    The sad thing is that you don't realize it is the truth. Your programming is working well and if you'll be patient, your next thought is in the pipeline and on the way. Ain't it wonderful, no thinking required? Say something bad about Venezuela, Russia, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Egypt, Haiti, and explain how all these worthless scumbags get bad press, ala Mainstream Media. Keep an eye on OIL, it may influence your news.

    Actually more third world, the system of government is middle ages mandarin with the efficiencies of Germany's National Socialists, what the west sees as "middle class" is more akin to the merchant class of middle ages Europe.

    Her might is her own market; it is no longer possible to ignore her mammoth needs and in return the world absorbs not only her trinkets but engineering, bridges, and skyscrapers around the world.

    Her military might is as it has always been, vast unlivable plains and enough people that they can and have waged war by making the enemy run out of ammunition. Her war technology is advancing rapidly. Americans should not be smug about their current superiority, but remember the last arms race, where the country with the superior economy won. The USSR simply could not keep pace and went broke trying. The US is broke paying entitlements, and are in deep debt to the Chinese.

Corporate influence prevents such physician programs in the USA. Cuba likely has some warts, but negligible compared to the USA. The USA Mainstream Brainstream Media has demonized Cuba per the request of its handlers since Castro came to power. Too much CIA control of our news.
    Cuba tends to be the rallying point for far left nut cases from those moronic college kids who wear Che t-shirts to hard core anarcho-syndicalist Bakunin wannabes.

    I support America. I think most adventurism is deleterious to America's interests. Is Wales a colony of GB? or an afterthought?

    Why do you hate America so much?

    Cymru is a colony, slowly regaining control over its life. I don't hate anyone - it is a capitalist footle. I find the way you grovel to your masters very laughable, though.

    translation-you appear to have a radical view of the UK and a hatred of anything capitalistic.

    The whining about the USA appears to be projection over UK domination of Wales

    Interesting a thread about the "worlds most powerful nation" and it seems to be dominated by posts about Cuba.......
