    No, there is no "other," because then you'd all pick Canada, Finland or New Zealand. You only get choices you'll hate.

    India or the Philippines seem like the lesser of the available evils here. Both are pretty highly Westernized, not known for an inclination towards war time atrocities or particularly overt forms of authoritarianism, and lack any particular reason to hate or want to exact revenge upon the American civilian population for perceived past injustices.

    I'd probably choose India, as most of the people I have met from India (which is a very considerable number), I like. In spite of their hanging on to the caste system, I find Indians to be generally of pleasant demeanor and down to earth, with a good sense of humor.

    Ivory Coast. Easiest, perhaps, to toss out in the Revolution.

    I really respected what the Filipino's did for the Lao during that war.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    We're actually debating reality and logistics here? North Korea is ****ing Best Korea, and a North Korean America would also be ****ing Best America. Beat that.

    I'd rather laugh at it. Beating it would involving coaching the opposing team too, and there's that whole conflict of interest thing...
