    And so, you become ignored for the rest of this thread until you can post something even slightly intelligent.
    Ask the little fellows who wore the black pajamas (the Viet Cong). They seemed to manage well enough against every comer, including both the French and the Americans.

    Had you been specific I may not have felt the need to comment.

    And no, not everyone knows Africans sold each other into slavery, even though you and your mom talk about it all the time.

    And, BTW, why would you and your mom talk about that particular subject all the time?
    Exactly, we still have responsibility for the slave trade, them selling themselves doesn't justify ****.

    If it weren't for us there would be no slave trade because there would be no customers.

    So yes, we need to take some responsibility for their woes.

    Viet Nam is one of the poorest nation and their children are still being born with defects thanks to the chems we spread there (and others are having their limbs blown off by unexploded ordinance) and he thinks we didn't screw them over.

    No, the only responsibility we have are towards those we held as slaves after they were sold and delivered to us (by the Dutch). And there were plenty of other nations buying slaves at that point in history. The US was not the sole purveyor.

    That Central American nations have CHOSEN to be the drug suppliers for North America is entirely, 100% on them. Yes, we expressed demand upon that market, however they CHOSE to be the ones to satisfy that demand (and let's not forget, to keep it going as well). There was no onus on them to become the supplier, just their own greed. And by that they doomed themselves to a culture rife with corruption and violence.

    Take a look at the silly question I was responding to and the response fits perfectly. There was no mention of that last statement, no need for a context change.

    I did, and your example doesn't show how a weaker force can prevent a stronger one from screwing them over

    Okay, so you're saying the US prevailed in Vietnam and that the VC lost the day. Gotcha. Yeah, that sounds right, NOT!

    Good grief, here is the post I was responding to, I don't wish to engage you in your typical semantic change the goal posts game.
