I just read something to the effect that the Muslim Brotherhood and ElBaradei are forming a unity govt? Anybody else see or hear anything to this effect?
compare the portions of our gdp today that are due to things such as financial services or health care or any other sector that doesn't actually provide any production, to the proportion it was 40 years ago. you'll quickly see, despite statistics to the contrary, that we don't produce as much as you think we do. a majority of our gdp is just debt, our economic superiority is a myth based on the faith of the world in our currency. once that finally wanes we'll have nothing else to back it up.In terms of economic power, the American economy is one of the most vibrant in the world. It isn't growing as fast as some other large countries, but that's because developing countries tend to grow faster because there is more room for growth.
as much as the next person, i don't want to see a decline of american power in the world. but there's no hope of maintaining it while we lie to ourselves. if we take an honest look at the situation we can start to devise workable measures to fix it.
Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
If the Muslim Brotherhood joins a unity govt. imo they will ultimately purge all other coalition mates. If this happens it's game over for the American position in the Greater Middle East. If this happens while Barack Obama is president, he will take all of the blame.
Sorry about that, hello luca, my name is 24107 and im just another person posting on a forum because im bored.im sorry im not a president or something to make you feel like your in some sort of exclusive club for geniouses.Who are you. We haven't been introduced.
Like Iraq? where the pretext for attacking was it was falsely said they had nukes. and over a million iraqs have died and their country ruined and shattered for years to come? im sure the iraqs see it that way, especially the ones whose loved ones are no longer breathing, and sectarian wars have broken out as the result of an invasion, i dont think iraq sent an S.O.S. to anyone to come bomb them. as far as diversion of resources, did you forget it is the oil in iraq, that the resources are being diverted and controlled by foreign nations. A famous U.S. general said ''war is a racket'' google that statement and you will find his name.America has destroyed itself for several reasons. One reason contributing to the fall is that America has diverted its resources in attempting to promote democracy
If you truly feel that way, you should worry about U.S. taxpayer money being given away by the billions to foreign nations like Egypt, Jordan, and Israel with absolutely nothing in return to your everyday average american citizen.I don't care about any one except Americans. Many Americans share that view.
Luca, you certainly aren't the sharpest tool in the shed are you?
The Muslim Brotherhood is not America's enemy. Iran is not America's enemy. Al Qaeda is not America's enemy. I'm focused on the only force on earth that intends to transform me out of existence. Toward that end, any weapon is legitimate.
