    I don't know who you guys think you're 'protecting' anyone from. Stop doing it, if it bugs you. Bail out of NATO and every other pact you're part of. Isolationism, that's the ticket. Who needs allies?
    Remember though- two Portugese soldiers died in Afghanistan. How many Americans have died because Portugal was attacked?

    Oh my, how times have changed.

    Doesn't seem that long ago that the extreme right wing were falling over themselves to praise and embrace the KGB thug whilst turning a blind eye to his clear and very obvious agenda which has been to diminish America’s influence in the world and belittle her leader. That's apparently ok though.....
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    It’s official: if you want to dramatically improve the quality of your life, move to Europe. That’s what the 18th annual Quality of Life survey from consulting firm Mercer suggests—cities in western Europe dominate the top of this year’s list of the world’s best cities to live in.
    Only seven US cities made it into the top 50, and New York wasn’t even the highest ranked among those. Vienna was named the number one best city in the world to live in (again). Other German-speaking cities did well, too—Munich, Dusseldorf, and Frankfurt were all selected into the top 10, and Zurich (where a majority of the population speaks Swiss German) was ranked the second best city in the world to live in.

    I heard Trumpy sang a little song for the Russians (behind closed doors in the Oval Orifice)

    "Hey, I just met you.
    And this is crazy.
    But here's some intel
    From an Israeli."

    Re: Donald Trump a global joke

    Best thing I read about Trump -- pardon if already mentioned -- is that NATO folk have been asked to limit their comments to 4-5 minutes to keep him from getting bored or confused. Didn't believe it. Still don't want to, but looked it up and it appears it might be true. Sad. Still hope it's not true.

    But I suppose that a 4-5 minute limit is better than a 140 character limit.

    I can understand how it is completely possible that many others across the globe believe that since the American voter selected Trump to be POTUS, and they also understand that Trump is a complete ****ing idiot, these very same people likely see Americans in general to also be complete ****ing idiots.

    It is not difficult to see that is basically how the rest of the planet currently perceives the US; how sad.

    The EU countries together already spend over three times more on their military than Russia.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...y_expenditures

    Then it comes to Sweden we have invested a lot in our military during the cold war, like for example we had compulsory military service, we developed our own fighter jets, and we would probably even have had our own nukes, if the project wasn’t stopped because of political reasons.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedis...eapons_program

    Also, there are a lot of other ways to contribute to a better world. For example, Sweden rank highest on the Good Country Index.

    As I understand a big reason for Donald Trump's victory was your low voting turnout in USA. That the biggest group was people that didn’t vote, then Americans that voted for Hillary Clinton and thirdly people that voted for Trump. That your voting turnout was around 55 % compared to around 80 % in many European countries.

    That maybe Trumps victory can lead to that Americans realize that politics and voting actual matters. That who is in the White House have a big impact. That at the same time both politicians and the media have a large responsibility to get people to be knowledgeable and care enough to vote. That as I understand it American politicians have been focusing too much on negative campaigning for a long time. While your media focus to much on polls and controversies instead of policies.

    America is FULL of bull**** riff raff; many here have no idea what voting even means. These folks are more concerned with sucking on the government teet, doing their next drug deal, getting their next bottle of whatever flavor of alcohol they are addicted to, getting their next hit of whatever legal/illegal drug they prefer, being a general sloth, not being employed, doing harm to others, various & sundry criminal activities, etc. Yes, America is FULL of riff raff bull**** that could care less about self directing their own futures via a vote.

    Me? I voted for Gary 'what is Aleppo' Johnson.
