    I appreciate your opinion, but that seems extreme to me Lady. No aid, none. I don't think we should be writing a 2,3,4 billion dollar check to a prosperous country like Israel every year, we all know what that is, and it's not aid. But disaster help, why not, the work and money we traditionally supply to the worst of third world countries, straight up trade, partnerships to tackle things that are threats globally, I can't see the harm. Entangling alliances that draw us into things like the Ukraine mess, or into things like the disputes between China and Japan, hell no.

    World history is of perpetual war. What you lament in your messages is that the USA has not been defeated. You make no secret in your messages of your hatred of the USA and wish it to be destroyed. But does anyone remember your messages as to why - your explaining how corporations and government conspired to keep your brilliant inventions from being sold as reason for the fury of your messages against the USA?

    That, combined with extreme homophobia and hatred of Jews, gives the motives of why you continuously express love of Putin, hate of the USA and hate of Israel.

    There is nothing unique about the USA and war, other than being undefeated.

    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Perhaps the single stupidest, most worthless poll in the history of this forum. And that's saying a lot. I feel dumb for actually having participated in it.

    It was Buckeye and Remington.

    Samuel Bush's Buckeye Steel made the gun barrels for Remington. . . During World War I, Remington supplied 67 percent of all the weapons and ammunition used by the Allied forces.

    Are you sure you know enough about this topic to be speaking on it?
    Neither is the MK14 or the DMR yeah? Neither sniper rifles nor shotguns nor anything. Huh, good point.

    +1

    The military's only few relevant military guns are the M4 carbine, SAW, M240, and .50 cal browning I guess.

    The dozens of other guns aren't military guns.

    Allied forces or US?

    I was unaware that Britain, Canada or France used American made weapons

    Mind responding to Jerry's post in which he dished out a bunch of rekt?
