Which leads to an ethical decision. Personally, I'd love to see something like that happen; they hate the United States so much, but without us to bail them out, they wouldn't exist. On the other hand, we in the States have an obligation to keep the world safe and to stem the tide of terrorism.
So it's a mess. Maybe an increased threat of terrorism in Europe'll make them show us just a little more respect.
So apparently we are goners without the united states ok sure we are, and we also need the united states to bail us out or we would cease to exist really I like you rk your point of view is put across so brilliantly that it left me thinking, "what the hell were you trying to say"
Europe is not defenceless without the americans, and we don't hate all americans just the arrogant ones that seem to think that only they can save the world from terrorists I would like to remind you that americans were actually funding terrorists up until the planes hit the twin towers
But even after all that I like working with MOST americans just one or two get on my nerves so if mr Rumsfeld wants to pull those americans out of europe take them round the back of a shed and shoot them thats fine with me. But not reduce so much that we have no military infrastructure to work with
From within Chaos Comes Order
When there is no order in the world around us, we must adapt ourselves to the requirements of chaos instead.
Law is order in liberty, and without order liberty is social chaos.
Too little liberty brings stagnation and too much brings chaos
Freedom is just Chaos, with better lighting.
