    I thought you were talking about the group of rich people from whom the president takes orders.

    Thank you but I know what they do at the top.
    It's all good so don't worry..we may have a war or two but only as much as needed to keep economies going ...it the natural disasters you need to worry about as they are never planned.

    Being the world's bad guy is better than being the world's victim.

    Which ones can match the US in scale and scope?
    It's worse to be a bully who's always complaining about how other countries are taking advantage of... oh, wait, that's the president of the country that goes around starting wars and complaining about being 'policeman of the world'... oh, wait, the US police... um...
    Yeah, okay, it's best at being the bad guy.

    Funny. You just talked about how you stand up to bullies. But apparently it is even better to _be_ the bully?

    Ya, that'll be fun. But they'll probably both go after China.

    You are against what the US does, aren't you? You seem to be saying that other countries' engaging in imperialism makes it ok for the US to engage in imperialism.

    Except, the others didn't lie about it. Their people knew what they were paying for, what the armies were sent out to do, and they expected a share of the loot.

    The United States is one of the worst places to live in because the United States is basically a police state.

    There are many other better places than the US where people are more prosperous, healthier and live happier lives.

    Switzerland, New Zealand, Australia, Norway and Finland are better than the United States in almost every way because there by far less oppression in those nations.

    Is Mexico a bad place to live? If so, what made it bad?

    No, I meant, quiet a few are trying to get into America, ''police state'' or not.
    Russia is not the only country that likes a buffer zone.
    Gotta keep the commies out, right.

    And the US has been happy for the cheap labour over the years.

    There was a story yesterday about widespread hysterectomies among migrant camps in Georgia.

    If true that gives a stench that makes a police state appear wholesome.
