    If anything, it s much more likely that we will be overrun by China and be speaking Chinese. They seem to own almost everything and will acquire more in the future.

    That may be a difference, in the Netherlands a person in a section will say that "I will do my best to get it for you" or "sorry, we do not have it in stock" but they will rarely use the "I" word for the company they work for.

Because we were irrelevant to their decision-making. We bowed out of Syria after painting a red line, and are shifting to a policy of containment with Iran. The complete breakdown in the relationship is a 2013 phenomena. But here you are trying to reference the Bush Administration.
    In other words Bush style hand holding was the way to go? going there and holding Saudi king's hands with a little kiss worked better than Obama inviting him to the White house?

    Living in the woods in America, I am not sure I have the freedom to say what I would do, especially after my dogs were shot a month ago, and I am not sure if I would refuse a local militia to fight against invaders either, because I would like to know who is taking over, and there would probably be no internet to research.

    If that site is in anyway associated with awrm.org (a well regulated militia) I have been banned from it in 2000 - 13 years ago. They were big anti Government "need to overthrow government" until Bush won, then they quickly disappeared, and THEN.... after Obamba won, a Tea Party appeared... American politics is interesting...

    For the uninformed or misinformed and we know that accounts for at least 52% of the voters, if your a male between 17 years of age and 45 years of age you're already a member of the unorganized militia like it or not. It's the law.

    The question is, are you a militiaman in good standing ready to serve ? Do you have a military style rifle and lots ammunition in your home ? Or are you derelict in your duties as an American ?


    10 U.S. Code 311 - Militia: composition and classes

    (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
    (b) The classes of the militia are—
    (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
    (2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

    BTW: If you are a vet and under 64 years old, don't think you're exempt defending your country.

    a) To be eligible for original enlistment in the National Guard, a person must be at least 17 years of age and under 45, or under 64 years of age and a former member of the Regular Army, Regular Navy, Regular Air Force, or Regular Marine Corps. To be eligible for reenlistment, a person must be under 64 years of age.
    (b) To be eligible for appointment as an officer of the National Guard, a person must—
    (1) be a citizen of the United States; and
    (2) be at least 18 years of age and under 64.

    Both Administrations had the Saudi's at the White House - they are allies. Having someone at the White House doesn't mean you are especially close and hand-in-glove working together; the Dalai Lama was at the White House.

    A picture of a Saudi Royal at the White House does not counteract the fact that U.S.-Saudi Relations have generally collapsed, starting with the Arab Spring and accelerating over the last year or so.

    1. I am waiting for that day like some poor bastard is waiting to watch a porn movie.
    Then you do not know what you are wishing for. The Saudi Collapse, if it happens anytime soon, is going to be one helluva chaotic mess.

    2. I was against Saddam in 1990's, I was on his side since around 2002 and not ashamed to admit it even now. I am also not ashamed to say that Hitler was one hell of a leader even if he was not on the cover of Time magazine as hero Joseph Stalin who killed 30 million of his OWN people

    then never mind. If you are fine supporting people like Saddam, Hitler, and Stalin then maybe you won't be embarrased of your current position.

    88,000,000 legal gun owners. This place would be a nightmare on a good day for any invading force. Literally, a nightmare. 88,000,000 people, with over 320,000,000 guns. That a gun for basically every person in the country. Fighting with unconventional tactics....whatever force decided to invade lost before they even landed.

    No one would need to be drafted, it'd be a battle for survival. It's no time for Democrat vs Republican bickering.

    I'd almost feel bad for any invader stepping into the South. There are normal citizens in this nation with better weaponry than foot soldiers in first world, industrialized nations and the skill to use it right.

    All this is ignoring the truly colossal feat it would be to fully invade America to begin with.

    I would happily fight for this country. No draft needed. Me and mine are ready, although I have serious doubts any invading force would last more than a couple days. Only way this country could be taken is if we gave it away or it was nuked!
