The argument is oft made that we Americans have no choice but to suck it up and pay what ever invoice is presented for the crude that we want, but I say that we do have options and that we should consider using them. I am not as hung up as you are on condemnation of American raping and pillaging.
You really are one confused, terribly inconsistent puppy, aren't you, Hawkeye.
You make a dismal attempt at maligning Russia and China [not that there aren't certain things you could have focused on] and then in the next breath you make the completely illogical argument that the US shouldn't follow the very capitalist principles they mouth - they don't, by the way, the US should instead continue their century long practice of stealing from other countries.
I'm interested in learning how a brain such as yours can function with no connection between thought and language.
As long as America is not among the worst of the thugs then I am happy.
What makes you think that American is not among the worst of the thugs, if not the top thug?
Oh wait, silly me, I forgot - you've been subjected to a lifetime of propaganda, conditioned by others who came before who were also relentlessly indoctrinated into thinking that the US is some kind of savior for the oppressed.
China and Russia do not follow the capitalism program...that was my point.
How might that be? Correct me if I'm wrong but haven't they both invested in other countries where they actually bought something instead of invading or installing their own dictator?
You wanted to do the US vis a vis WWII. Still interested, Hawk?
