Such diversity in the world, but the only target is bashing America, or so it seems from his posts.

Taliban's weapon are too rudimentary, that the rocket which brought down the Chinook is essentially a home modified RPG. If they have decent infantry shoulder-firing SAM & ATGM, US will be in real trouble.
The point being that the aircraft will be shot out of the sky by the same tactic used by them in Afghanistan with they assisted the Mujaheddin

thats another tired excuse.... no one has ever attacked "land called Canada" at the time... except you Americans...
and if you think your fcuking around in others people countries... makes you safe... then dont be so shocked when people fly planes into your buildings...
btw...when the ice starts melting in the Canadian North freeing up shipping lanes....and a country like Russia, starts to stake some claims...
you think you Americans are going to protect Canadian interest?
no you are going to stake a claim too...
More of that wishful thinking that you consider to be factual..."when".... What about now? What about "is" and "are?"

And yes, you have been living in our shadow since day 1. We own you. Our economy goes down - you economy goes down. We choose NOT to defend you then what?

Yes, but no major power is assisting the Taliban this time around, or the damage would be much much greater.

GD riffstar is a sociopath. He is obssessed with America and posts statistics that he makes up!

What a delusional weirdo!

It is pretty sad that his country is overshadowed by a bunch of fat people.

You guys can't beat a bunch of fat people, riff? Wood is your ace, riff? Seriously...wood? China wants to buy your wood and this is your claim to fame?

Just to clarify, you live in the shadow of a country of fat people (that run your economy) and your claim to fame is selling china a bunch of wood?

Am I getting it right?

LMFAO!!!

"no one has ever attacked the land called Canada" you welcome for that!

You think Russia is a threat? They are in worse shape than we are. Half their navy is sitting in port rusting away and their soldiers are lucky to even get paid. Yeah, us evil americans are just planning like crazy on how we can get our hands on all those trees! And seriously, how hard do you think it would be, if we actually wanted to take anything from you? Your standing army is approx 70K with another 30K in reservists. You navy has about 30 warships and your airforce is approx 85-100 fighter jets. Your country spends about 22 Billion anually for this defense force.

You call my accusation a "tired excuse" but it is the honest truth. You have used the fact that your neighbor to the south is a superpower and will defend us with their military, so we can use our money on other things. Well dude, the gig is up and needs to be for the rest of the world. We need to pull out troops out of Europe, Asia, South America and the middle east and use American men and women to secure American borders. The hell with the middle east, I wish we would have invaded mexico. We would have been much better off, more secure and actually had some gratitude as a result.

Riffstar is a little chink living in Canada. He was once resistance is futile. His main claim to fame is to spam the forum! Chinamen are little crybabies.

where is your proof you protected Canada from Russia or any invading force
I have proof Canadians protected you from radical Muslims way back when the US Embassy was stormed in Iran... we had to give 4 americans, Canadian IDs
or more recently on 9-11 when the USA shut down its airports
Canada took in 239 planes that were suppose to be landing in your airports.
Im not saying Russia is a threat... I am saying they will lay claim to the passage ways....
and I am saying the USA will probably support Russian claims....
because the USA will want to lay claim too even if you have no basis for a claim....
you have around 800 military installations around the world and like to but your head into other peoples business
and gratitude comes when you understand this is 2011... when the UN wont let others take another country
and since world war 2... a war you americans joined late
except for Grenada, Panama, and Serbia
your American forces havent done much but get their asses kicked
but you did just summed it up yourself... Canadians dont have anyone to fear except you gun happy americans...
arrogant loudmouth deadbeat prciks
You are an idiot and do nothing more than spew your ridiculous rehtoric which you cannot prove other than in your own mind. Quite wasting our time.

be easy enough... go back and fact check what the american posters are saying from post number 1 in this thread
you can also fact check me since the low iq grunt says I made up my facts... and feel free to throw anything I said that was wrong back in my face
as I know a lot of these guys would love to do so...
There is no need to group over 300 million people.
