    Um, say again?


    Are you pushing for isolationism? Do you think there is no need for the United Nations? International Law?

    Who is going to support and defend our allies....if we don't?
    To the bolded. Not anymore than you're pushing for conflict and war. By the way, there's no such thing as an isolationist in foreign policy. And foreign policy as well as engagement can encompass a whole lot without that one thing, war, that makes you war first guys giddy.

    What are you talking about. I was rhetorically asking who would push for the regional war between EU/NATO and Russia that you're apparently hoping for.

    Winston, are you not aware that your sentiments are in breach of the edicts of the Ministries of Peace and Truth? That you endanger the populace of Oceania, by the mere questioning of the wisdom and benificence of the Inner Party, and that such activity may ultimately necessitate the involvement of the Ministry of Love, Room 101, and 'unpersons'.

    Eurasia and Eastasia are always lurking in the shadows - their identities readily interchangeable as the enemy du jour necessary to the permanent and unwinnable war so essential to the maintenance of the military-industrial complex, and the captains of industry.

    End this stubborn, self-willed exile from the love of Big brother, and remember ... "Be a government informer. Betray your family & friends. Fabulous prizes to be won!"

    In my posts you can find the reverse. I blame pro-Russian attitude for the making of Yugoslavia, while I not only accept (i.e., do not ignore) the role of US/NATO and IMF played on the break up but I accept and welcome such a liberating development.

    That sentiment of yours has been apparent. That doesn't change the very fact that there were others who didn't welcome US/NATO and IMF interference, and were not its beneficiaries.

    It is also a fact that they were the minority in Yugoslavia (i.e., Serbs alone), were pro-Russian, and they lost. Why emphasize a minority at the expense of the majority?
