getreal On 13.05.2009 @ 09:09
